My elextrolux Esl63010 integrated dishwasher door latch wont close properly, it doesnt click shut, it also starts the cycle when the door is open?


Sounds as if your door lock has gone over the cam or faulty, first plug out appliance look into the hole in the top of the door and with something like a small screwdriver pull back the cam now when you go to close the door make sure the striker is in line with the lock, if the cam does not pull back you will need to replace the lock.

Bosch sms63mo8au 12 door latch


Could be the latch that's attached to the top of the outer shell frame has become loose and is out of alignment, so its not able to close properly. Pull the unit out from under the countertop and have a look at whats happening with the latches when you try to close and lock the door. Adjust as need.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS30IXBL door locked open, will not close


There should be a type of hook inside the hole where the door latches to the machine. Hold the handle up and rotate the hook latch so the open side is pointing towards the machine. The click you heard was the latch that holds the door closed moving to the closed position when the door was open, and it needs to be in the release position.

The door on my kenmore elite dishwasher will not close or lock


Hi, the "latch keeper" has gotten out of alignment. You'll need to adjust it.
All you'll need is a Phillips screwdriver to fix this. Open the door and look at the "latch keeper" (it's not on the door, but on the frame). It's the thing that the door lock/latch grabs on to when you try to lock the door. There are 2 screws holding it in place. Loosen these, pull the keeper toward you a bit and tighten the screws to lock it in. Now try your door.
This may take several attempts to get it just right, because you want the door closing tight enough so as not to allow a water leak and loose enough for you to close it easily.

I have a Bosch dishwasher purchased in 1996 or 97. The dishwasher stopped working part way through the wash cycle. The on/off light does not come on. The on/off light does come on, at times, when you...


It sounds like the problem maybe with the door lock circuit. This is a safety feature that is the door lock mechanism, it completes the circuit to allow the dishwasher to run when the door is locked. Reading your trouble note you state the light goes out when you attempt to close the door. Light out means there is no circuit through the door lock mechanism so the dishwasher will not work. Take a look at the lock with the door open, make sure it seats properly, though it maybe opened internally, this would require a professional to fix.

The handle of my Bosch exxcel dishwasher is stuck inwards and doesnt move, this stops the door from closing - when pushed shut it pops back open. How can I fix this?


i usually use 2 thin bladed screwdrivrs and flip the catch back over without dismantelling the door.
for the catch to flip usually means the unit is not level as the door is not closing squarely..

Rinse cycle continues after the door is open


There is a door interlock within the door assembly. I believe it's mechanically stuck rather than needing replacing.

Turn off & unplug. You should be able to get to the internals of the door via screws around the edge. The interlock will be very close to the handle catch. Check operation by inserting a dummy catch to lock onto it.

If it is stuck solid - order a replacement.
