Hoover DT999 - Jammed Door

I can only open the door half way. It feels like it is stuck on something and I don't want to force it. Can I take the door off easily to try to fix it?

No. you dont want to take the door off. 1st thing to do is take off the side panels for access to door hinges and you should be able to see what is going wrong.
p.s. take the top panel off first before removing the side panels

You should be able to feel the lock disengage. Also feel the latch moving. If you can feel this, then the door is jammed, not the lock or handle. They do swell. You'll just have to force it open. You might try spraying some lube at the top and bottom, where you suggested it feels stuck.

How do I fit a new door gasket to a Hoover DT999 dishwasher (the short horizontal seal at the bottom of the door, not the longer one which wraps around the inside of the body of the machine)?


Well I just did this (ew!)

basically it just pulls out of a slot downwards (when doors open) but there's not much space so I took out a few screws to free the door up a bit.

So - sitting with the machine in front of you and door open down towards you:

I took out the two machine screws that hold the door on to the spring/hinge mechanism. Those are the two on the side of the door near to the hinge/bottom.
I also took out 3 of the screws that screw the inside metal bit of the door on to the plastic fron of the door.

You'll notice that the springs then force the inside and outside of the door apart and you've got some free space to pull the bottom seal out of the metal door. Then clean everything and squeeze the new seal in.

You're probably not going to be able to thread it in from one end.

When you're putting those two machine screws back in you'll probably need to do the top screw (nearest you when door open) with the door almost closed so that the spring is most relaxed and will let you line up the two holes.

Hope that helps

Wahing machine Tricity Bedix AW1260W-Door problem


probably handle mechanism broken. to open is a bit difficult.
disconnect from mains and take top off.
feel down the cabinet front on the side where the door handle and opposite the door handle you will find the door interlock. in the door interlock, you will find the end of the door peg. force this towards the middle of the machine and with luck the door will open.
anothetr method is to break the handle off and use a small screwdriver on the door peg
