How do I open the cd drawer?


Look for a small tiny hole right below the CD drawer, use a paper clip and insert. That hole if made for when a CD is stuck and the drawer will not open, its more like a manual lock and needs to be pushed in with a small metal wire to unlock the drawer, mind you that the computer has to be running.

Sounds like there's something stuck inside the DVD drawer that blocks the drawer from opening if it's not its side. Try turning it over onto the other side, just for a minute, and see if it opens. If it does, there's something blocking the drawer. If it doesn't, you'll probably need a new drive, as that one's literally worn out...which I've only seen twice.

Hi all the lights are flasing and top draw is stuck on my DD605 have switched on and off at the plug but still draw will only open if you really pull it -bottomdraw fine - any thoughts?


the lid that closes down to seal the drawer is stuck down. two things will cause this, either the lid motors or the main board that controls them. it is a simple enough repair but with these dishwasher drawers it is better to get a professional out to fix it. all parts twist and click on and are very easy broke giving you extra cost.

I have a 4 draw Plano Tackle box as I have something stuck behind I can't close bottom draw,can you tell me how to remove draw as I've tried and cannot remove regards Sno


Use a long flat blade screw driver with a 1/4 inch blade. From either the right or left side, with the top drawer fully open, take the screw driver and place the blade between the inside of the outer casing and the drawer guide and gently pry the casing away from the drawer guide and pull the drawer open until you release the side catch on the drawer. You only need to free one side, and the drawer will sort of pivot out and the other side will be free at that point as well. Repeat for the rest of the drawers except for the bottom drawer which you will be able to access anything behind it as the upper drawers will not longer be blocking access when removed. I had a small bag of sinkers sitting on the bottom.

Dishwasher lid stuck


the lids on dishdrawers are pulled down and sealed by lid activaters. there r two types, the screw type and the magnetic solonoid type. the reason your draw gets stuck is your lid activator is not releasing. there are 2 reasons for this 1st- 1 or both activators are faulty. 2nd the lid activator control board is faulty, which is located under the bottom drawer.pull the draw out and see if u can see if the lid is down on 1 side or both sides.please reply 4 more help.

Drawers wont open or close.


I will assume you are talking about the CD/DVD drive drawer.

Get a large paper clip. unbend it part way and use the straight end to push the drawer out using the little hole located on the front of your drive.

You may have a stuck disk in the drive.

DVD draw sticking


sounds like the gears are worn!! next time you get it open look underneath and you will see some round gears. put some vaseline on them, not too much and open and close the drawer a number of times to work the grease in. all equipment needs lubrication of some sort !!

DVD drawer stuck out


Try to unplug the unit from its power source, give it a minute then plug it back in.If open appears on the window, hit the eject button. See if that will work for you. If that dont work, hit source and on at the same time, then eject if open appears in the window. That should close the draw for you.
