Our model is a 920 Serial no UUM492989. The door will not clik shut. If I hold it closed it will work. It appears that the latch in the door has a wee bit broken off it which prevents the door from shuting . Can this be fixed?

Driver door closed but door alarm and lock keep going off?


Sounds like the door latch is not closing all the way, Try spraying some WD40 into the latch in the door where it hits the striker post. Hold the door handle up and bump the door shut and open while holding the handle up on the out side several times, This should loosen the latch up and the door should close and latch. The more you spray and work the door the better it should get. If not the latching mechanisim may need replaced. I hope I have help you sovle the alarm problem.

You have water in the latch mechanism. To solve the problem apply heat to the latch area of the door. I use a propane torch but a hair dryer or heat gun will also work. They will take longer though. Be careful with the torch so you don't burn the paint. hold it fairly close but keep it moving constantly. You will see the paint change appearance when you start to apply heat, keep heating until it changes back. At that point the latch will work. Close and open the door a few times and it should keep working for a while. The best thing to do is spray it with some WD-40 or RustCheck as soon as you get it working. Put the nozzle on the can and bend it right into the latch and spray around heavily. This should keep it from freezing up again. Hope this helps.

If the latch is in the closed position, simply use a screwdriver to pry as if the door was being opened at the same time as you pull on the handle to open it. This will return the latching part to its proper position and you can then close the door. If the latch is already open and won't close when you shut the door, the quickest way to get it closed is to heat the latch with a blowtorch. Don't get close enough to the door that you scorch and burn the paint but heat the area arond the latch for about 30 seconds or so and the door should latch. You could also do this with a hair dryer or heat gun but it will take longer. Open and close it a few times quickly and it should work properly for a while. To keep it from happening again, once you have it working freely then spray into the latch with some WD-40 or RustCheck. Don't be shy with the spray and get it right into the latch through the door. If it keeps being a problem then before you spray it with a lubricant use a small can of lock de-icer once you have the door working. After that put the lubricant in. Hope this helps.

Inspect the door and when you open it, does the latch hold the door closed? If not the dryer door / latch may need to be replaced.
But check the door as it opens... the door hinges may have been damaged, causing the door to not close properly and the latch may not be damaged, only the hinges.
Good Luck!

Door wont stay shut


The door latch could be closed, in other words, the door thinks it shut into the striker. Take and hold the door handle open, like your trying to open the door, hold the handle out or up and at the same time open the latch, it may be stuck or closed...If that's not it, you may have to re-align the latch to the striker, the striker will come loose with a torx bit. Loosen it up, and move it around and re tighten, it's a trial and error deal, just keep trying different positions until if works right...

Can't close Bosch Dishwasher door


I had same problem and was alarmed at the idea of taking the door apart, so I tried the 2 screwdriver option described below - it works!

Open door and get two small screwdirvers behind each side of the catch inside the top of the door and gently apply pressure. The catch should reset itself on 'open' and allow you to shut the door again.

Thanks to all for their postings and helpful advice!
