Firstly, thanks Craig. Followed ur instructions.
However, my solution was happily easier although I completed Craigs solution without success.

Above the catch on the main body there is a "D" ring of wire which the catch engages. It is adjustable, backwards and forwards. It is held by a screw. My screw was loose so every time you closed the door the ring moved back stopping it engaging with the catch.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: matsui mf160 starts its wash cycle and timer stops

on most machines, the timer will not run if the water is not up to temp. if the inside is plenty hot mid-cycle, then your heating element is probably good. it is the thermometer that needs located and checked. if the inside is not steamy, then your heating element is the most likely culprit.
don't hate your dishwasher. it just wants to make sure that you get a full wash cycle at a hot enough temp. to get the dishes clean. good luck

SOURCE: matsui mf160 dishwasher not heating the water

Hot water heatermag-glass_10x10.gif elements will need to be replaced when there is no hot water, apparently less hot water or the hot water is taking longer to recover after showers, laundry, dishwashing or other demands on hot water. It is not difficult to replace a hot water heater element. Consult the documentation so you can purchase the right element for your hot water heater. If you do not have the documentation, write down the make and model information and take that information with you to a supply store. The store clerk will help you find the right element for your hot water heater.

  1. Step 1 Turn off all power supply to the hot water heater. Turn off the cold water supply to the water heater. Attach a garden hose to the bottom spigot of the hot water heater and open the valve to drain the unit.
  2. Step 2 Hot water heatersmag-glass_10x10.gif typically have an upper and lower element. Open both control panels with a screwdriver. There will be insulation behind each panel. Fold the insulation out of the way; the elements and thermostats will be visible.
    Disconnect the wires from the element and remove the element. If the element is installed with a mounting plate, remove the bolts with a socket wrench. If the element is not installed with a mounting plate, remove with an element wrench.
  3. Step 3 Clean the gaskets and the gasket area on the hot water heater tank. Install the new elements by inserting them into the hole. Be sure the gaskets are tightly in place. If the element is installed with a mounting plate, tighten opposite diagonal bolts so the element stays straight in the tank. If the element is installed with an element wrench, use the element wrench to install the new elements.
  4. Step 4 Reconnect the wires for each element. Close the drain valve. Open the cold water supply. Do not turn the power supply back on yet. The tank must be filled completely before turning the power supply back on to the hot water heater. Open a hot water valve; the hot water faucet on a tub is a good option. When all trapped air has escaped and the water is flowing freely from the spigot without air bubbles, the power supply can be turned back on to the hot water heater. After filling, inspect the area around the elements for any signs of leaking. If everything looks good, reposition the insulation and replace the control panel access covers

SOURCE: matsui mf160 dishwasher salt indicator will no go out

I think I have the answer.

On Yahoo Answers Blue Rizla Girl put up the idea that the sensor is some form of hydrometer. (i.e. floats in salty water sinks if not salty enough)

Based on this thought I postulated that the sensor is some form of hydrometer float in a tube with perhaps an optical sensor.

If this is correct why is it not working?

Is it because the float is stuck at the bottom of the tube, perhaps by some food debris? If so how can we fix it?

This is what I did on my Hotpoint FWD60:-

I took the salt filler cap off. There was no salt in the reservoir as it has been a problem for months, and I was only refilling it when dishes were not coming clean.

I poured 2 litres of hot water into the salt reservoir.

I then put the empty machine on the intensive 65 degree wash, half load and with the reservoir cap still OFF.

When finished I filled up with salt and HEY PRESTO the salt light is OFF!!!!

Just hope it stays that way until the reservoir really needs refilling.

While I was down on my hands and knees I took the opportunity to clean the filters in the sump. They do get full of bits!

I also flushed the sump by dashing a couple of cups of hot water into it and then bailing it out with a small yoghurt pot. I repeated this until the water in the yoghurt pot and the sump no longer had any signs of bits in them. (Dashing = vigorously pour)

I was amazed at how many bits I got out, especially considering I had given the machine a good clean in the past 6 weeks.

I even got part of a paper label!

So there we have it, try it out and report back.

When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these: Latch Springs Hinges Door seal Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs. Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough. Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Matsui MF160 door tension is still strong after adjustment. Program cycle takes 150mins


Time consumption depends on the cycle chosen. For a full complete wash 150 mts is ok.

Also check whether water flow to your machine is free from clogging! Check the strainer attched to the water whose connecting junction.

My matsui dishwasher, seems to have broken and will not open. Is there anyway to get door open


Hi,The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.
Also the latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.

Door won't close wont lock closed


Check the following if you have problem with your doors:

1)The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.
If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.


2)Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.


3)The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.


4)If your dishwasher is new or if you have just replaced a door seal the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Door well not stay closed.our door hinges replaceable


If your machine is a Hobart LX series, changing the hinges will probably not remedy your door closing issue.

I'd start at the door magnet. It's located under the handle at the top RH side of the door. Verify that it is there. Next I'd check to see if the other magnet is in place at the top front RH side of the top interior 'ceiling'. It's held in place by a bracket that runs the entire width of the unit.

When the door is closed, these two magnets attract to each other with a firm "snap" and that is what keeps the door closed.

If your door wants to spring open slightly or lazily rest closed without the above mentioned "snap" then you'll need to visually inspect the bottom edge of the door for any cracks or deformation, particularly in the corners. This deformation will cause the bottom of the door to bind against the lower threshold of the machine and keep it from closing. You'll have to remove the door to properly inspect and reform it.

Sadly, my money is on the door being deformed in some way. Hope this helps.
