Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher
My door doesn't seal/catch when closing. Machine still works if something pushed against the door. Is the catch broken? Is there anything I can do to repair it, or do I need a technician and what is the going rate?
If the door switchmechanism is still in place inside the door, you should be able to see it when you open the door ,it is visible on the inside if the door top centre if it is intact then it could be that the actuator bracket has moved, this is located under the top panel front centre and is held in position by an hexagonal nut. the top is secured at the back of the machine by 2 screws one on the left and one on the right remove the two screws slide the top to the rear approx 1/2 inch lift off the top you can now access the door catch bracket, close the door and adjust the bracket forward so that it latches securely but don't position it to far forward or it could bottom on the back of the door mechanism, if everthing is in place unit should be fixed, reposition top onto the two front lugs and slide top gently forward replace the two screwws at the back and you should be in business
