Question about Dishwashers

Latch is not working properly

I a new Bosch SHE6AF02UC. The latch seems to somewhat difficult to operate closing and opening. The dishwasher is level. Is there a adjustment that can be done. This is my second Bosch dishwasher. The latch on my other washer works like a charm...almost like its magnetic. the new one requires some exertion to open and close.

It's possible the machine is slightly twisted.
Try re-levelling it to start.
You can usually tell when the door is not quite closed if it looks out-of-centre.

The next thing to check is lubrication of the catch. Try some WD-40 in the latch mechanism.

If still no better, then the latch may need adjusting by removing the front panel (unplug machine before doing this).
Grease the moving parts and adjust catch for easy closing.

I have a Bosch SMU2042UC/14 dishwasher. The door will not latch. I have replaced the door latch and handle and still have the same problem. The dishwasher still works, will a little leaking, even though...


HI,

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Bosch sms63mo8au 12 door latch


Could be the latch that's attached to the top of the outer shell frame has become loose and is out of alignment, so its not able to close properly. Pull the unit out from under the countertop and have a look at whats happening with the latches when you try to close and lock the door. Adjust as need.

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.

Unable to turn off the delay start and the latch is in the wrong position so that the door will not close properly. Also, there is no digital display--it remains dark. I tried the cancel/drain, which...


Pull the open handle to open the latch up and try to get it to close. Disconnect the power to the machine for a few minutes. Run a cycle that you don't usually run. See if that helps.

Opened door during cycle, latch now stuck in closed position, can't re-close


twist a paperclip around some pliers so you have a circle opening. then hook the paperclip around the latch and pull outward with the pliers. once the latch is facing outwards the door should close again

Opened door on cycle, will not continue cycle after closing door


The most common problem for a dishwasher to not restart after the door being closed is a failed door latch interlock switch. Adjusting / repairing it is not too difficult.

Of course this assumes that the Dishwasher power circuit from the circuit breaker remains powered up.

Post back here if you are looking for more details.

Good Luck!

Bosch SHY56A Dishwasher


if the door doesn't shut, the push buttons should not work. that way you are not running your d/w with the door open. check the door latch, as it seems to be malfunctioning. if the d/w still does not work, replace the door latch.

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!
