Hi,

  • 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.

  • 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.

My lg dishwashers door will drop open suddenly


If it is sudden opening during cycle then it is due to pressure build up inside the dishwasher is forcing the door to open.

a) Most likely your door latch is not holding proper enough. Quite common on LG.

b) May be your vent in the dishwasher is blocked so the pressure inside cannot get out. If vent blocked you have plate drying problems too.

c) Is the dishwasher leveled properly. Is it leaning to the front. This will be that extra help for the door to open when pressure build up inside the dishwasher.

Our dishwasher is blinking CL - i think this means 'Close'... Even when the door is properly closed, it blinks CL and won't start!! Help!


Hi


Error CL appears when the dishwasher control detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch & seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Where do you put the dish wash detergent for my dish washer!


Hi, for most dishwashers the detergent cup is behind a little door in the door of the dishwasher.. snap open the door and place the detergent in the cup while the door is open and down, then close the little door and then close the dishwasher door...

then you are ready to roll...

Dishwasher door will not open


You will have to remove the mounting screws holding the dishwasher in place. Then pull the dishwasher out of the space a couple inches.
You can then activate the door catch from the top to open the dishwasher.
Once you have it open,
You will have to open the control panel by removing the 6 screws across the top inside of the door. You can then examine the door latch assembly to find out what part is at fault.

Make sure that you do not open the door during the wash cycle. Wait until all the cycles are complete before opening the door. Especially don't open the door during the drying cycle.

Hi chrissy99

Not sure what do you mean by keeping the door to stay open. Well if you want to keep the door open during operation , identify the mechanism that triggers the on button .

In my dishwasher to check if it function properly , I keep a small wedge / strip near the handle / button which opens the door.
