GE Monogram ZBD0710 Dishwasher

The handle has become loose but I don't see any allen screws to tighten. The owners manual and installation guide don't offer any help.

    The post holding the handle to the door is tight. The handle is loose from the posts. How do you get the end caps off to access what I suspect are set screws?

    same problem. can't figure out how to tighten the handle to the post. 

  • mitchcbs Feb 26, 2009

    My problem is that while the handle is properly tightened to the short posts (called standoffs?), the posts themselves are coming loose from the dishwasher door. Do I need to remove the entire inside panel of the door to get at these screws, or do I just remove or loosen the two large phillips-screws nearest the latch?

    Thanks!

    There is no way to remove the inside panel by just removing two phillips head screws. I actually had to remove all and the entire guts were falling out all over. I had to put inside panel back on and am still without handle or any way to put handle back on. I hate G.E. what a mess! Oh Yeah, I have the ZBD6880 Model.

THIS IS THE SOLUTION!
I was having the same problem with my Monogram dishwasher and oven.  Here's what to do.  You must fully remove the handle from the appliance.  Down the barrel of the standoff is a hex screw that, when tightened with an allen wrench, will draw the standoff tight to the handle again.  There is no need to remove the end caps.

The solution from davidburroug is the one. The local appliance repair store told me I would have to buy a new handle! Thank goodness this solution appeared before I went to the expense.

Agree, this procedure works to tighten the main post to the door. What about the handle to the post? Again no allen screws present, but it apprears each end of the handle has a cap on it. How do you remove those caps to [hopefully] gain access to the bolt to tighten.

Im am going to try Solution 4, I was wondering about the two screws near the door latch. You neeed to get inside the front cover to tighten the standoffs down. What a crapy design..... it sounds like everyone has the same issue I do. GE sould change this design, and have a recall. Pisses me off............

You need to remove the front panel to tighten the handle mounting bolts from the inside. Open the dishwasher door and remove the phillips head screws from the inside of the front panel. The two phillips nearest the door latch only need to be loosened, not completely removed.

GE dishwasher model GLD5868V15SS handle loose


This model comes with two types of doors. One with a single panel with integrated control on top or a two part door with control unit in front. The handle varies.

If you have a single door panel with handle bar across from right to left then you need to carefully unscrew the back panel screws and free up the front panel. the handle is screwed to the front panel from inside. Once you tighten carefully put the back door panel in and tighten. Take photos along the way to make sure you get back where you started. Also unplug dishwasher before working on it.

If you have a two part door with front control then handle and access to it is different. See diagram on this website for blow up of the panel and location of handle (part 713).

Loose door handle


Here is the link to the installation manual; http://www.bshextranet.com/files/techtoolbox/SHV46C13-SHX43Cii.pdf pages 14 and 9 of the manual (16 and 11 of the pdf) describe how to remove the toe panel, and the door facia panel. You should then be able to access where the handle is attached. Hope this helps :)

I have to replace the handle / latch assembly on a GE Monogram Dishwasher Model #ZBD6600G03SS. For the love of me I can't see how to do it. Do I have to get at it from inside, outside, both sides...


Hi

If the dishwasher door will not latch on your GE Monogram dishwasher and it is a new appliance, check that the door is not hitting screws or cabinets underneath the counter. For a new dishwasher, you might also need to push in the top of the control panel as you latch the door. The new gaskets might not have had time to seat properly. It may be necessary to run up to 10 dishwasher cycles for the heat from the washer to seat the gasket, which becomes more flexible after it is used a few times. For older Monogram dishwashers, check the loading rack to be sure no dishes are protruding beyond the back or front of the racks and that no dishes have fallen through to the lower rack. If dishes are dangling down into the lower rack, they could stop the lower rack from completely rolling into the dishwasher and could also stop the spray arm from rotating. Check that no silverware is obstructing the door.

Loose door handle on ge profile dishwasher


Take the inside panel off.  The 2 screws near the latch only need to be loosened.  Once the handle is off, you will find an allen bolt inside the shaft of the handle support.  Tighten and you are done.

Dishwasher handle


There should be a slot for an allen rench on the under side of the handle that will tighten the handle up.
