Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLBL Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

The door no longer automaticly closes.


The door will not close itself - no tension in the door.
I looked at the manual and it notes that you have to have the dishwasher pulled out to get access to the spring attached to the back leg. Is that the only option or might their be another way to get to it or another reason why the door no longer closes by itself.

Hi,

It is usually the cable that breaks. The cable attaches the door to the spring. But unfortunately the dishwasher would need to come out at least a few inches to get to the cable and springs. I have put together some instructions that might help describe what needs to be done, if you want to take a look at the link and let me know what you think I can try and help you with it.

The garage door will open and then close then open and then the light starts to flash it's a Merlin 230t


This just happened to me. The issue was that the chain that the motor moves back and forth to open/close the door needed to be tightened as the tension had become slack, so the door was hitting the ground hard when it closed and the system automatically raised the door. I closed the door by adjusting the downward travel and then tightened the chain tension by twisting the bit at the of the chain (you'll see it and can use your fingers to do this), once done, then it was a matter of adjusting the upward and downward travel knobs and testing the door to make sure the door was back to normal.

The motor runs but it only opens a few inches and slowly goes back down its a chamberlain whisper drive model HD900D


Hi. I have seen this before, although usually not from chamberlain garage door openers.

Pull the release cord that unlocks the door from the opener, and manually open the door ALL the way open.

Then lock back in place in the open position.

Then use automatic opener to shut door.

It will close very slowly, but should close all the way.

Then, open the door again using the remote, and the door will once again open slowly, this time it should open all the way.

Then close door with remote, and door should now close as it is supposed, with the proper speed.

The slow opening and shutting is the system position sensor resetting itself.

This is why your door is acting up.

I would also look up by the belt drive connects to the front of the garage door opening, to make sure there isn't any dirt, cobwebs, or other obstructions on the sensor that may cause it to re-close the way it does.

Lift master Garage doors the door doesn't close. once i press the button to close my garage door it shuts the door momentarily and then it opens right back up by itself. nothing is blocking the sensors.


Too much tension on the door can make the "brain" respond by opening the door, thinks something is in the way.... check for binding tracks or wheel guides, loose bolts, dry chain, tension on cables or springs ( be careful here), misaligned sensors....

Gdm-73 how to adjust the door closing?


there is no spring tension on refrigerator doors,you adjust the front legs slightly higher than the rear legs and this forces a small amount of incline and gravity on the door to help it close on its own

How to switch back to automatic after manually close the garage d


mikey-moore's advice helped me figure out what to do but it's not exactly what I had to do. Manually open the garage door all the way. Then hit the automatic button you normally would use to open and close your garage door. The bracket slides back and locks into place. Hit the automatic button again and the garage door should automatically close.

I have a whirlpool the refrigerator door will not stay close.


It shouldn't be pushing the door itself...you see the magnet that is used in the refrigerators are not repulsive.It doesn't get weaken that easily but what you can do is check if there isn't something bulging out of the fridge and pushing the door...take out all the things from inside and then try closing the door again. If door opens up again then definitely you have to look for a new gasket.
