Question about Dishwashers
My dishwasher door is closed and stuck. Something in the latch mechanism seems to have broken and I cannot open the door. The lever/latch located in center and underneath the console feels loose and not completely attached. How do I open the door? I have the same problem latch stuck up inside dishwasher and can't open now, its a whirlpool don't know the model# I have a "DeGree" under-bench dishwasher - can't find anything about it on the web, so I assume it's a re-badged brand. Door latch is stuck and there are no screws to gain access. Have pulled the D/W out from under the bench and can see the latch when I look from the side of the door. I have fed a heavy wire through the side and tried to lift the latch, but it's stuck fast. Any other suggestions?
Its very east to open. Take the top cover plate off the appliance, undoing the screws at tha back and it will reveal the latch.

If it is a LG type, it is fitted with an overcentre type latch.
There is no need to remove anything. Wedge your fingers behind the door and thumbs on the front cover.
Apply pressure on the door - that is all that is required. Try to do it evenly, i.e. same pressure both sides, otherwise you may bend the door. Boykie
