My door will not close so that I can start the dishwasher

I have checked the trays - nothing is blocking the doorway - it seems that the lock will not release to allow the door to fully close.

While the washer is on and the water starts the door opens how to fix this? thanks

Hello Shirin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Push in the top and bottom trays. Close the door. Now, open the door. Are either the top or bottom trays pushed out?

In the bottom center is your water distribution vanes. Are they stuck up in the operating mode? Push the center water distribution vane down, push the top and bottom trays in, close the door and reopen. Are the upper or bottom tray sticking out? inspect the guide rails. Is there something blocking them?

So, your problem is:
1.) The trays are pushing against the door because they will not go in all of the way.
2.) You have a broken latch assembly.

You did not provide a model number. This is on a tag either on the top of the door or on the face of your dishwasher after you open the door

Dishwasher door does not close

Does not close or does not lock? If not locking the latching mechanism probably got loose and needs the screws re-tightened. If its not closing fully something is blocking it, loose door gasket, tray out too far, item stuck in behind tray.shelf etc.

My garage door will open just fine, but when I try to close it the light blinks 3-5 times and then I have to press to button and hold it until the door closes completely. what can be the issue?

Check the obstruction sensors and for anything blocking the doorway. If both sensors do not have the appropriate lights on, adjust them to get the beam across the doorway to the opposite sensor. (My units have amber and green lights on different sides. Both lights must be on.)

I hope this helps.

(we often get the sensors out of alignment when someone walks too close to the rail of the door. Weeds and bright sunshine can also interrupt the light beam.)

did you hold the start/resume button for at least 3 seconds if this works the dishwasher will start ok but if there is a fault it will fail again best you contact your nearest service agent good luck

It seems when I pushe button to start nothing

Some fault in the dishwasher is causing it to believe the door is not locked.

I would check the door lock.

check this youtube video out for the location of the door switch.

(quality of video may not be the best but gives an idea of its location).

If you can give me the exact model number I can find out more details of the problem you are having.

The auto door is not closing all the way sometimes it opens after going halfway then sometimes it closes all the way how can this happen nothing is blocking the doorway

How long have you had this vehicle? In 2001 a recall was issued for the Silhouette concerning the latch and the motor on the powered passenger side door. Did you engage the override switch to see if you could manually open and close the door?

I strongly recommend you take your van to a GM dealer and have their service department check to see if the recall was taken care of on yoru vehicle.

How do I check/get to hinges/springs in door? Upon closing door I need to shift it to my right about 1/4 inch just before it closes. No leak.. I seems like something blocking it but the is nothing...

The door is attached by two spring loaded hinges lie on most oven doors. Pull it off. One of them is either damaged or bent. Try doing this, and if that seems to be the problem, you can find them at any local Sears or equivalent.
