One or both of the door springs have broken causeing the door to drop.You haven't mention the brand or model so it's hard to help.The door not closeing could be because the door dropped open & is distorted or the door might be hitting a basket if the basket has been put in back to front.

When I hit the start button on my GE dishes washer the light in the front is blinking and it will not go on


This sometimes happens when there is a problem with the door latch system or switch. Your door may be closed but the control still thinks it is open. Check the door latch and switch alignment. GE had a problem with the doors dropping slightly about a year ago. the latch looks like a arrow head on top of the door center that pushes into the switch that is mounted on the dishwasher body. If the arrow head is slightly lower than the part on the body you will get the exact problem you are having. GE has hinge shims that they install to raise the door up slightly to fix the problem. Not sure your dishwasher is one of these without a model number.

TRAY UNDER DOOR DOESNT OPEN AND SHUT PROPERLY MODELCCP-509


One of the tabs on the bottom of the drop panel (the lower metal door that folds out) is bent incorrectly. Try bending it a little which every direction is needed to close the drop panel.

Do not break it, there are no replacement parts for that brand.

Door latch not working on Frigidaire 18 in.


Hi -

The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Why won't my car start after the temperature drop


Either your battery is old do not carry charge from the alternator. Or the charge is leaked from your batter due to door or some light is open. Check basic doors and other stuff closed.

I have a 2002 chevy blazer that the driver side door won't close all the way but it's NOT the latch inside the door, the door seems to be lower than the latch.


Sounds like your door hinges are worn. Pin and bushing kits are available at parts stores, and with a little patience are not awful to install. Installing a pair of these should restore the door to the original height, and allow the door to close properly.

Refrigerator door has slowly dropped lower than freezer door and now we are having trouble closing refrigerator door


The door can be adjusted back up by turning the bolt at the bottom of the door. Put a drop of locktight on the bolt so this will not happen agian. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/Refrigerator-repair.html

I want to fit a wooden door to a intagrated dishwasher stoves


If your dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif door is not closing properly or has developed a leak, it may be time to replace the entire door assembly. Some other signs of a defective door include sagging, difficulty pulling the door back up into a closed position and a door that feels heavier as it drops open. Replacing a dishwasher door is not that hard, but includes several springs and hinges that must be aligned correctly or the door will not fit correctly in the opening.
  1. tep 1 Unplug the dishwasher and shut off the water before attempting to remove any parts. If you cannot reach the electrical outlet, you can turn off the breaker switch that controls the electricity for the kitchen. Remove the drain hose that runs from the dishwasher unit to the sink drain.
  2. Step 2 Pull the dishwasher out from the cabinet until you have clear access to the side of the unit. Ask a friend for help with this part if the unit is too heavy for you to slide out without straining your back.
  3. Step 3 Check your dishwasher's owner's manual to find out exactly how the outer door panels are removed. Some models have a two-panel door where the control panel must be removed before the lower panel will come off. Otherwise, the door panel should be one solid piece or a two-piece assembly that allows the lower section to be removed separately to access the springs and hinges.
  4. Step 4 Remove the springs at the bottom of the door. Depending on the type of dishwasher you have, there may be a tension adjustment dial or simply a series of holes at different distances from the edge of the unit. If you have a tension controller, adjust it to a loose setting to make it easier to remove the door springs. Unhook the door springs from the hinge plate. Some dishwashersmag-glass_10x10.gif may have a cable and pulley system attached to the door springs. Check your owner's manual for removal instructions if this is the case with your model.
  5. Step 5 Use pliers to gently pull back on the door hinge plate's tab until the slot opens for the hinge pin to come out. Take out the screws holding the door hinge plate onto the front of the door panel. Hold onto the door assembly while gradually opening the door. Once the door drops down, you should be able to remove it by sliding the door off the hinge pinAlways wear safety glasses when working with the springs and hinges involved with a dishwasher door assembly. These items can fly off at high speed and cause serious injury to the eye.
