Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher
It looks like the locking mechanism in the door is staying locked so the door will not shut.
Is this a problem that just happened at once or gradually got worse?
Does the D/W seem to be installed tightly to counter??If it is firmly mounted than you need to take loose the screws that are holding it in place to your counter.Usually there are just 2 of them.Only remove these if the door seems to be hitting something just before it is shut.By opening & closing slowely I need to know if the door seems like it bumps the inside right before its locked.By removing the 2 screws that hold this snug it will allow the squarness of the cabinet to become free & the door will align itself.Alot of installers over tighten the legs & lift the dishwasher into the counter so high that it forces the door to miss the Latch.I'll help you through this ,so let me know ,Thank You!
