The idea is to lift up on the part of the latch that is fixed to the body of the washer. The door part of the latch slides under this peice. If the handle mechanism is broken, it will not depres the door part of the latch to allow it to open. therefore, we have to pickup the latch part fixed to the body.

To get the door open, take a clothes hanger and cut off a 12" peice with a pair of pliers. Bend the last 1.25" at 90 degress angle. Make another bend about 4 " from that to make another 90 degree angle. This will give you leverage. Insert the first bent end between the top of the door and the counter. Rotate it so that the end is facing down. Feel for a metal plate. When you hit the plate with the probe, turn your hanger so that it lifts up the plate and simultaneously pull on the door handle. The door should come open.

Now you have to get the handle repaired, but at least you know how to open the door.

Driver side door latch broke - won't open from inside. probably cable broke


You're probably right. But it may have just come loose. Either way, you'll have to remove the door panel to find out. Take the screws out of the door panel (usually in latch and pull handle) & pop the door panel off carefully do as not to damage any of the clips. Also, if you have manual windows, pop the ring off from where the crank handle goes into the door panel and pull off the crank handle. If you have power windows, just disconnect the wiring harness. If the cable just came loose, just reattach it. If the cackle broke, you can find them online or in auto parts store for 20-30 bucks. Good luck!

Door wont open


I believe your best answer can be found here (ensuring again the power is disconnected before beginning):
http://www.fixya.com/support/t116203-dishwasher_door_latch
I would suggest finding the full model number, comparing to the list at this Sears site, and viewing the "door and latch" manual for your specific model number. This will provide insight on how the door is assembled, and can provide details on what part(s) you might need to order.
Hope this helps.

Can't open door


get a coat hanger or flexible wire and try to run it under latch from the top. This may be difficult depending on how your countertop is. Once it's under the latch from one side to the other, pull up on both sides of wire to raise the latching mechanism. Open door.

Hood latch release inside cable will not realease hood


The cables and latch become dirty and corroded,and the spring wrapped cabbles can even rust on the inside.
The cable itself may have broke.
if you are able you can lay down under the front reach up through the grill and you just have to feel your way take a short screw driver and feel where the cable connects to the latch,use the screwdriver for a lever and pry the latch open.
once it is open have someone pull the release and watch for movement,if it does clean the latch ,spray cable lube into the cable while moving.
then adjust the latch a little,not to much at a time or the hood will be loose.
Of course if there is no movement in the cable it means its broke and will have to be replaced

Can,t open gas tank latch


The cable hooks up to the latch under your left foot and goes back to the latch on the gas fill door. I believe you can take the trim loose from the trunk to see what the cable is doing. May have snapped or something on the latch near the fuel door broke. You should be able to manually open the door.
