Door on dishwasher, model KUDSO1FKSS1, came crashing down. I removed the front under panel and discovered 2 nylon cables hanging down and 1 piece of broken plastic. Does anyone have a diagram of how these need to be installed? and, should springs be replaced at this time as well?

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

While I don`t have diagram or illustration I can give some insight because this is actually very common.

It is a fairly minor procedure to replace it/them. Slide the entire unit out from the cabinet a couple or three inches and you`ll see the plastic roller assembly and rope ( except yours is likey broke...at least one by the sounds of your description ) attached to the side.

**You`ll need to insure your connections will allow you to pull the unit out however, otherwise they - water, power, drain hose - must be disconnected to prevent any damage.**

If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.

The parts ( # 1059756 @ repairclinic ) come in a kit as I alluded to and will look like what I attached below...

Door on dishwasher, model KUDSO1FKSS1, - 0fda4f0.jpg


These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" or "apwagner.com" to name a few.

They range in price for around $20, or you can just purchase the rope/link seperately for about $4 part # 1159210 @ repairclinic.

I recommend replacing the entire kit and checking the spring itself, if it looks ok and not stretched or broke it is likely ok...they are seperate from the kit ( # 830967 door spring @ repairclinic as well )

Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.

Please take a moment and rate the solution provided here or a testimonial if you feel warranted.

Let me know if you require further assistance and good luck.

How-to I replace facing on older whirlpool dishwasher


  • 1. Place your hands at each end of the retainer trim piece that runs along the bottom of the dishwasher door panel. The piece may be metal, black plastic or another color, depending on your dishwasher model. Lift up on the retainer section and pull it toward you to remove it. Set the retainer aside.
  • 2. Press the palms of both hands on the old facing and slide it down until the top is free. The facing flexes easily to allow you to slip it out from under the trim along each side.
  • 3. Hold the replacement door panel, or reverse the old one, so that the desired color is facing you. Turn the panel, if needed, so the dimensions line up with the dishwasher door.
  • 4. Slip the side of the facing into the left side of the frame on the dishwasher door.
  • 5. Secure the other side of the facing into the right side of the dishwasher frame by bowing the panel gently and sliding it into the frame.
  • 6. Slide the new facing up and into place so you can reposition the retainer.
  • 7.Hold the new color panel and the spacer behind it up over the lower edge of the frame about 1/4 inch.
    8. Snap the retainer into place. Push down on the horizontal piece gently to ensure it is securely connected.
  • 9. Adjust the new panel down a bit with the palms of your hands to cover the 1/4-inch space.

Water leaking at the bottom of the door


Tightening the fittings
1 Remove the service panel that runs along the front of the dishwasher just below the door. If it is screwed in place, remove the screws with a screwdriver. If the panel hangs on hooks, pull the panel out and swing it up to remove it from the hooks.
2 Check the end of the drain hose that connects to the dishwasher. If it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
3 Check the drain hose connection to the kitchen sink drain. Again, if it's leaking, tighten the clamp with a screwdriver.
4 Check for leaks around the water-inlet valve. If necessary, use an adjustable wrench to tighten the compression fitting that connects the water-supply line to the valve. If the fill hose is leaking, replace the spring clamp that is on the hose with a worm-drive hose clamp. It produces more clamping pressure. Use adjustable pliers to compress the spring clamp so you can pull the clamp and hose off the valve. Remove the spring clamp from the hose. Buy a worm-drive clamp at your hardware store, then install it and tighten it with a screwdriver.

Leveling the machine
1 Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
2 Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
3 Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
4 Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
5 Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.
6 Reattach the dishwasher to the countertop and reinstall the front access panel.

Fixing a leaking door
1 Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
2 If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
3 Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
4 Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
5 Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

Interior door handle right side


first you need to order a new handle and trim ring, 2 separate pieces. beige or grey are your only choices. www.tnaautoparts.com cheapest and only one i found that caries beige. i did both front doors for 25 dollars total including shipping. Remove door panel, 2 screws under round plastic caps that pry out and off, 2 screws at bottom, 2 lg screws in middle handle, 1 plastic retainer in side that prys out, 1 screw under square cap in the center of the trim ring. remove black plastic triangle shaped piece near the mirror, prys off easy. grab door panel and pull out then lift up. leave wires attached and let panel hang loose. remove screw from old door handle. remove linkage from handle and from lock. connect linkages to new handle and lock (look carefully at the old one before you remove the linkages) , install the last screw you removed to hold lock in place while you check to if everything works. when i finished mine neither door would open from the inside. i had to take pliers and slightly bend the linkage at the elbo's to shorten the travel distance. check this before you put everything back together by just putting the door panel back in place down fist then in, window down, close door, reach in and open door, if it doesn't open bend linkage and try again. when you are sure everything is ok install all screws except the one that was under the square plastic cap in the trim ring. to install trim ring look for notch on back side toward front of ring, push ring in notch end fist, back end slightly out, when the front end is in and seated push the back end straight in. install screw and push cap in. this job is not as hard as it sounds and will make sense when have the panel off and can see.

GET 0E CODE SHOWING ON MY LG DISHWASHER


The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor.
else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD

if that doesnt help you.....

the problem IS NOT necessarily a blocked drain hose or the drain pump it could be the thermostat micro switch!!! the thermostat is located at the rear of the right bottom side of the dishwasher(held by oval nylon plastic housing). Turn the machine off. remove the right side panel.(remove top {2screws in lid at back}, remove right panel screws {2 behind door, 3 bottom back panel, 2 behind panel below door {pull panel out from top [no screws pushes in & out of place]}. Locate oval nylon/plastic shape located as above - micro-switch is in the middle (3 wire connectors in 1 block) thermostat is 2 connectors ( 1 each side of micro-switch). use screwdriver to push thermostat back into the nylon housing on both sides (it has worked its way out a bit over time and stops the micro-switch working). Reassemble and dishwasher starts to work again!!!!

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.

How do i remove front panel on incognito dishwasher


If you have SCVi you have a steel panel. You'll find 4 Holes, 2 on each side covered by plastic caps. They have "TORX 15" screws inside. The screws control locking cams that are tightly pinching 4 hooks from the fascia panel. It's very similar to hanging up a coat hanger. Turn each screw 5-7 times counter-clockwise (lefty loosy). The locking cam will traverse outward releasing the pinch. The fascia panel will now lift out. The cam is now loose. While servicing care must be taken to avoid moving the cams inside the door.
Re-assemble in reverse order. Make sure the panel drops into place before locking the screws. The panel will first go towards the rear of the dishwasher then drop down about 1/4". If the panel does not drop, one or more of the cams is in the way. Remove the panel and reset the cam by looking into each slot with a flashlight and pushing the cams towards the outer edge of the door based on which side it's on. Lock the cam screws clockwise once the panel is hanging squarely on the door and re-seat the plastic covers.
