    Does anybody know how to take the side panels off a Whirlpool/Ikea DWF412 integrated dishwasher. The door has broken and now doesn't shut so need to take off the side panel to access the door brakes/hinge brake band. Any help would be very much appreciated.

My dishwasher model DU3003XL0 has a similar problem. It happened yesterday. I had opened the door all the way, and then I heard a loud clunk sound. I suspect it is the spring mechanism in the door, and am ordering new springs, and hope to fix it myself.
Wish me luck.

Passenger door has dropped and has to be lifted to close can any one give any guidance


It sounds like the hinge bolt came loose. If it comes loose, the door can sway up and down. I would check that, and if this is the case, get somebody to help you by lifting the door up on the end of it while you tighten the bolt. You have to get it just right, it may take a few times.

Broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Hello,

Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS30IXBL door locked open, will not close


There should be a type of hook inside the hole where the door latches to the machine. Hold the handle up and rotate the hook latch so the open side is pointing towards the machine. The click you heard was the latch that holds the door closed moving to the closed position when the door was open, and it needs to be in the release position.

Garage wont close with remote but will open


I have found that not closing is because the door sensors are either blocked from viewing each other, or one of them is turned so it does not "see" the other, If they look like they are aimed right, check that the wiring for them goes to the door closer without breaks. Probably you can try hot-wiring the connectors at the door closer to see if it solves the problem, and then figure out where the disconnect is.

HI,MY DISHWASHER DOOR HAS BECOME VERY STIFF TO OPEN ALTHOUGH IT CLOSES WITH NO PROBLEM. when I looked underneath the door grip handle, there's a little white thin skittle shaped pin .,......when I push...


Hello

Open the dishwasher door and inspect the latch mechanism for obstructions or immovability.

Clean out the door latch with a stiff bristled brush, and apply lubricant. Open and close the door to see if it now latches shut.

Check the door latch and strike plate alignment. Close the dishwasher door slowly and observe the door latch meeting the strike plate. Determine whether the latch is striking the plate correctly. If not, use pliers to gently bend the latch to meet the strike plate.

Gently hammer the latch to better align with the strike plate. Hammer carefully so as not to break the latch or dislodge it from its attached point. Open and close the door to see if it now latches.

Realign the strike plate. Loosen the strike plate with a screwdriver and slightly move its positioning to better align with the door latch. Tighten the strike plate and open and close the door to see the results.

Whirlpool dishwasher


If the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive).

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).
