    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.

Why won't my kenmore ultra wash dishwasher drain?


It could be an obstruction in the drain hose (most common), or in the air-break (if you have one), or at the check valve, or something may be blocking or stopping the drain pump impeller. Try this: Close the door and press Cancel. (Or if your dishwasher has the controls that are hidden under your counter ledge when you close the door, then press Cancel first and then close the door. Do you hear anything? Is the drain pump trying to run? If so, then start at your garbage disposal and work backwards. If you got a new garbage disposal installed, make sure that you (or the installer) remembered to knock out the hard-plastic plug at the end of the dishwasher connector port. Also make sure you don't have a clog right there. If that's okay, then check the drain hose (or air-break, if you have one) for clogs. If that's okay, then you will probably want to call a professional because the next steps involve removing and dismantling the drain pump.

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.

GE dishwasher - my daughter sat on the door and it opens too far now. Which part needs replacing?


Here's a try.
You need to pull the unit out from the hole it's in so you can examine it.
Most installations have only two screws holding the two tabs to the counter at the top front.
Open the dishwasher door, and look at the very top and see if there are two screws holding the dishwasher to the countertop. If so, remove them.
The dishwasher should now pull out of the hole it is in, BUT, pull it only about halfway out, because there are several connections you do not want to break.
There is a wire hookup, a drain hose hookup , and a feedwater line hookup.
I'm hoping you can do this without disconnection all that.
Try opening and closing the door and see if you can gently bend the metal arms to make it better, or identify what is needing replacement.
Get on your computer or someone else's and type in Sears Parts.
Sears offers free schematics online that will show you pictures you can blow up to any size for any machine.
You will need to take the make and model from the plate on the door or the body of your dishwasher to get the right schematic.
If you need to order parts, many places on line sell them.
Good luck with your efforts.

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.

The door just flys open and slams down with no support. Won't stay closed unless pushed in all the way.


I'm no sure why the door is flying open but it the door is falling without any tension, it sounds like 1 or both of the cheezy nylon lines that hold the door springs or their plastic accessories have bit the dust. Look at page 24 of your installation instructions if you have them. Shows what they look like. If you pull the dishwasher out, you will see them in the front on the lower left and right. Our dishwasher is 7 years old and they have broken twice now.

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).
