Hello, Welcome to Fixya.

Based on your description what you`ve likey experienced is a broken door closer/link kit.

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 ) 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...

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 check the spring itself...that is 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.

Why will the door not stay closed ?


it could be the latch frame and casing but if no one has recently put a crowbar in to door lock to force your door open - i would say its an eletrical fault check the sensor on the door frame and on the door and make sure they line up while the door is closed and if thats the case i would say you have a fault with the hall sensor or ghosts haha just kidding

Dacor 30' epicure dishwasher door won't open. i have hit thecure button for 3 seconds and nothi


Hi.

Hold down the clear button for longer, about ten seconds.

Try tripping the circuit breaker, or disconnecting power cord for about five minutes.

If the appliance is still not opening, then the tub is probably filled with water, or the door lock solenoid is broken.

At that point you many need to call the service number listed on the owners manual to get a repairman.

The tub is emptied accessing the drain hose underneath the dishwasher and disconnecting it from pump.

Kitchenaid dishwasher door does not stay up in the open position.


On each side of the dishwasher, near the ground, is a nylon cord and pulley apparatus that keeps the door from flopping down when opened. It probably needs some adjustment of the tension on the cord.

Miele G660 premier dishwasher


There is a solenoid that opens the door to the dispenser. You can check it with a volt/ohm meter. Sometimes large dishes can block the door keeping it from opening. I personally know on some Whirlpool washers (because it was mine) that if the bottom drawer is put in backwards, it wont let the door open. When I opened the main door, then the dispenser would flop open. You need a meter to check this part if its not the other things. Without it, you are just guessing.
