    Removed the exterior gasket and noticed steam percolating between the door and the cabinet-brace. The percolating steam would collect and trickle down the sides of the door until a puddle would collect under the door. I squeezed the door by using a clamping-device that pushed the door closer to the cabinet-brace. the perclating water stopped and the puddles are gone. Clearly using a larger internal gasket and a tighter door latch would ensure no more leaking. Can the door latch be adjusted to close the door tighter? If not is the only solution a larger internal gasket? Thanks in advance

SOURCE: Loose door handle

Here is the link to the installation manual; pages 14 and 9 of the manual (16 and 11 of the pdf) describe how to remove the toe panel, and the door facia panel. You should then be able to access where the handle is attached. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: loose door handle on ge profile dishwasher

Take the inside panel off.  The 2 screws near the latch only need to be loosened.  Once the handle is off, you will find an allen bolt inside the shaft of the handle support.  Tighten and you are done.

Loose handle

Open the door and loosen the self threading screws around the sides of the inner door panel. Once this has been achieved lift the inner panel up so that you can access the door handle screws. Tighten these fasteners and reassemble the door panel.

I have a kitchenaid electric range and the oven door handle is loose. Can I remove the door and open it and tighten the handle?

My son came and pulled the door straight out not up and we were able to take it off and take it apart and tighten the handle and clean the inner glass. It now looks and works like new.
Thank you

Door Handle Loose and tightening with allen wrench does NOT work ...

Just did this on mine today. Use an allen wrench to back off both the upper and lower set screws (Note: you do not need to back them all the way out). The handle will then easily pull away from the door. With a 1/4" socket, tighten the screws holding the upper and lower lugs on the door. Place the handle back on and tighten the upper and lower set screws.
