The door is attached by two spring loaded hinges lie on most oven doors. Pull it off. One of them is either damaged or bent. Try doing this, and if that seems to be the problem, you can find them at any local Sears or equivalent.

Lg p/no 3850dd3006a leaks at door


Every dishwasher door has a door seal. If the dishwasher is leaking water, it might be that the door seal is defective or worn out. Try closing the dishwasher door on a sheet of paper and see if the door seal is making good contact all the way around the door. If not, replace the door seal. If the door seal is good or has been replaced and there is still a leak check the door hinges. If the hinges are bent the door will not close properly and the hinges will need to be replaced

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 .

My dishwasher door wont shut


see this causes, and use the common sense. God bless you
When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these: Latch Springs Hinges Door seal Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs. Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough. Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

Dishwasher leaking


This sounds like a hinge problem to start with.

Test the seal by dragging a strip of paper through it with door closed. Probably that left hinge isn't holding door close enough which was probably the original cause. As seal dries out a bit then will leak.

At this point I would investigate the hinge possibility AND if possible a DIY fix. It may be loose mounting screws or take a little shim to hold the left corner tighter. I would not waste money for a service call.

You probably might need to release the door balance springs accessable under the toe kick area while working on the door. Possibly a hinge is bent.

You might do as they do in the auto industry when a door doesn't fit... basically put forces on it to bend it a bit. In your case it would be to distribute the load and support the door when horizontal about 6 inches out from the left hinge and then bend the end of the door down to bend the hinge mounts slightly..

Then check the seal clearance with the strip of paper as you do with a refigerator seal by cloosing on a strip of paper and dragging the strip to see if it is gripped.

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.

2)Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.

MAYTAG MDBO880AWB LEAKS FROM LEFT SIDE DOOR ONLY SOMETIMES AND


If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue

The door on my dishwasher will not close


There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps
