My GE dishwasher door is stuck closed


Have you tried wiggling it side to side? The diswasher may not be secured properly and will vibrate while running. If the counter opening is relatively small it can be hard to open the door if the dishwasher is off center.

When I hit the start button on my GE dishes washer the light in the front is blinking and it will not go on


This sometimes happens when there is a problem with the door latch system or switch. Your door may be closed but the control still thinks it is open. Check the door latch and switch alignment. GE had a problem with the doors dropping slightly about a year ago. the latch looks like a arrow head on top of the door center that pushes into the switch that is mounted on the dishwasher body. If the arrow head is slightly lower than the part on the body you will get the exact problem you are having. GE has hinge shims that they install to raise the door up slightly to fix the problem. Not sure your dishwasher is one of these without a model number.

The start light is flashing on my GE dishwasher?


What's the model number? How old is this dishwasher? The new GE dishwashers (less than 3 years old) have a weakness in the door switch/latch assembly, and that would cause the light to flash - it wants you to press Start and close the door, but it's not recognizing that the door is closed.

Older model (unknown) Whirlpool Dishwasher. Door latch failure. Dishes trapped inside.


You may have to break the little handle off to open it and order a new door latch mechanism. Just be careful. This is a lip latch so it wont be hard if you can get to where the latch connects. Use the internet and model to order new one.

The latch is loose and does not catch anything. How do i repair it?


Hello,

Dishwashers are supposed to make life easier. But when they are not working properly, they can make life aggravating. Buying a new dishwasher or hiring a repair person can cost hundreds of dollars. With the proper know-how, anyone can fix most dishwasher problems and save money. One of the most common problems is a malfunctioning door latch.

Instructions material needed.

  • Hammer,Rag,WD40 or other lubricating spray
    Cleaning the Latch
  1. Inspect the latch for visible debris that may be caught in the components. This is a common reason a door is hard to open or close.
  2. Use a rag to clean debris from the latch components.
  3. Lubricate the latch components with WD40 or other lubricating spray.
  4. Test the door to see if it is working properly.
Good luck.

I have to replace the handle / latch assembly on a GE Monogram Dishwasher Model #ZBD6600G03SS. For the love of me I can't see how to do it. Do I have to get at it from inside, outside, both sides...


Hi

If the dishwasher door will not latch on your GE Monogram dishwasher and it is a new appliance, check that the door is not hitting screws or cabinets underneath the counter. For a new dishwasher, you might also need to push in the top of the control panel as you latch the door. The new gaskets might not have had time to seat properly. It may be necessary to run up to 10 dishwasher cycles for the heat from the washer to seat the gasket, which becomes more flexible after it is used a few times. For older Monogram dishwashers, check the loading rack to be sure no dishes are protruding beyond the back or front of the racks and that no dishes have fallen through to the lower rack. If dishes are dangling down into the lower rack, they could stop the lower rack from completely rolling into the dishwasher and could also stop the spray arm from rotating. Check that no silverware is obstructing the door.

GE Dishwasher GSD2000 door latch/sensor malfunctioning


The latch could need a simple adjustment or may require replacing.

Is the catch (the part that sticks out of the dishwasher, not the door part) loose?

Maybe try to loosen it (dont unscrew it completely) and re-adjust it to suit.

Hope this helps!?

Dishwasher door will not open.tried running it another cycle and still nothing.It is a GE profile with the latch that you just push in. The latch/handle seems stiff.


The plastic latch release inside the door handle is broken. Most likely one of the pins holding it in place has broken.

First go to your local dishwasher supplier and look at a similar brand (GE Profile in my case) and see how the mechanism works. Next, get a thin pair of siccors, pull the dishwasher handle down and slid the siccors into the opening above the handel and push the tab holding the door closed up so it will release.

Once the door is open, remove the inside of the door to get to the latch. Remove the plastic latch release and order a new one.
