Jammed door release

The door latch doesn't release. With the door stuck in the closed position, how do I get the door open so I can examine the latch mechanism to find the problem? If I can remove the screws holding the dishwasher to the underside of the countertop, which will be tough, so I can pull the unit out, will there be a way to free the latch from the outside?

Yes if you can pull the washer out or lift the counter top there is a safty latch to prevent the washer from being opened when running if it is stuck on between cycles you should be able to release it with a small screwdriver

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.

Dishwasher runs even tho the door is open


The door interlock switch is jammed in the closed position.

There is a metal tab on the inside top of the DW frame that engages a lock just behind the handle on the inside of the unit. The lock tells the machine the door is closed and it is OK to run. If that jams the unit thinks the door is closed.

Open the door.

Look for the latch inside the door behind the handle.

Try to release it with a screwdriver.

If you need to you can remove the handle and repair from inside. It is usually a simple jam that requires you to gently pry the latch open.

REMEMBER TO TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST.

Hope this helps. Please rate this if it helps you.

Thanks,

Adrian

Door Open but latch in closed position - HELP!


You need to operate the door release handle at the same time as applying pressure to the latch you can see just inside the door (imagine which way it would move if the thing was working as designed), the tech has possibly simulated a door closed position for testing purposes.

The door is stuck. The latch will not release.


If you look carefully near/under the latch, you will probably see some screws that holds the latch handle on. As you remove those screws, it will probably be obvious how to get the door open.

If you post the manufacturer and model number back here, I can be more helpful. OK?

Opened door during cycle, latch now stuck in closed position, can't re-close


twist a paperclip around some pliers so you have a circle opening. then hook the paperclip around the latch and pull outward with the pliers. once the latch is facing outwards the door should close again

Soap door latch won't latch close


Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!
