I have a Maytag MFW2055YEM Refrigerator. It is a French Door type. The left refrigerator door has a "C" shaped plastic washer that fits under the bottom door hinge. This washer keeps popping out after...


Hi,
Is there an easy way to disassemble the hinge and put a solid washer? You can make it quickly by cutting it out of suitable useless plastics. If the door is heavy, please use something to fix it open. Another way is to stick the "C" shaped washer very carefully, so that you do not block the hinge, f. ex. with silicone or other not very aggresive glue. Maybe even turning it on 180 degrees after inserting will be enough.

Miele G2020 Advanta Dishwasher Leak Help


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Water Inlet Valve

If the dishwasher is leaking water the water inlet valve might be defective. If the water inlet valve sticks open, it will allow water to fill the dishwasher continuously. Some customers report that they see clean water filling the bottom of the dishwasher after it's been sitting all night or for a couple of days. If this happens, turn off the water that is supplying the dishwasher. This is normally a valve under the kitchen sink. Then, replace the water inlet valve, it cannot be repaired. The water valve needs at least 20 lbs pressure to shut off properly. If your water pressure is to low replacing the valve may not solve the problem.

Center Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water, the center wash arm assembly might be cracked or split. This can allow a jet of water to spray toward the door seal, causing a leak. If a crack or split in the center wash arm assembly is found, replace it. There isn't any glue that will hold the part together inside the dishwasher.





Lower Wash Arm Assembly

If the dishwasher is leaking water the lower wash arm assembly might be defective. If the lower wash arm has a crack or split on the end, it can force water to spray directly toward the lower part of the dishwasher door. Then, the water can be forced under the door and onto the floor. Check the lower wash arm for any cracks or splits and replace it if necessary. Also make sure the screws are tight in the wash arm support. If the screws are loose, water can spray out the side of the pump and cause a leak.





Upper Wash Arm Assembly

If the upper wash arm assembly is broken or cracked it can cause water to spray very forcefully toward the seams of the door, causing a leak.





Door Seal

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 dollar bill 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.

Left door of the refer isn't closing properly, must manually feed it thru the little channel at the top for it to fold in and close


Hi,

check the door hinges a in place:
The door latch and lower hinge pin should hold your refrigerator door in place..
Uncover the door by removing the screws.Take the door off and pack bottom hinge with washers and make sure hinge brackets on cabinet are tight.
Check the seal is clean and pliable:
If seal is gapping, one solution is to warm with a hairdryer and pull outwards gently.
Check the refrigerator is properly leveled:
Adjust the middle hinge to straighten the lower portion of the door. Use a level to ensure the door is flush.

After fitting the door back again,check to see if the seal is touching on all sides when the door is closed. If not, you will need a new seal.Refrigerator is properly leveled.and hinges should be properly placed.

post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Do the door hinges ever wear out


I did my own search for the same problem and saw Dougs question and lack of a solution. I have the same sagging door problem and was looking for a fix.
First, when I removed the weight of the items from inside the door, the door closes properly. This means that the door is not very sturdy and cannot hold the weight of items placed on door shelving. There are NO adjustment mechanisms on the door hinges either. Bad on Amana. The GOOD NEWS is that I fixed the problem.
Take out all items from the door shelves. I removed the top hinge with the door closed to keep it from falling. I took the door off and placed it on the floor. The lower hinge has a plastic pivot over a steel pin - remove that for a moment. Place steel washers over the steel pin - about .080" or so thickness. Replace the plastic pivot. Replace the door. Add the normal weight of items back on the door shelves. The door closes perfectly. At least until the door sags again and I'll need to add another shim.

How do I get the top cover off the freezer door and switch it to open the opposite way?


Duct tape the door closed.

Keep all washers and plastic grommets. make screw holes in opposite side accessible IE remove plastic grommets.

Remove the lower hinge remove the upper hinge.Install lower hinge just as it came off and then do the upper hinge. tighten down the hinges then see if the door needs adjusting by opening it and closing it and watching for the door gasket to keep folded properly.

Insert the plastic grommet covers in the original holes and you should be done.

Door must be slammed hard to close.


Do you suspect that the reason the door won't close easily is because of bent door/hinges or some other reason? If it is because of bent hinges a trick is to take an 11/32" deep well socket (1/4" drive) and place it in the lower corner of the door and slowly close. Repeat on other side. This will bend the hinges back to a position where the door will latch easily. If you suspect a different cause, please let me provide me more information and I will try to help you. Hope this helps some and best wishes.
