SOURCE: I cant open the door

Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

Pull the dishwasher out, unplug it. Look on the back of the top panel and there are screws. Undo this then slide the top towards the front of the dishwasher and it will lift off. In the middle front top there is a small plastic arm with one nut, undo this then the door will open. Then ascertain if you need a new latch mechanism.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

SOURCE: I have an LSv66 Ariston

The dishwasher overflow detection may have triggered. This causes the drain pump to operate.

The overflow float is located at the base of the diswasher and maybe faulty. It is spring loaded float and should move down and up when pressed. If you cannot find this in your model, then water has leaked into the overflow cavity where the motors are located. This could also trigger the overflow protection circuit.

You have to replace the overflow float if it exists or empty the overflow water in the overflow cavity and dry it out. If leak is taking place then the gasket needs replacement.

Hope you are able to fix the problem with some of the suggestions I have made.

Please rate the solution if you find it helpful otherwise post a comment.

SOURCE: Dishwasher Model LSV66 - door

There is probably something broken with the latch mechanism as it is mostly made of plastic.

Safety first, ensure mains is off to dishwasher!

Your best chance of opening - Method one - first you need to understand how the latch works. In LSV66, the latch is right at the top, centre above the door handle and the ariston logo; you cant see any of these unless you have it opened - so try to imagine the mechanism as I describe; the door side is a tongue while on the dishwasher side it is a D-shape loop - at locked position, the tongue is inserted into the loop from below. So to pick it, use a coat hanger wire, bend it into L-shape. The problem is you need to slide this between the door and presumedly your worktop and slide it to the middle, learn where the latch is initially - the hard part is you need to slide the L-shape tip as close as possible the the door side, the tip should come in from sideway sp that you are trying to slide the tip arm of the L-shape underneath the d-loop and to unhook it is to flick the d-loop with upward turn and NOT downward since it loops over the tongue from top. Method two - assume you are confused about method one or simply cant slide the L-shape between the tongue and d-loop, the next best way is to pry the latch open, here you run a small risk of breaking the d-loop but you can easily buy a replacement spare - to pry open the door, use a sturdy tool if you dont have a suitable size crow bar - a robust screwdriver could do. You need to pry it close to the latch to get good fulcrum power, so approach middle above the logo between door and worktop - you are likely to scratch the top edge of the door but again this part is concealable when the door is shut so wont be too cosmetically bad.
Once opened, unscrew the top panel from inner door, you will find the latch mechanism which I assume something is broken - replace this by buying a spare - usually cost around £20.

Good luck.

SOURCE: My Ariston LS601 Dishwasher door

The door handle is broken from the inside of the panel. When this happens the door latch cannot release.
They are often tricky to open as each machine has a different latch design.
First disconnet machine from power source.
With the aid of a torch, look inside where the door handle is and also from the top of the door. Use a long thin flat screw driver and see if you can free the latch. Do not force it as you may break more parts within the panel.
If you manage to open the door, then you need to order the door handle kit and replace it. Again this is a tricky job, so if you are not confident call a dishwasher repairer.
I can help you more if you have questions.

I have an LSv66 Ariston dishwasher. When it is switched on, no matter what program, the knob just stays in the same position. It sounds as if the dump pump is running constantly.


The dishwasher overflow detection may have triggered. This causes the drain pump to operate.

The overflow float is located at the base of the diswasher and maybe faulty. It is spring loaded float and should move down and up when pressed. If you cannot find this in your model, then water has leaked into the overflow cavity where the motors are located. This could also trigger the overflow protection circuit.

You have to replace the overflow float if it exists or empty the overflow water in the overflow cavity and dry it out. If leak is taking place then the gasket needs replacement.

Hope you are able to fix the problem with some of the suggestions I have made.

Dishwasher door is jammed shut


Hi, I have the same dishwasher with the same problem. Basically i just have to pull it as hard as I can from both sides of the dishwasher door near the top, and it makes a loud "click" and comes open. Not sure what the problem is with it, but i've been doing that for a number of years.
