My soap dispenser will not open during the wash cycle


Hi,
There is a quick test to verify there is a problem, this test will take about 2 mins. Open the door, close the dispenser (latched), on the control panel itself, push in this order hi temp wash (HTW) than sani *3 times in that order*. So that means HTW-Sani, HTW-Sani, HTW-Sani. What this will do is run a control service mode, all the LED's will light up, close the door and wait until it stops, within about 45 seconds you should hear the dispenser open. If it opens it is functioning normally, if not, it should be replaced.
I hope this helps

I have a D3251 and the door won't close/latch....how do I solve this problem? Thank you


I just had this problem and it seemed to be fairly easy to fix. Some times when you open and close the door interrupting washing cycles, the latch will think it is already latched. Even though it will still close with pressure, it seems like it will pop back out on you. Here's the fix. If you open the door, you will see a white plastic accepting latch that can be flipped back into the fully open direction using a screwdriver. That seemed to do the trick.

Cannot open the door of the dishwasher.


Hi,
  • 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.

  • 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.

Latch is not working properly


It's possible the machine is slightly twisted.
Try re-levelling it to start.
You can usually tell when the door is not quite closed if it looks out-of-centre.

The next thing to check is lubrication of the catch. Try some WD-40 in the latch mechanism.

If still no better, then the latch may need adjusting by removing the front panel (unplug machine before doing this).
Grease the moving parts and adjust catch for easy closing.

My matsui dishwasher, seems to have broken and will not open. Is there anyway to get door open


Hi,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.
Also 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.

When i close the door i hear it close but i have to put something up against it to keep it washing if i take it away it stop washing


Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

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

Kitchenaide dishwasher latch will not stay closed. It pops open during washing cycle and the machine stops and does not complete the cycle


The dishwasher was not properly leveled on installation. I used a carpenter's level
and trued up the problem. The door now stays closed.

However, the latch design is faulty in that it does not ever feel securely latched and that is true of all the Kitchenaides that I tried in the showrooms.
