The dishwasher door snaps open, stopping cycle. The friction catch often requires multiple presses to hold closed sufficient to allow the cycle to begin. I would like to know what adjustments are required...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I suspect based on your description...it is the door strike that is likely fatigued as is common with these machines, thus allowing the door to "pop" open. The latch doesn't hold it closed, it just activates the switches, the strike is designed to hold it closed.


It is part # 8574157 and will look like the image here...

macmarkus_678.jpg

You do not need to remove the control panel to access the strike for the door latch assembly. It is done simply by pulling up (may need a flat screwdriver or the like) on the latch and forward. The new one also simply clips in place.

**make sure to turn off the breaker/power before servicing the unit...safety first**

Let me know if you need any further assistance and I will try to help in any manner I can. Good luck,

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

How to fix the interior lights? They stay on after the doors are closed. They also stay on after the car is started. After awhile they will go off but the problem comes back as soon as I get back into the...


  • It can very possibly be the door ajar switch. But it may not need to be replaced. Them switches get dirt and crud in them as well as rust. You can spray some WD-40 on the switch and open and close the door a few times. and see if this loosens it up some.
  • If you need to replace it then this is an easy task. The switch is just a few inches below the door latch on the inside of the door frame.
  1. Remove the neg battery terminal.
  2. Remove the screw from inside the armrest.
  3. Remove the screw under the door handle.
  4. Take a torx wrench and remove the three bolts (on the side of the door) holding that hold the door latch in place.
  5. Pull the latch out and you will see the door ajar switch.
  6. Unscrew the door ajar switch and screw a new on in it's place.
  7. Now reverse to finish the job.

Code F 11


F11 is a serial communications error that is associated with either the door latch, central control unit (main computer) or associated wiring. Since you can hear a "click", and the washer works intermittently I would suspect you have a bad door latch assembly. Just to be sure you will need to check all your wiring connections going to the central control unit and door latch. To access follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the three 7mm screws holding the top panel on. They are located along the top edge in the back of the washer. Once the screws are removed the top panel will slide back then lift up.
3. The Central Control Unit (CCU) is located in the central rear of the washer. You can't miss it. Make sure all the connections are plugged in snugly. The door latch connections are located behind the front panel on the right hand side. Check ONE connection at a time.

After checking wiring harness, run systems diagnostics test by performing the following:

Select DRAIN/SPIN, NO/SPIN, followed by pushing any button under OPTIONS 4 times. If entered correctly the display will read "C00" and you should hear the door latch "click". The diagnostics will run through a series of tests to include FILL, AGITATE, DRAIN and SPIN functions. Since the door latch is the first step of the diagnostic sequence, the tests will not progress if the door latch fails. You can push PAUSE/CANCEL any time to end diagnostics. Run this test several times. If anything fails you will get an "F" code in the display window. If the tests all pass, the unit will shut off, followed by an audible "beep" and the CLEAN light indicator will be lit. If you get successful results, then you know you probably had a loose wire somewhere. If the test fails, I would attempt to replace the door latch before the CCU. The latch costs considerably less. The CCU can cost as much as $220 depending on where you get it.

If you decide to replace the door latch follow these steps:

1. Make sure washer is unplugged.
2. Locate the wire hoop retaining ring that holds the rubber door boot on. It will be located behind the front edge of the rubber where it meets the door frame.
3. Locate the tension spring at the 6 o'clock position and stretch the spring apart to release the hoop. Pull the hoop from the bottom first and remove from the door boot.
4. Pull door boot from door opening and fold back inside wash tub so you can access behind the front panel of the washer.
5. Remove the three torx screws that hold the door latch on.
6. The door latch is seated in a plastic retainer bracket. Reach in behind front panel and carefully remove the door latch from this bracket so you can access the wire connectors.
7. Remove wire connectors.
8. Re-install wire connectors and latch in reverse order of how it was removed.
9. Re-install door boot, ensuring it seated properly all the way around the door frame opening.
10. Re-insert wire retaining hoop in the groove behind the front lip of the rubber door boot starting at the 12 o'clock position and working your way around to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (You may need a second set of hands for this part). While holding downward tension on the hoop to keep it seated, stretch the spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop back into place at the bottom of the door opening.

Washer will not start


"Fdl" is definitely a door latch error. This will cause the washer not to start. You will need to replace the latch to keep from getting errors and intermittent problems. It will only get worse until it fails altogether. To replace, just follow these steps: 1. Unplug the washer. 2. Feel around the rubber door boot along the front edge. At the bottom, behind the rubber you will find a tension spring. Pull the tension spring out and remove the wire retaining hoop. 3. Remove the door boot from around the door opening and push inside the washer so you can access the door latch behind the front panel. 4. Remove the three screws on the front of the washer that hold the latch in place. 5. Carefully remove the wire connecting plugs to the door latch and remove latch assembly from plastic retainer holding it in place. 6. Replace the door latch in the reverse order of the steps given. 7. Reinstall rubber door boot around the door opening making sure you seat the rubber all the way around the groove. 8. Now comes the hard part - putting the retaining spring back in place. Position the tension spring at the six o'clock position and start inserting the hoop from the top first, working your way around to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. The assistance of another person would be great right about now. Hold the hoop in place at the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, making sure you keep enough tension on the hoop to keep it seated in the groove. 9. Stretch the tension spring in order to snap the remainder of the hoop back into place. I know this may seem like a lot, but it is a fairly simple repair. I hope this helps you.
