Door won't stay open

I have a simple problem (I think!).  The door of my dishwasher won't stay open.  It just swings back into the closed position, so I have to stand on the door to empty the dishwasher or hold the door down with one hand while I empty the dishwasher.  Any ideas/solutions?
Thanks, Shirin

SOURCE: CD player cover/door won't stay closed

The intermittent version of this seems to be related to the cable that goes to the subwoofer portion. Have seen this behavior when the cable got loose. Unfortunately, I believe that this behavior may get worse in the long run and cause CDs to not play at all.

SOURCE: Can't close Bosch Dishwasher door

My Bosch wasnt balck but had a white bit that stuck up on the door that stopped it closing - to fix and it might work here use two screwdrivers to pull on both sides from behind as such - recreates the latch on opening!

SOURCE: Kitchenaid dishwasher door does not stay up in the open position.

On each side of the dishwasher, near the ground, is a nylon cord and pulley apparatus that keeps the door from flopping down when opened. It probably needs some adjustment of the tension on the cord.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher SHX46A latch stuck in down possition.

look at the latch via the hole in the door where it closes to the tank? is the latch faced away from the tank? if so, then grab a paper clip and fold it so you can hook it around the latch then just pull outward towards the tank. you might need to hold that paper clip with some pliers. if it happens more than once then you will need to replace that door lock.

How do I remove oven door


open the oven door all the way and look down at the hinges. there is a little locking clip that you swing into position that locks the hinge from closing. it might be stiff and need some cleaning depending on how old and dirty your oven is. Also you might have to push down on the oven door to make the hinge open fully to get the locking tabs into place. making shore that the locking clips stay in place and hold open the hinge as you lift the oven door slowly towards its closing position and you will see the whole hinge lift up from inside the oven cabinet and the door will just lift out. be careful not to catch your fingers. make sure the looking tabs stay in place during removal as the hinge is very hard to get back into this position again. re fitting is the reversal making sure that you have pushed the base of the door all the way back into the cabinet and push down on the as to open it to release the tabs.

The refrigerator right side door swings all the way around when you open it (180 degrees). Shouldn't it stop half way? How can this be corrected?


Your frig should be properly leveled left to right and front to back when it was installed. If it is done correctly, when you open the door it should stop where-ever you stop it and it should stay there until you close it. If it swings either closed or open when you let go of the handle, it's not level. The door stop is there to keep the door from opening too far.

My KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.


I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

Rear passenger door won't stay closed


Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.

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

Cant get back door to stay closed . The lock is stuck in locked position I think and the door is open. When I go to close it, it is'nt staying closed. Had to duck tape it to stay closed. LOL! I keep...


It sounds to me ( correct me if I'm wrong ) like the door latch on the side vertical edge of the door is in the LOCKED POSITION. In order to unlock it perform the following. First electrically with the LOCK button UNLOCK the locks. Now with one hand hold the OUTSIDE DOOR HANDLE IN THE OPEN POSITION, while at the same time FLIPPING OPEN THE LATCH. All Done . Now you can close the door. Hope this helps

The Rinsing aid door keeps opening in my Bosch dishwaser


I believe paddy55 is correct about the rack position affecting the rinse agent door. When the top rack is moved to the higher position, the rack hits the latch on the rinse agent door, causing it to pop open.

Move the rack back to the lower position and see if the door stays closed.
