Door doesn't shut properly to start dishwasher, have to push door to work but stops if you let go


The machine will not function if the door is not fully closed. The locking/latching mechanism for the door probably needs to be adjusted or replaced if faulty.
Also make sure there is nothing inside the dishwasher that is fouling the door (like a basket rack that is not fully in position) and is not allowing the door to fully shut. Pull the baskets out of the machine and check inside as well.

Oven door on lock


is the light oven on??? can you see the switch/button that the door would hit against to turn light off?? if so depress button so the lifht goes off, and start a clean cycle.This should make the lock mechanism engage fully. then cancel cycle and should fully disengage lock/latch (you need to depress light switch to trick unit into thinkin the door is closed)

Dishwasher door does not close


Does not close or does not lock? If not locking the latching mechanism probably got loose and needs the screws re-tightened. If its not closing fully something is blocking it, loose door gasket, tray out too far, item stuck in behind tray.shelf etc.

I have a frigidaire professional, I am unable to close the oven door. I have a effortless oven rack systems


Good Afternoon Nancy,

I understand that you are unable to close your Frigidaire range door, model# FPGF3081KF. I would check to make sure that there is nothing blocking the door from closing. Make sure that the racks are in fully, and that the hinges on the door are not hindering the door from closing. If everything is fine there, make sure that the door locking mechanism is not engaged. If the locking mechanism is engaged, what you will want to do is press and hold down the oven lockout button for 5-10 seconds, while the door is still open. Give it about 15-30 seconds and the lock should retract. If none of these suggestions help, I would contact either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician for further assistance.

-Best Regards-

Bosch dishwasher model SHY56A05UC/14 door wont latch. It will run but of course water comes out as it is not locked.


That sounds more like a gasket problem then a lock problem. Check the rubber seal on the door for damage. Even a small imperfection in the seal can cause the door to leak even though the lock is engaged.

Or is it that the door just won't close at all? If that's the case, check the locking mechanism to see if there's anything jammed in there. If so, remove it and that may fix the problem.

Deactivate childlock on fully integrated neff dishwasher


If door won't close and you don't have a child-lock, just push the door closed a lot harder than you normally would - NEFF manual says to do that, and it worked for me! I think it just forces it to engage and 'releases' the catch, as after that it closed with just normal pressure applied.

1992 Subaru Liberty wagon - cannot lock front passenger door.


Check the alignment with the door pin. Might be out of adjustment and will not let the door close all the way. That will cause the lock to not be operable. Good luck and have a great day.

Oven door will not close because the door lock is on and flashing, also the oven light won't go off. how do I fix the door lock flashing so I can close the oven door completly?


is not actuallly physically closing??? perhaps the lock/ latch has partially engaged prevetning door from closing, and with the door oopen it cannot do anything for safety reasons. can you see a door /light switch thtyou can depress by hand??? if so push and hold it in the light should go out, and at this point continue to hold in switch and try starting a self clean cycle ( dont worry it wont actually start cleaning right away)it then should activet the latch assy to fully engage and suppoedly lock door, still depressing the button then press thecancel button and the latch should return to the normal resting position and you can close the door
