Dishwasher door won't open all the way

Since just 2 days ago our dishwasher door only opens about 80%. I don't know how it comes apart or what to look for as to the problem. Any suggestions? The ID plate says this is a Kenmore Model 16798792. Thanks for any help.

You;ll need to remove the "kick" panel first. Use a 1/4" nut driver or socket. Then open the door and remove the 2 phillips screws that mount the dishwasher to the underneath of the cabinet. Then scoot the dishwasher out about 6 inches or so. You'll be able to use a flashlight and look closely at the door hinges and spring assy. to see what's hindering the full extension of the door. You MAY need to take the water valve off to get it to scoot out so you can work on it. Don't take the copper pipe off of the valve, just remove the screws that hold the valve onto the frame. And don't forget to KILL THE POWER TO THE DISHWASHER PRIOR TO SERVICING!

Have to slam dishwasher door to make it go electrolux 4000


Hello David Horn - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may also prevent the unit to start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

My Asko D1716 dishwasher works fine apart from the soap dispenser. It won't open to release the soap.


Most likely it's a corroded door catch or a bad solenoid. Hopefully it's not the main control board. You'll need a repair manual or technician. A work around would be to use detergent tablets in the compartment

Dishwasher just quit one day, controls or lights do not work, I have power so that is not the issue,


The first place I would suggest that you look, is to make sure your door is closing all the way. Make sure nothing has gotten stuck down at the bottom of the door and no silverware is stopping it from closing. You dishwasher has a door open/ajar switch that in a part of the door lock. If it is even just a little bit open, it will stop power to the timer and will not come on at all. Unless you are very comfortable with electricity, I would suggest you do not open the cabinet up as you are mixing two very dangerous items. Electricity and water.... you could receive a very bad shock or even death if you don't get it right the first time. If you are ok with the possibility, I can give you additional info.

AEG/Electrolux dishwaser error code iC0. When I swich on the dishwasher the sound appears - bzz and display shows iC0. Maybe someone knows what does that mean. Thanks


Hi, I Had a similar problem and fixed it by unplugging the cable that goes to the thingy that shows that time remaining on the floor. If your floor time display stopped working properly a while ago then maybe you have the same problem. The 4 wire ribbon cable that goes to the display was cut over time by a plastic cable clip in door when the door opens and closes... To fix take the door apart. The cut in the cable is right at the bottom of the door... follow the black 4 wire ribbon cable back to the control board. Unplug & wrap in a little installing tape and stick out of the way. I've not had a problem since... the time display does not work, but the dishwasher does... I think the tipping forward tips suggested by others may have worked for a few days in my case by wetting the cut cable and restoring enough of a connection to make the machine work for a few days...
