Bosch SMU70 Dishwasher latch

The latch on the dishwasher will not clasp the hook. I had fooled around with it a few days ago and it seemed to "fix itself", but now I can't get the hook to move.

How do I get rear gate to close if the latch clasp is rotated out of correct position?

You probably need to pull the manual release and physically move the latch back into its unmatched position. The latch hook will rotate open so that it can receive the fixed bar on the body.

Had repairman fix my disherwasher few days ago not draining. Now it's noisy while washing which was quiet before

Look around the bottom of the tub for foreign material, like a knife, spoon, nut or bolt.

I think if the repairman had "done it", it would have acted up immediately.

Also, look for anything sticking below the basket that might be interferring with the washer arm that spins around, too.

Dishwasher will not latch

more than likely the safety clasp inside of the door panel is broken. On the dishwasher at the top where the latch fits there should be a small metal shaft extruding from the dishwasher side. This shaft, when the door is closed, pushes a bar inside the door to release the latch for closing. If this shaft is protruding from the dishwasher side and insert into the door slot then the latch mechanism in the doior itself needs replacing. If the saft is missing then it needs replacing. Get the model and serial #'s off the unit and take them to an appliance parts house for the proper part replacement.

Hope this helped you

Door will not close the clasp will not open

With the door open and the door unlocked, put a screw driver in the latch on the door. Pull it up and depress the door open handle at the same time. the door latch will return to the open position. Release the door handle button and close the door.

If that is unclear, imagine the llatch to look like a hook that grabs the round metal post mounted on the car door post. the hook is down as if it thinks it is closed so it blocks itself. By getting that 'latch hook to go back up it will allow you to close the door thus resting itself to operate normally again.

Hope that helps.

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

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.
