Question about Indesit 24 in. D61 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Door panel The panel on the door has rusted after 3 years. I need to find a replacement panel. Where can I buy/order one. I live in Gansbaai along the coast about 180km from Cape Town. The closest town is Hermanus. I am a good handyman and am able to fit the panel myself. This is urgent as my wife can not use her hands to wash dishes.

You will either need to have one made locally to match, or order one from the maker. try on line. you will need the model number and serial number to make certain that you get the right part.
and in the meantime, you might need to do the dishes for your wife, if you can.
good luck

Rain coming the passanger side floor, no apparent holes or cracks, and windscreen not leaking!

You have provided no year, make, or model of car but in many cases the leak is caused by; 1) a plug that is under the floor mat has come out or pushed through, or 2) the weather seal on the door, in the area of the hinge end, has gotten loose or has aged and has cracks in it, or 3) the bottom seal on the door has cracked or come loose. I have seen, very infrequently, where the water is coming in under the door plate [this is the metal plate that has screws in it to hold down the carpet] usually when this happens the rocker panel has rusted. Check these items, and if the seals are just loose, go to Lowes and buy a tube of "Goo" glue ( not a joke) and us it to reinstall the seal(s). If any of the seals are weathered and cracked they must be replaced. And if the rocker panel in rusted, its a matter of money how you fix that. Hope this helps.

Zanussi SS fridge freezer not yet 2 years old, first freezer door started to rust on lower front edges and slightly on front panel - replaced no problem by local shop. That door is now rusting in same...

NO fun... Looks like you will need a new door again soon ~ no matter what.

I would buy a new door, BUT BEFORE installation... I would apply many coats of a decent clear lacquer paint first... apply on all of the bottom of the door and cover at least 10 inches up.

Also coat the bottom and inside of the door at least 6" up... the door sides too...

Be sure to allow each layer to dry thoroughly.

Use a 1" blue masking tape to keep your paint line straight and true. Lay the door down flat and face-up to do your work...

This measure should add years of service to your door... At the first sign of any rust ~ you know what to do.

As for Zanussi, I doubt if you could muster enough owners to pursue any legal actions... sorry.

3 years old on a whirlpool and you already have rust do you live in a wet or damp area? usually you dont see rust until 4-5 years its due to the type of paint that they used in the factory not as good and the cheaper type than what they used to use be happy though that it is working properly most maytags around that same time frame end up having some serious run problems if you would like to replace the panel that is rusted message me back the model number and i can send you a schemtic diagram of how your machine goes together as well as provide the cheapest place to obtain your part by doing a comparison among a couple different suppliers if you have any further questions message me back with these as well and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

99 dodge ram fuse 12 that controls mirrors, interior lights and radio, blows out everytime you put one in. none of these things works at all. fuse was blown when i got truck, replaced it and it blew out...

Along side of where the door closes, is the plastic trim between the carpet and door jamb . Unscrew this piece of trim, a wiring harness runs along it, as well as the seat belt module under the seat wiring. What I found was one of the screws rub the harness and shorted out the system. Repaired the wires ALL GOOD!

My door handle is broken. Is it posssible to

You should be able to buy only the door handle and avoid having to replace the entire door. carries the handle. Just type in the model number you provided and look for item #3 under the parts listing. The part number and price varies based on the color you need. Make sure you order the correct color. To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Hyundai accent '02 inside door handle & Lock removal

Removing the door is very tricky, trust me on this. I ended up breaking it the first time, so please learn from my mistake.

1. Remove all visible screws: 2 at bottom of door, 3 on front near hinge, 1 on inside the door lever. You will need an average size phillips screwdriver to do this.

2. On the door handle itself, you will see two circles. Pop the front one out. You will need a LARGE size phillips screwdriver to do this.

3. Once screws are removed, take a (standard) flat-head screwdriver, preferable one with a large face, and pry the triangular piece of plastic (that covers the outside SIDE mirror) off. This will aide in puting the door panel back on...TRUST ME!!!

4. Take the same flat-head screwdriver, and pry behind the door lock (at the same time, push forward toward the door hinge). The assembly should pop out.

5. Gently pry the door panel from the door, making sure not to break any unnecessary pieces along the way. The door panel should be hanging by the window sill opening.

6. This is where it will get tricky. It is advised that you use help with this part: Angle the door panel at a 45 degree angle. AT THE SAME TIME, slightly bend and twist the door lock handle until it fits through the hole. You will see the 3 pegs the held it in the door from before. Also note: Be careful not to break the 2 poles that are attached to the lock.

7. After popping the lock through the hole, you should be able to lift the door upward, and off the sill. Repeat these steps in reverse order to re-attach door panel.

Be careful not to rip sound-deadening paper found on inside of door unless you intend to remove or replace it! Not only does it prevent dirt and moisture from entering your door (and possible rusting it from the inside out), but it makes your speakers sound better too!


**It is also recommended to put a tiny bead of silicone on the inside of the door panel to help suppress any rattling, and prevent moisture and dust from entering. It also helps your screws obtain a tighter fit. Hope this helps!
