Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My maytag dishwasher model PDB2600AWX wont start and wont latch properly unless you push hard on the door I cant tell if the latch over the tub is bad or the latch in the door is bad or both


Answers :

The latch on the door is held by two screws loosen these adjust and then tighten, until you get it right, good luck.
Hello,
first i will suggest you to check why the door is'nt closing properly, so pls check the following:

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Latch\015\012\015\012The\015\012latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close\015\012but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more\015\012easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be\015\012fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching\015\012problem.

If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it\015\012impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to\015\012replace the latch.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Springs\015\012\015\012Your\015\012dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door.\015\012If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and\015\012you need to replace both springs.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Hinges\015\012\015\012The\015\012hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or\015\012deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can\015\012they be straightened well enough.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Door seal\015\012\015\012If\015\012your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the\015\012door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness\015\012persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's\015\012not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But\015\012try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal\015\012conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.just let know for nay updates....

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

We have a Whirlpool mod# DU1055XTVD0 dishwasher .. the blue latch designed to keep the lid to the detergent dispenser closed after filling has come loose from the inside door panel and now will not stay in place to keep the detergent lid shut. We did find a small o-ring in the bottom of the tub that apparently is part of what helps maybe hold this latch in place, but obviously there must be something else that fits inside the hole the latch goes in that keeps it secure.

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped. No where can I find

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?
