Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The handle on my Maytag Quiet series 100 dishwasher recently broke. I assume from regualar wear and tear. Should I pinch the handle when I open and close? I was told to pinch it when closing and that will keep it from breaking.

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times.

Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I
