Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Amana D/w Model ABB1500AWQ Door will not open. D/W runs thru cycle but latch will not release.


Answers :

Hi Bobstefani,\015\012
\015\012If the latch is broken, then I suggest first of all disconect the electricity from the dishwasher. You may want to try using a small screwdriver and insert it where the latch is to activate the opening mechanism. If it doesnt open, then there are two options, I suggest to call the technical service to replace the door with a new latch.

HI, this is a malfunctioning door lock mechanism. simply replacing this assembly will fix this issue.

I recommend testing for control issue as well. you can achieve this by using a multimeter to test the current flow from the control board to the actual door latch assembly. use the contact clips on the door latch mechanism for testing the current. you will have to disassemble the front panel to expose this mechanism. once connected, choose the cycle and click the start button or Dial. if the meter registers a current and the door latch remains dormant, simply replace the door latch mechanism. if the meter cant pick up a current during the cycle, you will have a control issue or a wring issue.

In most cases, the door latch assembly(mechanism) will be the main issue.

I have a Magtag dishwasher, model #MDB6650AWQ thats not running. I check the power supply all the way up to the door latch and it shows that there's power there. However the circuit panel not lighting up and nothing happens when you push the normal wash cycle or any of the other buttons. I believe the problems is electrical in the door latch handle. Is there any way to check the solenoids which are attached to the door handle before I order a new door latch.


I have the same problem with mine. It is 3 1/2 years old. The repair man was just here and said it is the control panel. It will cost $171.85 for the part and then $53.85 today for his visit and then a return visit when the part is in.\015\0 ... Maytag Dishwashers

Dishwasher issues hotpoint dishwasher model HDA1200 used for a year and put into storage for a year. reinstalled this weekend. dishwasher was fussy about the door latch for a minute...door latch did not want to engage all the way...but went into its cycle. we stopped it and added a few dishes for a test run it started right up and ran about 8 minutes and shut itself down. it will not restart. the power supply is ok. no leakage about the door once latch engaged. what can we do?


It can be the 10A fuse located in the back of the machine. but.... storage is kind of a problem with determining what is wrong with it.\015\012Mouse can have chewed the wires, moisture can have rusted or corroded some components.\015\012C ... Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens. However, the soap will just run down the inside of the door and pool on th

Our Hotpoint Dishwasher Model HDA200X-73BA has two little white plastic pipe stubs poking out of the bottom of the dishwasher. During one of the cycles--(I don't think it is the drain cycle)-- some water is being released from one of these pipe stubs and then it stops and the other one runs some water. They each only run for a few seconds, but the water is just running on the floor. These little pipe stubs are about one half inch in diameter and project out of the bottom of the dishwasher about

Good afternoon - I have a Whirlpool model LSR7233EQ0 washer. The washer works fine in regards to draining, filling, lower agitator works...however, the top agitator does not engage and almost sounds like grinding. However (I know you are not supposed to do this), when the machine is in the wash cycle, I push sideways on the top of the agitator and it then does engage and agitate. When I release pressure, the top agitator does not work. Thanks for your help, Michael

Detergent dispenser will not stay shut so the soap power falls out before washing starts. Last time use I opened the door by mistake part way through the cycle. Could this have messed up the latch release mechanism? Thanks, slice10sheep


Opening the door did not affect the latch on the dispenser. The catch does wear out and can be replaced. This involves disassembling the door and a small jigsaw puzzle of springs and levers. If you are attempting I would advise taking pictures to ref ... Kenmore Dishwashers
