\015 Granddaughter stood on GE profile dishwasher door and now it goes down too far when opening, making the bottom shelf of dishes "fall" when pulling out. The SPRING assembly itself is okay (it's the one with pulleys).\015

Answers :

This happens when people leave the door down, I've seen it many, many times, sometimes the door/hinge assembly can be replaced or even bent back, sometimes it totals out the unit...Good luck !

Our Amana ADB1500AWW dishwasher leaks at far left and far right edges ( at bottom points) of the inside door panel due to a design flaw. ie - In the fully open position ( door in horizontal position) the far left and far right edges (at bottom) of inside plastic door panel are stressed beyond what the plastic can withstand consequently the edges of the panel crack as far as 3 inches from edge to inside. This crack is very small and cannot be seen until the panel is removed and then full insp

Hi. We have a Bosch 4072 6301 which is about 9 years old and has always worked well. Recently is has begun to leave dishes unclean, particularily on the top shelf but also on the bottom. I have checked the water jets for blockages, checked the drain (as far as it is accessible). The heating element stills works as there is steam when the door is opened. If I open in the middle of the cycle I can see water coming out of the jets correctly, I can't tell if the pressure is correct. Any th

Hi, I have a small leak at the bottom right hand corner of the door. If you push in on the door while it's running it stops and the noise level goes down. Is there an adjustment for the door or would it just be the seal, it's 4 yr. old. My wife say's that the grand kids have leaned on the door in the down position , we try to keep it up when they are around , that's why I am asking about a door adjustment. Thanks


No adjustment. Try cleanig door gasket. If still leaks hinge probably got bent from leaning on door. Or door got bent. Needs to be taken apart to find cause for problem. ... Bosch 24 in. SHE44C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

We have had an LG 7810 dishwasher since 2007. There is a film always left in the bottom of the dishwasher (large area, covers most of the bottom, not just near the drain) and a moldy sludge that builds at the bottom where the door seals. We can clean it out manually, but I don't think you should have to wash the inside of your dishwasher.

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?


This sounds like a hinge problem to start with.\015\012\015\012Test the seal by dragging a strip of paper through it with door closed. Probably that left hinge isn't holding door close enough which was probably the original cause. As se ... KitchenAid Architect? II S SERIES KUDS03FT Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Have a Kenmore dishwasher #665.1677993, approx. 13 years old. Upon starting new cycle the pump turns on for a few short seconds, then off, then after a couple minutes it goes on again for a few seconds then off, then later in the cycle it does stay on for a longer period of time. In conjuntion with this intermitent problem it has begun leaking out the bottom of the front door. I have checked drain line, check valve, strainer/screen and vent in the door. I assume it is an electrical issue?

Recently replaced the control board for Electrolux EIDW6105GW1; after nearly a month of working w/o any problems this evening the machine made it through the wash cycle and then stopped working (all lights on wash cycle door menu are flashing). Took kick plate off bottom to check control board and the leak dectector is lit. I can see no leaks in front and am reluctant to do anything else with this POS.

I have a Bauknecht dishwasher GS 835 S purchased in 1986. Since moving it while having kitchen refit there are two small leaks. One is from the hose that goes into the bottom of the machine towards the front, and the other is a drip that comes down between the front facia panel and the machine door. Possibly the door seal is slightly perished? I do not want to pay the earth for callout charges etc; if spares are not available. If they are where can I get them, and will they be very costly. I

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?
