Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Door won't latch. Model SHX68M

\015 Door won't latch. There is nothing blocking the baskets or lodged in there. The dishwasher runs if I hold the door in. The latch won't hold the door in place.\015

Answers :

The most common cause of your stated problem is that the latch or the latch catch has slid over a little bit so it doesn't match up as it needs to. Typically, there are two screws there that you can loosen to reposition the latch. After it is in the right spot tighten the screws back down and you will be in business.
