I have a Jenn Air JDB 4000 AWB that is seven years old. I have had several problems with this unit during that time. Yesterday when I tried to open the door the "push handle" stuck in the depressed position inside the front door panel and will not release. The front door is locked shut. I have not tried to force anything (yet). How can I get the door open?

The door won't close. The latch seems jammed. I have tried setting and releasing the child lock inside the handle. The problem seems to be with the latch itself. From inside the door, I can see the tongue the clips into the latch, but it seems stuck. I can't get it to move, even with gentle force.

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.

Jdb2100aws dishwasher - door handle fasteners loose, handle ready to drop off.

The door would not shut. We checked all around and nothing was blocking the door from shutting. We determined the latch on the door was not releasing. I forced the door shut. The touchpad works...lights come on but unit will not operate. The release handle on the front just wiggles back and forth without effect. Lowes says it is one of three parts...none returnable. Any thoughts on what part and whether this is something average consumer can self fix? Thanks.


Hi,\015\012 Lowes is right regarding the parts needed.\015\012\015\012First check the strike part is ok - that's on the body of the machine not the door.\015\012\015\012Unplug the machine.\015\012\015\012Remo ... Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher.

I am not sure exactly what the problem is -- the soap dispenser door simply seems a bit stiff in its holster. Given a little nudge, it springs open fine. I h
