I have a hotpoint HDA2000G00WW built in dishwasher. The dishwasher does not run unless you press the plastic door under the latch area. I have adjusted the latch and that does not resolve the problem. I notice that the top three screws that hold the plastic eschucion are no longer holding as the plastic screw areas have broken on the eschucion. Do I need to replace the eschucion or can it be tightened some other way?

I have an Asko 1805 Dishwasher. I've looked at some of the other responses and have this sinking feeling after tonight's series of unfortunate events. Tonight, I pushed on the On/Off switch on the left and it appears to have broken. The dishwasher no longer turns on. If you push in and hold the button, the lights come on, but when you let go, they turn off. This appears to be Part 763255 on RepairClinic.com.

Greetings. I have a Fisher & Paykel dishdrawer - the top drawer appears to have lost power mid cycle and the lid has not retracted - no led display - no response from the buttons. The bottom drawer functions ok. I have tried turning the power off at the wall for 30 seconds and on again. I have tried swapping the top and bottom controllers and the bottom still works but the top does not, so the controllers must be ok Not sure where to find the model number sorry. Any suggestions?

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

I have a 2005 GE profile. There was been an off and on issue with the door latching. Usually a few tries and the interlock beeps. But now, it will not latch. i can manually press the white "button" on the door-side latch female and it beeps. I removed the bottom rack and top one is empty. it seems the longue of the top latch is aligned with the door slot. Any ideas Greg Miller

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. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I

Hey Everyone! Ok try this one! I have been working on a KUDS25 Kitchenaid Dishwasher. It was leaking like a siv from the bottom. I replaced both top and bottom plastic bearings and also tightend all the screws at the bottom. Leak Gone, I thought. It now has small leaks down both sides. I have since been told by the owner that he took the door apart himself. I pulled out the dishwasher from the cabinet and ran it. I could see the leaks at the top on both sides of the door latch.

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed.

We have a Whirlpool mod# DU1055XTVD0 dishwasher .. the blue latch designed to keep the lid to the detergent dispenser closed after filling has come loose from the inside door panel and now will not stay in place to keep the detergent lid shut. We did find a small o-ring in the bottom of the tub that apparently is part of what helps maybe hold this latch in place, but obviously there must be something else that fits inside the hole the latch goes in that keeps it secure.

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?
