Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Maytag MDB6600AWW that is giving me a fit. It only works when it wants and the door is hard to operate as the handle isn't connected correctly anymore.


Answers :

This is common for this type of Maytag dishwashers. Otherwise it's a very solid machine.
You need to replace the door handle with switches. Here is the part. "New10" coupon takes 10% off.

Turn off the power to the dishwasher - the hot wire is connected to one of the switches on the handle mechanism and is always on.
If I remember correctly you need to remove only the control panel screws to get to the parts you need to replace. (if not - remove screws on the inner door also). Remove the control panel and replace the door handle with mechanism. The handle should not break anymore as the new one has metal hinge pins.
Good luck
It could be your lid switch.

The Simpson Silencio 850 door does not shut properly and the dishwasher stops operating,but once you push hard on the door,the dishwasher starts again. There are no leaks ,but the door must have a sensor registering the correct pre-load force against the door seal , which in turn,allows the machine to operate. My machine does not work until you push hard against the closed door. What is the problem please?

The door now drops hard when opening. In the past the door would drop slowly and was "not heavy" . I found a rubber piece on the floor just below the door. It looks like a rectangular washer . I am assuming the rubber piece helped slow down the drop of the door. Is this a correct assumption? Is this an easily repaired problem? Your help would be greatly appreciated

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

The release clasp on the front of the dishwasher seems to be broken. It does not click correctly when I attempt to open the door and seems "free". For a few times, it seemed like it was hard to open but no one used a lot of force, we just tried several times and then it would open. Can this be a part I can replace myself or do I need to call a repairman?
