Indesit d63 dishwasher, door locked shut. took top off+got to latch, the plastic catch wouldn't pull out of the latch. undid it all, all seems unbroken but cannot seem to arrange the latch so that it will allow the plastic catch to come out when levered. also not sure if the handle is supposed to click the switch to another position, or just tweak the switch as it opens the door. is a new latch supplied with the switch ?

One of the plastic spacers on the handle broke.

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!
