Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Recently when opening the door we heard something snap and the door fell open all the way. It appears some type of counter balance broke free. We would like to know what parts are needed to be replaced and how to do it.


Answers :

The door is holded by the hinges.the hinges are connected to the machine as well as to the door.\015\012if the hinges are bent or get cracked or loose then it will not hold the door.\015\012
\015\012To repair the door hinge assembly, you would need to shut off the breaker and water supply to the dishwasher and pull the dishwasher out to access the components. The dishwasher is normally secured under the counter by brackets that are screwed into the bottom of the counter above the dishwasher. If you can locate these brackets and remove the screws, then you should be able to pull the dishwasher out from under the counter. Once the dishwasher is pulled out, you can check the door hinge assembly for the broken component. The assembly on your dishwasher should look similar to the one shown in the adjustment procedures shown below. It is likely that you have a broken door balance link cord or a disconnected/broken spring. You may need to just reconnect the components properly. NOTE: Be careful when working with the tension spring. The image below shows adjustment procedures for installing a custom door panel on a similar model. You do not need to adjust the door tension. Use the image and procedure for information on how your hinge assembly is attached.If you have a broken component, you can order the part from the Sears PartsDirect website.
These tips may help you fix this problem yourself. If you are not completely confident that you can safely access the door hinge components, then I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the door failure.

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?

I have a Maytag DWU8250BAX and the thing leaks like crazy. I just replaced the door gasket, but that is not the problem. When I took a closer look at the door it seems as though the water is getting up and into the door through a space in the bottom of the door. It seems to me like there should be another door seal to fill a gap that sits between the door hinges. If anyone knows if there should be a seal here and then what the part number might be that would be great. Thanks!

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model SHU9915UC/U11. The spring mechanism on the detergent door cracked, and I bought the part to replace it. I took the front cover off of the dishwasher to determine how to replace it. Two white plastic "things", maybe spacers, fell out. I need 2 things: a) how to gain access to the spring on the detergent door so that I can replace it, and b) how to put the door spacers back on. An exploded parts view would probably help a great deal. Michael J. Orr

Need a service/repair manual for a Bosch SGS0905AU/01. The machine is completely dead (no display) after a burnt smell came from it. On the pump motor is a broken/melted brown attachment with a broken ceramic(?) disc inside which looks like some type of capacitor. I really need to know what this is/was so I can replace it. Also, need to know whether there is another fuse somewhere in the machine as that has most likely blown as well. TIA

Hello, I purchased a Kitchen Aid Architect II series KUDSO3FTPA3 ~ two years ago. It is deigned so you can put your own panel on it.

My Frigidaire fghd2433kf1 starting flashing PF occasionally. I would open and close the door and it would go away. It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works. It acts like it has no power coming into it. I checked the breakers and the wires connecting the power into the dishwasher. No luck. I replaced the control panel, but not the control board. It did

I have a Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no

So I found this power washer for sale. The seller claims that the washer generates a good stream of water, not just full power. He also mentions that after a few minutes the engine starts to bog down like it is working extra hard. Does this sound like a pump issue? Could something be clogged or would the pump need to be replaced? Or should I avoid this power washer?
