Our Amana ADB1500AWW dishwasher leaks at far left and far right edges ( at bottom points) of the inside door panel due to a design flaw. ie - In the fully open position ( door in horizontal position) the far left and far right edges (at bottom) of inside plastic door panel are stressed beyond what the plastic can withstand consequently the edges of the panel crack as far as 3 inches from edge to inside. This crack is very small and cannot be seen until the panel is removed and then full insp

I have a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher. However, the door to the detergent dispenser does not open reliably every load -- usually I have to open the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the load and open the soap dispenser myself.

Hi, I'm working on a KUDI02FRSS0 for my neighbor. She complained the door flew open one day during a wash and the door had been very heavy since. A quick check on the internet, and I thought it would be simple... I installed an 8194001 balance kit. Both cords had broken. However, the door was very hard to close, and once you did close it, it would tend to pop open by itself shortly thereafter. When the door popped open, thanks to the new balance kit, it would not fly open as it had p
