Buying a new dishwasher or\012hiring a repair person can cost hundreds of dollars. With the proper\012know-how, anyone can fix most dishwasher problems and save money. One\012of the most common problems is a malfunctioning door larch.\012\011\011\011

\012\012Look\012at the decorative cover that rests against the door. There should be a\012slot on the underside for a flathead screwdriver or something similar.\012Pop it in there and you can pop the plate off which should reveal the\012screws used to attach the 2 sections of doorknob (inside & outside)\012together. Tighten those screws and replace the cover.
