If I close soap door and turn timer knob on outside of door the soap door will open after I make two full turns of the knob.If this cant be fixed can I just put soap in the bottom tray that has no door or put soap in both trays and do not close the soap door? Thank You RH.

I have an Indesit DV62WHUK dishwasher and the last night the door made a banging sound when it was opened and now it won't close and will fall back under it's own weight. I suspect either a spring, spring cable or a hinge has broken. How do I check this? Is the spring mechanism in the door or main unit?


There is a plastic unit behind the door handle which houses a spring under tension. This latches the door closed and makes the electrical connection to allow the machine to work properly. You need to buy a new unit (\302\24315) which is a bit fiddly ... Indesit 23 in. DV62 IX Built-in Dishwasher

Our normally quiet Bosch SHX36L Dishwasher has started being noisy while running. I found if I lean on the door it closes a bit, and the sound returns to the level it used to run at. It appears that the door isn't closing tightly anymore, but we can't see an obvious fix for this. Thanks for your time!

The door to my Kitchenaid dishwasher lost a spring. It will fall to the 100% open position. When you close it, the spring does not help it back up. Where is the spring? How do I get a diagram to see how to fix this? thanks.


The springs are located at the bottom of unit one on left and one on the right remove bottom cover and they are above the side railing...sometimes there is not enough room to access from the bottom and you actually have to pull unit out a few inches ...

My whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 detergent door will not open during wash cycle. Yes the compartment, springs and door are thoroughly clean. Will not open if I just close the door and remains empty. I'm wondering if perhaps I knocked off some random part that makes it open. So please tell me how darn thing opens and perhaps a pic of the parts so I could see if ones missing. Thank you for any help offered for this, its driving me nuts.

I have a 3 year old stainless steel kitchen aide dishwasher. Recently when opening the door there was a loud "sprong" noise. There is now a cord hanging out the bottom of the door and the "spring" action that makes it easy to open a close is not working. The door opens "heavy" and will go to the full open position.

Hi - I have the Miele G 2470 dishwasher. It starts, and I have it set at "2 in 1 Tab" and on "Normal". I close the door and the machine makes a sound like it is starting, but then after abiut 30 seconds it starts alarm beeping and doesn't run. When you open the door it shows the light is now on next to "Intake/Drain". To stop the beeping I have to press the "off" circle. This sequence happens each time. what do you recommend to get it to work? thank you very much. Lori.

The electronic panel on the top of the door doesnt light up anymore and is unresponsive, when the power is turned on, the machine makes a sound like its running or draining or something, but nothing is happening. This all started after a potential electrical disruption following a power outage. Perhaps there is a fuse or some relatively easy way to fix this? or am I screwed and should just call a repair man. Thanks for your suggestions, Brodie

The door on my dishwasher everytime you open it is making a loud creaking sound and there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher always. what to do?


The clicking sound you are hearing is the drain pump solenoid trying to move water and purge the system. The water at the bottom is collecting because it is clogged up with something stuck in the drain valve. Disconnect the drain hose and remove fore ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

Bosch SHX33A: lights come on properly in response to buttons, it has power. Close door, it makes the normal startup sounds, then water flows in. Normally, at this point washer starts into normal cycle. Instead, it just sits there and nothing happens. Forever. Not a matter of patience: we've left it in that state all night long. Have flipped power circuit and started over, everything else I can think of to kick-start it, no change.

The door has always made a horrible noise that I could not get to go away (I shot some WD40 into all available places). I learned to live with the noise. NOW, the spring on the door has obviously broken. I am afraid someone will open the dishwasher and hurt a small child with the falling door! I see where you addressed the broken spring problem. Do you think I could fix the horrible noise at the same time? Do you think this is something my husband could fix?
