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 ?


Check with whoever you order the latch from, usually parts are individual for electrical parts and never assume that the screw or washer will come with new one, save every piece. ... Indesit 24 in. D63 Free-standing Dishwasher

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 Queit Partner III. The cleaning blades stopped moving-started it-waited awhile-opened it-the blades were in the same position. Took the bottom blade+filter cover off. Then I held down the metal piece on the case and switched on the micro switch on the door to see it running with the door open. The water shot straight up about 4-5" that's it. This does not seem to be enough pressure for the water to get all the way up to the top spinner. Am I looking at a new pump

Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher. This worked fine until the door catch broke. I replaced the catch but could not remember which way round the two electrical leads went (red and black). I tried both ways with the same result. The lights come on the control panel and I can change the programme, but on closing the door the house fuses blow. I have checked the earth cable is fine. Any ideas?

Start button flashes 2hr, but will not start the dishwasher, when touched. Also, lights on top of the door are not always functioning. I phoned Maytag and customer service had me turn off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. This did not change the dishwasher. I think that the door latch is not snapping into position, when I open the door.

I have an Asko Model 1473/1503 with the word excellence on the front door panel. It is approx 14 yrs old. I noticed that the main switch has been failing and that I have had to giggle it about to latch. It has now completely given up the ghost and there is zero power to the dishwasher. The CB is on . I believe I have to change the main switch but I have no idea how to get at it to remove and replace it. Any ideas?

My soap cap remains in the closed position at all times. The clasp mechanism works fine, if I cycle through with the door open I can see and hear the catch release when it should. But the door remains closed at all times. I leave it open to run, and sometimes it's closed when the wash cycle finishes! Is there an easy way to take the cap off and clean it? Or do I need to WD-40 around it?

My Bosch SHE98M will not respond to pushing the Cleartouch buttons. It is just stuck displaying the normal wash. It will not respond to pressing any of the touchpads.

It was playing up before this in that sometimes the programme would not start when a button was pressed but I just closed the door mor
