Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher with an electronic latch will not close.

\015 If I hold the door closed a cycle will start but if I let go the cycle will stop. Is there any way to reset the electronic latch or could this be caused with another issue all together?\015

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so. The electronics work fine, the racks fit fine (we also removed them, and the door still won't close), and nothing appear

LG - LDF7811ST Dishwasher will not turn on at all. I have replaced the main PCB board and checked all wires for shorts. The PCB board does have 120Vac to the board. I have also checked the latch and it does close the switch when the dishwasher is closed. I think it may be the main switch/power button board but can't seem to find the part number or alternate part numbers that can be used.

Kenmore 665.1646 dishwasher. A nearby lighting strike killed some electronic devices in our house. We have electricty to our dishwasher but the console will not light at all. The fuse, latch switch and overfill switch all check out good. We replaced the electronic control, 8539379, and still have no lights. What else could it be?


Hi.If you have tested fuse, overfill, latch, and you have a new electronic control, then it is necessarily a wiring problem. However, since wiring problem causing this after lighting is quite uncommon, I suggest double checking all the re ... Dishwashers

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed. Any thoughts on th

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

Hi -\015\012\015\012It's almost impossible to repair the latch if it's broken. It composed of fiddly interlocking plastic parts and a spring. When they break, it's usually because one of the plastic arms or spigots has snapped off. There's too ... Bosch Dishwashers

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I

We have a Whirlpool mod# DU1055XTVD0 dishwasher .. the blue latch designed to keep the lid to the detergent dispenser closed after filling has come loose from the inside door panel and now will not stay in place to keep the detergent lid shut. We did find a small o-ring in the bottom of the tub that apparently is part of what helps maybe hold this latch in place, but obviously there must be something else that fits inside the hole the latch goes in that keeps it secure.
