Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The detergent dispenser door on my AEG favorit 86070vi will not spring open. I found a small coil spring on the floor and suspect that it was involved with the opening function. For info, the dispenser door fell off a few weeks ago and was replaced by my wife. She can't recall how she did it and I can't see how it can be removed. The spring has one arm approx 10 mm long, the other is about 2 mm and the coil (body) is about 10 mm. Hope you can help

Kitchenaid model kudso3ctblo, Type 577-0 Ser. FU3202943 When the dishwasher is finished, the soap tablet is still inside the dispenser & the door is still closed. We can open the door by hand & see that the soap has not dissolved. We found a tiny spring on the floor last week. Is there a metal spring in the dispenser? Could this have broken off & now keeps the door from opening?

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

The spring-loaded flip-up door for the soap dispenser on my Kenmore dishwasher is broken. It seems the spring has come undone. I have had two repairmen come by and neither could put the spring back in. It seems senseless for me to get a new dishwasher just because of this stupid little spring. Help?!!

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.

Detergent dispenser spring door is either missing the spring or broken. In any case it opens but is no longer spring loaded. I can't figure a way to remove the assembly unless I have to take off the front cover. Any ideas?

Hello,I hope you can answer the question below for me. My dishwasher is a Hotpoint model BFI680 - integrated. I want to replace the old interlocking assembly with a new one as the spring has broken and I can not close the dishwasher door. I have trouble removing the old interlocking assembly though. I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom.

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled. Spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove as much gunk out of the dispenser as I could with the help of a plumbers flexible plastic drain cleaning tool. This really angers me as

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. The catch on the dispenser will have released, but the dispenser door will not have sprung open. I am not sure exactly what the problem is -- the soap dispenser door simply seems a bit stiff in its holster. Given a little nudge, it springs open fine. I h

Whirlpool DU980QPDQ3: As per FixYa solution, I was successful in removing the inner panel of my dishwasher door in order to clean it. Since reinstalling the inner door panel, including the cover and drawbar for the detergent dispenser latch, the dispenser door will not open during the wash cycle.

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something

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?

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model SHU9915UC/U11. The spring mechanism on the detergent door cracked, and I bought the part to replace it. I took the front cover off of the dishwasher to determine how to replace it. Two white plastic "things", maybe spacers, fell out. I need 2 things: a) how to gain access to the spring on the detergent door so that I can replace it, and b) how to put the door spacers back on. An exploded parts view would probably help a great deal. Michael J. Orr

The latch won't engage, so the door won't close. Obviously, this means the machine won't operate. We have removed the racks, checked the hinges to see if anything is lodged there and looked to see if anything is in the unit preventing the door from closing. Could the latch be broken? If so, what is involved in the repair?
