Melted rubber gasket, black rubber residue inside dishwasher I had a problem with the latch not connecting and therefore could not turn on the dishwasher. After, two months with Sears repairmen, dishwasher still did not work. I noticed as I put my head into the dishwasher to check on a buildup of residue this black glue all over the inside. Repair man stated it was animal fat. After spending some time looking at the situation under the door and inside I determined it was the gasket. He o

My GE dishwasher's door is stuck shut ~ I'm assuming a broken latch. I was told to fix the latch, the dishwasher has to be taken out from under the counter top (in order to get the door open). My problem is: with the dishwasher door stuck shut, it's impossible to unscrew the dishwasher from the countertop... Any helpful hints? Pleeeeeeeease (all of my silverware is stuck INSIDE the locked dishwasher - LOL!)

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.

I have a Bosch SHU8805UC/14 dishwasher. I took the front door panel off to install it better but ended up with two extra pieces that look like either part 935400 Door Guard, or 935526 Support. I cannot seem to find any place on the inside of the door where these pieces would fit. The dishwasher works fine but seems like it got noisier after I put it back together without these two parts. Can you help me locate the proper place for these 2 plastic parts?

I have a 7 year old Kenmore 24" (mod. 16532201) built-in dishwasher. For the past several months now I have noticed a dark almost greasy film covering the inside of the dishwasher after doing a load of dishes. It can also be found around the soap dispenser door, basically everywhere. I'm wondering if the black rubber around the inside front of the dishwasher is deteriorating. It doesn't appear to be damaged or cracked. I have tried "Finish" dishwashing cleaner several times, but to no avail

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.

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

Hi. My dishwasher won't let me move the latch into the locked position. When I turn the knob past the start cycle I hear a klunk noise. When looking at the latch it is obvious that there is a gold color piece of metal on top of and in front of the silver latch blocking it from moving sideways. Is this something I can fix on my own, or need a repairman or time for a new washer? The washer will be 5 years old in October. Thank you, KIm Martinez

Leaky Dishwasher I recently moved into a new house that has a brand new Magic Chef dishwasher. We haven't even had a chance to use it, but last night discovered water leaking from the bottom onto the floor. When I opened the door, there was about 3-4 inches of water inside. I baled as much of the (slimey) water out as I could, and that stopped the leak. Now afraid to run the dishwasher for fear that it might leak even worse. E71195 Type 777-0
