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.

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!)


Well I'll try to help you get this opened. I don't know how much space you have at the top side edge of the dishwasher. You need a long stiff rod like a metal clothes hanger straightened so it can reach from the side to a little past the dishwasher m ... GE Profile PDW9880NSS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

I have a Whirlpool Energy Star dishwasher (no clue what the model is). Door will not latch. Inside of door says to press and hold ''Heated Dry'' 5 seconds to lock control and repeat to unlock. This is not helping. We rent and do not have a manual. Please help.


Happened to me today. After much head scratching I found that the screw attaching the unit to the underside of the kitchen counter had loosened and was preventing the door from closing all the way. I tightened the screw and was back in business. ... Dishwashers

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!!!!

My whirlpool dishwasher is not washing the dishes properly. when finished cycle, I still see the dishwasher tablet half used. The grey long piece at the back, seems to have come out of the two holes it fits into on the "floor" of the inside of the machine. I've clicked it back into place, but it still pops out.

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?


Hello, \015\012\015\012Welcome to FixYa.\015\012\015\012I believe the parts you are referring to are likely the blocks in each corner of the outer door panel. These have been a sticking point for many I tech over ... Bosch Dishwashers

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

This seems to be a drainage problem, obviously. There may be some food debris in the drain tube where it connects to the drain pipe. It would be easy to detach and do a visual check, and see if you can clear the clog. Also, try to s ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher Grit? Hi, I have a dishwasher BOSCH around 4 years old. It has been fine but has for past couple months been leaving a sand-like grit inside glasses and on plates. This is nothing that I can pinpoint as having come from the dirty dishes - food on anything placed in to be washed, its driving me nuts! Can you help?? Julie, Sydney Australia


Hi julie\015\012\015\012\015\012 Chances are you are using to much detergent and the water is not hot enough. cut back on the detergent and run your hot water tap at the sink first and that should fix it.\015\012\015\01 ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch SMU2046Uc/14 about 15 years old. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, for the last couple of months. Now it has stopped working completely as if no power. Checked the breaker. Another problem - one of our kids just today jammed the door lock on it and we cannot get the door to latch at all. Can you help with any one of these problems? How do you fix or reset the door latch??? What else can we check to troubleshoot the dishwasher? Thanks!

My Bosch dishwasher is taking hours (at least 3 - maybe more) to complete a cycle. There is gummy, yucky stuff building up inside - sorta pinkish brownish. Could the water not be hot enough? A couple of months ago we installed an on-demand hot water heater and I wonder if that could have anythig to do with it. I've tried running the hot water in the sink first but that doesn't help. Any ideas


If your on demand heater is one of the small ones that mounts under the sink, it will not flow enough water to fill your dishwasher. the dishwasher is waiting for the water level to fill before it starts washing. your bosch will heat its own wat ... Bosch SHX46A07UC Built-in Dishwasher

There was no category for general home repair or locksmith services, so I hope someone can help me. The doorknob on my master BR closet is broken... the knob will turn but nothing happens. The door opens into the closet, so I cannot access the screws or the door hinges on the inside of the closet. The molding on the bedroom side of the door prevents me from sliding a credit card to move the latch. The knob has no lock, just a flat surface on the knob, but other bedroom doorknobs have a small acc

Our dishwasher smells like fish inside of it. We tried pouring in vinegar and running the rinse cycle but it hasn't helped. All of our dishes now smell like fish. Is there some place we are supposed to clean out? We have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II.


Check the main drain system, that is connected to the dish washer drain hose. There must be some clogging!Remove that hose junction point and clean it. Try draining the hose straight into a bucket and watch for free flow. Oth ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Hello! My 3 yr old Bosch dishwasher (I think it is a SHE 43) is doing two things: 1) leaving a serious white film on dishes and glasses 2) leaving grit inside glasses on the top rack (always on glasses placed on the far back right of the top rack) I've tried cleaning the machine with hot washes with no dishes, vinegar only, but no luck. Any thoughts? Many thanks for your help!


Hello. Since you have already cleansed the interior of your dishwasher, we must conclude that the problem is with the water itself. If you do not have a filter on your water, you may want to consider installing a dirt/rust filter, at least on the h ... Dishwashers

Bosch logixx dishwasher sounds like its running continuously & will go through entire program but does not fill or wash. Filled it with hot water manually to try for air locks & it does drain out. Then continues to attempt to drain even while door is opened. My amateur guess is that its a float switch but can I get at it from the inside or from the back? If thats what it is. Hope you can help,thanks.John

I just purchased and installed an Haier ESD 210 dishwasher. Everything seems to work fine except the machine will not shut off. Also, after selecting the "wash program" the LED blinks continually during all cycles. It takes some effort to latch the door but it does lock. Can you help? Thank you.

This can be caused by water temperature.\015\012Please Make sure that the water supplied to the unit is 120 degrees or higher.\015\012This can be checked on the hot water heater thermostat setting. ... Haier Dishwashers
