... Dishwashers

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

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?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on. The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

Machine cannot finish cycle and is stuck in pumping out mode. Only tiny amount of water in drain basin at bottom, no excessive water. Was set at 10pm, still attempting to drain 8am! Has no diagnostic dials or manual over rides so continues on whether door is open or closed, even if I switch off and on again. Possible related issue, recently finish at end of washes has been "grainy", far from perfect, surfaces slightly sandy feeling.

I am getting a clicking/ticking noise (1 click/second) from my Maytag (model MDB9100)dishwasher after it goes through its auto clean normal wash cycle. At the end of the cycle the arrow = clean and the clicking sound is there. I opened the washer door for about 1 minute noted the soap containers are empty, dishes clean, machine still hot/steamy. Closed the washer door and the clicking sound resumes. Please advise.

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped. No where can I find

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

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

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way.

There is soap left at the end of a cycle from the dispenser. It is trailing down the door and standing in a puddle at the bottom of the dishwasher. The soap that is not in the trap door seems to wash away, but not the soap that comes out once the trap door pops for the main wash. Any ideas on how to fix this or what could be causing the problem?
