Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I want to replace the door spring in an old Kenmore dishwasher, but the screws to remove the bottom panel are flush with the kitchen cabinets. Can I move the dishwasher forward about an inch to expose the screws?


Answers :

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls check the piping works and the drainage connections by visually inspecting these. Normally cabinet works at the sides should allow you this. Additionally, pls make sure that the electrical connection should be removed. Thereafter, you could then make an informed decision whether the attachments would allow forward movement and by how much.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
This can be done but be careful not to make no damage to the object.with great care you should have to do this.

New kenmore dishwasher and it is sitting too low there is a quarter inch at hole at the top of the dishwasher under the counter. It seems to be tight in the space; can we cut off the metal bracket that screws in under the counter. That way we can raise the dishwaster the quater inch. I think it is tight enough not to move around without the top screws. What is your opinion?


Hello,No do not remove this bracket. if you remove this bracket the dishwasher will tip forward when you ope the door!Why would you want to change anything by cutting a bracket? What is the matter with it!is your dishwasher doing so ... Dishwashers

I have a Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no

LG Dishwasher I just purchase a new LG Dishwasher. The installer told me that the dishwasher can not be flush to the Kitchen cabinets because of the metal cases around the dishwasher and also it can not be aligned with the top and bottom of the cabinets because the door is too thick to give it clearance to open. I have had two other dishwashers in this spot and never had any issue. Thoughts? Thanks, Jen

When we updated our kitchen, we chose a Miele dishwasher because we were told it was one of the best made. Unfortunately, while it does clean the dishes well, and is the quietest dishwasher I have ever had (almost silent!), it does not fit firmly in it's place, and even tips forward slightly when both of the drawers are extended. It will not anchor into the side walls with screws, so does anyone have any suggestions?

Screw drop Hi I was installing my new LG dishwasher and I droped a screw in the hole in the side panel where you can put a screw to connect to the side of your cabinet.

I can not get the screw out or see it now although I know it is in the dishwasher. Is there anyway of getting it out or will this cause a problem? Since it is in t

Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem

Our kitchen drain clogged recently and water drained back into our VUD141 dishwasher. A plumber cleared the drain, and turned on the DW - which pumped out the standing water. But now, we have no water flowing into the dishwasher. The drain pumps, the heater works, but there's no water supply. The plumber who cleared the drain said he didn't DO dishwashers, and I cannot locate the owner's manual since we prepared for a move.

We just bought this dishwasher. The instructions say it doesn't need to be anchored and it doesn't come with the clips you usually see for dishwashers that need to screwed into the frame (or have a place where such clips could be attached). That said, the dishwasher completely tilts forward when the top rack is loaded, so something is definitely not right. Has anyone had this problem and/or know how to resolve? Thanks.

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
