GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray. I have to open the machine and add the soap to the bottom of the machine if I want to get my di

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latc ... Maytag 24 in. MDB3700 Built-in Dishwasher

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. Any thoughts on th

When opening the door to my Kitchenaid Superba dishwasher, I heard a loud noise inside the machine. The door slammed open. Now, it opens, closes, and latches; however, the spring-assist that slows the opening no longer works, and the heavy door, when unlatched to open, swings freely and quickly down.

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?

The release clasp on the front of the dishwasher seems to be broken. It does not click correctly when I attempt to open the door and seems "free". For a few times, it seemed like it was hard to open but no one used a lot of force, we just tried several times and then it would open. Can this be a part I can replace myself or do I need to call a repairman?

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!)

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

Need a service/repair manual for a Bosch SGS0905AU/01. The machine is completely dead (no display) after a burnt smell came from it. On the pump motor is a broken/melted brown attachment with a broken ceramic(?) disc inside which looks like some type of capacitor. I really need to know what this is/was so I can replace it. Also, need to know whether there is another fuse somewhere in the machine as that has most likely blown as well. TIA
