Double dash on display and when put in service/maintenance mode, all the lights came on and stayed on overnight. Still not working until I tested the door switch. It looks like poor engineering on the design. Plastic bar that depressed the door switch was not pushing all the way. It appears that the bar was bent to compensate for the too close tolerances and after the depressing of the switch for six years it did not reach anymore. So I got hair dryer, heated the plastic bar and bent it down to

The control panel on my Maytag MDBH970AW is unresponsive, and the latch is stuck in the "open" position (the plastic piece stays pushed in to the handle and won't come down). I've checked that the unit is getting power from the house. Last time I had this exact problem (when it was under warranty), they had to replace the control panel, the latch, and it seemed like most of the door. What should I do?

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

Whirlpool ADG993, door fault: Hi, a few weeks ago soemthing broke on the door to my diswasher and it falls open wide with no stopping half way as usual. That was fine as the machine could still work, but now the door won't close. All seems fine until you get all but closed and then the door raises slightly from the bottom right corner, preventing it from closing. It looks like something may be jammed in there which pushes the door up at the last minute. There's a man coming out on Friday,

The Simpson Silencio 850 door does not shut properly and the dishwasher stops operating,but once you push hard on the door,the dishwasher starts again. There are no leaks ,but the door must have a sensor registering the correct pre-load force against the door seal , which in turn,allows the machine to operate. My machine does not work until you push hard against the closed door. What is the problem please?

I have a Magtag dishwasher, model #MDB6650AWQ thats not running. I check the power supply all the way up to the door latch and it shows that there's power there. However the circuit panel not lighting up and nothing happens when you push the normal wash cycle or any of the other buttons. I believe the problems is electrical in the door latch handle. Is there any way to check the solenoids which are attached to the door handle before I order a new door latch.


I have the same problem with mine. It is 3 1/2 years old. The repair man was just here and said it is the control panel. It will cost $171.85 for the part and then $53.85 today for his visit and then a return visit when the part is in.\015\0 ... Maytag Dishwashers

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.

What would cause white residue on plastic? Plastic containers, black handles and high heat plastic material type utensils com out with a white powdery feeling residue on them. It takes scrubbing & hot water to remove it. I've tried 2 different types of powder, the 1st I had been using for over 3 years with no previous problems. Any thoughts?

The plastic recessed door handle on our Smeg Model PL823X Type 11053 has suddenly cracked and broken away with normal handling which makes it difficult to open the door.

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

Indesit d63 dishwasher, door locked shut. took top off+got to latch, the plastic catch wouldn't pull out of the latch. undid it all, all seems unbroken but cannot seem to arrange the latch so that it will allow the plastic catch to come out when levered. also not sure if the handle is supposed to click the switch to another position, or just tweak the switch as it opens the door. is a new latch supplied with the switch ?


Check with whoever you order the latch from, usually parts are individual for electrical parts and never assume that the screw or washer will come with new one, save every piece. ... Indesit 24 in. D63 Free-standing Dishwasher

I have a KitchenAid Model KUDP01FLBT5. After I push one of the clean buttons, and the start button and close it, nothing happens. The indicator lights for the buttons come on as you push them. When this first started, you would ahve to open and close the door and re-set the buttons (not sure if that button re-setting had anything to do with it) up to 20 or 30 times, and it would eventually come on. Now it won't anymore. Help!
