Having problems with your Asko D1716 Built-in Dishwasher ?

The door won't open .. The safty latch is not engaged


Answers :

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012Welcome to FixYa.
\015\012
\015\012Based on your post I suspect the latch or catch/strike itself may have broken while in the closed position. Obviously to investigate the door will need to be opened.
\015\012
\015\012This can be serious problem since Asko isn't like your average domestic dishwasher and opening this will be very tricky...even for experienced techs.
\015\012
\015\012If you feel you can try it I'll try to guide you, but I will say I recommend calling in a pro familiar with Asko dishwashers/appliances.
\015\012
\015\012Having said that, here's what I do to get it opened, if indeed it is a D1716 Asko and you are absolutely certain the safety isn't engaged.
\015\012
\015\012UNLOCKED ( NORMAL POSITION )

\015\012
\015\012LOCKED
\015\012
\015\012macmarkus_254.jpg\015\012
\015\012You'll need to turn the breaker/power off...safety first.
\015\012
\015\012Now with the aid of a metal coat hanger you'll need to try and wrap the hanger around the strike/lock latch where it enters the panel and while pulling up on the latch via the hanger pull on the door to open.

\015\012Let me know how you fair to this point and we'll see how we can proceed. As I alluded to, the first step is getting the door open before moving forward.
\015\012
\015\012This is commonly what happens with what is often associated with the problem you're faced with...and Asko's fix for it.

\015\012I'll watch your post and try and help you move forward in any manner I can. Good luck.

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

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.
