Having problems with your Asko D1796FI Built-in Dishwasher ?

The door , when opened, offers no resistance and drops freely. is there an ajustment that can prvent this?


Answers :

The counter balance springs have become disconnected, or broken. Remove the inside panel and reconnect, if possible. It should be self evident when you get inside where they attach. The attachment point may have broken off, in which case, you may be able to rig a bolt to fasten the spring to. You may have to replace the door.

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.

The door now drops hard when opening. In the past the door would drop slowly and was "not heavy" . I found a rubber piece on the floor just below the door. It looks like a rectangular washer . I am assuming the rubber piece helped slow down the drop of the door. Is this a correct assumption? Is this an easily repaired problem? Your help would be greatly appreciated

My whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 detergent door will not open during wash cycle. Yes the compartment, springs and door are thoroughly clean. Will not open if I just close the door and remains empty. I'm wondering if perhaps I knocked off some random part that makes it open. So please tell me how darn thing opens and perhaps a pic of the parts so I could see if ones missing. Thank you for any help offered for this, its driving me nuts.

Door dropped Opened door on my FDB421RFR and a loud cracking noise occurred - now the door drops quickly. I guess the spring(s) have broken - does anyone know if the spring is on the rhs looking at the front? I sure hope so, I can probably access that side without pulling the unit out! Is it good to spray these with WD-40 or do they just age anyway?

When we open the dishwasher door, it produces a very loud metalicsqueeking sound- like something is rubbing or binding. The door is not catching on anything externally, and there doesn't seem to be resistance to opening or closing. I have lubricated all the external parts- pully, cable, etc, with silicon spray, but the sound continues. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location- obviously at the bottom of door. What must I do to correct the squeeky noise? Thanks for your help!

The dishwasher detergent is not dissolving. There is rinse aid in the dispenser - sometimes the door opens and the detergent comes out and sometimes it doesn't. If the detergent does come out then it is just sitting in the rack - should it drop to the bottom of the dishwasher? I have checked the door cleaned out around it to make sure the hook and release are working. I opened the door and the water is hot.

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers

Detergent dispenser door Whirlpool DU7400 won't open. I tested 300109 ACTUATOR resistance and it is closed. I ran washer and saw the actuator receives a current several times during the complete wash cycle. How else can I test? I notice the lever on the Acutator is quite floppy. Should it be stiff? Also the dispenser door does pop open if pushed from behind so that seems OK? Does anyone have the actual testing procedure for this problem? Thanks for anyone's help!

Dishwasher is Haier ESD300. I had just started to open the door and heard a loud "pop" kind of sound. The door just falls down with no resistance now. There is a string, yes a string, hanging from the left bottom corner of the door. Of course it went out of warranty 3 weeks ago also!


You'll have to slide the dishwasher out from under the cabinet to get a better look at the hinge cable system and you should be able to look at the other hinge to see what broke. could be the cable itself or the spring or a retainer. You will not kno ... Haier ESD300 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher
