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

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

My 1998 GE dishwasher leaks. Into the floor, now I see stains on the ceiling below. What to check? Door seal is fine. The dishes get washed. Pressure is good to go. No water out of the front of machine, seems to be coming from below. Take panel off and inspect connections? How about line from sink? Is there a site with illustrations or video repair about this specific problem out there? Any help is greatly appreciated...


Check the water connection at the valve to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher only leaks when used then the motor seal is damaged. If leak is constant the the leak is at the supply to the dishwasher from the water supply at the valve\015\012 ... Dishwashers

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

I have a two year old Neff Dishwahster(S5453X1GB).The door is stiff to open after it is opened approx 30 degress and it appears to have dropped slightly.It appears to be the hinges which have either moved or broken although the former appears to be the case as the door fully extends after a bit of a struggle.

My Bosch SHX99A15UC Apexx dishwasher won't drain and continues to cycle (you can hear the motor running, but no water) even with the door open.

I purchased a new dishwasher on 2/22/07 at the Home Depot in Parksburg,Pa. I first had to have it repaired on 4/28/08 for wires stuck to inner door. They repaired two broken wires and added insulation so wires do not stick to the door. The second repair was a little more than two months later. On 7/18/08 they had to install a new motor because the motor locked up. Both times I waited several weeks due to not having money and appliance center being busy. I used J.B Zimmerman in Blue Ball,P

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?

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model SHU9915UC/U11. The spring mechanism on the detergent door cracked, and I bought the part to replace it. I took the front cover off of the dishwasher to determine how to replace it. Two white plastic "things", maybe spacers, fell out. I need 2 things: a) how to gain access to the spring on the detergent door so that I can replace it, and b) how to put the door spacers back on. An exploded parts view would probably help a great deal. Michael J. Orr

I own a Bosch dishwasher that has operated perfectly for about ten years. The model is: SHU9915UC. Now it wont complete the cycle. The undissolved detergent is all over the dishes. After running 4 more complete cycles without any detergent the same undissolved powder detergent remains on the dishes. I have also executed a cancel/drain cycle. The filters are not clogged. I am great at repairing many tools and automotive "stuff" and don't want to call a repair facility. Please help.

Drying problem Hi Our 3-day old LG dishwasher is not able to dry our dishes. After the cycle is finished 2 hours later, I open the door to find that water is everywhere. As if the washer is skipping the dry sequence completely. The "vent" on the inside of the door doesn't seem to have an outlet--why is this a vent if nothing can escape? The owner's manual says to use a rinse aid to help drying. I don't believe in using band-aid's; something else is wrong. Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks,

The latch won't engage, so the door won't close. Obviously, this means the machine won't operate. We have removed the racks, checked the hinges to see if anything is lodged there and looked to see if anything is in the unit preventing the door from closing. Could the latch be broken? If so, what is involved in the repair?

Bosch KGV2620GB/03 Hi, I have a Bosch KGV2620GB/03 fridge freezer (bottom freezer, free-standing, the product listed below isn't right) and the light in the fridge won't switch off when the door closes. Any ideas? I assume it's something to do with the switch that registers the door has closed, but not sure how to fix. It's an electronic control, so there's no temperature wheel/switch inside, and we don't have the user guide (which I also can't find online!). Any help much appreciated. Dan
