Answers :

There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. \015\0121) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
\015\0122) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.

I have a bosch SHU8815UC dishwasher. It was already installed when i moved into my apartment - so I'm unsure of the age. The dishwasher isn't functioning.

One time I closed the door, it started to rev up but would shut off and beep three times after about 1 min. No water comes out. Any ideas? Thanks! June

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

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit.

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so.

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.

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something

Have unplugged and left overnight, plugged back in, beeping continues.

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.
