Hi, we are trying to install our new Bosch dishwasher model: SMU68M05AU. I am surprised to see packing foam and flimsy edging across the top edge that meets up to the stainless steel door edge when its closed. I can not find detailed installation instructions. Is there not a strip that goes across the top to meet the door as the top looks very ugly? The dishwasher door protrudes from the under bench cupboard space so the top part is in view and exposed.

I have a Frigidaire FDB2410LDC3 Dishwasher. It was working great until my 5 year old fell on the door and it does not spring back up now. I tried looking with a flashlight in the sides and the springs may be OK. What is most mystifying about this is something has gone wrong with the part your hand uses to close and open it. The latch is limp so I wonder if there was some other spring in there that broke in the incident. Now after some time of forcing it to shut (due to that pesky latch that

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!!!!

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

Latch wires I am trying to install a new latch and can not seem to get the diswasher to operate. I need to know the connections for the latch. I did not tag them when I took the old latch out (duh).

Kude48fxbl - brand new out-of-the-box. When put through a test cycle after installing it, water poured out of the bottom left edge of the door. This was not associated with either the water input or the discharge hose, but rather seemed to come from the interior of the washer and out under the door. The door seemed well latched, and running it with some dishes in the bottom tray (not blocking the soap dispenser) didn't help.

We have a Whirlpool mod# DU1055XTVD0 dishwasher .. the blue latch designed to keep the lid to the detergent dispenser closed after filling has come loose from the inside door panel and now will not stay in place to keep the detergent lid shut. We did find a small o-ring in the bottom of the tub that apparently is part of what helps maybe hold this latch in place, but obviously there must be something else that fits inside the hole the latch goes in that keeps it secure.

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I

For the Kitchenaid model#kudso1flbl2 type 5770, the door will drop like a rock, if not supported. Does this sound like it requires a spring? Is there a way to fish out or reattach the old opring? How hard is it to install a new spring? Thanks Jeremy.


Very easy, take out the two screws from the counter that hold the unit inplace and only pull it out a few inches, then you can angle it a little and get to the spring.

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?

Have a Kenmore dishwasher #665.1677993, approx. 13 years old. Upon starting new cycle the pump turns on for a few short seconds, then off, then after a couple minutes it goes on again for a few seconds then off, then later in the cycle it does stay on for a longer period of time. In conjuntion with this intermitent problem it has begun leaking out the bottom of the front door. I have checked drain line, check valve, strainer/screen and vent in the door. I assume it is an electrical issue?

Hi there,\015\012\015\012The long cycle times indicate a fault in either the water heater circuits or the timer. \015\012\015\012I'm assuming from the model number you are in the US and therefore on a 120v supply. The heater i ... Bosch SHU9955UC Built-in Dishwasher

Detergent dispenser will not stay shut so the soap power falls out before washing starts. Last time use I opened the door by mistake part way through the cycle. Could this have messed up the latch release mechanism? Thanks, slice10sheep


Opening the door did not affect the latch on the dispenser. The catch does wear out and can be replaced. This involves disassembling the door and a small jigsaw puzzle of springs and levers. If you are attempting I would advise taking pictures to ref ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My Amana ADB1500AWW3 Dishwasher won't allow me to change cycles. I used the quick cycle as I was going out of town.
