Having problems with your GE Dishwashers ?

The door falls - GE Dishwashers


Answers :

There are springs attached to the hinges and it is likely the one has broken.

I suggest that you take off the back of the door and check. Buy yourself replacement springs (replace both, because the one that is still OK is likely to break soon) and replace the old springs.

My dishwasher SMS 448 works up to the point in the cycle when the dispenser is supposed to dislodge the Powerball detergent. It doesn't, and the machine stops. If I open the door and click the dispenser, the Powerball falls into the dishwasher unit itself. But when I close the door, the machine doesn't operate until I turn the knob a bit farther on in the cycle. Then, no water comes out, but the knob moves on in the cycle and the heating pipes heat up

I have a bosch dishwasher model number SGS0902GB/05. I use tablets instead of detergent. I put the tablet in the Dispenser and close the lid, noproblem. I then set the programme and shut the door, I usually set the programme to delay start so that it washes dishes in the small hours when all are in bed, however, when I have set the programme and close the door within a minute the dispenser assembly opens and the tablet falls into the dishwasher, I then try and put the tablet back in the dispe

The door release bar on our KitchenAid KUDV24SE is hanging loose and so the door won't open. According to the installation booklet, the dishwasher should be attached to the floor or countertop to prevent it falling over when the door is opened, so I can't pull it away from the counter for better access. How do I open the door from the front? Thanks.

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!

The door has always made a horrible noise that I could not get to go away (I shot some WD40 into all available places). I learned to live with the noise. NOW, the spring on the door has obviously broken. I am afraid someone will open the dishwasher and hurt a small child with the falling door! I see where you addressed the broken spring problem. Do you think I could fix the horrible noise at the same time? Do you think this is something my husband could fix?

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way. The question remains, though, why is there solidified powder remaining in the dishwasher after the complete dishwasher cycle has finished? Tabs work well, as the tab falls out, but all the powder doesn't seem to. Electrosol powder is less expen

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door
