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!!!!

The door won't close. The latch seems jammed. I have tried setting and releasing the child lock inside the handle. The problem seems to be with the latch itself. From inside the door, I can see the tongue the clips into the latch, but it seems stuck. I can't get it to move, even with gentle force.

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

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?

Even after ensuring that really hot water is coming from the faucet and placing the unit on the Delicate/Econo setting we consistently get a 2 HR reading. We have also had it where the unit gets stuck on Cycle 1 and we have to reset to go to CL and clear the system of its waste water. Is this a mechanical issue or a circuit board issue.
