Dishwashers\012are supposed to make life easier. But when they are not working\012properly, they can make life aggravating. Buying a new dishwasher or\012hiring a repair person can cost hundreds of dollars. With the proper\012know-how, anyone can fix most dishwasher problems and save money. One\012of the most common problems is a malfunctioning door latch.

Indesit d63 dishwasher, door locked shut. took top off+got to latch, the plastic catch wouldn't pull out of the latch. undid it all, all seems unbroken but cannot seem to arrange the latch so that it will allow the plastic catch to come out when levered. also not sure if the handle is supposed to click the switch to another position, or just tweak the switch as it opens the door. is a new latch supplied with the switch ?

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

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.

If so, what is involved in the repair?

My dishwasher is not working properly, i have cleaned all the filters and spray arms, but still have food partials all over dishes. I did use a knife to hold down door latch so i could see what was happening when the dishwasher is working. Water does come out of the spray arms but they don't move and the dishwasher is empty, also now the latch won't catch since i used the knife.
