Having problems with your Hoover 24 in. DT999 Free-Standing Dishwasher ?

How do I fit a new door gasket to a Hoover DT999 dishwasher (the short horizontal seal at the bottom of the door, not the longer one which wraps around the inside of the body of the machine)?


Answers :

Well I just did this (ew!)

basically it just pulls out of a slot downwards (when doors open) but there's not much space so I took out a few screws to free the door up a bit.

So - sitting with the machine in front of you and door open down towards you:

I took out the two machine screws that hold the door on to the spring/hinge mechanism. Those are the two on the side of the door near to the hinge/bottom.
I also took out 3 of the screws that screw the inside metal bit of the door on to the plastic fron of the door.

You'll notice that the springs then force the inside and outside of the door apart and you've got some free space to pull the bottom seal out of the metal door. Then clean everything and squeeze the new seal in.

You're probably not going to be able to thread it in from one end.

When you're putting those two machine screws back in you'll probably need to do the top screw (nearest you when door open) with the door almost closed so that the spring is most relaxed and will let you line up the two holes.

Hope that helps

GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray. I have to open the machine and add the soap to the bottom of the machine if I want to get my di

When opening the door to my Kitchenaid Superba dishwasher, I heard a loud noise inside the machine. The door slammed open. Now, it opens, closes, and latches; however, the spring-assist that slows the opening no longer works, and the heavy door, when unlatched to open, swings freely and quickly down.

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDS01FLSS2. I finished replacing the door balancer cord and started the dw up and it started leaking underneath from the bottom somewhere around the middle of the unit.

Door leak I have a small leak between the bottom of the dishwasher door the lower service panel on the dishwashere.

Hi _ We have a Stoves DW616 dishwasher which has started leaking water on filling from around the front door. The BGas engineer replaced the seals around the door with those from a Hygena which he said were the same and it worked fine for a few days and then a further deluge. He has now said there is a seal at the base of the door (just about invisible) and although he got a further Hygena seal this would not fit and he says that as it's obsolete the machine should be written off.

There is always condensation on the inside of the door and some water on the floor of the machine after washing. The main thing is the foul odor that is inside the machine after a day of sitting with dishes in it. I have checked for obstructions and there are none visible and I have washed the little basket. Nothing advised in the manuel seems to help, although the odor problem is not mentioned in the manuel. I HATE THIS DISHWASHER! I wish I had my former, much less expensive Maytag back.

I have a 7 year old Kenmore 24" (mod. 16532201) built-in dishwasher. For the past several months now I have noticed a dark almost greasy film covering the inside of the dishwasher after doing a load of dishes. It can also be found around the soap dispenser door, basically everywhere. I'm wondering if the black rubber around the inside front of the dishwasher is deteriorating. It doesn't appear to be damaged or cracked. I have tried "Finish" dishwashing cleaner several times, but to no avail

I have a Bauknecht dishwasher GS 835 S purchased in 1986. Since moving it while having kitchen refit there are two small leaks. One is from the hose that goes into the bottom of the machine towards the front, and the other is a drip that comes down between the front facia panel and the machine door.

The door would not shut. We checked all around and nothing was blocking the door from shutting. We determined the latch on the door was not releasing. I forced the door shut. The touchpad works...lights come on but unit will not operate. The release handle on the front just wiggles back and forth without effect. Lowes says it is one of three parts...none returnable.

Code F2 I just replaced the door switch on an inoperable DD-602. My top drawer was working fine, but my bottom one has been offline for a while (door switch failed and I never got around to fixing it since I had the top). Well, my top finally failed too so I replaced both switches. Looks like everything is good on the top, but my bottom is erroring with an F2 code now. Kindof makes a thumping noise as it starts the cycle -- maybe 3-5 short thumps and then a 10 second delay, repeats. Any ideas? C
