Having problems with your Hotpoint 23 in. BFI62 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Hi--The latch for the detergent dispenser won't close. What do you suggest?


Answers :

Usually this is caused by overfilling with detergent and getting the latch gunked up. Remove the assembly and clean it completely and see if this helps. If the spring seems weak or damaged you may want to replace it also.

\015\012For a temporary fix, you can normally manually swing the latch 10-15 degrees then close the dispenser after filling and it will open as normal. Unfortunately it is likely that you will have to do this every time.

\015\012You could try running the dishwasher empty with the tray open once or twice and see if that cleans it out.

Maytag MDB8859AWS, cover latch that's a part of the detergent dispenser came entirely out of the hole that the long spindle on the end of the cover latch fits into it. Does this mean the part's broken? Now the detergent dispenser won't open automatically. I can TRY and close the cover after I put the cover latch's long spindle back in the hole, but something doesn't seem right. Only three months old!

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 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

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
