Control panel buttons don't work. Seem to be stuck in the "Lock On" mode. Can't turn off, and dishwasher won't run. When you open the door all lights go off, but as soon as you relatch the door, the "Lock On" light comes on, although sometimes it can be another light. In any case, it won't run.

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 ?


Check with whoever you order the latch from, usually parts are individual for electrical parts and never assume that the screw or washer will come with new one, save every piece. ... Indesit 24 in. D63 Free-standing Dishwasher

I have a magtag quiet 100 series that has a broken handle but still shuts tight and seems to lock yet. Problem seems to be that the rinse only light will stay on for quite a long time and won't let me hit the wash button. When the rinse only light does go off, if I hit the wash button it starts but then switches to rinse only. Sometimes I can get lucky and get it to stay on wash after the rinse button is off for some time. Any suggestions?

Our Ikea Nutid Whirlpool dishwasher locked up recently. It started when someone was wiping off the top of the door where the control buttons are located. The dishwasher was locked on the china setting. Holding the cancel button, shutting off the breaker did not seem to clear it. Is there a way to reset the dishwasher? There was flashing on buttons but I cannot remember how many flashes or what one was flashing.

I just purchased and installed an Haier ESD 210 dishwasher. Everything seems to work fine except the machine will not shut off. Also, after selecting the "wash program" the LED blinks continually during all cycles. It takes some effort to latch the door but it does lock. Can you help? Thank you.

Dishwasher malfunction MOST OF THE TIME it shuts itself down before fully filling with water - SOMETIMES it doesn't shut down until the minute the wash pump starts - SOMETIMES it washes for 10 or 20 minutes before shutting down - SOMETIMES it will even run a whole cycle, BUT it doesn't open the soap dispenser door - tried doing a diagnostic run but after it turned on all the lights on the panel it started to fill with water and shut itself down.........

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers

I just bought this house with this dishwasher built in. I have pushed the door shut, pressed the heat dry button to lock the door and pressed the start button. Nothing happens. Now I can't even get the lights on front to turn off. The lock button flashes as though the door is open, but its not as far as I can tell. I have to press the latch in to open the door. I'd like to use it... any ideas. Its a Kenmore Elite model # 665 17052 402. Thank You

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so. The electronics work fine, the racks fit fine (we also removed them, and the door still won't close), and nothing appear

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.

We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, several years old. The lock light went on yesterday and we could not put it on wash or anything. We hit cancel, unplugged the machine, left the door open so it would stop the cycle...nothing worked. How do you get the lock off when it goes on like that? I just went into the kitchen, shut the door and the lock was off, strange.


There is a key (usually the dry key) that needs to be held for 4 seconds to turn the child lock on or off. If it comes on again try holding this key for 4 seconds.If it was pressed and held by mistake this could cause the lock to activate ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a Bosch SMU2046Uc/14 about 15 years old. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, for the last couple of months. Now it has stopped working completely as if no power. Checked the breaker. Another problem - one of our kids just today jammed the door lock on it and we cannot get the door to latch at all. Can you help with any one of these problems? How do you fix or reset the door latch??? What else can we check to troubleshoot the dishwasher? Thanks!

My GE dishwasher's door is stuck shut ~ I'm assuming a broken latch. I was told to fix the latch, the dishwasher has to be taken out from under the counter top (in order to get the door open). My problem is: with the dishwasher door stuck shut, it's impossible to unscrew the dishwasher from the countertop... Any helpful hints? Pleeeeeeeease (all of my silverware is stuck INSIDE the locked dishwasher - LOL!)


Well I'll try to help you get this opened. I don't know how much space you have at the top side edge of the dishwasher.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on. The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers
