I have a stainless steel Kitchenaid dishwasher and the door drops hard when I open it instead of requiring you to push it down if you want to open it fully. Seems like a spring is broken. Any ideas?

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?

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

There are 2 white and 2 black and 6 different prongs so I am not sure which way to plug them in to make it work properly. It worked fine before it got stuck closed and wouldn't open, that's why we ordered the whole assembly. The way I have it wired it sounds like its working...water goes in and drains put but the

I have a Frigidaire FDB2410LDC3 Dishwasher. It was working great until my 5 year old fell on the door and it does not spring back up now. I tried looking with a flashlight in the sides and the springs may be OK. What is most mystifying about this is something has gone wrong with the part your hand uses to close and open it. The latch is limp so I wonder if there was some other spring in there that broke in the incident. Now after some time of forcing it to shut (due to that pesky latch that

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!)

You need a long stiff rod like a metal clothes hanger straightened so it can reach from the side to a little past the dishwasher m ... GE Profile PDW9880NSS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

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

Drawers Stuck I've had my dishwasher for a couple of years now. All of the sudden the drawers are extremely difficult to open. I have to use all my strength to pry open the drawers so I can get the dishes out.  It started out as only the bottom drawer having the problem and now both drawers are having it.  It seems to be running fine because the dishes that were in the drawer before it got stuck were cleaned.  And there is nothing blocking the drawer from opening.  It seems like the seal that c

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!!!!

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.

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

I have an Optima series G1470 or G2470 dishwasher with a heavy panel on the front to match the kitchen cabinets. I want to tighten the door spring so I can open it more gently. House guests tend to let go of the door part way down and it bangs open the rest of the way. Also, I have not put salt in. Do I need to in Wisconsin? If so, what kind of salt do I use? Thanks, MJ
