Having problems with your Kenmore 18 in. 14432 / 14439 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Door won't close

\015 Kenmore dishwasher. All of a sudden, I keep pushing the door but the latch won't click it shut.Therefore the machine won't run. I need to know how to open the inside panel so that I can fix the latch.\015

Answers :

First see if under the counter it a metal catch sticking out and make sure it is lined up to go into the hole in the door. if it is then look in the hole on the door and if you see a small white piece sticking up you may be able to stick a screw driver in to push it back in place. .if not then you have to take all the torx screw out of the door panel at the top i believe its either 6 or 8 screws then try and pull the panel off.. if it doesnt come off then you will need to take the las 4 torx screw out and seperate the inner door panel from the outer door panel and you will see everything you need. let me know if you need any clarification.
