The door release bar on our KitchenAid KUDV24SE is hanging loose and so the door won't open. According to the installation booklet, the dishwasher should be attached to the floor or countertop to prevent it falling over when the door is opened, so I can't pull it away from the counter for better access. How do I open the door from the front? Thanks.

I have a Zanussi ZSF 2420. Every other wash or so the door for the powder does not open. If I actually open the dishwasher to check, sometimes it opens then and the washing powder tab falls out.

I have a bosch dishwasher model number SGS0902GB/05. I use tablets instead of detergent. I put the tablet in the Dispenser and close the lid, noproblem.

My dishwasher SMS 448 works up to the point in the cycle when the dispenser is supposed to dislodge the Powerball detergent. It doesn't, and the machine stops. If I open the door and click the dispenser, the Powerball falls into the dishwasher unit itself. But when I close the door, the machine doesn't operate until I turn the knob a bit farther on in the cycle. Then, no water comes out, but the knob moves on in the cycle and the heating pipes heat up

The door has always made a horrible noise that I could not get to go away (I shot some WD40 into all available places). I learned to live with the noise. NOW, the spring on the door has obviously broken. I am afraid someone will open the dishwasher and hurt a small child with the falling door! I see where you addressed the broken spring problem. Do you think I could fix the horrible noise at the same time? Do you think this is something my husband could fix?

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

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way. The question remains, though, why is there solidified powder remaining in the dishwasher after the complete dishwasher cycle has finished? Tabs work well, as the tab falls out, but all the powder doesn't seem to. Electrosol powder is less expen
