Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Latch on my Kenmore dishwasher model# 363.14582100 won't close

\015 The latch will not close all the way on the door, preventing me from turning on the dishwasher. Afraid to take the door apart...what should I do?\015

Answers :

Sharon,
The "latch keeper" has gotten out of alignment. You'll need to adjust it.
All you'll need is a phillips screwdriver to fix this. Open the door and look at the "latch keeper" (it's not on the door, but on the frame). It's the thing that the door lock/latch grabs on to when you try to lock the door. There are 2 screws holding it in place. Loosen these, pull the keeper toward you a bit and tighten the screws to lock it in. Now try your door.
This may take several attempts to get it just right, because you want the door closing tight enough so as not to allow a water leak and loose enough for you to close it easily.
If you have any questions, post back and I'll try to explain in better detail.

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed.

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

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

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.

I purchased my Kenmore Elite dishwasher, model # 8542514, in 2003 & replaced the control board in 2006. Recently, I accidently opened the dishwasher during a wash cycle, but it continued working once I closed it. It seemed to work fine for a few more weeks. Now, however, I get nothing--no lights....just doesn't start up. I tried pressing all the code solutions listed on this site, but no luck so far. It seems to me that the control board/panel should last more than 3-4 years.

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something
