Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

My husband removed the inner panel from the dishwasher door to see why the "door open" light was on after he changed the front panel from white to black. He shut the door without the inner panel and now we cannot open the dishwasher!

\015\012The trick would be to drag the dishwasher out from under the counter and open the foot plate and the spring assembly. Hopefully you may be able to lift the door from the bottom hinge and release the tounge of the door latch.

Whirlpool DU980QPDQ3: As per FixYa solution, I was successful in removing the inner panel of my dishwasher door in order to clean it. Since reinstalling the inner door panel, including the cover and drawbar for the detergent dispenser latch, the dispenser door will not open during the wash cycle. I have checked everything and cannot figure out what is wrong. I have only been able to locate disassembly instructions, but not the detailed assembly instructions that I need to get the dispenser do

Continuous alarm after a power failure an alarm started going off in the door of the dishwasher. the push button panel is not functioning. I opened the door panel and found an electronic control circuit board. It is this board that is making the noise. I unplugged the black and white pair of wires on the lower right side of the board and the noise stopped. this must supply power to board. Anyone know what this problem is?


I posted this under "Ben's" problem as well, but I had the exact same problem. I know which black and white wires you're talking about. I don't know what causes this, but getting new parts did fix it. The black box that all those wires go into on ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher

Our Amana ADB1500AWW dishwasher leaks at far left and far right edges ( at bottom points) of the inside door panel due to a design flaw. ie - In the fully open position ( door in horizontal position) the far left and far right edges (at bottom) of inside plastic door panel are stressed beyond what the plastic can withstand consequently the edges of the panel crack as far as 3 inches from edge to inside. This crack is very small and cannot be seen until the panel is removed and then full insp

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on? Dishwasher came with the house when we purchased it 6 years ago. Proba

I have shut the circuit breaker off to keep from burning up the pump. Problem continues if I reset circuit breaker.

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.........

Have a 4 year old Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 74382. No problems at all until last week I went to start it and it would not turn on. Lights on the control panel were on with exception to the start light. I opened and shut the door to make sure it clicked and pressed the start button again and nothing. I tapped around the panel with the side of my fist and pressed it again and it began working. Well today different story I went to start it and it did the same thing. I tapped all over front of the

Miele G842SC - opened the door while the dishwasher was running, the washer kept running and when I shut the door it stopped working. I have un-plugged the power and tryed to re-start but no luck. The Canada center says it is going to be 2 week for a repair and I have to wait to the day of to find out when the repair person is going to be there. I cannot believe the lack of service and support for this product.

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'm installing an electrolux dishwasher, the first thing I'm going to do is the electric wire. I know I have to attach the black white and green (ground wire).I've done this before with my Maytag and it was a breeze.

Maytag MDBH965AWQ I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDBH965AWQ. A few weeks ago the clean and sanitized lights would not go off after the door had been left open for over 30 seconds.

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. 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

BOSCH Dishwasher model: SHE44C (or 46C). I opened door in middle of cycle. Went back several hours later to unload and discovered it had not completed cycle and failed to drain.

Dishwasher keeps stopping, halway thro cycle, or at anytime during cycle, it will start back up if door is opened and shut, or if front panel is tapped


It's almost definitely a loose connection in the wiring to the cut-off switch in the door catch or to the control panel. Vibration from the machine during operation is probably causing it to lose contact, and when you tap the panel or close the door ... Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works.
