Having problems with your KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS25SH Built-in Dishwasher ?

My Kitchenaid KUDV24SE is locked closed and I can not get it open. It feels like the handle is broken and disengaged from the locking mechanism. How can I override and get the door open??


Answers :

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with if the door lock is stuck and wont unlock then you can pry it to open, and just don’t try too hard. The issue can be with the door latch that is stuck, to unlock it you can stick a flat screw driver behind the door latch and then lever it to open so that you don’t have to pry it to open. Once it’s done, please make sure to replace the door latch assembly to avoid any further issues. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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

I just bought this house with this dishwasher built in. I have pushed the door shut, pressed the heat dry button to lock the door and pressed the start button. Nothing happens. Now I can't even get the lights on front to turn off. The lock button flashes as though the door is open, but its not as far as I can tell. I have to press the latch in to open the door. I'd like to use it... any ideas. Its a Kenmore Elite model # 665 17052 402. Thank You

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, several years old. The lock light went on yesterday and we could not put it on wash or anything. We hit cancel, unplugged the machine, left the door open so it would stop the cycle...nothing worked. How do you get the lock off when it goes on like that? I just went into the kitchen, shut the door and the lock was off, strange.


There is a key (usually the dry key) that needs to be held for 4 seconds to turn the child lock on or off. If it comes on again try holding this key for 4 seconds.If it was pressed and held by mistake this could cause the lock to activate ... Kenmore Dishwashers

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?
