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

The handle opener on my my Kitchenaid whisperquiet dishwasher is completely loose and I can't open the dishwasher to remove my clean dishes. What can I do???


Answers :

The idea is to lift up on the part of the latch that is fixed to the body of the washer. The door part of the latch slides under this peice. If the handle mechanism is broken, it will not depres the door part of the latch to allow it to open. therefore, we have to pickup the latch part fixed to the body.
\015\012
\015\012To get the door open, take a clothes hanger and cut off a 12" peice with a pair of pliers. Bend the last 1.25" at 90 degress angle. Make another bend about 4 " from that to make another 90 degree angle. This will give you leverage. Insert the first bent end between the top of the door and the counter. Rotate it so that the end is facing down. Feel for a metal plate. When you hit the plate with the probe, turn your hanger so that it lifts up the plate and simultaneously pull on the door handle. The door should come open.
\015\012
\015\012Now you have to get the handle repaired, but at least you know how to open the door.
I had the exact same problem. The plastic latch handle inside the door probably broke and needs to be replaced. Part no is 9743903, 4, 5, or 6 (blk, wht, almond, or biscuit).
\015\012
\015\012Pull the dishwasher out about 3-5 inches and find the metal tab, about 1" wide, in the top middle going into the door. Use a flathead screwdriver to lift this tab up slightly, releasing the door.

My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, Model SHE46C06UC. No mater what cycle I start it in, it simply activates the drain and continues to run without ever starting. Within the last week prior to the dishwasher not working, I noticed a low hum/vibration emitting from the dishwasher. I've clean out the screen and drain filter, removed the pump cover to check for any debris. I've manually added water and it does drain. Additionally, the drain cycle continues to operate even with the door open.


First thing you may want to check is the door switch. You can pull it off and measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. If you get good reading while pushed in and none while switch button is released, then it is a good start. Next, you may want ... Dishwashers

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 GE dishwasher with the following model number: GSD3230F00WW. Last night, while the dishwasher was in the clean cycle, a buzzing/grinding sound came from underneath the dishwasher. I removed the access panel to try to isolate the sound. It appeared to come from a solenoid that was connected to an arm that opened and closed something. I am not sure if the solenoid is bad or if there was something that was preventing it from operating properly. I moved the arm to which it was connected

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno
