Having problems with your KitchenAid 34 in. KUDV24SE Built-in Dishwasher ?

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.


Answers :

Looks like a very tight spot to be in. Your best bet is to get the toe panel off (item 8) in this diagram. and then carefully release the springs (item 6) on each side with a nose plier.

\015\012This should free up the door at the bottom. If not, then try to drop the levelling screws (item 16) in this diagram. and see if that allow you drag the dishwasher out from under the bench.

Whirlpool ADG993, door fault: Hi, a few weeks ago soemthing broke on the door to my diswasher and it falls open wide with no stopping half way as usual. That was fine as the machine could still work, but now the door won't close. All seems fine until you get all but closed and then the door raises slightly from the bottom right corner, preventing it from closing. It looks like something may be jammed in there which pushes the door up at the last minute. There's a man coming out on Friday,

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. Sometimes I open the machine and the door is open, but the powder tab has not fallen into the machine. Any solutions to this?
