Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

The door on the dishwasher squeaks terribly. How can this be corrected?


Answers :

If your dishwasher door squeaks you have to check the following:

Latch
The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.
If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.

Springs
Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs.

Hinges
The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough.

Door seal
If your dishwasher is new or if you have just replaced a door seal the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

When we open the dishwasher door, it produces a very loud metalicsqueeking sound- like something is rubbing or binding. The door is not catching on anything externally, and there doesn't seem to be resistance to opening or closing. I have lubricated all the external parts- pully, cable, etc, with silicon spray, but the sound continues. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location- obviously at the bottom of door. What must I do to correct the squeeky noise? Thanks for your help!

Dishwasher (Whirlpool Model DU930PWQ0) won't pump out. Problem occurred after door was opened during a cycle. Then the pump-out function ceased to work. Washer fills and pumps correctly during the wash cycle. Any suggestions? My guess is that the electronic control may be faulty and it is not opening the solenoid valve for the drain cycle. The other option I have thought of is that the solenoid valve may be faulty and is not responding to the signal from the controller. The dishwasher is n
