Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

We have kitchen aid dishwasher model KUDS01FLBL2. The door now opens too easily as if a spring is no longer in operation. I think I found a part called a door balance spring. Is this something I can fix myself?

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012You need to order pulley assembly; it comes in pairs (both doors). Open the bottom panel, undo the screws on top (exposed only when door opens), slide out the dishwasher from its place (you might have to undo the water and drain fittings depending upon how much slack or lack of it). Unhook the spring from the old pulley. Remove and replace the pulley, hook the spring back and perform the above steps in reverse.

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?

Opened the door of a kenmore elite 66516493300 and heard a loud bang. Then the doo fell open hard. Now when I open the door it wants to fall straight down fast. I see no springs in the parts list but assume that something counterbalances the door. Do you know what's srong and can I fix it myself? Thank you, Peter M. Bonadio

The door would not shut. We checked all around and nothing was blocking the door from shutting. We determined the latch on the door was not releasing. I forced the door shut. The touchpad works...lights come on but unit will not operate. The release handle on the front just wiggles back and forth without effect. Lowes says it is one of three parts...none returnable. Any thoughts on what part and whether this is something average consumer can self fix? Thanks.

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed.

I have a Frigidaire FDB2410LDC3 Dishwasher. It was working great until my 5 year old fell on the door and it does not spring back up now. I tried looking with a flashlight in the sides and the springs may be OK. What is most mystifying about this is something has gone wrong with the part your hand uses to close and open it. The latch is limp so I wonder if there was some other spring in there that broke in the incident. Now after some time of forcing it to shut (due to that pesky latch that

My Maytag MDBH965AWW Legacy Series 300 is making a loud grinding noise. I took off the lower spray arm and other parts below it to see if something was lodged near the chopper blade. What I found was broken plastic pieces from the bottom of the filter/flowplate assembly. It appears that the chopper blade is coming in contact with the filter/flowplate assembly and therefore the chopper blade is chopping away at the bottom of the filter/flowplate assembly. What do you think the problem is? Ho

It appears that water is not running through the dishwasher or that the sprayers are not working correctly. There doesn't appear to be a clog. However, I did find a round rubber "washer" (I think that is what they are called) laying in the bottom of the dishwasher - where does this part go. It was working fine until this wash. The heating element works fine but like I said it appears that something may be wrong with the spray tower. Please advise Model number of Hotpoint: HDA3420Z01BB T

I'm not very mechanically inclined, and the spring broke on our Haier Model ESD 302 dishwasher. Is this something that I can do myself?
