Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

Kitchenaid dishwasher 8573025 door no longer holds itself open. It falls all the way open when unlatched.

\015 While opening the dishwasher last week, I heard a loud "PANG", and the door lost its hinge tension, falling open all the way. Model 8573025. Door has always been stiff. We have to sort of "fling" it open to get the door down far enough to push it all the way flat so the racks can be rolled out. Now, we unlatch it and it falls open, scraping our shins if we don't leap back quickly enough. Any idea if this is fixable by us?\012Thanks so much!\015

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way. The question remains, though, why is there solidified powder remaining in the dishwasher after the complete dishwasher cycle has finished? Tabs work well, as the tab falls out, but all the powder doesn't seem to. Electrosol powder is less expen

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 an Optima series G1470 or G2470 dishwasher with a heavy panel on the front to match the kitchen cabinets. I want to tighten the door spring so I can open it more gently. House guests tend to let go of the door part way down and it bangs open the rest of the way. Also, I have not put salt in. Do I need to in Wisconsin? If so, what kind of salt do I use? Thanks, MJ

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?

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?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on.
