\015 The door is stuck. The latch appears stuck and will not release and open.\015

Answers :

If you look carefully near/under the latch, you will probably see some screws that holds the latch handle on. As you remove those screws, it will probably be obvious how to get the door open.

If you post the manufacturer and model number back here, I can be more helpful. OK?

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.


Hi,\015\012 Lowes is right regarding the parts needed.\015\012\015\012First check the strike part is ok - that's on the body of the machine not the door.\015\012\015\012Unplug the machine.\015\012\015\012Remo ... Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher

The door won't close. The latch seems jammed. I have tried setting and releasing the child lock inside the handle. The problem seems to be with the latch itself. From inside the door, I can see the tongue the clips into the latch, but it seems stuck. I can't get it to move, even with gentle force.

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

Detergent dispenser will not stay shut so the soap power falls out before washing starts. Last time use I opened the door by mistake part way through the cycle. Could this have messed up the latch release mechanism? Thanks, slice10sheep


Opening the door did not affect the latch on the dispenser. The catch does wear out and can be replaced. This involves disassembling the door and a small jigsaw puzzle of springs and levers. If you are attempting I would advise taking pictures to ref ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a Magtag dishwasher, model #MDB6650AWQ thats not running. I check the power supply all the way up to the door latch and it shows that there's power there. However the circuit panel not lighting up and nothing happens when you push the normal wash cycle or any of the other buttons. I believe the problems is electrical in the door latch handle. Is there any way to check the solenoids which are attached to the door handle before I order a new door latch.
