I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

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.

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.

Make sure nothing is blocking the latch or the door. ... Kenmore 24 in. 16539 Built-in Dishwasher

The latch won't engage, so the door won't close. Obviously, this means the machine won't operate. We have removed the racks, checked the hinges to see if anything is lodged there and looked to see if anything is in the unit preventing the door from closing. Could the latch be broken? If so, what is involved in the repair?

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

Door won't stay up or stay closed. The door used to be pulled in so it would stay closed and remain latched. Now it slams downward when you open it and won't remain latched when you want it to run. Some kind of counterweight seems to have disconnected.
