Washing powder door broken

\015 The latch on the powder door does not work it is always in the open position - the latch can be pulled out of its socket.\015\012\015\012If anyone knows whether this can be fixed without a repair man please let me know. As i live in a shared house we are unlikely to call a repair man out to fix it and would like to try and fix it ourselves.\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012Ady\015

Answers :

The door is usually opened by a solenoid that is actuated by the timer. Sometimes, the solenoid becomes stuck in the open position. If so, you may be able to see the opening. You can try banging on the door near the latch with something relatively soft sometimes to free it but usually the door must be disassembled to repair it if it's an electrical failure.

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?

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

Hi, I'm working on a KUDI02FRSS0 for my neighbor. She complained the door flew open one day during a wash and the door had been very heavy since. A quick check on the internet, and I thought it would be simple... I installed an 8194001 balance kit. Both cords had broken. However, the door was very hard to close, and once you did close it, it would tend to pop open by itself shortly thereafter. When the door popped open, thanks to the new balance kit, it would not fly open as it had p

Hi, we have a Hoover HEDS668-80 dishwasher at work. The first problem we had was none of the programs would run this turned out to be a broken door lock. After replacement we managed to get one pre wash and one wash program to run, now when we try it, it starts but after 2 minutes the pre-wash and wash lights flash and the machine beeps 8 times. Can anyone help?

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

Whirlpool adp8540 - goes throught the wash cycle without the soap door opening, the water gets into the soap box, and the powder or tablet (I've tried all the brands) are wet but remain in the soap box. When I flick the level on the soap box, works just fine, just doesn't happen during the wash cycle.


Normally, the dispenser is waterproof when closed, so the detergent should not get wet. Most likely the actuator of the dispenser works and does open the door, but something is blocking it from opening all the way. Look for stuff not it its place, ie ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Maytag MDB 8600 AWB dishwasher Wouldn''t start... just a Heated Dry light. Replaced (already broken) door handle with complete latch assembly. Still, Heated Dry flashes. Tried various suggested combos of 5 or 6 quick button pushes followed by Start. Only get a 50-=countdown that repeats endlessly. Sometimes alternates with the letter L. Once by luck I guess it went into Heavy Wash mode, or at least the diagnostic for it. Completed this fine, then back to the stubborn Heated Dry light.

My brandt VF300 doesn't drain at the end of wash cycles. If you run the soak programme it drains fine. Some time ago the door was adjusted by an engineer, when he arrived he pressed some buttons which then drained the unit immediately, I have forgotten which buttons! Is there anything I can do to reset the thing, given it drains on soak I am doubtful the drain pump has broken ir is blocked?
