Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher door won't open

\015 Power is on. Have tried switching it off and running through a cycle.\015

Answers :

Hello. Do this. Try opening the door using more force than you did before. If it still will not open, use a small putty knife blade, or a butter knife blade and try to push the catch a wee bit left or right as it is probably out of alignment. Joe

In order to release the latch mechanism you need to either get inside the door or you need to get to the top of the cabinet of the dishwasher. The screws that hold your dishwasher into the cabinet are up under the lip of the cabinet. The door may be in the way of getting a screwdriver in to get the screws out so that you could slide the dishwasher forward to see the latch on top of the case of the dishwasher. You might be able to get a right angel screwdriver into the space between the door and the cabinet and work those screws out. You may have to remove the bottom panel on the dishwasher and screw the legs up a bit in order to pull the dishwasher forward. If you get the dishwasher forward, you may have to disassemble the latch mechanism enough to get the door open. Then comes the problem of figuring out what caused the latch to stick. I hope this will help you resolve your immediate problem.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

I have a whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 and the detergent door will not open automatically anymore. The compartment is thoroughly cleaned and wont even open if its empty so gook or over filling is not the problem. I believe I probably knocked off some part that makes it open at the proper time. If someone could explain how the process works and/or submits a picture of the parts, I could perhaps deduce what is missing. Thank you in advance as this is driving me nuts!
