Dishwasher stopped before end of cycle. It won't start, no indicator light activated.
You will want to check the door switches to make sure that they are good. The switches should have continuity when pushed. If the door switches checks ok then test the control module to make sure that there is 120 vac getting to the board when the latch is pushed in. If there is 120 vac then the control module would be the issue.
Dishwasher will not close? There is nothing in the way. Is latch broken?
Answer Hello Rosemarie. You will need to check the latch and strike to see if they are broken and need to be replaced. You need to disassemble the door to do this.
I ordered the door latch and have installed it correctly. Now they want me to replace the strike plate. I am having a hell of a time getting the old strike plate out. What's the secret?
Answer Hello Phil,
You will need to pull the dishwasher out a few inches to access the strike so it can be replaced. It actually clips in with the small knotch on the strike. You sometimes have to carefully bend the frame to get the old one out but try not to bend it in a manner that it cannot be bent back so the new one can stay in position.
