The door of the dishwasher does not close

To understand the mounting of the door of the dishwasher, you must look inside where it is attached. There you can see:

The loop begins to move then, we completely open the machine door. To open it, you need to make a certain force, which is quite enough for the spring to stretch as much as possible. The blocking element is fixed by the cable, so that the spring does not pull back, thereby the doors remain open. They will remain in this position until you yourself close them. The blocking will immediately remove, which will lead to compression of the spring, which will pull the cable. The door must be held, because it will be attracted by the spring, so it will slam quickly.

Allow the situation when the lock element has broken. In this case, you must constantly hold the door so that because of the stretched spring it does not return to a closed position. It will be necessary to deliver constant effort so that it is open during the loading of dishes. In the event that the locking device was out of order, the operation of the door of the dishwasher is not permissible. Otherwise, the mechanism will be completely broken, which will eventually lead to serious repair.

Why does the dishwasher are not closed?

The first sign of problem is the lack of water. The car does not start a washing cycle, although all programs work properly.

Any damage that interferes with the closure should be eliminated. During locking the lock at the electronic level, a click should be heard. After that, the water fence begins into the bunker, as the module receives a signal of closing.

What can lead to a violation of the closing density of the door of the PMM Hotpoint Ariston, Bosch:

  • Incorrect installation of equipment. If the car is not exhibited, its case is at an angle, then the door lies loosely to the walls of the camera.
  • Overloading baskets with dishes. Look into the camera. Maybe excess dishes or a large dish interferes with closing? Move the tray closer to the camera, remove excess utensils.
  • Violation of the fit of sealing rubber, deformation.
  • The lock lock of the door or the simistor of its control on the module broke.
  • The spring stretched out, the cable of the door attachment mechanism broke off. Details are subject to replacement.

The main problems are listed above. Now we will figure out how to solve them at home.

The causes of the PMM malfunction

Before you understand the breakdown, turn off the equipment from the network.

To find out why the door broke, you need to open it and carefully examine it. Here are the most common reasons:

  • The tightness of the sealing elastic band, which is located around the perimeter, interferes with dense closure. Perhaps she deformed or jumped off.
  • The dishes container is installed incorrectly, or a large item interferes with the closure. Check and install the elements correctly.
  • The dishwasher is installed on an uneven surface, which is why the door is distorted and does not fall into fasteners. The correct installation is checked according to the instructions.
  • The mechanical castle is faulty, the wiring from the castle to the module is broken.

If the dishwasher does not fix the door open, the reason may be in the working mechanism: spring, cable, block.

How to carry out your own repairs

If you fail to close the new Bosch, HotPoint Ariston or another, immediately contact the service center. But if the equipment has long been in operation, then start by checking the lock.

Installation of the castle

Before the water fence, the dishwasher fixes the door not only at the mechanical, but also at the electronic level. A characteristic click reports that the lock worked. The control module blocks the closure by applying the pulse to the castle. Therefore, during the washing cycle it is impossible to open the camera.

The exception is PMM models with the function of proofs. When you press the key, the flow of water stops, and the hopper opens. After loading the devices, the door is blocked again.

  • Remember or photograph the location of the wiring.
  • Disconnect the chips of the wires.
  • Twist two screws in the upper part that attach the lock.
  • To replace you will need a reprimatum kit that you can buy in the store.
  • Install a new element in place and attach the wiring.
  • Put the lid in place, fix the fasteners.

When the fasteners of the castle are damaged, they can be repaired with your own hands.

Sharpen the sharp edges that have broken down with a file. Take a tin plate 0.5 mm thick, 4 mm wide. Bend it around the edges and make holes for fastening (as in the photo):

Also prepare holes on the sides of the castle. They must coincide with those on the plate. Attach the plate to the lock with self.tapping. Collect the mechanism.

Replacing the seal

Sealing rubber is replaced simply. The main thing is to choose the right replacement for your PMM model. Consider how to perform work on the example of the dishwasher “Ariston”:

  • Open the bunker door.
  • Remove the seal around the perimeter.
  • Insert a new element into the seat, make sure that it sat tightly.

It happens that you need a replacement of the lower seal:

  • Loosen the side screws on the inner panel.
  • Raise the door up to remove the front panel.
  • Pull the lower basket from the camera.
  • Pincet pull out the lower seal.
  • Install the seal so that its end is on the same line with the edge of the case.
  • Collect the door in the reverse order.

There are such problems when the door of the dishwasher does not open. Look in the instructions The time for which the lock is unlocked after washing. Perhaps you were too hasty with the opening. After the end of the program, the lock is not unlocked until the water completely merges from the tank.

If a lot of time has passed, but the door does not open. it is a malfunction. Maybe the water is not completely removed from the hopper. Sometimes the system displays an error code on the scoreboard, which helps the user find a problem faster faster.

Water remains due to the blockage of the drain system, breakdown of the pump.

When the door is not fixed in the open position, tighten the adjusting bolts. In different models of machines, they can be located on top and side, at the end. So you can adjust the tension of the spring at your discretion.

Check the correct installation of the dishwasher, follow the instructions and problems will bypass you. How to install a dishwasher correctly, read here. And also see

Repair of faults

It happens that banal inattention can damage a new device. If the cause of damage to the door closure of the user was the user, then you can try contacting the repair service center to eliminate this malfunction. The same applies to mechanical damage to the loops. The service center will have to identify a faulty element and replace it with a new. As for the loops, the repair can drag on for a rather long time. The reason for this may be the lack of spare parts. Such a part is rarely broken and few of the suppliers keep it in stock. The rest of the details are most often available.

If the reason for the failure of the door attachment system was natural wear, then the repair does not always make sense to carry out. These details are rarely broken and the car is most likely already old. Search for spare parts and price often make repairs inappropriate.

What to do if the door does not close the dish

If the cause of the malfunction was the incorrect placement of dishes and devices inside the bunker, you need to shift them so that they do not prevent closing. Also check if you have come out of the guide videos on which the trays move. Their improper position also becomes an obstacle to the door closure.

If the door does not close the door, check the position of the unit itself. If it stands at an angle, align it. The door should take the right position and close. Check if the car is based on all four legs. Perhaps you need to unscrew everything or some of them to level the position. Visually, the machine can stand evenly, but during operation it vibrates, which is why the displacement gradually occurs.

Inspect the rubber seal on the lid. From prolonged operation, too hard water, inappropriate detergents, he could crack, swell, stretch or, conversely, shake. If the cuff is deformed, it needs to be replaced. You can do this yourself if you buy suitable rubber in a store of components for household appliances. It is better to buy a cuff designed for a car of your brand. Universal are also found, but they may not come up. The seal is simply inserted into the groove instead of the old. If necessary, it can be cut.

You can also try to replace an independent spring or bursting cable in the cover of covering the lid, if the cause of the malfunction in them. These parts are sold in stores or service centers. If the model of the dishwasher allows you to perform such minor repairs without disassembling its case, you can handle it on your own. If not, it is better to call a specialist.

Attention: all repair work must be carried out strictly with the equipment turned off from the network!

If the castle breaks

Когда у машинки не закрывается крышка, причиной может стать механическая поломка замка или блокиратора. Old models have plastic lock details, they easily break. It is impossible to repair a broken lock in most cases, but you can replace it with new. The main thing is to choose the same as it was installed in the dishwasher. You can do this yourself or call the house of the dishwasher to the house. He will remove the old castle, put a new one and check his work. To do this, you do not need to dismantle the entire device and take it to the workshop, everything can be done at home.

Another reason because of which the door does not close tightly and the washing process does not start, this is the failure of the systemist responsible for blocking the door. The control unit simply does not understand that the door is closed, so it does not give a command to supply water and the beginning of the program. In this case, it will not work to fix the machine yourself. We’ll have to call the master.

Why does the door of the dishwasher do not close

A dishwasher is a rather complicated mechanism that can fail. This happens for various reasons, but most often the problem lies in improper operation. The problem is much less common at the first launch. In this case, there may be two reasons. incorrect connection or production marriage.

To understand what caused a malfunction, it is necessary to exclude the first point, check the connection. This applies to power supply and water supply.

If the car does not close, it paralyzes all its work. In this case, the reason lies in the castle located on the door of the device. He can completely break or shift from his place. In the latter case, it is necessary to unscrew the mount, shift the element, and then securely fix it. It is also necessary to pay attention to the sealing material, perhaps when closing the door, it shifts, preventing it from closing it tightly. It remains to try to close the dishwasher and turn it on. If the problem is not solved, perhaps the problem is either in the lock itself or in the control device. If something happened with electronics, modern devices will report this by showing an error number on the display. By its decoding, it will be possible to understand what the problem really is.

It is worth paying attention to whether the door is distorted. After all, with careless operation, the door level could well be violated. If this is noticed, it must be adjusted. If the door was distorted for a long period, a fixing element may have been worn out. In this case, it must be replaced. Pollution can get into the fixing device. And its presence can lead to a lack of density when closing the door.

Another possible reason is that the control module has broken. The command is not given to blocking the castle. As a rule, the reason is a general software failure or the physical problem of the board. To find out exactly, it is necessary to diagnose, and only specialists can do this qualifiedly.

If the door of the dishwasher does not open

However, another breakdown may arise with the door. it may not open. This happens after the washing process. The user fails to open the door and at the same time it is necessary to study the instructions. After all, most often after a full washing cycle there is a certain period during which the door remains closed. This is necessary to ensure the safety of use. Before opening the door, it is necessary to turn off the power and preferably block the water supply.

For example, water may remain in the dishwasher. She could not leave the device, for example, in connection with a sucker in the sewer. The output filter is often clogged, which must be periodically cleaned to avoid such situations. If this did not help, it is worth considering the option of breaking electronics. Perhaps there was a failure in the program. For example, the cycle is completed, but the water was not merged, as a result of which you can not open the door.

If the reason lies in the failure in the electronic system, it is necessary to entrust its repair to a professional. He will be able to make high.quality diagnostics, detect a malfunction and eliminate it.

Why the door of the dishwasher is not fixed

The reason for the lack of fixation is usually in mechanical breakdown. The locking mechanism of the door consists of a stretch cable, spring, closer and loop. When the door opens, the loop pulls the cable, it stretches the spring. In the normal state of your own weight, the door is enough to stay in the open state. All details are compensated and hold the door. If the door falls, this means that some of the elements of the mechanism has broken or stretched.

If the door, on the contrary, closes, this indicates that:

  • The mechanism is not adjusted, the spring is too tight;
  • To compensate for the force of the spring, you need a heavier facade: in built.in dishwashers, it is designed for the mass of the door, taking into account the weight of the furniture facade;
  • This is a normal situation: when opening less than 30 degrees, the door should be closed, this is provided by manufacturers of most cars.
dishwasher, does, close

Another option for a malfunction is that the door is not fixed in a closed state, which is why the dishwashing cycle does not begin. This is a sign of breakdown of the locking device: the “brain” of the machine does not see that the door is closed. In some models, the corresponding error code is displayed on an electronic board. In this case, only the repair of the dishwasher will help.

Why is the door of the new car not fixed

Most of the dishwashers are built into the kitchen set. The facade is hung on the metal door so that it does not differ in appearance from the rest of the doors of the kitchen furniture. Manufacturers in accompanying documents usually write what maximum weight of the facade can be attached to the door so that it works correctly. The mass should be from 2 to 7 kg. It is not necessary to exceed this value, otherwise the mechanism will not withstand and break.

When installing new equipment or furniture, the master must check how the lock is triggered. If the door of the dishwasher does not hold, then you need to adjust the mechanism, check the tension of the spring.

How to carry out your own repairs

If you fail to close the new Bosch, HotPoint Ariston or another, immediately contact the service center. But if the equipment has long been in operation, then start by checking the lock.

  • Install a new element in place and attach the wiring.
  • Put the lid in place, fix the fasteners.

What does the fixing mechanism consist of?

First, we will deal with the internal structure of the PMM, to determine the breakdown, it was easier.

The fixing mechanism is located inside the door and consists of the following elements:

Some models, such as Bosch, also provide closers who make the door move more smooth.

The mechanism of operation of this system is simple. You open the dishwasher and thereby set the loops in motion. This enhances the tension of the cable, and he, after him, stretches the spring. When the spring is stretched as much as possible, the locking element falls into a special hole and fixes the structure, preventing the spring from closing. At this moment, PMM can be in the open position. As soon as you want to close it and lead the door up, the lock will leave the grooves and allow the spring to slam the door.

That is why PMM, not equipped with closers, when closing, it is worth holding. If this is not done, the door will slap loudly, there will be a jerk that can damage internal mechanisms or housing.
