Water leaking around door and latch mechanisim seems to have failed
Still not sure it is repaired. Still have water leakage around upper edge of door on control data panel. We just experienced an issue with the auto drain system, the first since door seal repair and door latch replacement???? Is the latching mechanism suppose to secure the door?
If so it isn't?
Not a great success story. A new washer may be in the cards

Dishwasher door stopped latching properly.
Initial inspection of the issue and research suggested the door latch was malfunctioning / broken. I bought the part and expressed it home. The installation involved removing the door screws on the inside of the door, separating the front and back panels, unplugging the door latch, removing it from its niche and popping in the new one. Reverse the take apart and it was done. Very simple swap. Hardest part was juggling the two halves of the door and preventing the door for trying to close in the process as the bulk of the weight is in the outside half of the door.

The new part did not fix the issue. The door strike was the next part that could be broken / malfunctioning. I ordered that part as well and replaced it. In the process of replacing it I found that the original door strike had been installed upside down. I am guessing it was installed at just the right pitch, or maybe even bent at the manufacturing facility, so that it latched. No idea how it managed two years like that. I installed the new one correctly and the door latches perfectly. Both parts I removed from the unit I will retain if my new parts should fail in the future.

Door latch wouldn't close
Turned off power to the dishwasher. Removed the front panel via the screws on the inner wall of the door. Lifted and pulled out the front panel. Disconnected cable connections to fully remove the front panel. Pressed down on the latches to the left and right side of the door latch. Pulled out the door latch. Put in new door latch until it clicked into place. Reattached cable connections. Put the front panel back on with the screws. Turned back on power to the dishwasher.

Door would not latch shut
Following a utube video made it easy. Removed the outer cover of the door to expose latch. Two screws remove the latch, pay attention to how it was positioned and put the new one on and then replace the panel. But first turn off the electricity to the unit at the fuse box.

When trying to start this Maytag dishwasher, model # mdb4949sdm, that was purchased on 2/2/2017,all the lights on the front panel start flashing. The door does not appear to be securing as well as it was before this happened, and there is no external handle. Do you think that the door latch has become defective in this situation. I have checked the "tab" that the latch connects to and it appears to be ok.
For model number MDB4949SDM

Hello Everett, Thank you for the question. The light blinking sequence will indicate which part or parts on your Maytag dishwasher need to be replaced or checked. If you can watch the lights and let us know the sequence we will be happy to take a look and see what part might be defective. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

The door will not stay shut. To get the dishes done, i put a heavy chair in front of the door to keep to keep it closed. Is this the part needed to fix this issue?
For model number KDFE104DSS2
PartSelect logo
Hi Synithia, Thank you for your question. Yes, if your latch is the part that is causing you any issues then it would probably need to be replaced. You could take a quick look at your catch as well. The metal piece that the latch clips into. Just check to see if it is damaged at all. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

I went to start this dishwasher this morning after closing the door and I noticed there were no lights on the control panel and it did not respond to pushing the start button. I checked the circuit breakers and all indications that the washer is receiving power.
For model number KDFE104DSS2
PartSelect logo
Hi John, Thank you for your question. If the dishwasher is not starting, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the door latch, the strike, the door balance link kit, the turbidity sensor, the motor and the electronic control board. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

All the buttons on control panel work except for the start button. I can hit the cancel drain button and it will drain, but i cant get the start button to work. Do i need to replace the control panel?
For model number MDB4709PAB4
PartSelect logo
Hello Brandon, thank you for your question. I would recommend testing the latch switches before ordering the panel. If the start button is lit up but the unit won't start, the latch switches may not be functioning properly. These switches, when activated, tell the unit that its ok to start the wash cycle. If the switches are not the issue, then the control panel would be the next step. I hope this helps!

Hello Shawn, Thank you for the question. Yes, the latch has a lock that will hold the catch. To replace the Latch you will need to remove the door panel. Hope this helps!

Wont start. Flashing no particular sequence and door wont latch. When start is pushed and door closed it will flash over 25 times with no sequence.No attempt to latch.
For model number mdb4949sdm2

Hello Brian, thank you for your question. It sounds like the latch has failed. If the latch doesn't engage the dishwasher will not start. We would recommend replacing the door latch first to see if that fixes the issue. I hope this helps!

My internet searches have produced inconsistent results. Whirlpool wdt780saem2 will not start. Some searches say the door latch is the problem, others it is the door balance kit. I have the latch out and there seems to be no continuity through the switch when the latch is closed. Tells me the latch is the problem. Does this sound correct to you?
For model number WDT780SAEM2
PartSelect logo
Hello Ivan, thank you for writing. When testing the Door Latch with a multi meter it should read as zero when functioning properly. If it reads higher than zero then the switch is faulty and should be replaced. For this symptom you will want to consider either the Door Balance Link Kit part PS972325 or the Pump Motor part PS11773089 for your model. We hope this helps.

Can a faulty door latch cause the rinse aid to not dispense? I think the latch is cracked or broken. When opening the door, the seam between the door and the control panel expands and then closes back to normal after the door is open. The opening is about 1/16". The screws holding the latch in place are tight. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
For model number KUDS30IXWHA
PartSelect logo
Hello Tom, Thank you for the question. The latch does not control the dispenser. The dispenser has a small red wax motor on the back that tells the dispenser to open and release the detergent or the rinse aid. If the rinse aid cap is not opening, you may need to have the dispenser replaced. You can also remove and check the rinse aid cap to see if there has been any wear or damage that would prevent it from opening. Hope this helps!

I noticed the wrong cycle had been selected, so i stopped and reset the program. Once it reset all the lights went out and now the control panel is non-responsive to touch and does not light up. What might the cause and fix be?
For model number KUDS30IXBLA
PartSelect logo
Hi Scott, Thank you for your question. Try cutting power to the dishwasher for 5 minutes and turning it back on. If this does not help, you may need to test the electronic control board with a multimeter to see if it is working correctly. If the dishwasher will still not start, some other parts that you will need check are the pump, the sump and motor assembly, the capacitor, the door latch, the turbidity sensor and the touchpad. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
