Hello,I'm so sorry for the extended wait time, whilst I was offline. Do youstill need help with this?

Ifso, I will try to locate some information on this for you.



Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes some expert opinion would still be helpful. We have a 3-year old Siemens dishwasher but its front door won't shut tight. The safety lock mechanism pin is in the down position and cannot be moved. Siemens suggested slamming the door but hat has not helped yet. Any other ideas how the pin can be 'reset'?

Turn off the power

Remove the screws around the door

The front panel will come away

Yu will see the lcok

With a screwdriver, trip the lock into the open position, so that the latch will now fit
