Customer Question

Hi
My Hotpoint Aquarius FDW20 door won't close properly.
I was emptying the dishwasher and heard a 'crack' like noise, then when I tried to close the door, it just didn't fit properly.
I don't think it's a problem with the door catch, as the door doesn't even reach that far!
Please can you help?

Hi

If the door wont close or even get close to closing and you heard a crack then its more then likely the hinge springs on the side have broken.

What you need to do is pull the dishwasher out and remove both side panels.

From there you will see the hinge springs running up the side of the dishwasher. Check both sides and you will see what has broken in there and then you can replace the faulty part.

Check that and see what you find. If you need anymore info just get back to me.
