Customer Question

I have a Maytag MDBH945A dishwasher and I have it installed and everything work fine except I can put the two bottom panels back on without not being able to open the door. What do I do about this? Does the unit need to be raised up higher? Thanks, Rich

Are the holes matching, or are you having to force the kick plate to get it on?

Reply to Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman's Post: Hi Michael, Its weird the holes line up for the bottom plate but I have to force the other top piece up into place and that is where the problem lays. The strange thing is that the door opened fine when I first unloaded the machine. Everything is level and I have no leaks. Thanks, Rich

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,


Ok, let's take a look at this;


Is the dish machine placed in level?

If you don't have the dish machine level, it will cause it to buckle, then when you attach the kick plate it will through it out of whack
