Customer Question
Hi. My...

Hi. My Bosch dishwasher is a model HX68E05UC/13. The door is having trouble shutting. It seems to be a latch on the top that doesn't want to raise up so the door will close correctly. Do you have a recommendation? I recall hearing a "click" when the door closes normally, but I do not hear that click with this issue.

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I think I reset it. I have powered it off and back on several times. It will not start a cycle because the door won't shut properly.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.

Does it just stop hard when you close it like something is stopping it?

Right. I believe a latch on the top seems to be stuck in a down position and won't raise up high enough to permit the door to close in all the way.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Can you take a picture of the latch and upload it here so I can see what you are seeing?

You can also call me to discuss it "live".
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

A phone call costs more to do and it is getting late for a phone call. I could call you tomorrow though or we can continue on here.

Ok. Let's continue here. I think we can just discuss it here on the chat. Do you have any other questions?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

If you can upload a picture of what you are seeing I can tell you a lot faster what is the issue that way

I believe that this latch that you see won't raise up to allow the door to shut.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There is a lever to the left of the latch that when depressed, it does "nothing" to raise up the latch.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

I am not sure what the picture is can you take another one back further?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sure. Give me a couple minutes
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

ok take a couple so I can clearly see the whole thing

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have about 10 more minutes. Then I have to go. We can pick this up tomorrow if you don't have any ideas after then.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

OK either the door latch is bent or broken, if that latch will not lift up you need a new lock, here is a link to the part. They go bad and the spring breaks

CLICK HERE

It installs from the top and the unit needs to be slide out about 8 inches to install it.

I am not satisfied with your answer. There must be a way to 100% determine if anything is broken. What test must I conduct to determine this answer? I am out of time. Thank you for your effort tonight.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

The piece that is down not allowing the door to close is the lock, it is a one piece part, you need to uninstall the unit and slide it out and check to see if the spring is broken in it, I am not sure why you are not satisfied this is just a $15 cheap part they break if it will not reseat up and hold.

The latch that won't open has a spring loaded lever that is working fine. I feel the spring working correctly. Please give me my money back, as this could not possibly be the correct answer.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

I advised you needed to check it out and see if the spring was working and not broken you need to read the posts please do not post back to this I am opting out of your question and it will just delay a refund.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the latch appears to be working fine, the door alignment may be off. Can you double check that model number, please? I am not finding it in the database to pull up the service manual to get you precise pictures and diagrams.

Again, I am not satisfied with your service. Please afford a full refund.
