Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. I think we all hate doing dishes by hand so I will try my best to help. As the strike hits the latch it moves the spring tensioned arm over to allow the latch to close & secure the door in the closed position. Please see the images provided for more details. The strike on the tub can be loosened & moved in/out for adjustments.  
 Normally the door latch is not what causes this type of problem. This is usually caused by the door strike. You can see the strike in the image below. I suggest you pull the dishwasher out from under the counter to get a better look at the strike. I wouldn't expect you to have to uninstall the dishwasher to pull it out a couple of inches. The strike may need "tweaking" to fix the problem. This you an do with a flat head screwdriver. If the door is still not latching after this, then replace the door latch assembly. This is part number W10077360 and you can click here to order it from Sears Parts Direct.com. I would suggest that you have a technician install this part.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others. Wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

If you decide that you do not feel comfortable repairing this problem yourself, you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Click here to schedule service at the Sears Home Services website. A 10% discount coupon is available when service is set online.

Thank you for your question.

I see that you have done a lot to try to cure this problem and I can understand how this could be frustrating, with not being able to solve the problem.

  • I do not know if you are aware of the little backflow check valve that is in the drain hose just behind the elbow where the drain hose attaches to the pump. It is designed to keep the water from coming back into the dishwasher. Sometimes these check valve will get backwards and restrict the drain pump flow.

  • Since you have eliminated so many possibilities, you might not have known it was there. It may be the problem when the pump works it is restricting the water flow enough to cause if not to full flow.

  • If this is not the problem please use the link and I can see if we cannot figure something else that could be causing the low flow.

If you find that this is the problem you may need to replace the hose since you may not be able to get to the flapper in the hose and move it the other way.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I have checked the back flow check valve and that does not seem to be the problem. Could it be the motor?

Thank you for the update. I would suggest that you take the drain hose off the disposal and run it in a bucket to see how it pumps out. The drain pump could be the problem and I would suggest removing the drain pump by holding back the retainer clip and removing the pump with a half twist and look at the impeller and drain port with the little black flapper valve. For some reason there seems to be a blockage of water flow or the impeller on the pump is not pumping the water at full flow. Let me know what you find. Sam A.

There is not resistor make for this particular valve nor is there an adjustment to be made.

You will most likely have to do the same thing for the dishwasher that you did for the washer valve.

I'm curious about what water pressure you have? Are you at the bottom of a hill with the water supply on top of the hill? This is not a common problem with this valve.

Dear Fred M, A good question about the water pressure to the house. I had it checked and it is well within normal limits, but on the higher end. Unfortunately, I cannot easily just install washing machine type water arrestors. These mount on rigid brass lines. My dishwasher feed is a reinforced hose. I was told by a plumber that all new construction requires installation of water hammer arrestors on washing machines and dishwashers for just the problem I am experiencing, so I thought there might be a basic fix available. I now have the flexible feed line clamped down about 50% and it has helped reduce this dynamic back pressure and resulting water hammer. However, it does not completely solve it and it is not the proper way to fix such a problem. Thanks for your advice. I don't understand why the in-wall cannisters aren't working, but it could be that the water hammer has existed for years (just bought the house a few years ago) and has loosened pipe supports allowing the rattle. No plumber I've spoken with has offerred anything short of ripping out walls to tighten the pipe supports -- not something I want to do or pay for. I think my next step will be to partially close the main feed valve to the house and maintain the clamp on the feed line to the dishwaser. If it gets worse .....? Thanks, rrl271
