Good afternoon, I've been very happy with my Kenmore dishwasher until recently. The circular detergent tray will not latch shut. There are no missing/broken pieces and the area is clean. Any trouble shooting help on getting it to close would be greatly appreciated. Model no: 363-15324100 Kenmore
When the door won't stay shut I suspect the problem is with the spring holding tension on the timer lever.The image below may help you with this problem. Sometimes the spring did not break but the plastic post the spring attaches to breaks. If the post is broken and you can find the spring then one thing to try is to screw a small screw into the post and attach the sping to it. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.
