    Second door interlock I have fitted

    Certainly easy to fit and because the spring had broken on a previous interlock and the unit replaced I knew exactly what the problem was. It does feel a bit odd to have to replace the whole part each time the spring breaks but I suspect that is not eSpares fault.

    Dishwasher door problem solved

    We replaced the faulty door lock on our hotpoint dishwasher with this part and with the helpful video on Espares. It's working well so far and I hope it's sturdy enough to last. We've rated it 4 stars for now as it's too soon to advise on the longevity of the product. During the repair we discovered that the previous door lock's spring had broken. Has saved us money on having to buy a new dishwasher, so thank you espares for helping us to identify the problem & repair it ourselves.

  • If you mean the coiled spring holding the latch in place then yes. When fitting look how the existing one fits into the "n" shaped groove and edit the extra plastic (gently) until the new one does the same. By Hearnshaw - Bronte Country - 05 April 2010

I have a DWF50 and am worried that removing this internal panel may damage the detergent release catch

By minilady - wolves - 06 April 2009
  • not sure on that model,on mine just took out top four screws and two either side.carefully pull top front and steel inner apart. WARNING mind fingers on edge of inner took chunk out of finger. By ethelsouth33 - hampshire - 08 May 2010
  • No inner panel stays in place only the top door plastics need removing. Top 8 screws will do the trick. By Kenjtay - Devon - 23 April 2010
  • You shouldn't need to remove the internal panel to fit this. The screws along the inner edge should release the outer plasic cover only. Note the 2 different threads on the screws and make sure they go back in the same place. By Hearnshaw - Bronte Country - 05 April 2010
  • The dishwasher that I repaired (haier) reqired removal of eight philips head screws to give enough acess to the switch then remove the two screws that hold the switch th the door inner, release and lift out the switch assembly remove the two power wires and refit the new switch in the reverse order. Remember to isolate the power before comensing work. By emjo - Southport Merseyside - 24 February 2010
  • I didnt think so but after fitting my new lock something must have happened as it doesnt release anymore By ksmakem - kingston upon thames - 18 February 2010
  • When you remove all the panel screws its only the outercover on the door that comes off, you dont disturb any of the detergent release catch, hinges etc, the job takes about 15 min! By ipol - Glasgow - 18 April 2009

Answer this question

Have replaced the dock lock, but have been unable to find the spring which broke off from the previous lock. Is it OK to use the dishwasher or do I have to keep searching for the spring?

By Ossie - Kent - 07 May 2014

    Chris at eSpares says...

    It is always recommended to remove any loose parts and they could damage wiring or electronic components. If you have removed the door skin and cannot locate the spring check around the control board and switches. If this is ok then you must use with caution at your own risk.

    The old catch should be alright to use if undamaged, examine carefully and replace if required.
