Cove Dishwasher Door Latch


  • Cove Dishwasher door latch
  • Dishwasher door will not close after being installed
  • How to reset the Dishwasher door latch
  • New Dishwasher install control panel non-responsive
  • Cove has no display and controls do not respond
  • Unit dead on arrival


During installation, the door latch cam can rotate into the closed position with the door open.

  • Installers MUST AVOID using the top brace, shown below in the red box, to pull the door open. Instead, use the keyhole slots, circled below in green, to open the door.
  • As the unit is moved into the opening position, lifting on the door assembly may engage the latch into the closed position without latching the door shut. Instead, close the door first, then move the unit into position.
  • Always use the door frame or keyholes in the top brace to pull the door open.

The door latch can be reset.

  1. Remove the front door panel.
  2. Insert a screwdriver into the blue circle, pictured below, to push the spring plate forward and the latch back into the open position.
  3. Reattach the front door panel.

A label was added to the front panel on all units after serial number 20007530 to help guide reset instructions.

If door latch does not reset, contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.

Refer to the product Installation Guide for further installation information.
