Dishwasher Door Problem
I wrote this article to help other residents at Burrium Gate who may have similar problems.
While the dishwasher door reached the vertical, the catch did not seem to engage fully; worse still, it would not power on.
Guy's Bodge: I pushed the door a little harder, and then I wedged it closed with a piece of card in each side. I kept pushing and praying in equal measure until I could hear the water start pumping into the dishwasher.

'Have you ever changed the filter in your fridge' the engineer asked? 'Didn't know there was one', I said. He kindly removed the blue tape up by the top light in the fridge (not the freezer). Next he took off the plastic unit and unscrewed the cartridge. It required more torque than John Motson's tongue, but he got it off. The engineer also persuaded me to order a replacement. I selected the super-duper filter, the one that's supposed to make the water from the drinks dispenser taste sweeter.
I'll get back to you if it really makes any difference to the drinks.
