Remove the bottom two panels below the dishwasher door. There are two phillips screws and two nut screws.

Replace the broken cable by first hooking the cable to the side of the dishwasher. The other end of the cable assembly with two holes hooks up to the two large springs which keeps the door in balance. Hook one spring at a time to the cable assembly.

Reassemble the two bottom panels with the four screws.

YOU ARE DONE - Congratulations, you just saved $125 which is what the plumber quoted me.
