Repair was easy. Unfortunately I really didn't need the springs or linkage, but I couldn't see that until I took the dishwasher out from the counter. The springs were not stiff enough to keep the door from just falling open. So I cut about an inch off the long end and bent it into a hook. I didn't need new linkages the old ones were fine. The gasket made the biggest difference and went in very easy. The door will be difficult to close for a few times then everything works great.
