Removed 2 screws that held unit under counter. Slid diswasher out about half way; reattached metal spring in back and removed broken string. Attached replacement string to spring and threaded through wheels (copying other side), then attached string to door. Tada! Done. Will never pay a call-out fee again (for this problem anyway...)
