I used a screwdriver to remove the bottom panel and pulled out the appliance. Tools were not required for the rest of the repair. The left side was not broken so I just duplicated the arrangement with the new parts on the right. Hook the spring to the back of the chassis. Hook one end of the link cord onto the door and lace it through the pulley and guide. Pull the spring with one hand and hook the other end of the link cord onto the spring with the other. Push the appliance back in and replace the bottom panel. Done in 10 minutes.
