First we removed the screws that held the dishwasher in place. After pulling the dishwasher out, we could see the spring lying on the ground. (Usually only one breaks at a time so you can see where it goes and how it is hooked up on the one still in place.) We removed the broken link, which is made of plastic and rope, then we hooked the link on the spring and rehooked the spring in the back of the dishwasher. The next step took two people, one person had to hold the spring with tension on it while the other manuvered it around the wheels and then hooked that end up. Push back the dishwasher and replace the screws that hold it in place.
