I removed the screws holding in the dishwasher and pulled the unit out. The broken door balance link was removed from the door balance. The door balance was removed from the dishwasher with a socket and replaced with the new balance. The new door balance link was hooked on the door and threaded through the balance, The spring was hooked into the back of the dishwasher through the frame. With the pliers the hook on the spring was grabbed, extended and the hook on the spring was fished through the door balance link. The process was repeated for the opposite side.
