Turned off power to dishwasher and shut off water supply.
Removed the screws holding the dishwasher to the countertop and the base plate at the bottom. Put some cardboard down on the wood kitchen floor to prevent scratching and pulled the dishwasher out about a foot. Installed new spring and then checked tension and adjusted tension by moving spring connection until door held its position correctly, making sure to have springs on both sides set the same way.

Then pushed dishwasher back into position and reattached base plate and to countertop.
