New right away when we heard the sound, the spring broke. Easy to replace, pull dishwasher out from under countertop, usually held in place by two screws into countertop. Remove screws, pull out dishwasher. Close door, springs will now have the most slack in them. One spring located on each side. Remove spring from one side and replace with new spring to ensure proper spring placement. No actual tools needed as spring rests on a bracket attached to door and other end of spring goes through hole in bottom of dishwasher rack. open door to test for tension as there are several holes to choose from. .
