Ordered pair of replacement cables (which arrived in 3 days). Removed 2 screws that held top of dishwasher to counter and slid machine out a couple of inches. Hooked both cables to springs and set in place keeping door closed. Hooked one cable to door and used pliers to pull springs slightly, then hooked other cable to door. Opened and closed door to check all was well --- it was. Closed everything up, 6 screws in all and washed a load of dishes!
