The door had no resistance when opened and fall down. Then, after awhile, the door began to slam down when open. So I'm guessing that one of the door balances gave out. Then the other. So I unscrewed the screws on each side of the dishwasher and noticed the broken string on each side. Replacement was simple. Connect the springs to the rear of the dishwasher. Attach the strings to the springs, replace the pulleys with the new ones supplied with the kit and attach the other end of the strings to the dishwasher door. Watch the video for more help.
