Spring, Lid

The dishwasher lid spring helps open the dispenser cover in the soap box when the control releases the latch. If your dishwasher does not dispense detergent, is broken and worn out, or the door is not opening properly, replacing the dispenser spring could be the solution. For this replacement you will need needle nose pliers. First, release the cover on the detergent dispenser, then remove the cover from the shaft it hinges on. Pull the shaft from one side and remove the spring from the shaft. Next, replace with the new spring and engage the two open hooks into the soap cover. Finally, grasp the hook and pull it over tab on the side of the wash cup. Verify that it works properly by opening and closing the cap. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further instructions.

Door Latch Bolt

This is a door latch bolt for a dishwasher. The door latch bolt fits on the top of the dishwasher door to keep the door closed while the appliance is running. The latch also prevents the dishwasher from running when the door is not closed, so your dishwasher may not run if the door latch bolt has been compromised. This part does not include the latch lever, so consider ordering that part as well if necessary. It is made entirely of plastic, is black in colour, and is approximately 3.5 inches wide. To access the latch bolt, you will need to remove the inner door panel of your dishwasher.

Upper Dishrack Roller Assembly

This part is gray in color and measures approximately 1-1/2 inches wide by 2-1/2 inches high by 1 inch deep. The dishrack roller assembly allows you to roll the rack with ease while the rail supports it. If you notice that the rack is not sliding back and forth easily or the dishwasher is not shutting properly, it may be due to the roller assembly needing to be replaced. The roller assembly may also break or go missing, and will need to be replaced for these reasons, too. You will need to remove the end cap of the upper rack to remove the entire rack. Use a flat-head screwdriver to snap the old roller assembly out of place. The new rollers just get pushed onto the shaft. Use the clips to lock into place. It is common for these rollers to wear down at the same speed, so you may want to replace all the rollers on the rack at the same time.
