Door spring broke

  • Customer: Carol from Duncanville TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
Removed the service panel below the door (4 hex-head screws), then reached in and took the old broken spring out (right side) and hooked the new one up.

Glad I bought 2 springs - the other one (left side) broke about a week after I fixed the first one! Replaced it the same way. Helps to have small hands - you can't really see where you're putting the springs but can feel where they should go.

I had to replace the door gasket but it would not go in very easy..So I put the gasket in a sink of warm water so it would be more pliable. Then it went on fairly easy.

Small Constant Drip (Leak)

I pulled out the dishwasher removed the two heating element insulated wires and removed both threaded brass nuts and replaced them both. Problem solved. Luckily I have a local parts and repair store with a repairman that knows every part of every appliance ever made (no kidding, I have yet to stump him with a part or question). He did not have the parts, told me to go to partselect.com order two nuts, replace them both at the same time, and fix it myself because its an easy repair and not worth paying hundreds of dollars, if you can use a wrench. He was right, and partselect.com had the right parts, at the right price, easy to find and order, and I can impress the wife with my repair skills. Thanks again!

So easy it shouldn't even count as a repair, really. The dishwasher, there when I bought the place, had a lower rack that wouldn't roll out as it should. That's because there were no wheels on the left side.

The rack lifts out easily. These wheels snap on to small protrusions from the wire rack.

My dishwasher started leaking at the beginning of the summer. We didn't know what to do, but didn't want to call an appliance repairman. Towards fall, a friend came over and pulled it out and found the heating element brass nut which was broken. We put it back in and washed dishes the old-fashioned way for another 3 months after that. I asked at my local hardware store for the part, and thought about trying one of those big-box do-it-yourself stores but never got around to it. Finally after getting sick and tired of doing all the dishes in the house by hand, I found your site, and the part I needed and ordered two (just-in-case). A few days later, we got the part, I pulled the dishwasher out again, screwed on the new nut by hand and put it back into place. We're in business!

The parts arrived 20 hours after ordering -great service & the parts were just like like the removed parts only new. The old door gasket was pulled from its groove & and the new gasket was installed witout using tools. No more leaking water.The door spring installation wesa bit more difficult. The front bottom was removed with a nut drive, the broken springs were fished out, new springs were pull onto the arms and the cover put back in place. Not a bad job for a crippled, one-eyed 82 year old man.
