removed 4 screws on lower plate, 2 screws on dishwasher tabs, slid unit out 6 inches, replaced spring linkage
We hired a handyman, who recommended we go online to order the parts. They arrivedat my door in less that 24 hrs! Luckily, the handyman was back the next day as well, andhe installed the new springs and spring linkage.
I pulled the unit out its bay and saw that one spring was missing. I looked up the parts online and ordered replacement springs and linkages. Using the existing spring and linkage as models, I easily installed the new parts. I ordered spare parts in case the other linkage broke.
Pulled D/W out about 1/4 of the way. Kept door latched at all times. Replaced plastic links with new ones. (one was broken but replace in pairs!). Attached springs. No tools required for this. Pushed D/W back in place and secured screws to top. Only tool used was a nut driver to remove the screws holding the D/W to the counter. Total time 7 minutes.
I went at it wrong to start. Then I figured out creating the proper angle that mirrored the normal operation was the trick. I tied a string on to the spring with the plastic part attached then the other end to a hook. I pulled the hook at the correct angle & the plastic part was lifted to its slot. Pushed it down into the slot & cut off the string.Took about 2 minutes that way.
Removed the inside door cover.Next remove door handle/latch/switch assy. Replace assy, replace covers. Done. Door spring linkage, pull out dishwasher to access sides. Insert linkage into spring hook, and install hook onto dishwasher bracket. Or just watch the video.
