One day the door came slaming down. Pulled off the bottom two panels and noticed a broken spring. For the small investment I purchased two new springs and replaced both while I was down there.1) Pulled off the bottom two panels2) Took note of location of where the springs were and removed the old springs.3) With my fingers found the holes and placed new spring on the door side. 4) With some muscle stretched the spring untill it joined the multiple tension slots on the frame of the washer.5) Found the correct tension to suppt the door opening and closing properly.6) Replaced the two bottom panels7) Cleaned up and was done!Thank you partselect for your great web help!

Took the bottom panel off and felt with fingers to replace spring with out pulling dishwasher out from enclosure.Fairly simple
Following instructions I found on the web, I removed the bottom plates of the dishwasher and could see the broken spring hanging from its attachment point. After shutting the power off, I reached in, removed the broken spring and with a bit of muscle, attached the new spring and stretched it to a bracket that gave the door stability when openeed. Took about 20 minutes to finish up and the door works nicely. Saved a ton of money versus calling in a repair man at $90 for arriving and $30 each 15 minutes
Removed upper spray arm assembly using simple nutdriver hand tool and reinstalled new parts supplied as part of the complete repair kit.Broken door spring required screw driver to loosen bottom cover plate screws on front of dishwasher. Two screws were also removed that held the dishwasher under cabinet. to upper counter top. Dishwasher was moved out about 6 inches to gain access to sides. After screws were removed, on thet bottom front of the dishwasher, cover plate could be removed to gain access to side areas to remove broken door spring and replace with new parts. Reassembled in reverse order and the job is complete. Total repair time was approximately 30 minutes.
After removing the access panel the only difficulty I had was the fact that the dishwasher happens to be in an inconvenient spot in my kitchen, repair-wise. I needed locking pliers to get a good enough grip on the undamaged spring in order to remove it. Once I got that off, installing the new springs was childs play. Wife had visions of a new $700 dishwasher dancing in her head. Not!!!
Removed screws that held dishwasher in place. Pulled unit forward 6 inches. Removed broken spring and good spring. Installed new springs. Adjusted springs. Pushed unit back in position. Re-installed screws. Done.
Pulled out dishwasher fron underneath counter and checked to see if springs were broken. One spring was broken. New springs were ordered from Parts Supply and received in 2 days. Very easy to replace and adjust new springs on side of dishwasher. Door is now working fine. Thank you for the speedy service.
