Dishwasher door became really heavy to operate

Note: This procedure assumes replacement of both eyelet cables. It is recommended that both eyelet cables be replaced at the same time.

1. Using a Philips' head screwdriver, remove the four screws holding the lower front panel (below dishwasher door).
2. Remove the faulty eyelet cable(s) hooked into the springs at one end and the door hinges at the other.
3. Take the new eyelet cables and hook them onto the door hinge on either side. Ensure a secure fit.
4. Guide the eyelet cable around the spinwheel on one side and insert the hooks of the springs into the eyelets.
5. Pull on the springs and insert their hooks into the eyelets of the other cable, ensuring a secure fit.
6. Test the door by opening and closing it a few times to ensure the spring has tension.
7. Replace the lower front panel cover removed in step 1 with its screws.

Dishwasher door no longer stays up and is heavy

I removed a front access panel below the door and found a broken steel cable going to the spring assembly which helps lift the door. I ordered a replacement from PartSelect which arrived quickly. To fix the problem, all I had to do was attach one end of the cable to the springs, route the cable across a nylon wheel, and slip the eyelet end of the cable onto a mounting post. Then reattach the access panel and I was done. Problem fixed.

Appliance door would fall open and was heavy to close

I first removed four screws holding the two cover panels attached to the dishwasher front at the bottom. Next I removed the broken cable and put everything back together that had sprung apart when the cable broke. Then I inserted the two door springs ends into the cable slots. Next I pulled on the springs to create slack and attached the cable / eyelet assembly to the protruding tab on the dishwasher frame. After attaching both sides the door works perfectly.

Eyelet assembly broke

Took off the lower faceplates. Removed the old eyelet assemblies (one broken, one not) and replaced both with new ones. Very easy to repair.

Dishwasher door really heavy.

I have to be honest. At first I called a repair person, but it was Sunday so he couldn't come till the following week. Then my incredibly intelligent, industrious, and internet-savvy wife found your website. We saw that others had had the same problem. The part we needed was right there.... voila! 2 days later I had the part in hand. Not being the most handy of handymen, I followed the directions that others who had the same problem had posted. Yep, it was that simple -- And a heck of a lot cheaper than a repair person. Your website was very valuable, and I definitely will refer it to others looking for a part for a home repair job.
