Door falls open and/or is not counterbalanced

First I removed the four screws holding on two metal panels to gain access to the springs. Then I unhooked the broken assembly from the springs. Then I hooked the new assembly to the hinge. Finally, I reconnected the assembly to the springs. (I didn't have to unhook the assembly from the hinge because it had already broken off.)

This part must be one of those that commonly goes because I had replaced the other side about a year ago. The most difficult part a year ago was diagnosing the problem and figuring out how the pieces fit together. This now it was a quick repair because I knew exactly how to fix it. (And thanks to PartSelect for delivering the part in 48 hours even though I didn't pay for quick delivery.)

Cable broke- door would fall down to floor

I made a substitute cable that worked ok, but was a bit loose. When the new cable part came in I simply unhooked the substitute and hooked the new part in its place. The two spring ends slip into a hole on the cable connector. The cable loops under a plastic pulley and the far end piece fits over a small retainer. Actually, unbolting the bottom case parts and bolting them back on took more time than replacing the broken cable. The door works fine now.

Dishwasher door become very heavy - cable broke

Remove the bottom two panels below the dishwasher door. There are two phillips screws and two nut screws.

Replace the broken cable by first hooking the cable to the side of the dishwasher. The other end of the cable assembly with two holes hooks up to the two large springs which keeps the door in balance. Hook one spring at a time to the cable assembly.

Reassemble the two bottom panels with the four screws.

YOU ARE DONE - Congratulations, you just saved $125 which is what the plumber quoted me.
