Broken cable attached to spring

Similar to what others had described. Removed bottom panel to access cable and spring area to replace cable, but plastic pulley around which the cable rode had a broken flange for about 1/2" of the circumference. This was obviously the reason the cable had become frayed and broken. There was little point in simply replacaing the cable becasue the same thing was bound to happen. It needed a new pully and after checking several sources, none was available. I used a 1 3/8" snap ring and ground off both ends removing the ears so that slightly over one half of the ring was left. This allowed me to force the open portion of the snap ring over the inner diameter of the pulley leaving the built up portion of the snap ring to fill the void left by the broken flange which satisfactorly retained the cable throughout the opening and closing of the door.

The dishwasher door was heavy because the cable broke counterbalancing the door.

I removed 4 screws holding the panel below the door in place. I removed the cable from the two pulleys and the two extention springs. Reattached the cable assembly to the springs. Put the cable under the pulley and attached the eyelet on each side. Put the 4 screws and panel back.

Door closure (cable - spring assy) broke

There were no assembly instructions with the part but I read some of the repair stories on the website and got the jest of what to do. It was a very easy fix. Remove the lower access panel, replace and reposition the cable assy. Replace access panel and I'm good to go!

Diswasher door became heavy and fell open.

I found that the door cable, which attaches to a spring system (which keeps the door from slamming open,) had broken. It was a simple repair. Remove the bottom panel of the dishwasher, reattach the cables to the hooks if they've come off, reattach the springs to the cables. Make sure the cable threads around the guide wheels. Remarkably simple!

Door springs broke

This was a simple fix. I removed the bottom panel and the broken springs for the door were exposed. Just a matter of putting the new ones around the pulleys on each side of the unit and connect the springs to one end of the cable and to the side of the door where they just slide on.

Door cable broke while openning the door causing it to fall.

After removing the lower panels below the door, I was able to see the broken cable. After looking at a diagram on your web site I identified and ordered the part. It arrived within 24 hours. It was easy to install. Total repair took about 1/2 hour.
