Deciding it was time to address the problem of the really heavy dishwasher door, I removed the three screws that hold the cover plate over the spring assembly (had to go to the hardware store for missing screw #4). After inspecting what broke, I then went online to research how to fix the problem. That's when I found a schematic and the PartSelect web site. At first, I was going to order one cable but then realized the other cable was just as old and rusty as the one that broke. Within two business days, I had the cables and had the door fixed in about 10 minutes! Wow! It's the little things that can really cheer one up.
I didn't know exactly what was wrong, except that the door to the dishwasher had no spring tension. Four screws later I had the lower front cover popped off and could see clearly that the cable to the 'door cable and eyelet assembly' had broken. Out of curiosity, and ease of repair, I looked online to see if there were any replacement parts out there. How happy I was to have run into PartSelect.com. From the huge parts lists to the schematic diagrams to the super easy ordering, PartSelect.com helped turn a potentially ugly errand-running fix into a dream job. Couldn't have been simpler. I will definitely be returning to this site for parts. Thanks!
Very simple procedure to undo 2 screws at bottom of dishwasher....hook new cable to door side and attach spring. re-install bottom of dishwasher with the 2 screws. Overly impressed with part-select.com. they shipped the right part in about 2 days, i thought it would be at least a week.
Removed lower panels screws, remover springs and broken cable, attached the new cable. However I needed a pair of heavy duty pliers to tension the spring so I could loop the cable around the pulley. Replaced lower panels.
Removed four screws that held the bottom plate assembly. Removed the broken eyelet assembly. Then attached the Eyelet assembly to each end of the door. Connected the 2 springs to the eyelet assemblies. Reinstalled the bottom plate with the 4 screws.
Of Course, It didn't happen to me. It happened to my wife and so I get this frantic phone call at work! I came home to find the Dishwasher door weighed a TON. I diagnosed a broken cable that is attached to the assist spring and to the door on the other. Googling GE dishwasher got me to Parts Select and Wham! I had parts for on 22 year old Dishwasher! My wife figures that I can repair anything since I repair Automobiles for a living. The repair went well and was pretty straight forward.
I removed the bottom front panel, noticed the one cable was broken, ordered it and received it within 3 days. The total repair was simple and took less than 30 minutes.
Remove the 4 kickpanel screws. Fasten the clip to the door, hook the spring on the other end and done. Replace kickpanel.As others suggested, go ahead and order the pair. If one has gone, the other will sooner or later. In this case, is was 2 years, but if I had known the first time, I would have done both.Cheers,Mas Futbol
Had to remove the kick plate and replace both cacles by attaching to the springs. It was a very easy fix!
I removed two screws securing a panel on the lower front of the dishwasher. It was obvious how to replace the broken part, which was easily done with exactly the right part supplied by PartSelect.com. I re-installed the lower panel, and the dorr worked perfectly. All of my problems should be solved so easily!
I went on the internet and found what the problem more than likely was. I then removed the lower cover, under the dishwasher door ( 4 screws), immediatly saw what the problem was, the eyelet on the door cable spring had worn through. I did a search on the internet for a place to buy the part I needed (not available locally). I found PartSelect, their chart described the part perfectly, plus the picture matched my old part. I ordered the part, installed it when it arrived about 3 days later. It couldn't have gone any easier. The part cost just under $20 including shipping. To order the part locally would have been $35 and would have taken 2 weeks for shipping.
Remove bottom cover diswasher place the eyelet on the side of door attach the spring to the cable thats it. . . Thank you!!!
Unfortunately I didn't see these installation instructions from others when I ordered the cables. A Sears Repair guy came out and made the repair in about two minutes. When I saw how easy it was, I was sorry I hadn't done it myself. All that was required was what others have described: removing 4 screws to access the area, hooking up the cables and connecting the springs.
