This dishwasher door hinge cable assembly connects the door to the spring. The door hinge cable and the door spring apply tension to the door to prevent it from dropping open too quickly. This part contains two plastic pieces which are approximately 2 inches in length by 3/4-inch in width, as well as a rope portion that measures approximately 8 inches in length. When beginning this repair, be sure to use caution when replacing the door hinge cable. The spring to which the door hinge cable attaches is under tension and could snap. This part is sold individually.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed mounting screws from sides of disher. Removed broken piece of connector assy still attached to hinge. Attached new connector assy to hinge then looped it around pulley with spring attached to opposite end. Need both hands to pull spring up to side of tub and connect it. I would suggest replacing both connector assemblies while you have the dishwasher pulled out. Push dishwasher back in and mount with screws.

Loosened 3 screws and unhooked supply line and electric box and pulled it out.
I disconnected the power cord and the drain hose, with a nut driver, under the sink. I removed the bottom plate that covers the water connection under the dishwasher. With the water turned off I used an adjustable wrench to disconnect the water line. I open the door and disconnected the brackets under the counter top, with a phillips screwdriver, that hold the dishwasher in place. I pulled the dish washer out of its enclosure far enough to fully access the spring loaded mechanism to replace the "connector assembly". Then I put it all back where it belonged.. Go slowly and have patience.
