Bad door gasket-leaking, broken door spring

My door spring had broken and I was going to leave it until the door gasket failed and started leaking. After removing the parts, I got on-line and order what I needed. I found everything easier than I thought. I got the parts a few days later and put the gasket in first. Looking at it, you'll find theres slotted ribs at both ends. Those areas go in the bottom corners because of the "S" curve. Simply push in and voila, you're done. At first the door will be firm to shut, but gets better- NO LEAKS! As far as the door spring...you don't have to remove the whole dishwasher. Simply unscrew the bottom plate under the door and reach in, rehook. Piece of cake. This site is wonderful. All the parts and easy to use.

One the door springs broke

We removed the bottom access panel, and were able to remove the broken spring. As others have suggested, we ordered two new springs, so we could replace them both at the same time. Unlike others, we didn't have to move the dishwasher out a few inches to access the springs. An easier repair than it might have been!

Door spring broke

I removed the 2 screws that hold the dishwasher in so I could pull it out. I found out later I didnt need to do this. then I removed the bottom cover and saw the spring that was broken. I removed the spring, hooked the new one into place and I was done.
This was the easiest repair I ever had to do.

Dooor fell open. Needed new springs

Unscrewed the dishwasher from counter, located in center front, pulled the dishwasher out, very easy, only about 12 inches, opened the door and saw where the springs went. The spring on the right was missing entirely. Hooked the new springs into place, closed the door, slid the dishwasher back into place. Took about 5 minutes. Thanks to this web site, and the fact that other people had reported how to do the repair. Only cost was that of the springs!

Broken dishwasher door spring

Removed the lower panel (two screws near the floor, two screws with the door open).

Remove screws holding the top of the dishwasher in place.

Remove two screws holding the incoming water switch.

Pull the dishwasher out to access the left side of the dishwasher.

With the door closed remove the spring (replaced both left and right).

Test the motion of the door.

Reverse the process
1. push dishwasher back in
2. Attach water switch bracket
3. Attach top screws that hold the dishwasher in place
4. Replace lower panel
5. Attach screws for lower panel

Test the door motion,

I replaced the gasket a couple of years ago for less than $50. The springs with shipping for less than $25. I wonder how much longer the dishwasher will last. The repairs are easier than putting in a new dishwasher and a whole lot cheaper.
