This linkage attaches to the door spring.
Called a young neighbor wuth better knees and eyesight. He unfastened the dishwasher from the countertop, easy. took off the toe plate, easy, located the busted spring. ditto and manipulated the existing plastic bushing and new spring into place and Voila the door sprang open. I had ordered pnly one spring as it didn't dawn on me that there were two, so somewhere I missed the early instructions and relied on the confirmation of shipment info for instructions. If it pops again I'll know what to do. Call my neighbor.

Door Latch was almost a breeze. Do turn off power. The shock left me know that I was alive. Took 6 screws out. Sat on chair in front so that the panel could lay on my lap. The hard part was pulling the old wires off the old latch. Got it. Installed new latch. Replaced screws. Took about 15 minutes. Springs. Took off front panel, cleaned front panel. Found where springs connected to teflon hooks on door, hoot spring to door and hooked in hole on bottom brace stretching the spring. Did same for other spring. Time: 15 minutes with cleaning.
New latch comes with new gasket. The instructions are simple enough for the installation, but the new gasket needed some compressing before the latch would stay in the "closed" position without popping back open (due to the thickness of the new gasket in the lower area). I tried reinstalling the gasket a couple of times, nothing helped. It just took some time to compress. Also, the new latch varies slightly from the original, but still works perfectly.
remove both springs and replace with new
removed lower kick plate to gain access. installed new spring without any trouble. thanks for the super fast delivery.
Dealer/repairman could not get the spring, told wrong model #, after 2 weeks I looked on line with the same model #, which is my model #. Found Part Select.com, ordered on Thursday about 3 p.m., rec'd the next morning at 9:38 a.m. Great service, easy web site. Was very impressed with Part Select.com and I will recommend you to anyone I know who needs appliance parts.
