This door spring is manufactured for a dishwasher door. The door spring applies tension to the dishwasher door so that the door does not drop too quickly when it is opening. If the door drops too quickly, it could cause damage to the dishwasher door or dishwasher door hinges. This spring is sold individually. Check the spring on the opposite side of the dishwasher door, they often wear at the same rate so you may want to replace both springs for exact tension on either side. No tools are required for this repair. This is an OEM replacement part.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed the screws holding the dishwasher in the counterspace. Pulled it out far enough to re-attach the new spring, scoot it back in place, and put the screws back to hold it in, and attach the plate to the bottom that was taken out first. Good to go.

Instealled spring. I know people say to change both but I ordered 2 and kept 1 for a spare. This was easy. Door seal a lil tricky but easy. Lil taps and went right in. Door kinda hard to shut at first but getting better and no leaks.
Well, first of all I want to thank you for letting me know there were two springs and also for showing the two springs because I had almost ordered from another site the official Frigidare site which did not show the other spring, the right one. I would have ordered the wrong spring. I got a spring from you with shipping (very fast Fed-X) for the price of their spring alone. Also, your site was very helpful in explaining how to put it on and advised to get two which I intended to but only ordered one, It was so easy. Beaucoup thanks!
Removed front panel and eased out screws holding the dishwasher in place. Lowered the door and removed old springs. Replaced the springs and sit the unit back in place. When they are this old it is best to replace both springs. Rated easy...,
The 'kick plate' had to be removed, and the feet had to be raised to lift the unit over the floor. the old spring could not be found, and while lying on the floor my husband had to 'feel' for the attatchments to hook up the new spring. The unit was then pushed back and the legs dropped and the unit attatched to the counter. All fixed - - thank you PartSelect for having the right spring.
