Door fell open and dishwasher wouldnt start with 2 blinking control lights

Unplug Dishwasher
Open Dishwasher door
remove all internal racks
cover drain area with towels
Slide dishwasher out from under counter.

1.) fixing door falling open.
Assess the good side rope path and replicate in mirror image on the broken side.
Replace the other side while in there.
This was an easy fix

2.) fixing dishwasher not starting
a.) remove screws which attach front panel. Support panel while doing this as it will fall off. punch screws into scrap carboard panel in the order / position they come out so you can easily get them back where they belong.

b.) remove upper screws which hold on black plastic control panel.

c.) remove panel, take pictures / make notes of wire positions and colors, this can be tough to get correct if you do not do this. Once all wire positions are documented, disconnect wiring harness. THIS IS THE MOST CRITICAL PART.

d.) pry out old button panel, be careful to not break the mounting tabs.

e.) connect new button panel to wiring, snap into place.

f.) reconnect all wires based on pictures notes.

g.) reattach all screws in the order they came out.

Door cord broke

Hardest part of job was sliding dishwasher out. Put in wood floors so limited free space. Had to lower fron foot pegs first, then remove 2 screws from top that held unit steady. Once dishwasher was out a good 16" cords were easy to replace. Did not replace bracket that came with kit. Cords attach to heavy duty spring.

Door drops - no balance

My 2 yr old sat on the dishwasher door while it was open. It snapped both the links on the door causing the dishwasher door to drop every time it was ajar. It was a real danger to the kids or to anyone else unaware of the door given its weight.

I ordered the part from Part Select based model and some of the posts that it was something you can do yourself. Park Select was outstanding as got the part next day and got direction from others (thank you). I did not have either side of the door working so no real gauge but finally understood how it worked once I did a search online for a picture.

Recommendation: if both links (rope) are broken, you will need to hunt down the springs on side/back of machine. The part with small hole connects to the spring, the other to the door. Make a reverse S with the rope through the pully system for tention. I did not initially do the reverse S and the part popped of the door once I closed it. Otherwise, easy thing to do and certainly do not need a repair person.....if you need picture, do a search on dishwasher door pully system
