    For model number KUDA03CTBS2
    Hi Thomas, Thank you for the question. To prevent the door from falling down when opening, I suggest replacing the Door Balance Link Kit. Good luck with the repair!

    The door is very loud when i open or close it...i've ordered new springs, should that solve my problem?
    For model number KUDS01DLSS2
    Hello Patrick, Thank you for your inquiry. It could. The other things it could be are the door balance link kit part# 8194001 or the hinges part# WP8534854-left side and part# WP8534853-right side. Hope this helps!

    My soap dispenser isn't opening during the cycle. I can manually open it by pressing the release...seems a bit "sticky" but it opens by hand. what could it be?
    For model number KUDC20CVSS0
    Hi Bri, thank you for your question. It sounds like you have a physical problem with the dispenser. You would need to replace the entire part itself as the parts that make up your door and the latch are not sold separately. Good luck with your repair.

        The Door Just Falls Down
        After unscrewing the dishwasher, I pulled out the washer, I saw that the springs were attached just by strings that were broken... I just used the strings from an old lanyard, retied everything, and did not need the springs! works well!

        Door spring broke-Door falls down
        Remove the mounting screws that hold the dishwasher under the counter top. Remove dust cover plates at the bottom of the machine. The machine will have to be pulled out, so turn off the water to the machine. Usually under the kitchen sink. Disconnect water supply and push it out of the way so the dishwasher can be pulled out. Pull machine out enough so you have access to the door cables and springs. The door will have to be in the closed(up) position to do the repair. Usually only one side is broken. Start with the broken side and copy the working side when installing new parts. Then repair the working side. To get the working side apart just pull on the spring and disconnect it from the cable. Do the reverse to reinstall.

        Door spring broke-Door falls down
        Remove 2 screws on lower baseplate. Remove 2 screws that hold dishwasher inside cabinet( may be attached to counter top or side cabinets). Turn off water supply to dishwasher. Remove any connections such as water supply, electrical connection, or waste water line that prevent dishwasher from being pulled out about 3/4 of the way. With the dishwasher door closed, remove broken parts and replace with new parts. Pull on spring to make final connection of nylon cable. Reverse the above instructions for re-installing the machine.

        Door just fell down
        Hardest part was pulling dishwasher away from cabinet, making sure to not disturb water and drain line. I replaced both door springs which are on the two sides and attached to the dishwasher frame towards the back. This necessiatated pulling the dishwasher about 2/3 out of cabinet. After attaching both springs to frame, replacing the balance kit was a breeze .One screw to remove and then replace with new pulley unit. Attach the supplied cord with attached fittings to spring and then around two pulleys and mounting point on frame. Done . Push dishwasher back into cabinet, reattach two screws to underside of counter. Probably did not require new springs as they seem heavy duty and were not broken upon examination but ordered them also and replaced just in case. Most problem would be with broken cord in balance link kit

        Door balance cord failed
        Due to the way I installed the appliance originally it was not necessary to disconnect supply water nor the drain connections. When the cord broke the spring came out of the point of connection to the appliance. It some "finagelling" to reattach the spring.After some "select vocabulary" it hooked into the correct spot and the rest was history.
