Door malfunction


a door spring or the linkage that goes to the door is loose or broken on one side. pull the dishwasher out of the cabinet partway so you can see the where the door hinges are. you should be able to see what the problem is. compare both sides, one will be ok the other will not be tied to the spring.

The door on my Frigidaire dishwasher recently began opening too far. It slants toward the floor, a few degrees past level. Looking at it, however, nothing seems to be broken or missing. The springs are...


I have the same problem. The springs look intact. Maybe some stepped on the door when it was opened and it stretched the springs. I'm going to replace them and see what happens

Door opens all the way down does not stop


The door is very simple as you already know. The only adjustment is with the springs. If they are in place and the door still drops too low (and probably very quickly stopping with a jar) then the springs are over stretched. This does happen over time.

Take one off and go to a hardware store. Look for ones slightly shorter to replace. Springs are springs so if they fit you are good to go. Or go to a parts shop and purchase replacement parts.

Please rate if this helps you.

Door won't open slowly


Hi barrianne,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You're asking: On my Kenmore elite, on opening, suddenly the door just slams to the bottom without the gradual opening that it had before. And you have to really close it -- previously it would stay ajar 2 or 3 inches but now it will open all the way. Whatever was holding the door up and not in the down position is now kerplooie. Any suggestions?

You're not alone! This is very common. It is usually easy to repair if you have the technical skill and tools to remove the d/w to allow access to the springs on each side and properly reinstall. I don't recomend it to the average homeowner.You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!

KEMC308 Microwave oven door


Had the same problem and bought the part online. It's not difficult to replace, simply hold the door by the handle as you loosen the 2 screws. Put the face of the door on the floor and remove 2 screws holding the plastic insert. You will have to remove the front vent panel (2 Screws) just below the microwave door.Then you might have to move the oven vent over to get to the final 2 screws on the bottom of the plastic panel. Once you have the palstic panel off the springs are exposed, simply look at how it is placed in the holder before you remove the damaged one. Replace and then re-assemle the door.
