Door Tension Adjustment on Electrolux Dishwasher

I would like to increase the spring tension on the door of my Electrolux EDS5500 dishwasher. An installation manual references a door spring tension adjustment bracket, but it is not visible. Is there an accessable way to adjust it without uninstalling the whole unit?

You should be able to remove the lower acess panel, and the tension springs are on both sides, cant really picture how to adjust tension( font or back), but there should be enough room to get a flashlight and you hands under there to make the adjustment

Bosch dishwasher door tension


Most dishwashers have big springs that run front to back at the bottom sides of the body. These are the door springs. Tension is adjusted by moving the spring to one of several holes in the frame. One way will give you less tension on the door the other way will increase it. If the dishwasher is new, why not call service and let them deal with it. Should be under warranty.

Door hinge tension adjustment


You have to change the springs at the bottom back.It; s easy.You must buy the item 0509 at this page or anyother you like http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Bosch-Parts/All-Products-Parts/Model-SHX45P05UC60/1794/0130000/1010702P/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
Then you must access the bottom side of the base of dishwasher and with a screwdriver pull off the old springs.After this you will see a cordon that you must remove it and connect this to the new springs.

Fisher/p nemo dishwasher door


it is sometimes linked to the dishwasher not level or the spring tension on one side getting weak. Refer installation manual http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/c11d2c17-cb0a-489c-99bf-a61513fbf876.pdf to make sure the level is adjusted. May need to replace the door seal in case leak is too excessive.

My dishwasher door will not stay up unless locked. I have installed new springs, to no avail


Might help with solution if you provide make and model number of dishwasher.

Sometimes the solution is a simple as ensuring the dishwasher is level so that the door shuts. The spring tension may need adjustment and usually there are a few screws at the top of dishwasher panel. Depends on make and model.

it is very likely the dishwasher is not levelled correctly or the springs in the door are too tight. Refer installation manual to check dishwasher levlelling and door spring is adjusted correctly. Please provide dishwasher make and model if you do not have the installation manual.

4. Remove the springs from the quadrants and the chassis base using pliers.

Refitting: Refit in reverse manner.


6.10 Removal of Hinge Assemblies

(Do not use decorative panel to move machine)

Location: The hinge assemblies are located either side of the door and retained by means of two rivets on each side to the inner door panel.

After isolating the machine from the power supply:

1. Remove service & decorative panels (refer Section 6.1).

2. Remove outer door panel (refer Section 6.2).

3. Remove cabinet (refer Section 6.7).

4. Remove door tension springs (refer Section 6.8).

5. Remove quadrant grommets.

6. Open door fully and drill out the two rivets from the hinge assembly on inner door panel.

7. Hinge assembly can now be removed from inner door and cabinet.

Adjusting door spring tension on a Bosch dishwasher


underneath are 2 L-brackets with the springs attached. Pull those out (with the door closed) and tension will be released. Shorten the strings attached to the springs and reinsert the L-brackets.
