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.

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.

How to install new door spring on portable dishwasher


Things You'll Need:
  • Owner's manual
  • Screwdriver
  • Replacement spring (optional)
  1. Turn off the power to your Kenmore dishwasher before attempting any repairs. If you have a portable Kenmore dishwasher, you can just unplug the power cord from the wall. Built-in dishwashers are hard-wired into the cabinet, so you will have to turn off the breaker switch at the home's circuit breaker box to cut the power.
  2. 2 Remove the screws that hold the kickplate onto the lower front of the Kenmore dishwasher. Take the kickplate off to access the door springs.
  3. Check the door springs to make sure they have not come loose from the door support or the adjustment holes on the dishwasher. Re-attach any ends that have slipped off their connections.
  4. Replace the springs if they are connected at both ends but still do not have enough tension to support the weight of the door. Once a Kenmore dishwasher door spring is stretched out, it cannot be restored to its original condition. Unhook one end of the old spring from the adjustment hole. Unhook the other end from the door support and discard the spring. Insert one end of the replacement spring into the adjustment hole and the other end into the hook on the door support.
  5. Open and close the door a few times to make sure the spring is now working properly. The door should not bounce up and down or sag on the hinges when it is in the open position.
  6. Restore power to your Kenmore dishwasher by plugging it back in or turning on the switch at the home's circuit breaker panel.

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.

Door has become stiff in operation and does not move up and down smoothly. is there an adjustment?


Most of the time the dishwasher door hinges are located on the framing at the bottom of the unit behind the kick plate. There should be a spring on either side with a series of small holes in the bottom framing. Move this spring closer to the door for less tension, further away for greater tension.

Dishwasher Door Tension Adjust on Electrolux EDW5500DSS


I just adjusted my Electrolux DW springs. The springs are on the bottom sides near the back. They pull on cables that hold the door (via pulleys). The springs can be moved to five different holes to change the tension, but I needed to pull the DW about 2/3 out for side access.

Door Tension


just about the most difficult job to do on a dishwasher, not normally a job for the home mechanic, i am an appliance engineer of 20 years and often shy away from jobs like this,

there is often no adjustment, the hinges are sprained, more often that not by people either putting weight on the door to stand back up, or children climbing on to get higher

the only thing i think you can do is to check the springs are in place and nothing is broken or just come off that can be put back?? sorry

Door catch


Right on the top edge of the machine - get a torch and look directly under the worktop - there are two hex-head screwws about 4" in from each side. Clockwise to increase spring tension.
