Question about Dishwashers
I would like to increase the spring tension on the door of my Electrolux EDW5500DSS dishwasher. An installation manual references a door spring tension adjustment bracket, but it is not visible. I removed the outer panel screws from the front and can pry back the panel an inch or so, but it appears like the unit uses some type of spring and hydraulic mechanism which reaches from the bottom of the door toward the top of the dishwasher on the side. Is there an accessable way to adjust it without uninstalling the whole unit?
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.

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
