Hi I have a 1998 chevy s10. the same parts fit I replaced the same bushing and had the same thing happen to me. What you have to do is put the next size bushing in because the hole that the bushing fit in will get larger over time good luck .From Andrew Toney
The top hinge has a spring to close door. You can see a pin in a hole on top against a stop pin. Removing pin and winding up the hinge spring helps, find an Allen wrench that fits the other holes to assist. If winding one direction makes worse go the other direction. A new hinge may be in order. I can get you one if you need it. Wmontg5988@yahoo.com
To get the door off you have to take out the door pins. The top pin goes in upwards and the bottom pin downward. Make sure you put a jack under the door frame to ease pressure on the pins. Tap pins lightly to remove them. Just like a house door. You will need new bushings. If you find that the bushings are not fitting snug to the hinge, loose, you may need to drill the hole out a bit bigger, and use an over sized pin and bushing to replace it. Good luck, I hope this helps, please rate this solution
The hardest part is going to be to reinstall the spring on the lower hinge arm. this is not a screw but rather a pin. There are two hinges that hold the door to body. when the upper and lower pins are removed the door will come away from body, it is important that before you remove the pins you take a look at the hinges. Pay close att. to the way the hinges sit inside each other and the way the pins go in. see if they go from top to bottom or from bottom to top. also note where the copper bushings sit in hinges. each hinge has one pin and two copper bushings top go into hinge. Over time the pins and bushings wear out ,making door hard to open and close. When the pins and bushings get so bad that the bushing is worn out and then the pins are now wearing into the hinge hole itself then this get tricky. if hinge hole is egg shaped the new bushings will not last. the door will hang again in a few weeks. this is where is get costly, the hinges now need replacing. i have gotten good at welding the holes and filing them back to shape but this takes skill or hole will be wrong and bushing will not fit or line up.
Here is a youtube video to help you. Take note. put jack stands under door with cloth to avoid scratching door.this is to hold door when pins are removed. have somone help you, they will hold door on stands. the wires will still run through door, pull door away from body a little to allow room to work.remove the spring, it will fall out as you remove pins, remove old bushings, clean hinge area and holes,next install new bushings, apply lube to holes for pins and on bushings, slide door back on frame hinges and install pins, next slide lock washers on pins to hold pins. last is the spring. you will need a spring tool, you may rent one at auto parts store. hope this helps good day.
You can buy a hinge repair kit at most good auto parts stores.
You will have to support the door while open, and remove the pin from the bad hinge. Most kits then require you drill a hole where the pin was and press in a bushing. Reinsert the pin (or the new pin if your kit came with it) and remove whatever was supporting your door.
This can be done with one person if you're careful, but it's easier if you have a helper to keep control of the door.
You can also remove the hinge completely on certain vehicles, allowing to repair the hinge at a workbench.
Your model of washer could have either type of motor fitted.
It is a FHP motor, it will say so, if it is a GDA motor, you will find no name on it.
Also the FHP type brushes are in holders that are secured by screws, whereas the GDA motor carbons are push in type holders, so it should be easy for you to identify which type is fitted.

Open the door fully. Remove the door by unscrewing the two screws in the hinge. You will need a T20 star bit/screwdriver for that. Place the door face down on a flat surface. Remove the 6 screws (Phillips) holding the inner door ring. Starting from the hinge side, gently prize off the inner ring. Its a bit like taking the lid off a Tupperware. Remove carefully and take the glass and the pespex window out. With a pair of fine plyers gently remove the brass pin holding the door latch assembly in place. TAKE NOT OF THE POSITION OF ALL THE PARTS. Note that the brass pin has a ridged section and the orientation of the catch and spring. Remove the handle from the front of the door and replace. Rebuild in reverse order. Getting the pin back in is tricky. First line up the pin and the handle and the spring. Push in the pin using a gentle twist and push motion. When one side is in place ease the metal catch under the sping and line up with the pin. Once all thats in place keep twisting and pushing the pin until about 3mm is showing. If at this point you are tempted to take a hammer to it, either call a service engineer or retire to the pub for a couple of hours. Next is easy. Put the perspex window in place (convex outermost), sit the glass on top of it with the thicker part to the bottom. Fit the inner ring over the latch and jiggle it til all the parts sit comfortably. Tupperware the face back on, replace the six screws and refit the door onto the washer.
SOME HINGES HAVE A HOLE THROUGH THEM TO LOCK THE HINGE IN THE "BROIL STOP POSITION" THAT WILL MAKE IT ALOT EASIER TO REINSTALL THE DOOR. SOME HINGES HAVE A BUILT IN LEVER THAT YOU FOLD INTO THE JOINT OF THE HINGE, LOCKING IT IN PLACE. IF THE HINGE CAME OFF WITH THE DOOR, THERE ARE TWO PINS THAT THE HINGE HAS TO HOOK BACK OVER WHEN INSERTED INTO THE HOLES IN THE FRONT OF THE RANGE. FIND THE CORRECT ANGLE TO ENGAGE THE HINGES CORRECTLY.
IF THE HINGES ARE ATTACHED TO THE RANGE, PULL THEM OPEN TO THE BROIL STOP POSITION. THEY NORMALLY WILL HANG IN THAT POSITION. USE YOUR KNEE TO SUPPORT THE DOOR AS YOU SLIDE IT BACK OVER THE HINGES.
