How do i fix a broken spring on a dishwasher door


You will need to pull the dishwasher out about 12" to 18" to be able to get to the springs & rope links. Many dishwashers use a "rope link" to connect between the spring and the door hinge; and in others, the door springs connect directly to the door hinges. Once you pull the dishwasher out, you will easily see what broke and what you need to fixe it.

Front door opens too fast. it just drops. should there be a spring attached to the door?


If I remember correctly, there should be a spring underneath that regulates the door from just falling down. It has been a while, but here is what I remember. Take off the floor plate then the bottom cover. Usually two screws hold each (either 1/4", phillips, or 5/16" (8mm), depending on model). You can see under the unit from there. It should be a coil spring. If the loop has slipped off the door bracket, then just rehook it. If the loop has broken off, us some needle nose pliers and make the next coil a new loop. This is how it used to be done on older dishwashers, but haven't done any new ones.
Hope this helps

Frigidaire dishwasher Fdb4315lfc2 door


There are two springs that support the door and control the rate it falls and stops at. They are located at the base of the door. One on the left side and one on the right.

Slide the machine out. Usually held with screws directly into the underside of the counter. You may have to lower the unit by turning the feet. Most of the time you can just slide it out.

Look on the sides and you will see the springs. One or both will have come off. They should be hooked to a slot in the door hinge and the other end to a hole in the frame of the unit.

Over time they can become over stretched. If you put them back and the door drops too quickly and stops with a jar then replace the springs. Spring are springs so you can get them at a hardware store or parts supplier.


Hope this helps. Please rate this answer if it helps you.

Have problem with door on Frigidaire Electolux dishwasher. Door "falls open" rather than eases open.


there is a spring that connects to the side of the door (both right and left) than connects to the holes on the bottom of the dishwasher frame. These springs have either fallen off or broken. To see the area where they connect you will need to remove the very bottom panels below the door. Look at the frame where the leg height adjustment screws are and you will see several holes in the frame the springs will most likely be right there and just need to be reconnected to the frame itself. If the springs are not there then the springs will more than likely be right at the bottom left and right side of the doors. These springs should be set in the 3rd hole back from the front if the door drop is still too fast set the spring further back on the frame.

Hope this helped

The door to the dishwasher is very hard to close. The door also falls down to the floor which makes the carriage/basket fall down as well.


sounds like one or both of your door links are broken check your hinges. you should ahave a large spring and a piece of rope that attaches to the door. let me know if this helps you
