    Same problem of my Kitchenaid dishwasher. The model number is
    KUDI01FLSS6. I can see the cable(rope) is broken. Where can I get the part if I want to try to fix it myself.
    By the way, my wife said that nobody will fix it anymore. Either you buy a new dishwasher or leave it alone. Is that true? Thanks.

Either a spring or a door cable. On newer Kitchenaids and Whirlpools, it is usually a "cable" made of rope and plastic that breaks, not the spring itself. Get me the complete model number and I will look it up for you...

Dor hinge repair


I fixed my Fagor disgwasher spring last night. The symptom was a bang and the door got heavy. Investigation revealed a broken cord. The parts are available at around 20 UK pounds per pair. They consist of a cord with plastic mouldings at each end. A heavy duty spring sits inside the washer parallel to the door bottom and is streched as the door is opened. I would not recommend buying the spares as getting them off the spring is almost impossible. I had a vice with tools and gave up. Instead I bought some similar cord (try a ships chandler/dinghy shop), one metre should do (99p). Remove the spring and cut the cord off at the moulding. Put the spring in a vice and drill out the cord. Start small (2mm) and work up. Put the new cord through the hole. Bend the spring and use a small screwdriver to fish out the cord. Tie a knot in it. Take a large flatblade screwdriver and open up the coils so the knot will pass through. Drill the other plastic moulding and repeat. The cord length between the mouldings was 280mm but measure the unbroken one. The dishwasher I had a cover clipped in place at the bottom of the door. Lever this forward and the spring is easy to remove.

I have an Indesit DV62WHUK dishwasher and the last night the door made a banging sound when it was opened and now it won't close and will fall back under it's own weight. I suspect either a spring, spring...


There is a plastic unit behind the door handle which houses a spring under tension. This latches the door closed and makes the electrical connection to allow the machine to work properly. You need to buy a new unit (£15) which is a bit fiddly to reach but easy to fit (2 screws)

Dishwasher door drops hard when opened.


Sounds like one of the doors springs is broken or has come detached from the dishwasher housing frame. If you have a plain dishwasher door, ie one that does not have a wood panel matching your cabinets, and the spring(s) are broken, new springs cost about $20. If you have wood panel on the dishwasher door, then you may need heavy duty replacement spring at about $22.

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle


There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

Loud bang during spin


Remove the top of the machine and check if the centralising spring/s is/are still attatched. Next remove back cover or tilt machine back and inspected the shock absorbers. One of the shockies could be broken or just pulled out of the guide. If springs and shockies are ok open the door and try to move the inner drum up, down and sideways. If it is very loose, then the centre bearing is worn.
