The door springs are attached to the bottom of each side of the door. You have to pull the dishwasher out far enough to see the area or all the way out if you have sides on yours. It hooks on the door and another hook on the washer frame.

My Dishwasher door has suddenly become very heavy, there is a cord hanging down on left hand side its a HJA8630 about 5 years old can you help

The cord you refer to is part of the door spring assembly, you need to take off the bottom panel and repair or replace the door spring or cable.

The door of my Miele G646 SCI semi-integrated dishwasher has suddenly become stiff to move up or down. I am guessing there is a problem with the spring? Any suggestions what to try or how to get access?

Most probably the decor door has swollen and catching on adjoining cabinets. removed decor door via two screws down the left and right hand side of door and see if that helps. If springs snaps then the door will drop very quickly and take the skin off you shins

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

If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue

Dishwasher ''soft drop door'' mechanism came apart - door now drops

I had a similar issue as described by mc1bean. One day my Jenair dishwasher door just fell down. The right side spring was fine. The left side spring was still hooked into the door hinge but the cable was laying on the floor in 2 pieces. Over time it wore down and broke. I ordered just the soft drop cable. Now I could not find any installation instructions how to install the soft drop cable. After a few tries I think I got it right. Here are the instructions for hooking up the right side spring with the cable. The spring has to be hooked into the door hinge at the notch closer to the door. The end of the cable with the hook has to be hooked into the other side of the spring. The cable should lead from the bottom around the pulley up to the door hinge again. Now the other end of the cable has to be hung into the door hinge on the notch further away from the door. There is some slack, but it is not quite enough for the cable to get over the pulley when in rest position and undo itself.
I hope this helps others who have the same issue.

Door spring is not connected

look at the other side,it is the same,the cable should go around a pulley then terminate at a flat piece of metal with 4 to 5 slots,(the spring goes here)the slots are to adjust the tension on the door .hope this helps.

Hoover dishwasher door

A metal bad with a spring on each end is used to couner balance the door. Take off the curved plastic moulding at the front bottom 2 screws at front and 2 underneath.
Then remove as many screws as you can that secures the left hand casing you just need to get to left hand side near the bottom.
Once there you can check if both springs are secure it is probable that one of these has become dislodged you can get some pliers and bend the hooks better so that it will not happen again.

Door problem

on my machine there is a torx screw at the top left hand side. You need to open the door to see the screw which sits behind the off-white flange (look for a hole in the flange).
