Bosch dishwasher door tension


Most dishwashers have big springs that run front to back at the bottom sides of the body. These are the door springs. Tension is adjusted by moving the spring to one of several holes in the frame. One way will give you less tension on the door the other way will increase it. If the dishwasher is new, why not call service and let them deal with it. Should be under warranty.

We have a 301HT and the door is not staying at the 90 degree angle it should hold at. The door is coming too far down and putting additional pressure on the bolts inside. How can we fix this?


The manual will show a bushing under the adjusting nut at door frame opening that holds the door from dropping too far. This bushing usually breaks and disintegrates. Bushing is just over 1" long. Check both bushings on each side of door opening of machine.

The door on my miele G481 built in dishwasher won't stay open it's really annoying that it keeps popping up when I'm trying to load.


hi,

what you need to do is slack off the spring tension on the door hinges. each side of the unit at the base on the plinth there is a screw with a spring symbol next to it. turn this anti clockwise to reduce the spring tension.

Hope this helps

Adjusting door spring tension on a Bosch dishwasher


underneath are 2 L-brackets with the springs attached. Pull those out (with the door closed) and tension will be released. Shorten the strings attached to the springs and reinsert the L-brackets.

Dishwasher Door Tension Adjust on Electrolux EDW5500DSS


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.

Door Tension Adjustment on Electrolux Dishwasher


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

Adjusting the door on a neff dishwasher


I have the same problem with my newly installed Miele integrated dishwasher. The door does not stay open when you are trying to load dishes. I heard that there is an adjustable internal mechanism to adjust the tension on the door. But, I am still working on solving my problem.

DOOR TENSION


open the dishwasher and look at the top of the chassis, where the door catch is. You'll see 2 screws with hexagonal heads, one on either side of the catch. Turning these screws will apply or reduce tension on a wire liked to a spring on either side of the door. Tension must be equal on both sides.
