How do I fix or replace the door spring in a Miele G6892 dishwasher?


Step 1: Get Access to the Door Spring Remove the lower panel under the door. Normally, two screws keep the panel in place. These screws are located on top of or below the panel. There are cases wherein you have to initially open the dishwasher door to be able to remove the screws. The door should then be closed in order to remove the panel.
Step 2: Remove Springs To remove the springs, the hook of the spring should be lifted from the anchor point. Use your fingers to do so. If there is a large amount of tension, it's best to use a screwdriver or pliars. Position the shaft under the hook and then pull it down. After pulling down, try lifting the anchor. To make things easier, try locating a leverage point. This should help the screwdriver force the spring out. Be certain to remove the spring from all of its anchor points.
Step 3: Installation of New Springs To install a new spring, you initially have to deal with the positioning of the lower spring hook. It should be placed within the first hole. Take note of the adjustment bracket when doing this. Follow the previous set up. If the spring needs more tension, try positioning the spring hook further towards the back of the adjustment bracket. The end of the spring for the counter balance of the door should be mounted on the door support. Find the slot on the support. Replace all covers and door panels. Test the door to check for any problems.

Broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Hello,

Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

Broken door spring


This should not be hard to replace. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the dishwasher.

You need to buy a replacement spring (best to get the pair) which looks like this item.
BAUMATIC DISHWASHER TG5 DOOR SPRING for BDS461SS

To replace you need to locate the second spring on the other side of the dishwasher and remove it. The front base plate needs to be removed first to get access to the spring anchor points. Use a screw driver or a nose plier to grab it and dislodge. Always make sure the door is shut to ensure least tension in the springs. Put the two new springs and close the base plate.

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 665.16493300 door falls to floor when opening


Door springs are located at the left and right side of the door bottom. You will have to pull the unit a few inches from the installed location to see them. If broken, replace. If one slipped off, reattach.

913T Dishwasher Stops after 10 seconds


913T is a very old model (1996), I have one, I'm not a repairer, I have the same fault. It doesn't have drawers or infrared or a display.
I've just shortened the ribbon cable, which had pinch damage at the door close pinch point. I used a male & female ribbon squeeze connector pair to make a good clean joint. With the cable fault it wasn't even starting the drain cycle. Now it does start, but then long beeps, and I suspect it's detecting a fault with the motor or a sensor or faulty wire, and is halting.
I've found running the rinse cycle first then allows the main wash cycle to run, no longer stopping at 10 seconds (after the initial drain), just as the first power wash commences.

Door spring has gone slack and the door falls heavily. Any advice?


Remove the bottom access plate. Reach inside and find the spring and re-attach it. If the spring is broken buy a replacement spring. There should be 2 springs,one on each side.

Spring on door is broke. do I need to pull


The door springs are located at each door hinge and connect to the frame body along each side of the dishwasher. If you remove the lower toe panel directly below the door you should be able to see them. However, in order to access them to repair/replace you WILL need to pull the dishwasher out to get to them in most cases. You may not have to remove the dishwasher all they way, however, if you have enough slack in the water supply line, power cord and drain line. Just follow these steps:

1. Turn off the main power or unplug dishwasher.
2. Remove lower toe panel.
3. Remove the screws under the counter top holding the dishwasher in place.
4. With the screws removed, carefully pull the dishwasher out. Watch through the toe panel opening to see if you have enough slack in the power cord and water lines.

You may have enough clearance to locate the springs on the each side to make your repairs. If not, you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the water supply line on the left hand side inside toe panel. You may also have to remove the electrical lines inside the junction box inside the toe panel. It is usually located right in front for easy access. Make sure the power is turned off at the breaker, or the unit is unlugged before servicing the electrical supply. For reinstallation, the color codes are as follows:

BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN (or Bare) - GROUND

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Where can I buy the cable repair kit for my Kitchenaid dishwasher


OK, pretty easy fix. Look at diagram 10 here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5164885

The link (#24) probably broke and the spring (#18) probably shot off and is lying somewhere behind the dishwasher. Just pull out the dishwasher (careful not to disconnect or crimp any of the hoses) and check to see if both springs (one on each side) can be located. Just replace the old links and re-hook the springs and all should be well.

You can order the link replacement (part #8194001) from kitchenaid at 1-800-422-1230.
