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.

Door falls open


The cables that are connected to the springs are broke, atleast one anyway. You'll need your model number off the machine to get them from a parts dealer. once you have them, pull the machine out a little ways and they install on the left and right side lower area.

I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher model # KUDSO2SFRSS. When I open the door it just falls to the floor. The spring has broke. Is that an easy repair, and can I buy the repair kit online?


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, I'd say you are correct ( yes you can get the parts on-line and I believe most homeowners aka do-it-yourselfers can repair this ). Either one or both of the door link kits/springs broken. It's an easy enough repair, though the unit does need to be pulled out, slightly
.

First, slide the entire unit out from the cabinet a couple or three inches and you`ll see the plastic roller assembly and rope ( except yours is likely broke...at least one by the sounds of your description ) attached to the side.

**You`ll need to insure your connections will allow you to pull the unit out however, otherwise they - water, power, drain hose - must be disconnected to prevent any damage.**

If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.

The parts ( # 1059756 @ repairclinic ) come in a kit as I alluded to and will look like what I attached below...

0fda4f0.jpg

These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

They range in price for around $20, or you can just purchase the rope/link seperately for about $4 part# 1159210 @ repairclinic.

I recommend replacing the entire kit and checking the spring itself, if it looks ok and not stretched or broke it is likely ok...they are seperate from the kit ( # 830967 door spring @ repairclinic as well )

Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today. Please take a moment and rate the solution provided here or a testimonial if you feel warranted.

Let me know if you require further assistance and good luck.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

they actually arent springs, it is a cable and has probably broken or come apart. You can order this part through KitchenAid and replace yourself. Or call a repair rep.

yep you can just get springs from lowes or home dept or your local hardware store; they're often in with the hardware (i.e., screws) and not plumbing. remember that the springs need to stretch out a bit, too; so you may end up buying springs that look shorter than they should, but they eventually habituate.
