Your spring is hooked onto a cable to help ease the door down. It must have come loose. You'll have to open the door panel and panel under the dishwasher... and possibly have to pull the whole thing out to find the problem... only then can you tell if something is bent or broke.

I have an 06 pt cruiser when I bought it couldn't open door from inside. Suddenly door opens from inside and window won't come down what's the problem


Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the power and ground at the master switch mount in the dash. Pin 12 is power at key on and pin 4 is the ground.

2. Next try driving the left front window by applying power to pins 13 and 14, switch polarity should drive the window up and down. If not, check for broken wires in the between "A" pillar and the door, then gain access to the window motor and try applying right at the motor.
Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the outside door handle switch. It should ground the Orange/Yellow wire when the handle is raised. Tech Tips: The power window should drop slightly whenever the door is opened. The ensures a tighter seal to the convertible top.

My lg dishwashers door will drop open suddenly


If it is sudden opening during cycle then it is due to pressure build up inside the dishwasher is forcing the door to open.

a) Most likely your door latch is not holding proper enough. Quite common on LG.

b) May be your vent in the dishwasher is blocked so the pressure inside cannot get out. If vent blocked you have plate drying problems too.

c) Is the dishwasher leveled properly. Is it leaning to the front. This will be that extra help for the door to open when pressure build up inside the dishwasher.

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.
