Door hinge spring broken

My 14 year old dishwasher door got suddenly heavy and won't stop at 90 degrees. I have two conflicting opinions and an accusation of abuse from our Home Warranty carrier. Can this be fixed as the factory recommended folks claim?

Yes, it can be fixed. Sounds lilke just a matter of either fixing or replacing hinges/springs.

Door on my miele built in dishwasher is broken


First thing you need to do is SEARCH for "spares"
for your Miele G685sc

We don't seem to have "parts" for your G685sc here
in the USA...

but a casual look over BOSCH hinge and spring costs
show the hinge at $20 USD

AND

SPRING at $10 to $19 US Dollars...
Lower door gasket $20 to $30 USD

AT those prices I would attempt to avoid a "new"
dishwasher... When you are done trying to get a HEATER,
silence and stainless interior...
You are looking at BIG MONEY.

Check the FIT of the door... and health of the gasket(s)....

I'm just saying... I would
(it is the ULTIMATE in recycling).

My dishwasher door wont shut


see this causes, and use the common sense. God bless you
When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these: Latch Springs Hinges Door seal Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. Springs Your dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door. If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and you need to replace both springs. Hinges The hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can they be straightened well enough. Door seal If your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.

The dishwasher door spring has snapped, the door is heavy, can I fix it myself?


Yes, you can repair the unit yourself. It will require removing the dishwasher out of the cabinetry to get to the spring cable. The spring is not the problem but the connector between the door hinge and the spring is broken.
The part you need is 4933DD3001B. You will need 2 of them.
Hope this helps.

Yesterday opened the door to dishwasher, and heard a thud sound. Now the door weighs a ton. I believe a spring/bracket broke, but can find no evidence of it. The dishwasher is working...


Hello,

Either the door spring is broken or the linkage that ties the spring to the door hinge...the springs hook onto the leg/frame asm that supports the tub then the spring fit into that linkage and the liknage fits onto the door hinges.

This link is a parts breakdown for your model and item #6 is the spring and item #11 is the linkage..their is 2 of them (one on the left and one on the right) and its reccomended that both are replaced at the same time

Here is that link so are can get a good look of how and where they go http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-MDB4000AWA/3048/0130000/M0512217/00002?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=MDB4000AWA

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.

Jenn-Air electric wall oven door opens slightly when in bake mode


you either have a bent door hinge or a broken door spring.
check the hinges by opening the door and see if it opens past 90 degrees. if it leans towards the floor then the hinges are bent.
if not then your door springs are broken off. you can check this by seeing if the door "feels" heavy when opening.
either way the door should close tight against the frame when up and the light should not come on without opening the door.
