You need to write down the model number of your dishwasher and seek a local supplier who carries the hinge replacement for that model. It will likely take a while to order the part. You might want to try online. I remember a good dishwasher repair guide site at
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Appliance_Zone_Dishwasher.htm

I think they offer a link to seek four free estimates from appliance contractors who may be able to fix it faster--since they might have the part on hand.

How do i fix a broken spring on a dishwasher door


You will need to pull the dishwasher out about 12" to 18" to be able to get to the springs & rope links. Many dishwashers use a "rope link" to connect between the spring and the door hinge; and in others, the door springs connect directly to the door hinges. Once you pull the dishwasher out, you will easily see what broke and what you need to fixe it.

PDW8100 Dishwasher went through cycle several times, but I am unable to open the door. Is there a way to get it open? Thanks, Barbara


Hi,

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.

Goodluck..

How to fix door on hobart lxih dishwasher?


Check the door hinges.. if a hinge is broke or the door came off the hinge it won't shut.... now if the door won't stay closed then the tension bar that is on the door, connecting to the hinges is broke and you will have to replace it

My KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.


I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

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

Dishwasher is Haier ESD300. I had just started to open the door and heard a loud "pop" kind of sound. The door just falls down with no resistance now. There is a string, yes a string, hanging from the left...


You'll have to slide the dishwasher out from under the cabinet to get a better look at the hinge cable system and you should be able to look at the other hinge to see what broke. could be the cable itself or the spring or a retainer. You will not know until you compare to other hinge. After you find the problem you can go to www.repairclinic.com and they may have the part and the picture if not you can talk to a person live chat. Hope this helps
