Hi, THe door springs are located behind the lower kick plate. Just remove the four screws that hold the panle on and you will see the springs and cables that help hold the door up.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

    Just a little more info-
    One of my cables broke, and the springs fell to the floor. Neither cable was attached to anything, as the assembly few apart, so I had to figure it out.

    There are 2 cables and two springs. The cable end with one hole slips over a small horizontal post at the lower side of the door, at the bottom. Holding the door open a couple of inches will expose the post and make it easy to install. Let the cable hang down and do the other side. Attach the two springs to the hanging end of one cable. You'll notice the cable on each end hangs near a plastic roller. The cables should be placed around these rollers as the springs are attached. You may find it easier to attached the springs to both cable ends and then pull the cable over the rollers.

My husband says not to keep the dishwasher door open (to let the dishes air dry) because the spring will stretch out. Is this accurate?


Depending on model and configuration of hinge assembly it is possible. BUT I would side with keeping the door open to save energy on the electric drying option! Also, I believe GE hinge assemblies actually relax the spring when fully open-so no strain would be on spring and cause to stretch. (This would take quite awhile anyway) Tell Hubby to Chill....;)

The GE Potscrubber 600 door feels too heavy - some hinge/cable/spring seems to have failed. How do I diagnose and fix it.


The door has a dual spring link with eyelet hooks at each end. I have the same problem. You can access it by loosening the four screws of the bottom panel. The eyelet wire is about 6 inches in length at each end of the dual springs. You run the wire around the 2 nylon wheels located at each end of the unit's bottom. They hook up to the small protrusion at the very end of the unit.
Hopes this helps.

The door falls


There are springs attached to the hinges and it is likely the one has broken.

I suggest that you take off the back of the door and check. Buy yourself replacement springs (replace both, because the one that is still OK is likely to break soon) and replace the old springs.

Dishwasher door drops hard when opened.


Sounds like one of the doors springs is broken or has come detached from the dishwasher housing frame. If you have a plain dishwasher door, ie one that does not have a wood panel matching your cabinets, and the spring(s) are broken, new springs cost about $20. If you have wood panel on the dishwasher door, then you may need heavy duty replacement spring at about $22.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out after disconnecting the water pipe and power.

Simply make a new loop on the broken spring or buy new ones from an appliance dealer and reconnect the spring.

Granddughter stood on dishwasher door and now it goes down too far when opening. Spring assembly (pulley type) is FINE...but door goes so far down bottom shelf nearly breaks dishes when pulling out


This happens when people leave the door down, I've seen it many, many times, sometimes the door/hinge assembly can be replaced or even bent back, sometimes it totals out the unit...Good luck !
