How do I adjust the springs on the door of a Frigidaire dishwasher Model # FDB24?


Springs run down both sides of the dishwasher from the door hinge to the back leg area of the frame at the bottom leg area. You adjust the spring/door tension but moving the spring to different holes in the frame area. Going one direction in the holes will loosen the door, going the other direction will make the door tighter.

Bosch dishwasher door tension


Most dishwashers have big springs that run front to back at the bottom sides of the body. These are the door springs. Tension is adjusted by moving the spring to one of several holes in the frame. One way will give you less tension on the door the other way will increase it. If the dishwasher is new, why not call service and let them deal with it. Should be under warranty.

What could be causing the door latch to release late in the wash cycle of my Kenmore Ultra dishwasher?


The door spring tension might be causing the door latch to become disengaged. Check the level of the dishwasher and also adjust door spring tension. Will need model number to provide more details.

Adjusting door spring tension on a Bosch dishwasher


underneath are 2 L-brackets with the springs attached. Pull those out (with the door closed) and tension will be released. Shorten the strings attached to the springs and reinsert the L-brackets.

Door has become stiff in operation and does not move up and down smoothly. is there an adjustment?


Most of the time the dishwasher door hinges are located on the framing at the bottom of the unit behind the kick plate. There should be a spring on either side with a series of small holes in the bottom framing. Move this spring closer to the door for less tension, further away for greater tension.

Dishwasher Door Tension Adjust on Electrolux EDW5500DSS


I just adjusted my Electrolux DW springs. The springs are on the bottom sides near the back. They pull on cables that hold the door (via pulleys). The springs can be moved to five different holes to change the tension, but I needed to pull the DW about 2/3 out for side access.

Door Tension Adjustment on Electrolux Dishwasher


you should be able to remove the lower acess panel, and the tension springs are on both sides, cant really picture how to adjust tension( font or back), but there should be enough room to get a flashlight and you hands under there to make the adjustment

Adjusting the door on a neff dishwasher


I have the same problem with my newly installed Miele integrated dishwasher. The door does not stay open when you are trying to load dishes. I heard that there is an adjustable internal mechanism to adjust the tension on the door. But, I am still working on solving my problem.

Door Tension


just about the most difficult job to do on a dishwasher, not normally a job for the home mechanic, i am an appliance engineer of 20 years and often shy away from jobs like this,

there is often no adjustment, the hinges are sprained, more often that not by people either putting weight on the door to stand back up, or children climbing on to get higher

the only thing i think you can do is to check the springs are in place and nothing is broken or just come off that can be put back?? sorry
