SOURCE: 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

the tension springs are quite easy to replace. they are mechanical, so you should be able to just take them off and replace them with the new ones.

SOURCE: 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

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.

There should be tension from the spring that pulls the door hook down. If there is no tension, the anchor for the spring has broken off and the outer door frame must be replaced.

Change springs on garage door


It's is straight forward. Select a replacement spring with the same tension color as the original spring. The color is applied to one of the hooks. Above all thread the safety wire through the center of the spring.

Tool skips


Hitachi coil roofing nailer will skip nails if the piston oring is worn, the feed spring is weak or lower bumper is cracked. Easy to check. Remove nails and air supply. With side door open point nose of gun up then down again. If the piston moves up and down in the cylinder, replace the piston oring. If piston does not move and is in the up position, check the feed spring for tension. With air supply removed and door open, slide feeder back and press on feeder from door side to check tension. It should spring back to position against rails.If is feels loose, replace spring and retainer pin if the pin is worn. If piston oring is good, and the feeder has good spring tension, suspect lower bumper and the plastic part below the bumper called the "sheet". Remove head and pull the cylinder to examine lower bumper. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good luck with your repair

Apparently the springs on my door are either not connected or they need to be adjusted. If I were to open the door and not hold it with my hands, it would immedaitely fall wide open. No tension exists on...


I had the same problem on my Dishwasher . There should be 2 screws underneath the top front part of the dishwasher. They hold the unit in place. Easy to get to. Open the door and look up. Pull out the 2 screws that are screwed into the underneath of the front cabinet.

This should allow you to pull (slide) out the unit just enough to see the springs ( aprox 1 ft ) on both sides on the bottom of unit. Inspect the springs. Mine had broke on one side where it clips into the holder.

I just inserted the spring in the proper tension hole to match the other side . I spun it around 1 turn as to hold it in place and then connected the top of spring it its proper place. This gave equal tension on both springs and the door works fine now.

Eventually I will buy a new spring and replace it but at least it works fine for now.

If even one spring has been disconnected the door will fall with out any tension what so ever. I'm guessing maybe just one spring has either come out or broke where it clips into the hole.

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.

Remove the front panel by removing the screws located on the inside of the door (note hold door inplace, since it is heavy and will fall out after screws removed). Unscrew screws located on bottom of plastic retainer (2 each) Remove tension spring. Note 2 are included right and left. Note color of spring on end, different springs for different door types, stainless, black,beige or white. Replace all in reverse order.

I am unable to have the door close fully


Sometimes those springs hang on a hook with "notches" so that you can increase the tension by moving to a higher notch. If they don't have any adjustment on them, and you just put a replacement spring on I'd start looking other places for the problem first. If you got the closest springs they had at the hardware store, then you can increase the tension by curling down (thus shortening) the hook ends of the spring with long nose pliers. On a strong spring like an oven spring this will be kind of difficult.

Make sure there isn't any rubbing or other problem going on with the hinges... sometimes just a couple drops of 3 in 1 oil will do the trick.

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.
