SOURCE: Door falls open

I have had this issue TWICE now on a three year old dishwasher, and Sears charges you $150.+ to fix it. It is quite simple to fix, there is a special part that has all the pieces attached to it, except for the spring. You will have to remove the screws that are holding your dishwasher under the counter. This could be behind the rubber on the sides. I had to remove a gray plastic circle piece on the inside to see the screw (it pops right out, don't loose it!). Pull out the machine enough to see the out side- side. You will see a (plastic) white roller, string(rope), and a piece that attaches to the dishwasher. There is a number on the white plastic piece that looks like a L (it just slides out). Thess pieces are called the Dishwasher Door Balance Link. You will need to order these pieces, they are all inclusive, and come for both sides of the door, at a whopping price of $15.00. VERY simple to install. Attach one end to the spring, line up in roller then attach to the dishwasher. It is easier to look at it and follow what is on the dishwasher than me clearly explaining it. I feel that paying $1000.00 dollars for a dishwasher would warrant using metal pieces instead of substandard plastic, for this application. These door are very Heavy and like I have said I have replaced them twice with a waiting time of three weeks for the repair man. Please try it, you can do it.

I recently had the same problem. One of the cords that attaches the door to a spring had snapped. I purchased cord replacments at the following URL and completed the repair myself. http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1059756&PPStack=1

SOURCE: Have problem with door on Frigidaire Electolux

there is a spring that connects to the side of the door (both right and left) than connects to the holes on the bottom of the dishwasher frame. These springs have either fallen off or broken. To see the area where they connect you will need to remove the very bottom panels below the door. Look at the frame where the leg height adjustment screws are and you will see several holes in the frame the springs will most likely be right there and just need to be reconnected to the frame itself. If the springs are not there then the springs will more than likely be right at the bottom left and right side of the doors. These springs should be set in the 3rd hole back from the front if the door drop is still too fast set the spring further back on the frame.

Hope this helped

Hello Jodi, welcome to Fixya.

Based on your description what you`ve likey experienced is a broken door closer/link kit.

It is a fairly minor procedure to replace it/them. Slide the entire unit out from the cabinet a couple or three inches and you`ll see the plastic roller assembly and rope ( except yours is likey broke ) attached to the side.

**You`ll need to insure your connections will allow you to pull the unit out however, otherwise they - water, power, drain hose - must be disconnected to prevent any damage.**

If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.

The parts ( # 1059756 @ repairclinic ) come in a kit as I alluded to and will look like what I attached below...

0fda4f0.jpg


These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" or "apwagner.com" to name a few.

They range in price for around $20, or you can just purchase the rope/link seperately for about $4 part # 1159210 @ repairclinic.

I recommend replacing the entire kit, and check the spring itself...that is seperate from the kit ( # 830967 door spring @ repairclinic as well )

Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.

Please take a moment and rate the solution provided here or a testimonial if you feel warranted.

Let me know if you require further assistance and good luck.

macmarkus :)

Door springs are located at the left and right side of the door bottom. You will have to pull the unit a few inches from the installed location to see them. If broken, replace. If one slipped off, reattach.

My Blomberg dishwasher wont stop drain cycle


A common cause of this condition results from water in the base pan. This may result from a leak in the dishwasher or the drain hose (to the sink drain) backing up. First check the base pan (the very bottom assembly that all other components are mounted within) for any moisture - this can be difficult as there are only narrow openings between the tank and the base pan; a mirror can help or you might have to pull the unit out from the cabinet to access the sides. If there is moisture in the pan this problem must be corrected as the unit is just trying to protect against water damage from a leak. If the base pan assembly is dry, look at the float assembly (behind the water fill valve) as insects or rodents can sometimes interfere with the proper operation of this sensor. That causes the control to think there is a water leak. When this fault occurs everything is turned off and the drain pump runs continuously to eliminate any water from inside the dishwasher.

Dishwasher door falls open/no resistance as it opens. What broke?


the spring either came unhooked or otherwise fell off - you should be able to unhook the mounting bracket, lower the front legs and pull the machine out a bit -- BE CAREFUL TO SEE YOU HAVE ENOUGH LENGTH OF WATER LINE, DRAIN AND ELECTRICAL BEFORE YOU MOVE IT OUT - once you gain access, check alongside the machine you will find your problem..

Our Blomberg DW-35100 is not draining. We did have a service person in who fixed the problem temporarily. He took the bottom plate off the tub and told us water was present there which raised some float,...


If your Blomberg dishwasher will not drain, it might be the same problem that I had. The filter is a bad design and it lets a lot of debris through. The hose from the dishwasher to the main drain is very small and it gets plugged. Under the sink, loosen the clamps around the hose going into the main drain and take off the dishwasher hose. I use a screwdriver to push the debris through the small hose (that is attached to the big main drain hose) into the big one where it will be carried away. Then I turn on the dishwasher, hold the start button of the dishwasher for three seconds and shut the door. It drains like magic. The first time I did this, it took two hours to figure it out and now I can do it in three minutes. I am going to write to Blomberg now and see about this terrible filter system!

Door falls open


The side spring springs could have unhooked. Some springs connect to a nylon rope that slides over a plastic guide. The rope could also have snaped or slipped off the guide. You need to open the sides (normaly the back first) to check. This is easy to fix if you have the right tools...

Dishwasher door falls quickly


Go to partsselect.com they should have the parts and diagrams of the parts and where they go. Just type in model number. The part your looking for holds the door cable that attaches to the door sping. If you'll pull the dishwasher out you should be able to access it.

The door to the dishwasher is very hard to close. The door also falls down to the floor which makes the carriage/basket fall down as well.


sounds like one or both of your door links are broken check your hinges. you should ahave a large spring and a piece of rope that attaches to the door. let me know if this helps you
