SOURCE: bOSCH WASHING MACHINE RETAINING SPRING FOR FRONT DOOR GASKET

This is a two person job. The spring part of the metal ring goes at the 6:00 position (note the groove on the metal part of the machine). Fit the ring into the gasket as much as you can on the hinge side. While one person uses pliers to stretch the spring, another person uses a flat head screwdriver to move the ring into the gasket groove. The trick is to stretch the spring as straight and close to the machine as you can or else the ring pops off and the gasket has to be reset.

Broken door spring


This should not be hard to replace. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the dishwasher.

You need to buy a replacement spring (best to get the pair) which looks like this item.
BAUMATIC DISHWASHER TG5 DOOR SPRING for BDS461SS

To replace you need to locate the second spring on the other side of the dishwasher and remove it. The front base plate needs to be removed first to get access to the spring anchor points. Use a screw driver or a nose plier to grab it and dislodge. Always make sure the door is shut to ensure least tension in the springs. Put the two new springs and close the base plate.

Broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Hello,

Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

Our LG dishwasher is about a year old and the door use to stop about 1/3 open when you open it, Now the door just freely goes down and I am not sure why. Can you help?


Hi
Your machine should be under warranty as it is less than two years old. Call LG and see what they say.
Otherwise if you do not have warranty here is a possible solution...
LG Dishwashers have a rope attached to the bottom of both sides of the dishwasher door and the rope winds around a pulley fixed on the side wall/chasis. The other end of the rope is hooked to a spring tensioner which sits vertically along the side of the machine.
Either one or both ropes may have broken as the ends have a plastic catch which normally break. Sometimes they need tensioning or they fall out of the pulleys.
It is a major job to get to them and if you are prepared to do this you need to be handy.
In order to get to them you need to disconnect and pull the machine out. Remove top cover, either two screws at the back or in front depending on the model. Then remove plastic kick board in front bottom of machine. These are clipped on. When you remove this there is another white plastic front cover with front legs attached to it. Remove the front screws on either side to pull this part off. Sometimes the wire harnessing is attached to this part and you need to unscrew before you pull it out.
Once you remove this follow the screws all aound the side panels both in front and at the back of the machine to remove panels. When you remove these you can look at the sides. Open and close the door to observe the door pulley mechanism I described. If the rope is not torn, Just look to the top of the springs, there is a screw which gives more tension to the springs. Tighten the screws and see if this rectifies the problem. Otherwise you need to order the brocken parts.
Good luck

Door springs on Fisher & Paykel 920 dishwasher not working at all .How can they be replaced?


Hi - heres the instructions for you - have fun.....

Removal of Cabinet

(Do not use decorative panel to move the machine)

1. Isolate power supply.

4. Remove two screws from bottom sides of cabinet rear.

5. Remove the top screws on left and right hand sides of the cabinet rear.

6. Remove two screws securing the rear bottom panel.

7. Remove five screws securing the stainless steel frame to cabinet wrapper at front of machine. These are located behind the sound gasket and service panel.

8. Withdraw the cabinet assembly away from the machine.

Refitting: Refit in reverse manner. Fitting the top centre screw in the cabinet wrapper first, makes fitting the cabinet easier.


6.9 Removal of Door Tension Springs

(Do not use decorative panel to move the machine)

Location: The door tension springs are located either side of the machine and are

fitted to the chassis base and door quadrants by means of the end hooks of

these springs.

After isolating the machine from the power supply:

1. Ease machine forward for all round access.

2. Remove service panel (Refer Section 6.1).

3. Remove two screws in the cabinet wrapper exposed by the Service Panel.

4. Remove the springs from the quadrants and the chassis base using pliers.

Refitting: Refit in reverse manner.


6.10 Removal of Hinge Assemblies

(Do not use decorative panel to move machine)

Location: The hinge assemblies are located either side of the door and retained by means of two rivets on each side to the inner door panel.

After isolating the machine from the power supply:

1. Remove service & decorative panels (refer Section 6.1).

2. Remove outer door panel (refer Section 6.2).

3. Remove cabinet (refer Section 6.7).

4. Remove door tension springs (refer Section 6.8).

5. Remove quadrant grommets.

6. Open door fully and drill out the two rivets from the hinge assembly on inner door panel.

7. Hinge assembly can now be removed from inner door and cabinet.

Note: Hinges should be replaced one at a time. Repeat procedure six and seven for other hinge. Hinge guide quadrants can now be removed by depressing sides and pulling free of slot if need be.

Refitting: Refit in reverse manner using 3/16 monal rivets to secure the hinges to the inner door.

The cord you refer to is part of the door spring assembly, you need to take off the bottom panel and repair or replace the door spring or cable.

Door has no tension on it when opening it. It seems like a spring may be broke. How is the best way to go about checking it out and repairing it. Thanks Joey


Remove the front bottom access plate.
Look inside on the bottom right and left front corners for the spring and replace it in the grooves and slots from the door hinge to the cabinet base.
If the cabinet sides are in your way,you must remove the 2 screws mounting the machine to the underside of your counter top and pull the machine forward a few inches.
You should be able to do this without disconnecting water or power.
If the door spring is broken you will have to go to the appliance parts store in your area for another one.

Door Problem


There are set springs for the adjustment of the doors on the Bosch dishwashers. they are colour coded for different applications. They are accessed by laying the machine on its back and pulling the springs out of the base. first you will need to check that the nylon lines which attach the springs to the lower part of the door mechanisms are in place and this can also be done while the machine is on its back. or by first removing the side panels to access the door hinge mechanisms. If you have a custom cabinet panel on your machine it may be too heavy for the springs and new springs will have to be installed.
