How do i fix a broken spring on a dishwasher door


You will need to pull the dishwasher out about 12" to 18" to be able to get to the springs & rope links. Many dishwashers use a "rope link" to connect between the spring and the door hinge; and in others, the door springs connect directly to the door hinges. Once you pull the dishwasher out, you will easily see what broke and what you need to fixe it.

Door is broken


Hello Hickin! It would appear that one, or both of the door springs which act as a counter-balance for the weight of the door, have broke.

To confirm this and get at the spring(s), close and lock the wash compartment door and use a screwdriver (might be a 1/4" or 5/16" nut driver instead) to remove the lower panel.

Once you have the lower panel off, you should be able to see the door springs on each side. You'll probably also see part of the broken spring lying in there too. If the door spring broke near the end by the hook, it is possible to TEMPORARYILY bend the spring with a set of channel locks and pliers to form a new hook end, that you can attach to the door clip. If the spring is broke near the middle, you'll need to get a new one.

Regardless, you'll need to locate the model number for your dishwasher and obtain a replacement spring ASAP, as the temporary repair will only work for a short while before the spring breaks again.

You might want to try Fagor at their site to see what the part number for the replacement spring is. http://www.fagoramerica.com/

The other option with your model number is to try the Sears part web site, which shows a line drawing and parts list for most applianances.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

This repair is relatively easy for anyone to undertake and you can save yourself the cost for a service tech's labor charges, plus the trip/house charge they normally tack on.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Where can I buy the cable repair kit for my Kitchenaid dishwasher


OK, pretty easy fix. Look at diagram 10 here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5164885

The link (#24) probably broke and the spring (#18) probably shot off and is lying somewhere behind the dishwasher. Just pull out the dishwasher (careful not to disconnect or crimp any of the hoses) and check to see if both springs (one on each side) can be located. Just replace the old links and re-hook the springs and all should be well.

You can order the link replacement (part #8194001) from kitchenaid at 1-800-422-1230.

Dishwasher problems


Can't say for certain, as you don't list a brand or model number, but most have the springs on each side of the outer tub. (you will have to pull dishwasher at least partway out of the cabinet to access them) Some have a set of springs behind the access / toe kick panel. (DW removal unnecessary for these)
