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.

SOURCE: 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.

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

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

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.

Door hinge tension adjustment


You have to change the springs at the bottom back.It; s easy.You must buy the item 0509 at this page or anyother you like http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Bosch-Parts/All-Products-Parts/Model-SHX45P05UC60/1794/0130000/1010702P/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
Then you must access the bottom side of the base of dishwasher and with a screwdriver pull off the old springs.After this you will see a cordon that you must remove it and connect this to the new springs.

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.
