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.

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.

I have a KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS2 and was wondering if it is normal for the door to fall open... what I mean is the door requires to be supported when opening. Otherwise, the door will swing down and almost...

Yes indeed that sounds exactly like the door springs being broken. The springs are fairly easy to replace, what needs to be done to replace the springs is remove the lowest service panel/kick plate and hook the springs on the tub support frame/leg and the other end goes on a notch in the door hinges. The part number for the spring is 8270182 they could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

Even though only one may be broke its advisable to replace both at the same time.

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your dishwasher,

I want to fit a wooden door to a intagrated dishwasher stoves

If your dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif door is not closing properly or has developed a leak, it may be time to replace the entire door assembly. Some other signs of a defective door include sagging, difficulty pulling the door back up into a closed position and a door that feels heavier as it drops open. Replacing a dishwasher door is not that hard, but includes several springs and hinges that must be aligned correctly or the door will not fit correctly in the opening.
  1. tep 1 Unplug the dishwasher and shut off the water before attempting to remove any parts. If you cannot reach the electrical outlet, you can turn off the breaker switch that controls the electricity for the kitchen. Remove the drain hose that runs from the dishwasher unit to the sink drain.
  2. Step 2 Pull the dishwasher out from the cabinet until you have clear access to the side of the unit. Ask a friend for help with this part if the unit is too heavy for you to slide out without straining your back.
  3. Step 3 Check your dishwasher's owner's manual to find out exactly how the outer door panels are removed. Some models have a two-panel door where the control panel must be removed before the lower panel will come off. Otherwise, the door panel should be one solid piece or a two-piece assembly that allows the lower section to be removed separately to access the springs and hinges.
  4. Step 4 Remove the springs at the bottom of the door. Depending on the type of dishwasher you have, there may be a tension adjustment dial or simply a series of holes at different distances from the edge of the unit. If you have a tension controller, adjust it to a loose setting to make it easier to remove the door springs. Unhook the door springs from the hinge plate. Some dishwashersmag-glass_10x10.gif may have a cable and pulley system attached to the door springs. Check your owner's manual for removal instructions if this is the case with your model.
  5. Step 5 Use pliers to gently pull back on the door hinge plate's tab until the slot opens for the hinge pin to come out. Take out the screws holding the door hinge plate onto the front of the door panel. Hold onto the door assembly while gradually opening the door. Once the door drops down, you should be able to remove it by sliding the door off the hinge pinAlways wear safety glasses when working with the springs and hinges involved with a dishwasher door assembly. These items can fly off at high speed and cause serious injury to the eye.

The door springs on the dishwasher need adjustment - how do I do this?

The door springs are accessable through the toe kick. There will be 3 or 4 steps where the spring can be attached. With the door closed and latched, so it can't fall accidently, remove the toe kick panel and with a pair of channel locks move the springs (one on each side) to the desired position.

Door spring has gone slack and the door falls heavily. Any advice?

Remove the bottom access plate. Reach inside and find the spring and re-attach it. If the spring is broken buy a replacement spring. There should be 2 springs,one on each side.

The door spring on my Kenmore Limited edition 8542516 broke what part do I need and how do I fix it

door springs usually don't "break" they iether get stretched over time or come off their mount...

springs are adjustable and can sometimes be set to a tighter tension without pulling the unit out but that may be necessary... they are generally located on both sides of the unit near the floor and can be accessed by removing the kick plate.

If the spring came off it's mount then you'll need to pull the unit out and put it back in place... there will be a bracket on the door itself with a hole to put one end of the spring and a jagged notch on the chasey to hook the other end and adjust tension...

If it's actually broken then you'll have to get a replacement spring and install as above.

I have a frigidaire quiet clean I dishwasher model # MDB124BFS2 - the spring on the door has broken. How do I replace it?

Hi, The easiest way would be to pull the d/w washer out of the cabinet about 8". Try removing the kick plate below the door and see if you can access the springs ok. Here is the part # 154430501. I would replace both springs while you are in there.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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.
