Open the dishwasher and look at the top of the chassis, where the door catch is. You'll see 2 screws with hexagonal heads, one on either side of the catch. Turning these screws will apply or reduce tension on a wire liked to a spring on either side of the door. Tension must be equal on both sides.

How do I adjust the door hinge tension on a Beko Dishwasher DW51


most dishwashers have springs on each side of the door bottom that can be moved to different mount points to adjust tension.

In many cases they may be accessed by removing the bottom kick panel, but it may be necessary to back off the from adjuster legs, remove any other cabinet securing screws and pull the unit out slightly.

All the best.

My dishwasher door will not stay up unless locked. I have installed new springs, to no avail

Might help with solution if you provide make and model number of dishwasher.

Sometimes the solution is a simple as ensuring the dishwasher is level so that the door shuts. The spring tension may need adjustment and usually there are a few screws at the top of dishwasher panel. Depends on make and model.

Just below dish loading door you will see a panel. Remove screws (if applicable) to remove panel and you will find the door tension adjustment. Turn adjustment usually with a screw driver to the left to loosen or opposite lifting door opened and closed till you are happy with tension.

Just below dish loading door there is a panel. Remove screws (if applicable) to find tension adjustment. Turn screw to the left to loosen or opposite lifting door open or closed untill happy with tension. Some washers have no adjustment, I suggest opening door fully and pulling out bottom load tray, loading and then top tray or rack, pushing top in first then bottom rack. Use a glass fry pan cover or fry pan for weight on door while filling soap. Good luck, best regards

Door spring seems to have broken

Yep! What happens is a "T" shaped metal piece that is "screwed" into the spring and serves as an adjustment of tension tears or bends and falls out of the spring(s). Usually one at a time.

If you are clever you can rebend and strengthen this piece and adjust the tension to normal.

Access this by removing the panel below the door where the toe kick is.

The cause of the problem will be obvious and one side will probably still be intact so you can see how they are supposed to be.

Door does not stay horizontal when opened. How do I adjust the door springs?

Hello Slosh,
The are four torx screws (Two on each side) of the door panel near the bottom. The top screw controls tension and the bottom allows you to position the door. Be careful when loosening the panel as the screws will come out completely and then you will need to remove the outer door panel and reattach the door springs

Washing machine door tension too great

You need to pull the dishwasher out slightly to get to the top panel. On there you will see two screws attached to some cables. Release the tension on the cables by screwing the scres back in to make the cables appear slightly shorter. Ensure both cables are close to the same tension, and make sure that you do it with the door attached to get the proper weighting.

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.

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

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.
