You can't.  The door is preset at the factory and doesn't have any adjustments.

This is a basic question. We have old fashioned tilt up garage doors. They are wood and use springs on each side to open the doors and keep them open. I want to adjust the springs because: 1 one door will...


you move them up or down on the chain link on the bottom or on the holes on the garage door frame where they attach at the top. proper adjustment has the door open about half way with free travel on the opener. you also can change the size/length of the spring to adjust tension one way or the other. generally the best adjustment is from the bottom. an obviously, it is easiest to move the springs when the door is fully open. block it fully open with a long 2x4 or something as you do this, otherwise the door will fall good luck

Starts to open and then stops


Temporarily disconnect the opener from the door (usually a red handle). Check the door for proper manual operation. The door should open easily, stay halfway open, and stay in the header by itself. If that is not the case, the you will need to have the springs adjusted for proper tension. If the door operates properly, then you can reconnect the opener to the door, and adjust the up-force setting.

Problems with integrated dishwasher


The door tension is set with a spring. You need to pull the unit out part way and look on the left and right side bottom area near the front. The spring can be adjusted by selecting a different hole in the bracket that it is attached to.

Could be. Yet you may only need to adjust the springs and not replace them.. In case you have roll up/ sectional garage door, it should be quite easy you need to release the traveler from the rail so you can open and close the door manually/by hand then, while open the door on the knee level leave the door. If it falls down the springs need adjustment.
In general the door should stay at the same position on every stage it is while pulling it up and down.
If the door falls/ closes down not enough tension on springs, if door opens up too much tension on springs. If door acts funny.like close when close to the floor and jump up when its futher more open, it means that you don't have the matching springs for the weight of your garage.

Apparently the springs on my door are either not connected or they need to be adjusted. If I were to open the door and not hold it with my hands, it would immedaitely fall wide open. No tension exists on...


I had the same problem on my Dishwasher . There should be 2 screws underneath the top front part of the dishwasher. They hold the unit in place. Easy to get to. Open the door and look up. Pull out the 2 screws that are screwed into the underneath of the front cabinet.

This should allow you to pull (slide) out the unit just enough to see the springs ( aprox 1 ft ) on both sides on the bottom of unit. Inspect the springs. Mine had broke on one side where it clips into the holder.

I just inserted the spring in the proper tension hole to match the other side . I spun it around 1 turn as to hold it in place and then connected the top of spring it its proper place. This gave equal tension on both springs and the door works fine now.

Eventually I will buy a new spring and replace it but at least it works fine for now.

If even one spring has been disconnected the door will fall with out any tension what so ever. I'm guessing maybe just one spring has either come out or broke where it clips into the hole.

We have a kitchenaid KUDP01FLSS6 built in dishwasher, and the door pops open several times during a cycle. Is this something that can be repaired or is it just a common problem? Thanks!


You should adjust the spring tension on the door. There are 3 settings. Move it to a lower number to tighten the spring. Be sure to adjust both sides of the door to the same setting.

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

Garage Door opens by itself


Your garage door springs may be out of balance. Try this test: Remove power from the opener motor. Pull the red release rope so that the door is detached from the openers drive. Lift open the door by hand- it should open all the way freely. Next, pull the door back down, stopping it about chest-high. It should remain where you stopped it. IIf the door is difficult to move, or does not stay half open, the springs need replacement or adjustment.
