Bob, make,model# and order spring and replace, not hard to do.
Check that your spring, just did not pop off first. "I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button. Check out some of my other posts if you need more tips and info."
Dishwashers come with two springs that work to counter balance the door. To reattach it, you will need to remove the panel below the door. Once you get that removed, you can see the side where the spring is still attached to figure out where to attach the one that came off. Some time the spring comes off because it is broken, and you will need to order a new one. Replacements can be found at an appliance supply or online such as repairclinic.com or apwagner.com. Hope this helps you.
Remove the bottom toekick panel from the front of the dishwasher. Look just inside and you will see spring mounting holes on the bottom support frame. The spring goes from a hole to the hole in the lower door hinge. If I had a model number I could be more specific.
There are arms that come off the bottom of the door frame that should have support springs attached as a counter balance. They do break from continual use and stress. If the toe kick inspection panel is removed the springs should be visible, one on each side at the front. If broken, replace them. If one or both have fallen off, reattach them. There are different holes to attach them through, for more or less strength. Replacements should be available through an appliance parts store like APCO. Or perhaps Sears parts.
If the door is sprung in a manner that one side is flush and not other then most likely the hinge has been bent outward by the weight placed on it.the best solution would be to replace hinge,the spring only adjusts the tension for door closing. There is a slight possibility that either the frame or the door has bent in this manner so before buying hinge check frame and door for damage,after doing repair would suggest adjusting front legs of unit to raise front up a bit to ensure leaking wont continue
Documented in the manual...The plastic part goes on the metal hinge on the door...follow the rope down to the top wheel (clockwise and around) to the bottom wheel (counterclockwise and around), attach to the spring.
