They have the spring for sure don't know about the cord.
You may have to call them for that part.
They have a number on the website

The dishwasher door no longer has a return spring. It just flops down.

Bob, make,model# and order spring and replace, not hard to do.
Check that your spring, just did not pop off first.

My Dishwasher door has suddenly become very heavy, there is a cord hanging down on left hand side its a HJA8630 about 5 years old can you help

The cord you refer to is part of the door spring assembly, you need to take off the bottom panel and repair or replace the door spring or cable.

The spring came out of the handel and can put it back. how do i fix it?

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 or Hope this helps you.

The spring came off the door. how do you put it back on it was on the side of the dishwasher.when you open it just flops down find the spring on the you have picture of where it goes

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.

D/W door came unhinged and spring detached. Spring reattached and door in place but no power to button/switches?

Most dishmachines have a safety switch incorperated in the door to prevent the unit from working untill the door is closed "Properly".

In your case this feature may be triggered by the spring that fell off in some way.

Check the door perimeter for such a device, it is possible there is a secondary spring to this switch as well as the main spring to the door.

Other units incorperate a magnet in the door that must align properly with the safety switch although that is more common on comerical dishmachines.

95% chance this is the problem, Look that entire door mechinism over with a fine tooth comb, you'll likely find what I am talking about.

Good Luck.

Door is not staying up when open banging down

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

The door flops open as the rope has broken. I have the replacement part but need a diagram to show how to replace the part. Where can i find the diagram?

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.
