Dishwasher door, too much spring

I have a new Miele dishwasher, advanta series.  There is way too much spring on the door.  It does not stay open on its own.  I have tried turning the screws at bottom left and right as indicated in instruction diagram but,that did not help. Can I do anything else ? thanks Lyne P.S. my wood panel is not yet installed, could that be the reason?  Does it need the weight of the door to reduce the spring?

YES after you have the panel installed it will open and close much better the factory sets the springs on your model tight so when the panel is installed it can weight down the door after the panel is install you may have to readjust them tighter again

The door on my miele G481 built in dishwasher won't stay open it's really annoying that it keeps popping up when I'm trying to load.


hi,

what you need to do is slack off the spring tension on the door hinges. each side of the unit at the base on the plinth there is a screw with a spring symbol next to it. turn this anti clockwise to reduce the spring tension.

Hope this helps

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
