Question about Dishwashers
Hello, welcome to Fixya.
Based on your desription what you`ve experienced is a broken door closer/link kit.
It is a fairly minor procedure to replace it/them. Slide the entire unit out from the cabinet a couple or three inches and you`ll see the plastic roller assembly and rope ( except yours is broke ) attached to the side.
You`ll need to insure your connections will allow you to pull the unit out however, otherwise they ( water, power, drain hose ) must be disconnected to prevent any preventable damaged.
If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.
The parts ( # 1059756 @ repairclinic ) come in a kit as I alluded to and will look like what I attached below...
These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" or "apwagner.com" to name a few.
They range in price for around $20, or you can just purchase the rope/link seperately for about $4 part # 1159210 @ repairclinic.
Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.
