Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hello, My built-in Jenn-Air JDB5900AWB dishwasher door has lost it's springs and comes crashing open. I am pretty handy and would like to try to fix this myself, is it possible? I have a great parts store here that the plumbers use (I was the only person there who wasn't a professional that day!). Where can I see instructions to fix this? Thanks, Miss Fix It

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

While I don`t have diagram or illustration I can give some insight because this is actually very common.

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 spring ( except yours is likey broke...at least one by the sounds of your description ) 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 damage.**

If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.

The parts ( # 740040 @ repairclinic ) 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.

Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.

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.

Difficult to pull door open and loud click coming from left hinge


I would check for obstruction in the path of the door spring areas. If appropriate, remove the bottom access panel (typically 2 screws); open/close the door in attempt to observe the inside bottom left and right for the clicking sound.

If not already done so, also ensure your dish-washer is raised of the floor a little bit; leveled and properly secured to counter top with 2 screws.
