Suspect door spring/assembly broken. How do I repair same?

If it's like my whirlpool, pull it out. Spring should be obvious. I doubt the hinge portion is broken. Spring may be. While it's out and springs tend to break, I would replace both. Several online appliance parts stores can help you with springs, my diagnostics and Hinge issue. They have been helpful to me.

Broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

Cocking assembly

First establish a source for replacement parts, otherwise there is no point to mess with the air rifle.
Also by your description, I am not sure if the main spring is fully cocked or not at this point ?
If you are not sure about it continue cautiously.
Second (if you are mechanically inclined) start to take the rifle apart.
Remember that the danger is in the in the main powered spring.
Taking screws out is fairly safe, pins on the other hand should be done cautiously, they usually hold back some sort of force.
Pushing out any pins that hold assemblies together should be done with a smaller diameter pin than the one you attempting to push out. The pusher pin should go in loose, but if spring tension is present it will stick and keep things from exploding on you.
If the push pin gets stuck you will know there is spring tension that needs to be released.
Putting pressure on the right component or spot will free your pusher pin and allow you to release compression in a controlled and safe manor.
At this point you can just identify the parts that look broken or excessively worn and replace them.
Good Luck

Detergent holder wont spring open

I suspect the spring is actually broken.

You may be able to order a spring - but unfortunately may only be available as a complete unit.

Try a replacement from Ebay if possible - otherwise order via appliance spares.

Fairly easy to replace - but disconnect from power before attempting to remove door.

Heavy dishwasher door that falls open

I think any parts person would recognize it by that name.

It's a fairly simple fix.

The one you have may just be loose on one end and not broken -- check that before you buy one.

Detergent dispenser spring door is either missing the spring or broken. In any case it opens but is no longer spring loaded. I can't figure a way to remove the assembly unless I have to take off the front...

Door just pulls off, you will require a new door, spring & possibly a catch. Spring fits onto pin on door and other end onto pin on holder, then fold spring on its-self and re-instate onto runners/slide. Paul Winn Appliance Services. (Cumbria)

Broken door handle Indesit dishwasher DG 6100

I agree read "broken door catch" solution and be particularly careful in respect of the edges of the stailess steel panels - some of the edges are hidden and they are very sharp.
