Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Unfortunately this is actually very common. Based on your description, either one or both of the door spring linkage`s has broken.


The good news though...It is a fairly minor procedure to replace it/them.

First, 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 likely 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 ( # 1059756 @ repairclinic ) come in a kit as I alluded to and will look like what I attached below...

door drops down hard when - 0fda4f0.jpg

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.

I recommend replacing the entire kit and checking the spring itself, if it looks ok and not stretched or broke it is likely ok...they are seperate from the kit ( # 830967 door spring @ repairclinic as well )

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

Please take a moment and rate the solution provided here or a testimonial if you feel warranted.

Let me know if you require further assistance and good luck.

My driver door in ny 71 squareback is stuck and I cannot open it


even with the key back and forth till the latch unlocks the spring is broken in the latch causing it to stay locked or try and take off the inner door panel i know its hard then you can unlock the latch from inside other than that just keep trying up and down with the door lock till it lets go and you can open it or drop down the window and try a rod down inside where the door lock is on the outside near door handle and push and pull the latch till it lets go

Front loader hard to latch, door drops down when opened, should I replace hinge?


Yes, maybe. The hinge may just be loose though. Hopefully, the screws holding it in place have not worn out the threads. Is there a lot of downward pressure being applied to the door.

Door won't close and door does not lower without dropping out of control.


One or both of the door springs have broken causeing the door to drop.You haven't mention the brand or model so it's hard to help.The door not closeing could be because the door dropped open & is distorted or the door might be hitting a basket if the basket has been put in back to front.

Window doesn't drop down for door to open on 911 Cab


there should be a sensor on the door handel, so the minute you start pulling the body controll module drops the window through the regulator. an actuator unlocks and locks the door.
