After taking the bottom cover off, I noticed that it's the cheap string that's broken and not the spring. I'm assumming that's pretty easy to replace? I've ordered the parts and just waiting. Any tips on replacing it would be appreciated.

What you need to do is unscrew the screws at the top of the dishwasher that's securing the unit to the countertop. gently pull the d/w out from underneath the counter.. please be careful because you may have a copper water line connected to the d/w. if so, then you must remove the line because the copper does not allow you to move the d/w around without the copper line beginning to leak. if you have any other line you can maneuver ok. also, check to see if the electrical line is long enough. if not, secured the power and disconnected the electrial line. when you have all of the restriants out of the way, then pull the d/w out and reconnect the springs. you have 2 spring configurations. you can look at the other side that's not broken to see how to put the other side on. usually only 1 side breaks. you'll need to order the string that connects the spring to the plactic figure 8. take a look at each side and you'll see what im taking about. thanks.

Usually all you have to do is open the door slightly, and lift upwards keeping your fingers away from the hinges as they have a very strong spring and can hurt if they release.

Door doesn't self close on Kitchenaid Superba frig


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

Ice Chute door dislodged


IF THE ICE DOOR HAS COME OFF, THE CHANCES ARE THAT THE PLASTIC TAB THAT HOLDS THE HINGE PIN IN PLACE HAS BROKEN. IT IS PART OF THE PLASTIC HOUSING. WHIRLPOOL/KITCHENAID HAS A FIX KIT THAT REPLACES THE PLASTIC TABS WITH A METAL BRACE THAT IS PRESSURE TAPED IN PLACE. I HAVE INSTALLED A COUPLE OF THESE KITS AND IT TAKES PATIENCE AND TIME. THE KIT WILL HAVE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO INSTALL. FIRST VERIFY THAT THE TAB HAS BROKEN. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER LEFT SIDE OF THE OPENING TO THE ICE CHUTE.
