Question about Hobart SR24C-5 Dishwasher
There are a few possible causes of this, so it's easier to explain how it works and how to find the fault. There is usually a wire or cord attached to each hinge. The cord is threaded anti-clockwise through a pulley then runs vertically up to near the top of the washer where it's attached to a spring. When looking at the side of the washer, the spring is usually about 2-3 inches back from the door and attaches about 2-3 inches below the top of the washer.
To find the fault you need to remove the side panel/s of the washer. It helps if you can identify which side has lost tension (it could be both) as this avoids removing one side panel unnecessarily. Once you have removed the panel, you should be able to see the back of the hinge and the pulley/cord/spring assembly. It should then be fairly obvious what the fault is - it could be a detached/stretched/broken spring, or a detached/broken cord.
Hope this helps.
