Hi,

Most dishwashers share the basic design either between models or between brands. There are even cases of the same model being sold under different brand names. Below are two (2) common door assembly diagrams with parts placement. Please check which closely resembles that of your unit.

Broken door spring


This should not be hard to replace. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the dishwasher.

You need to buy a replacement spring (best to get the pair) which looks like this item.
BAUMATIC DISHWASHER TG5 DOOR SPRING for BDS461SS

To replace you need to locate the second spring on the other side of the dishwasher and remove it. The front base plate needs to be removed first to get access to the spring anchor points. Use a screw driver or a nose plier to grab it and dislodge. Always make sure the door is shut to ensure least tension in the springs. Put the two new springs and close the base plate.

Broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Hello,

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 .

What could be causing the door latch to release late in the wash cycle of my Kenmore Ultra dishwasher?


The door spring tension might be causing the door latch to become disengaged. Check the level of the dishwasher and also adjust door spring tension. Will need model number to provide more details.

How do I adjust the tension of the door on my Siemens dishwasher


Probably a broken spring. They rust and break off. I had to replace the ones on my Kenmore. The Kenmore was in the front, but my new Frigidaire is in the rear. Have to pull it almost all the way out to get at them. :(

How to install new door spring on portable dishwasher


Things You'll Need:
  • Owner's manual
  • Screwdriver
  • Replacement spring (optional)
  1. Turn off the power to your Kenmore dishwasher before attempting any repairs. If you have a portable Kenmore dishwasher, you can just unplug the power cord from the wall. Built-in dishwashers are hard-wired into the cabinet, so you will have to turn off the breaker switch at the home's circuit breaker box to cut the power.
  2. 2 Remove the screws that hold the kickplate onto the lower front of the Kenmore dishwasher. Take the kickplate off to access the door springs.
  3. Check the door springs to make sure they have not come loose from the door support or the adjustment holes on the dishwasher. Re-attach any ends that have slipped off their connections.
  4. Replace the springs if they are connected at both ends but still do not have enough tension to support the weight of the door. Once a Kenmore dishwasher door spring is stretched out, it cannot be restored to its original condition. Unhook one end of the old spring from the adjustment hole. Unhook the other end from the door support and discard the spring. Insert one end of the replacement spring into the adjustment hole and the other end into the hook on the door support.
  5. Open and close the door a few times to make sure the spring is now working properly. The door should not bounce up and down or sag on the hinges when it is in the open position.
  6. Restore power to your Kenmore dishwasher by plugging it back in or turning on the switch at the home's circuit breaker panel.

The door spring on my Kenmore Limited edition 8542516 broke what part do I need and how do I fix it


door springs usually don't "break" they iether get stretched over time or come off their mount...

springs are adjustable and can sometimes be set to a tighter tension without pulling the unit out but that may be necessary... they are generally located on both sides of the unit near the floor and can be accessed by removing the kick plate.

If the spring came off it's mount then you'll need to pull the unit out and put it back in place... there will be a bracket on the door itself with a hole to put one end of the spring and a jagged notch on the chasey to hook the other end and adjust tension...

If it's actually broken then you'll have to get a replacement spring and install as above.
