Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description, I'd say you are correct ( yes you can get the parts on-line and I believe most homeowners aka do-it-yourselfers can repair this ). Either one or both of the door link kits/springs broken. It's an easy enough repair, though the unit does need to be pulled out, slightly.
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...
These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.
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.
