Ha ha! For a small fee I would be glad to tell you how I fixed my dishwasher. Maybe you should think a little more about asking for money to solve someone else's problem while soliciting free information from others...not cool!

Kenmore elite dishwasher model 665.16493300 door falls to floor when opening


Door springs are located at the left and right side of the door bottom. You will have to pull the unit a few inches from the installed location to see them. If broken, replace. If one slipped off, reattach.

Door springs


If the door won't stay shut the issue is with the door catch not the door springs, But if you want to know where the door springs are you need to remove the outer cabinet of the dishwasher and you will see them on the lower sides.

When you open the door, it falls open...like a spring or pully is broken


The springs probably are broken. Remove the two screws that hold it to the counter and pull it out a bit to make sure. You may have to remove the panel under the door as well. New springs can be ordered from www.appliancepartspros.com I hope this helps.

My dishwasher door springs appear not to work and will not hold the door open. How do you replace or reattach the springs? Thanks, JoAnne


they actually arent springs, it is a cable and has probably broken or come apart. You can order this part through KitchenAid and replace yourself. Or call a repair rep.

The spring came out of the handel and can put it back. how do i fix it?


Dishwashers come with two springs that work to counter balance the door. To reattach it, you will need to remove the panel below the door. Once you get that removed, you can see the side where the spring is still attached to figure out where to attach the one that came off. Some time the spring comes off because it is broken, and you will need to order a new one. Replacements can be found at an appliance supply or online such as repairclinic.com or apwagner.com. Hope this helps you.

Springs on detergent compartment have come off...how can they be put back on again?


Hi,

It's fairly easy but you need to remove the front panel of the door first. To do this you will need a T20 T-Star screwdriver or screwdriver bit then follow these instructions:

1. Open the door and fold it down flat - there are 10 screws (T20) around the edges of the door
2. Undo and remove the 3 screws on each side - leave the 4 screws at the top!
3. Close the door
4. Grab the door at the bottom on both sides and pull gently towards you about 2-3 inches.

At this point you may find that 2 plastic clips fall out. Don't panic - it's not broken. They slide back on when the panel is removed.

5. When the bottom of the door is pulled away, pull it downwards and it will slide out from behind the control panel. The outer panel of the door should now be completely free.

You will now be able to see the back of the detergent compartment where the springs are located. Re-attach the springs, then re-fit the door following the instructions above in reverse order. If one or both of the clear plastic door clips have come off, reattach them to the brackets at the bottom of the door before re-fitting the panel. It's much easier this way!

T-Star bits are freely available - I've attached a picture of one.

If you get into any difficulty removing or refitting the door, please post back and I will assist you further.

I want to fit a wooden door to a intagrated dishwasher stoves


If your dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif door is not closing properly or has developed a leak, it may be time to replace the entire door assembly. Some other signs of a defective door include sagging, difficulty pulling the door back up into a closed position and a door that feels heavier as it drops open. Replacing a dishwasher door is not that hard, but includes several springs and hinges that must be aligned correctly or the door will not fit correctly in the opening.
  1. tep 1 Unplug the dishwasher and shut off the water before attempting to remove any parts. If you cannot reach the electrical outlet, you can turn off the breaker switch that controls the electricity for the kitchen. Remove the drain hose that runs from the dishwasher unit to the sink drain.
  2. Step 2 Pull the dishwasher out from the cabinet until you have clear access to the side of the unit. Ask a friend for help with this part if the unit is too heavy for you to slide out without straining your back.
  3. Step 3 Check your dishwasher's owner's manual to find out exactly how the outer door panels are removed. Some models have a two-panel door where the control panel must be removed before the lower panel will come off. Otherwise, the door panel should be one solid piece or a two-piece assembly that allows the lower section to be removed separately to access the springs and hinges.
  4. Step 4 Remove the springs at the bottom of the door. Depending on the type of dishwasher you have, there may be a tension adjustment dial or simply a series of holes at different distances from the edge of the unit. If you have a tension controller, adjust it to a loose setting to make it easier to remove the door springs. Unhook the door springs from the hinge plate. Some dishwashersmag-glass_10x10.gif may have a cable and pulley system attached to the door springs. Check your owner's manual for removal instructions if this is the case with your model.
  5. Step 5 Use pliers to gently pull back on the door hinge plate's tab until the slot opens for the hinge pin to come out. Take out the screws holding the door hinge plate onto the front of the door panel. Hold onto the door assembly while gradually opening the door. Once the door drops down, you should be able to remove it by sliding the door off the hinge pinAlways wear safety glasses when working with the springs and hinges involved with a dishwasher door assembly. These items can fly off at high speed and cause serious injury to the eye.

Door does not stay horizontal when opened. How do I adjust the door springs?


Hello Slosh,
The are four torx screws (Two on each side) of the door panel near the bottom. The top screw controls tension and the bottom allows you to position the door. Be careful when loosening the panel as the screws will come out completely and then you will need to remove the outer door panel and reattach the door springs

Bosch Dishwasher


Hi ED, It sounds like a real problem here. If the springs are still in one piece, my best guess is to to remove the springs from the door. Then attach the springs to the dishwasher body first, then reattach the spring to the door. Not an easy job, good luck. If you have further problems check with www.repairclinic.com, as the repairguru there may be of more help.
