Can't say for certain, as you don't list a brand or model number, but most have the springs on each side of the outer tub. (you will have to pull dishwasher at least partway out of the cabinet to access them) Some have a set of springs behind the access / toe kick panel. (DW removal unnecessary for these)

How do i fix a broken spring on a dishwasher door


You will need to pull the dishwasher out about 12" to 18" to be able to get to the springs & rope links. Many dishwashers use a "rope link" to connect between the spring and the door hinge; and in others, the door springs connect directly to the door hinges. Once you pull the dishwasher out, you will easily see what broke and what you need to fixe it.

Dishwasher door spring broke, how to fix?


If your mechanically minded it will take about an hour or so to do max.. Each brand dishwasher can have different spring locations.. Some require the door to be stripped and taken off.. Other require access from side panels.. I took easy option and got professional to do mine recently. It took him 35 min.. I was happy to pay him the 45 including labour

My magic chef dishwasher door springs broke. I need to know how to access the bottom of the dishwasher to replace the broken parts.


Open the back door and see whether the hooking points visible.

Look from the front end also to get an idea!

Door spring broken


You should have one at the bottom corners of the door. Pull the dishwasher out about a foot and you should be able to see the broken spring and the hooks it connects to. Screws under the counter top hold the dishwasher in.

Our Kitchenaid KUDS01FLSS6 dishwasher door string broke, but unsure what I need to pull apart out to replace?


The "STRING" is referred to as a LINK. The link has a plastic connector glued to each end. It is common for the plastic to get brittle with age (even less than 5 years) or the nylon cord to wear down and break. That is why you see the frayed cord. You have to pull the dishwasher out to fix the problem. I had to order my link online because parts store in my city didn't have it in stock. Go to the Kitchenaid website to and key in your model number to get the parts schematic for your dishwasher. Under Customer Care, go to Locate Manuals and Guides, key in your model # and click Go. At the bottom of the web page you'll see Parts List. Click on the link and this pdf pops up: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208194009.pdf.) From the schematic you can find on page 7 "Link, Door Balance" which is #24 part 8535568. The spring hooks on to the back of the dishwasher frame and runs parallel to the floor. The Link end with the round hole attaches to the spring and the other end slips/hooks over the bracket arm that is attached to the door. Good Luck

I opened teh door and thought i felt something hit


Murray, It sounds like one of the door springs has broken and that is why the door seems heavier and opens with much more force.

You'll want to at least make a temporary repair and order a new replacment spring to get your dishwasher working like it should and so it's safer too.

You can check to see which side of the dishwasher the spring broke, by locking the door shut (with the cycle set to "off"). Now remove the lower access panel, beneath the main dishwasher door. There are a couple of screws near the top corner edges of the panel, just under the main door and a couple more on the toe kick near the very bottom.

Once you've got the lower access panel off, you'll be able to see the two door springs, (there is one on each side). Of course, the broken one might have fallen off the spring notches, so look around and you should see it.

With the door still closed and locked, you can remove the broken spring and see if it's just the hook end that broke. If that's the case, you can reform the end hook using a couple pairs of pliers and reinstall the spring on the door and frame mounting points. You'll have to use pliers to stretch the spring slightly to get it on the other mounting point, once you've got one end on a mounting point. If the spring broke off more than 3 coils, you'll need to replace it with a new one.

You can find a replacement by using searspartsdirect.com and putting in your model number to locate a line drawing and parts listing for your particular model. You can also order a new one from them, or use the part number to get one locally, if you wish.

Once you've got the spring back on the door and cabinet mount points, you can unlock the door and gently lower the door to see if everything is working properly. Once you've opened and closed the door several times, you can reinstall the lower access panel and you're back in business.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Spring on door is broke. do I need to pull


The door springs are located at each door hinge and connect to the frame body along each side of the dishwasher. If you remove the lower toe panel directly below the door you should be able to see them. However, in order to access them to repair/replace you WILL need to pull the dishwasher out to get to them in most cases. You may not have to remove the dishwasher all they way, however, if you have enough slack in the water supply line, power cord and drain line. Just follow these steps:

1. Turn off the main power or unplug dishwasher.
2. Remove lower toe panel.
3. Remove the screws under the counter top holding the dishwasher in place.
4. With the screws removed, carefully pull the dishwasher out. Watch through the toe panel opening to see if you have enough slack in the power cord and water lines.

You may have enough clearance to locate the springs on the each side to make your repairs. If not, you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the water supply line on the left hand side inside toe panel. You may also have to remove the electrical lines inside the junction box inside the toe panel. It is usually located right in front for easy access. Make sure the power is turned off at the breaker, or the unit is unlugged before servicing the electrical supply. For reinstallation, the color codes are as follows:

BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN (or Bare) - GROUND

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Where can I buy the cable repair kit for my Kitchenaid dishwasher


OK, pretty easy fix. Look at diagram 10 here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5164885

The link (#24) probably broke and the spring (#18) probably shot off and is lying somewhere behind the dishwasher. Just pull out the dishwasher (careful not to disconnect or crimp any of the hoses) and check to see if both springs (one on each side) can be located. Just replace the old links and re-hook the springs and all should be well.

You can order the link replacement (part #8194001) from kitchenaid at 1-800-422-1230.
