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

Apparently the springs on my door are either not connected or they need to be adjusted. If I were to open the door and not hold it with my hands, it would immedaitely fall wide open. No tension exists on...


I had the same problem on my Dishwasher . There should be 2 screws underneath the top front part of the dishwasher. They hold the unit in place. Easy to get to. Open the door and look up. Pull out the 2 screws that are screwed into the underneath of the front cabinet.

This should allow you to pull (slide) out the unit just enough to see the springs ( aprox 1 ft ) on both sides on the bottom of unit. Inspect the springs. Mine had broke on one side where it clips into the holder.

I just inserted the spring in the proper tension hole to match the other side . I spun it around 1 turn as to hold it in place and then connected the top of spring it its proper place. This gave equal tension on both springs and the door works fine now.

Eventually I will buy a new spring and replace it but at least it works fine for now.

If even one spring has been disconnected the door will fall with out any tension what so ever. I'm guessing maybe just one spring has either come out or broke where it clips into the hole.

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

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.
