Question about Kenmore 15121 Built-in Dishwasher
The door to my dishwasher used to float down when opened only needing minimal support, now it drops like a stone with its full weight. How can I repair this?
Bear, sounds like one or both of your door springs came off or broke. If you remove the toe panel you will be able to see them on the left and right side. This is not a hard fix. They attach to the bottom of the door and to the rear of the frame. If your model number begins with 36315121 your part numbers will be wd03x10006 and wd03x10007. Good luck, Catriver

Check the float to make sure it moves freely up and down, and it should click when it moves. Remove float and clean around the float tube-you may need to do this from below, through the access panel. Use white vinegar to scrub the float and shaft assembly. Turn on the dishwasher to see if this fixed the problem.
If not, it may be the float switch. If you are handy with electrical repairs, turn off the power to the dishwasher, pull the dishwasher from the wall and remove the back. Remove the wires from the terminals on the float switch-use masking tape to identify to identify terminals,noteing which belongs where.Remove old switch and replace with the new float switch. You will need the serial number, model number and make of your dishwasher to order the new float.
