    Door falls down and wont stay slightly open
    On this model it wont be the spring. The string latch that connects the door latch to the spring is what broke. These springs should never break. Pull dishwasher out enough to just see where spring attaches on the rear of this model. Attach new string to spring. Stretch around wheels. Attach other end to door. Comes in set of two. Change second string broken or not. Door is ready to go. Reset dishwasher. Done.

    Door falls when open. Does not close properly.
    1. Unscrewed the dishwasher at top and pulled it out from under counter.
    2. Noticed that the nylon cord door balance link was broken and the door spring was lying on the floor.
    3. Attached the new nylon cord to one end of the spring and then reattached the other end of the spring to the frame.
    4. Threaded cord through pulleys and attached the oval end of cord to the door hook. (Hint: this step is made easier by placing a slotted screwdriver into the oval end and pulling it over top of the door hook and then let the oval end slide onto the door hook.
    5. Slide the dishwasher back into place and screw the top of it into the counter.
    I replaced both sides so that this problem will not occur for another 8 years. I am sending back the springs which are not needed.
    So, either an $18.00 part and 20 minutes of time, or a $250.00 service call. You decide!
