Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The springs in the door broke. Where can I get the parts and can I fix it myself?


Answers :

You can get replacement springs at an appliance parts store or on line. Remove the bottom front panes to get to the connection points for the springs on the door at the sides and on the bottom frame.

I have a Philco dishwasher Svelta DWN17 which works well but has lost its spring or counterweight for the door. The door now drops open when not locked for washing. I am having difficulty finding a servicing firm for this machine and would try to fix it myself if I could find a part and get some details on how to go about it. Can you help, please? Alan Wright

The door has always made a horrible noise that I could not get to go away (I shot some WD40 into all available places). I learned to live with the noise. NOW, the spring on the door has obviously broken. I am afraid someone will open the dishwasher and hurt a small child with the falling door! I see where you addressed the broken spring problem. Do you think I could fix the horrible noise at the same time? Do you think this is something my husband could fix?

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

Model 587784100 My 18inch Kenmore apartment-sized portable dishwasher leaks when running and needs a new main rubber gasket (where the door seals the washer), and a new collar of some sort of white hard plastic collar at the very bottom of the spinning washer arm (which I believe helps make it spin more freely and not "chatter"?)
