Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

How can I access the door spring on a nautilus?

Answers :


The springs you need are Part code 521565P, Service kit DW spring hinge \015\012(2). There are two springs in each kit, and the retailer who sold you \015\012the machine should be able to get them for you.
\015\012Before you start, download the Fisher & Paykel Parts Manual for the \015\012DW820 and DW920, manual number 599069. Look at the Tub Assembly diagram,\015\012 page 6 and find the screws (15) that retain the front panel (31 - 33) \015\012immediately below the door. This is the way into the machine.
\015\012Turn off the power to the machine. Pull it out and undo the screws (15),\015\012 disconnect the earth lead to the panel (32) and put the panel aside. \015\012Then unclip the supports (34) for the next panel (35) and slide the \015\012panel up so that the retaining clips (36) reach the top of the slots in \015\012the main frame. There is an enlargement in the slots that allows the \015\012clips (36) to come out. Again, disconnect the earth lead and put the \015\012panel aside.
\015\012Find the screws under the seal (12) that hold the surround to the \015\012chassis at the front. There are two more screws (1) at the bottom of the\015\012 chassis. Remove these screws as well. Do the same for the back panel, \015\012but do not remove the surround. Rather, gently pull the sides of the \015\012surround away from the bottom of the chassis far enough to get your hand\015\012 in from the front. You should be able to see the springs on each side \015\012at the front near the bottom of the chassis. One or both of these \015\012springs will be broken.
\015\012Remove the old springs. I found it easier to remove the intact spring \015\012(only one was broken) from the bottom first, then the top.
\015\012Assembly is the reverse order of disassembly. Fit the new springs top \015\012first, then bottom. Watch that the seals don't get caught between the \015\012chassis and the surround as you refit the surround. Also, make sure that\015\012 the earth leads are firmly in place on each panel as you put the panels\015\012 on, and that the leads and connections are in good condition.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model SHU9915UC/U11. The spring mechanism on the detergent door cracked, and I bought the part to replace it. I took the front cover off of the dishwasher to determine how to replace it. Two white plastic "things", maybe spacers, fell out. I need 2 things: a) how to gain access to the spring on the detergent door so that I can replace it, and b) how to put the door spacers back on. An exploded parts view would probably help a great deal. Michael J. Orr

Door dropped Opened door on my FDB421RFR and a loud cracking noise occurred - now the door drops quickly. I guess the spring(s) have broken - does anyone know if the spring is on the rhs looking at the front? I sure hope so, I can probably access that side without pulling the unit out! Is it good to spray these with WD-40 or do they just age anyway?

I have a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher. However, the door to the detergent dispenser does not open reliably every load -- usually I have to open the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the load and open the soap dispenser myself. The catch on the dispenser will have released, but the dispenser door will not have sprung open. I am not sure exactly what the problem is -- the soap dispenser door simply seems a bit stiff in its holster. Given a little nudge, it springs open fine. I h

We have a Maytag "Dependably Quiet" Dishwasher approx. 17 years old. The door doesn't close properly (after I mistakenly lifted and pulled on it at the same time to pull the machine out slightly further). It seems to have dislodged at the bottom somewhat and I don't have any repair manuals that show how it is secured. Both of the springs and plastic hook mechanisms are in place for either side, however, it has dropped slightly down on the left side and binds on the bottom access panel. Any h

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something

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?

I have an Indesit DV62WHUK dishwasher and the last night the door made a banging sound when it was opened and now it won't close and will fall back under it's own weight. I suspect either a spring, spring cable or a hinge has broken. How do I check this? Is the spring mechanism in the door or main unit?

There is a plastic unit behind the door handle which houses a spring under tension. This latches the door closed and makes the electrical connection to allow the machine to work properly. You need to buy a new unit (\302\24315) which is a bit fiddly ... Indesit 23 in. DV62 IX Built-in Dishwasher

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!!!!
