Having problems with your GE Profile PDW8060GSS Built-in Dishwasher ?

How to adjust door springs on this model dishwasher.

\015 There are no extra slots on the door hinge itself. The top end of the spring unit is visible/accessible through a circular cutout on each side of the unit. The top end has a bracket welded to the frame. The spring looks to have a plastic sleeve through which a plastc piece (shaped like a philips screwdriver) protrudes when the door is closed. Perhaps somebody has seen this before?\015

Door problem Hi, I'm not sure of the model number but our Miele dishwasher has a very tight springback action on the door. This must be adjustable but I cant work out how! It is very tricky trying to load and unload when the door wants to spring closed all the time! Thank you, Sue

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

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

I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom. Tried to re

16 year old GE built-in dishwasher, model GSD900. Springs that prevent front door from falling disconnected. ALL parts APPEAR to be in good condition.
