The door now drops hard when opening. In the past the door would drop slowly and was "not heavy" . I found a rubber piece on the floor just below the door. It looks like a rectangular washer . I am assuming the rubber piece helped slow down the drop of the door. Is this a correct assumption? Is this an easily repaired problem? Your help would be greatly appreciated

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?

The dishwasher detergent is not dissolving. There is rinse aid in the dispenser - sometimes the door opens and the detergent comes out and sometimes it doesn't. If the detergent does come out then it is just sitting in the rack - should it drop to the bottom of the dishwasher? I have checked the door cleaned out around it to make sure the hook and release are working. I opened the door and the water is hot.
