Hello, \015\012 \015\012Welcome to Fixya.

Based on your description what you`ve likey experienced is a broken door closer/link kit.

It is a fairly minor procedure to replace it/them. Slide the entire unit out from the cabinet a couple or three inches and you`ll see the plastic roller assembly and rope ( except yours is likey broke ) attached to the side.

**You`ll need to insure your connections will allow you to pull the unit out however, otherwise they - water, power, drain hose - must be disconnected to prevent any damage.**

If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.

The parts ( # 1059756 @ repairclinic ) come in a kit as I alluded to and will look like what I attached below...

These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" or "apwagner.com" to name a few.

They range in price for around $20, or you can just purchase the rope/link seperately for about $4 part # 1159210 @ repairclinic.

I recommend replacing the entire kit, and check the spring itself...that is seperate from the kit ( # 830967 door spring @ repairclinic as well )

Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.

I have a kitchen aid dishwasher model number KUD101TJBLO. I have had the thermal fuse replaced numerous times. It may run two weeks ir it may rub two cycles then the fuse blows. My serviceman has given up on finding a solution.He has replaced the control board and the door switch. However it continues blowing the fuse. I read on the internet that you need to replace the entire wiring kit that comes with the fuse but my repairman says this will not fix the problem and refused to replace the kit.

I don't have a model number right now, but the front door on my Admiral dishwasher is leaking at the bottom. I have changed the gasket inside the door panel at the bottom but it still leaks. This is a rental property and the renters did a job on this dishwasher. I was wondering if they may have pulled another lower gasket off that I didn't know existed. Something like a windshield wiper. The seal I changed was a foam strip 3 x 22 approx. Thanks for your time, Joan


It may not be the door that is leaking if this is an older admiral or whirlpool dishwasher the lever that holds the soap door closed has a little rubber seal that after time will let water in during the wash cycle it the runs down the inside of the d ... Admiral Dishwashers

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. I say appear in good condition because I don't know what they are supposed to look like. But I see nothing obviously broken. The 2 springs appear intact. The connecting cable is good. However one of the 2 springs is shorter than the other. It may be shorter because one is supposed to stretch to the other side of the dw? So number 1

Customer bought house with a Viking Dishwasher already there. He has no user manuals or documentation with the model number listed. None of the stickers on the side of the door have a Viking model number. This unit is a Quiet Clean System with Auto Water Heating and is (he thinks) about two years old. How can I find out what the model # might be or better yet how do I find out the part # to fix the main control board / interface. It just keeps blinking.


Check the back of the unit for a tag.... otherwise - removing the clock... it should have a part number on it.\015\012\015\012Thanks! ... Dishwashers

The slide on the upper basket keeps falling out. It's been fixed twice but doesn't hold. The second repair man who put the slide back in the rollers said he couldn't see anything wrong with it, but it still didn't hold, so he called your tech dept. who said they had roller and slide kits at a total cost of $66 for this model. The slide kit had a new part number but the tech department didn't tell the repair man why they'd changed the part. The roller kit was one for dishwashers the sides o
