Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

A spring or something has broken in the door of my kitchenaid dishwasher. Now the door is extremely heavy and falls to the ground upon opening. How can I fix this problem? Thank you!

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

While I don`t have diagram or illustration I can give some insight because this is actually very common.

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...at least one by the sounds of your description ) 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 checking the spring itself, if it looks ok and not stretched or broke it is likely ok...they are seperate from the kit ( # 830967 door spring @ repairclinic as well )

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

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?

Kitchenaid KUDP01FL : Hi, machine will start to fill (on heavy), and then will not engage into the wash cycle. Have to press cancel to drain water. All other settings ( china/rinse/ normal wash) when button is pressed and door closes will "click". No water fills into machine. Have to press cancel to end cycle. Can it be a bad connection being i tryed trial and error and banged on inside of door to maybe "fix" it. NOW, heavy cycle does not fill with water, just a "click" noise. Thanks for
