When opening the dishwasher, the door slammed itself down and a small white plastic part broke off and fell on the floor. My guess is it came out from the the hole where the hinge is however I cant seem to find any part that looks like it in the parts catalog. My inital thought was the door balance link kit, but the part is very different. The broken picelooks like two popsickle sticks on top of each other but sepparated (and connected) near the top round edge bu a small plastic stub. Its about an inch and a half long before it bends into about a 120 degree V-shape where it actually snapped. Happy to send a picture of the part if it's of any help. Thanks in advance.

ANSWER Hello Handy juani, The part that you would need would be the door balance link kit. The part has been redesigned so it may look different but if you pull unit out you will probably find that this is what broke.
