Maximus for Model Number DU7800XS-3

ANSWER Hello Maximus. • Springs should have enough tension to assist in closing the heavier door. • Door should open evenly, without excessive speed which would cause it to drop abruptly. • Door should remain fully open without closing by itself. 1. If these operation tests are failed and the dishwasher is already installed under the counter, remove the unit from its installed position. 2. Move the lower hook on each of the standard door springs to the farthest adjustment slot to increase spring tension. Repeat the Door Operation Tests. If the operation tests again fail, the heavy duty springs supplied must be used. 3. Close and lock the dishwasher door. Remove a spring from one side by releasing the lower hook from the adjustment slot first, then disengaging the upper hook from the door hinge bracket. 4. Install a heavy duty spring. Insert the smaller hook through the door hinge bracket first, then engage the larger hook in the first notch of the second group of adjustment slots. Open and close the door several times. The door should open and close easily. If the door closes too quickly, decrease the spring tension by moving the lower hook of each spring one (1) notch toward the back of the dishwasher. Springs should be in the same position on the left and right sides. Perform the Door Operation Tests again. Continue to adjust the door spring tension as necessary until the Door Operation Tests confirm proper spring 675611 adjustment. Install the dishwasher in the final installed position by following the installation instructions provided with the unit.
