Door opens too far. Rack must be lifted to push it into washer. I can find no solid stop for door. Right door spring is badly stretched.(coil part about 2 inches longer than other spring). left side had no plastic link on spring end. (It was laying on floor in back. Must have flown off last time I replaced spring). I have a new spring. There are several holes for spring in frame bottom. Do I try various holes till door opens correctly?
Answer Hello Norbert,
The multiple holes in the base for different adjustments are in case the unit has had a custom panel kit installed. If it had a wooden panel installed, the door would be considerably heavier and this requires a stronger spring tension. For this reason, the slots were provided by the manufacturer. The proper adjustment is where the door closes slowly on its' own with the rack in but the weight of the empty rack holds the door opened.
The dishwasher door has gotten very heavy.
Answer Hello John. You need to uninstall the dishwasher and see if the springs or linkage is broken and causing the issues with the unit.
