How do I install spring AP3363442 in the door
To install the door spring, you will first need to pull the unit out from under the counter to expose the hinges. Hook the spring to the hinge and then to the cabinet hooks on the base.
I ordered 2 springs since the door would fall down. Could you please email me installation instructions. The part is ap3363442. Thank you, Lyn
We do not have instructions to email on the spring installation. To install the springs you will need to pull the unit out just far enough to attach the short end of the spring to the hinge and the other end to the base of the unit.
looking for tension spring with diagram for model 1124 tappan dishwasher. Pls advise.
Answer Hello Jack,
The Tension spring for the 1124 has been discontinued by the manufacturer with no availablility.
Please confirm that the replacement spring for our regular dishwasher (model FDB949GFT1) is P/N AP3363442. Also, how do we access the door springs to replace them on our model? Thank you!
Answer Glen, the door spring is part number 154430501. To install you will need to uninstall the dishwasher and pull it out about 10 inches to access the springs. They are connected to the side of the tub and the door hinge and just pulls off. Hope this helps, thanks!
Is there a way to tell if both the door spring and linkage are broke without pulling the dishwasher out?
Answer Hello Bill. No, you will need to pull the dishwasher out to inspect the linkage and the spring 154430501. Hope this helps.
