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.
One of the door springs fell off. I need to no where it hooks back on to.
Answer Hello Larry. The long end of the spring 154430501 hooks to the door hinge linkage, and the other end hooks to the frame of the dishwasher. Hope this helps.
How do you access the door springs?
Answer Hello Herp. You will need to pull the dishwasher out to replace the springs 154430501. Hope this helps.
I ordered a door spring. I wanted AP2579218. I rec'd WCI 5300809703, Why? I see an alternate Fridgidaire # AP3363442 What's the difference? I'd like the proper spring and what to do with the incorrect spring.
Answer Hello Rich! For a regular dishwasher door spring you will need 154430501. The heavy duty door spring for use when a custom panel door kit has been installed on the door use 154289301.

Does P/N AP3363442 include two door springs?
