Answer Hello Barbara. Based on the information you provided, you will need to replace the door spring 5300809703 in the unit.
I need to replace the Door balance link kit on Kitchenaid D/W. Please forward instructions/diagrams/pictures on how to gain access to the broken mechanism. Thanks, Doug
Answer Doug, you'll need to remove power to the dishwasher, remove the lower access panel and pull the dishwasher out a little to access to door balance link kit. The last image on the door balance link kit 8194001 parts page will show you how the link is routed. Hope this helps.
My door for my dishwasher completely came off the hinges. I think it's loose and moves around. It won't stay up on its own or stay locked. What kit do I need to fix it?
Answer Hello Liz,
The dishwasher door hinges have slots that the other half of the hinge, which has pins, fit into. Raising the door and shifting it back into position will correct the issue without any parts.
Door "falls open"
Do I need both springs and a cable kit?
Does dishwasher need to be pulled out or just access from front panel?
Answer Hello John. You need to uninstall the dishwasher and look to see if you need the spring or the cables. Most likely it is the door cable 8194001 that is broke, but it is best to check and see.
I have a kitchenaid superba. The door wouldnt stay to shut to engage sensor in latch to allow operation. I replaced that latch, now door stays shut, but does not lined up enough to engage sensor in new latch. Do I need new hinges or a door balancing kit?
Answer Chad, You will need to check the hinges and the dishwasher frame, to make sre they are not bent or damaged. Also check the inner door panel, and make sure it has not been bent. The door balance kit does not have much to do with the door closing and latching. You will also need to check the door latch strike 8574157 and make sure it is not damaged, bent or distorted. You don't have a "sensor" on the latch assembly. when the latch aligns and the strike enters the latch assembly, this allows the latch mechanism to "roll and lock the door, when this occurs, the door switches in the latch assembly are activated and the dishwasher operates.
