I replaced the door balance kit and now the dishwasher makes an extremely loud screech/creek noise. Nothing seems to be rubbing or binding. We tried bar soap on the cables & lubricant on the rollers.
Can you please help me?
I noticed that the sting was a little shorter than the original, could that be the reason?
You will want to make sure that you installed all parts that came with the kit as this kit was designed due to this type of issue. If all parts were installed you will want to make sure that when the unit is installed that the springs are not rubbing against anything as this is the most likely cause for the issue.
Hello. What is the procedure to replace the door links??
Answer Pawpaw, 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. Thanks.
Is your door balance link kit the new and improved style with that has 2 active wheels per side vs the old style which had one active wheel?
Answer Hello Robert! I've found model KUDI01FLBL5. The door balance link kit 8194001 includes two wheel and mount assemblies and two link cables. You'll need to install a qty of 1 on each side. Thanks.
Does the door balance kit include the springs?
Answer Hello Leslie! No, the door balance link kit 8194001 does not include the spring 8270182. The spring comes one per package. Thanks!
Dishwasher door now feels very heavy and drops hard if not easied down.
What replacement parts would fix this door?
Answer Hello Bob. Make sure the springs are not broke. If not, replace the balance link kit 8194001. You will need to pull out the dishwasher from the cabinet to install these parts.
