Could you please show me how to replace door springs on tappan model I could not find the place to hook them up thanks
The door springs on your dishwasher will hook to the hinges and then down to the frame of the dishwasher. You will need to pull the unit out in order to do this.
How is the spring and retainer connected?
How is the bottom of the spring connected?
Same questions were aske above. The answer was inadequate.
Answer Hello Maximus. • Springs should have enough tension to assist in closing the heavier door.
• Door should open evenly, without excessive speed which would cause it to drop abruptly.
• Door should remain fully open without closing by itself. 1. If these operation tests are failed and the dishwasher
is already installed under the counter,
remove the unit from its installed position. 2. Move the lower hook on each of the standard
door springs to the farthest adjustment slot to
increase spring tension. Repeat the Door Operation
Tests. If the operation tests again fail,
the heavy duty springs supplied must be used. 3. Close and lock the dishwasher door. Remove
a spring from one side by releasing the lower
hook from the adjustment slot first, then disengaging
the upper hook from the door hinge
bracket. 4. Install a heavy duty spring. Insert the smaller
hook through the door hinge bracket first, then
engage the larger hook in the first notch of the second group of adjustment slots. Open and close the door several times. The door should open and close easily. If the door closes
too quickly, decrease the spring tension by moving the lower hook of each spring one (1) notch
toward the back of the dishwasher. Springs should be in the same position on the left and right
sides. Perform the Door Operation Tests again. Continue to adjust the door spring tension as
necessary until the Door Operation Tests confirm proper spring 675611 adjustment. Install the dishwasher in the final installed position by following the installation instructions provided
with the unit.
