Our Whirlpool dishwasher makes a creaking sound when we open the door? Would this be the springs and if so, do we just need to replace them?
Do we need anything else?
Answer Hello John,
I have found that a noise like this is actually caused by the door springs, or most times just one door spring, contacting something inside the cabinet. Remove the kick panel and check with a flashlight. You will normally see it like this and if the unit is adjusted in its' cabinet opening, the noise can normally be eliminated with no parts.
Does this washer require one door balance spring or two?
Answer Hello Wayne. The dishwasher needs 2 door springs 8270020. You will need to order two of these. Hope this helps.
