My Repair & Advice
There is no good diagram explaining how exactly these fit in. I had to do trial and error. The parts are quite delicate so I actually broke one trying to get it in. I would recommend ordering an extra or two. These need springs tonfit correctly. Luckily I saved the old ones...if you don't have them, it won't work. Unscrew the two screws on outside and two inside. You don't have to take whole thing out, just loosen. Look carefully and you can see the two little holes in the plastic where the doors hook in. There is a flat and and a sligtly angled end to the doors. The flat end goes in the slot in the middle of the machine. I put the spring on the prong that goes near the middle fitting. Not sure if it is supposed to go on that side but it worked. There are two slots that are hard to see. Put the spring end in first and then you basically have to bend it to force the other end in snug. Try not to break it. I broke the first one. Not as easy as it looks.
