Heard a loud bang and thought a door spring on my 20 year old maytag dishwasher had broken

Appliance: Model YOU LOOK AT MY ORDER
My Repair & Advice
Without knowing exactly what broke I ordered 2 springs and 2 door spring links. I knew the door springs were weak and a parts man told me many years ago to always replace BOTH springs or the one you didn't replace will soon break. It is a simple procedure, just remember how the springs/links are attached. make a simple drawing or take a picture should you need it. I watched two "how to" video's
which made it look harder to do than it really is. Turn the circuit breaker off and turn the dishwasher on to make sure it is turned off.
I did not unhook anything since I was only pulling the washer out 6-8 inches which was enough to replace the springs and links.
The hardest part is cleaning up the dirt you will find when you take the kick panel off. It's simple...you can do it.
