LDF6920 Door Problem
« on: June 01, 2012, 08:28:03 AM »
A few days ago, the mechanism that keeps the d/w door from slamming open gave out.  There is a frayed white nylon cord protruding out from the right side hinge area.
I don't know if it's a counterweight or some sort of friction based component, but I think I can replace it.
Does anyone have any diagrams, part numbers, sources for the part, etc?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated!

The page with the door tensioner cables and springs is missing from the exploded views of the unit that the provided link takes you to.

You must pull the unit out about a foot to get to the cables and springs. Make sure to replace the cables on both sides. Pretty straight forward repair just a little tricky getting the cables routed attatched.

The cable number provided by AJ is correct and is an improved part.

That definitely looks like the part. I've ordered two of them and will report back how it goes.  Thanks!

The parts showed up in a few days but I only got around to them today.

Getting the d/w in and out of the cabinets was harder than replacing the parts.  Big time props to clman for recommending getting two parts...the opposite side was definitely wearing out as well!

Thanks again guys...you're three for three on fixing my appliances!
