dishwasher door slops downward
« on: August 10, 2012, 08:07:09 AM »
Our child has leaned on the door of the dishwasher while open. Now when fully opened the door slopes downward. Doesn't affect the function of the dishwasher except when you roll the bottom rack out onto the door it wants to keep going.

What parts do I need to replace? Has anyone else seen this happen?

Model FDB4050LHS1

It's not too bad.  You'll have to pull the dishwasher out a little. Remove the two screws holding the door panel in place and remove the panel.   The hinge is attached to the door frame with two nuts and bolts.  The pivot screw is torx, don't remember the size.  Do one side at a time.
