Hi!

So my Kitchen-Aid KUDIO2CRBS2 Dishwasher 'broke' a few nights back. It's definitely the right cable on the door balance that snapped, meaning the door is super heavy, but it still clicks when it closes (I've attached a photo of the frayed end of the broken cable). I can't have it fixed for a few days, but I really need the dishwasher to keep up my Brother's massive production of dirty dishes. Kitchen-aid has so far been almost impossible to contact, so I'm hoping someone here can answer my question.

My question is: will a broken door balance effect the door seal? Can I still run the dishwasher without the water leaking out?

Thank you friends for the help  :)
