LG LDF6810ST Guillotine repair
« on: Today at 11:42:37 AM »
Hello again,  I bought this dishwasher back in 2008 and while I'm happy it has lasted this long it hasn't been a pleasant ownership.  Back in 2010 the drain hose split inside the sidewall and flooded my kitchen.  In 2012 the motor went out and you guys were instrumental in that repair.  In the past year while opening the door one evening I heard a loud snap followed by a ping.  Then the door dropped to the floor.  I figured the two were related and we just dealt with it since the washer still worked.  Now that our 1 year old is walking it has become a serious danger to her life.  Since it doesn't lock and can be pulled open with little effort it really is a guillotine waiting to happen. 

I need help preparing for the repair.  From the looks of the parts diagrams there is a nylon cable connected to a spring on each sides.  I'm going to replace the cables and springs, but is there anything else I may be missing in this repair?

No should just need the cables. Yours are more than likely white ended, while New ones should be black. If your unit has side panels, the unit needs fully removed from cabinets. If it doesn't, a few inches out and you will be fine

It does have a shell, so it'll have to come out.  Thanks for the reply.  I placed my order and already received my tracking #.  Appliance parts pro has great service.
