Part Information

This door spring (part number WP9743986) is for dishwashers.

Door spring WP9743986 applies tension to the dishwasher door through the door hinge to prevent the door from dropping too quickly when you open the dishwasher.

Use caution when installing the door spring because the spring is under tension and could snap. Wear work gloves to protect your hands during this repair.

Easy to install

First Look at the matching spring on the other side to see what holes to use. Close the door to shorten distance needed to stretch spring. Insert top of spring (shorter hook) into hole on side of door. Using needle nose pliars on bottom hook, carefully stretch and insert in hole on bottom of frame. A few tries needed to get it. 10 min DIY fix!

Somewhat confusing parts manual

Difficult to tell from parts book how many springs were needed. I ordered one, but two were required. Installation was fairly easy, but I needed to order another, so the project is still not complete at this time. I was able to modify the broken spring to get the dishwasher door working as normal until the 2d spring comes in. IMHO parts manuals should indicate the quantity of a given part needed for the assembly like many parts manuals do, but that is just little old me. Or the expanded parts breakdown could show both parts.
