Dishwasher door is overextended

3 posts in this topic

We have a Maytag dishwasher and my 5 year old son opened the door and pushed too hard on it (My guess is that he stepped on it, but he's not admitting it!). It now hangs down past a 90 degree angle and the bottom rack won't roll out properly.

How can I fix this?

You have to eather change the Left and Right side hinges.Or you can try to bend them straight.

You MAY be able to salvage this dishwasher by replacing the door hinges. Hinges are replaced as a set-- don't screw around with one at at time to save a dime.

Post an illustrative picture or two so we can better evaluate the extent of the damage.
