I am fixing a Kitchen Aid dishwasher (model#: KUDP02FRBL1) that broke the spring cables(as they all do!), but in this case the door dropped down and bent a hinge (as far as I can tell). The hinges had apparently been rubbing or binding before the problem occured. The door has a wooden trim panel on the front that must add a good 15 pounds or more to the weight of the door, so I figure that had partly to do with the problem. At this point, the right side of the door is higher than the left side, preventing the door from closing. Looking closer at the hinges, it looks like the right hinge popped off the round protrusion that it hinges on(part of the dishwasher's frame?)
Anyhow, I'm planning on replacing the pulleys and cables for the door springs, and replacing the hinges while I'm at it. I have never changed the hinges before, and was wondering if anyone can point me to a walkthrough of the job or give me some info on how the door hinge replacement is performed.
I have lots of experience with these dishwashers, but that is one thing I haven't done on them yet.
Thanks for any and all advice!

I can probably find the part numbers to give you a better idea exactly which parts i'm talking about if it helps. Of course, the job i'm referring to may be super-easy, I've just never done it and am hoping to learn how to before I attempt to do it myself.
Thanks for your help!
