a few years back I noticed the door wouldn't close all the way.  My wife found an article online from a do it yourselfer that reccomended removing the door and padding out the screws holding the hinge with washers, thereby altering the angle at which the hinges sat (rater than addressing the underlying problem directly)  

I did this, and it worked for over a year, but now the problem has returned and is getting worse.  do I need to just replace the springs/hinges?  Is there a late that might be bent?  I didn't dig to deep into the door for fear of not being able to restore the needed tension without breaking something or someone.  Any thoughts?  Do you have this repair manual?

Thanks

You have worn door hinges, no way to correct this other than replacing the hinges.

You mean the part numbers for the door hinges, is that what you are looking for?

There should be a slash followed by two numbers after your model number so I can give you the link to your door hinges.

Scott,

The sticker on the back reads: HGS7052UC/16037129.  Does that make sense?

Check under the bottom edge of the control panel for the correct model/serial identification sticker.  Depending on your complete model number, there may be a hinge kit available P/N Part number: 683867

Part number: 683867

, but this kit is only for the early models UC/01 & UC/03.
