GE Dishwasher Door Falls

Older style GE dishwashers have a door spring and a door cable on each side of the door that holds the door from falling to the floor when opened. After a while these cables and springs can wear out causing the door to fall lower than it should. When replacing the door cable you should always replace both sides at the same time and possibly replace the springs as well.
