la lavadora de platos se inclinará si la base se retira.

STEP 3 – CHECK DOOR BALANCE
• With dishwasher on the wood skid, check the door balance
by opening and closing the door.
• If the door drops when released, increase the spring tension.
If the door rises when released, decrease the tension.
• There are two types of counterbalance and therefore two
methods of adjustment. Identify which counterbalance is
present and adjust tension accordingly. Please note: If there
are 3 holes on the cable, use the cable to adjust; if there is
one hole on cable, use the tub leg to adjust.

After adjusting spring tension, open and close the door to
make sure the door operates smoothly. If the door is hard
to move or if the spring cable binds, check the routing of
the spring cable. The cable should be routed between the
shoulders of the pulley cable roller. If the cable is off the roller:
latch door, remove spring tension and route the cable between
the shoulders of the roller. See Figure J.
