Door Balance Link Kit 8194001 keeps breaking
Model Number: KUDS01FLSS1 Brand:
Kitchen Aid Age:
5 - 10 years
I recently purchased a home with a Stainless Steel Kitchenaid KUDS01FLSS1 Dishwasher. As many have posted, the door would slam open. It was clear by the broken shards of white plastic, and strings laying on the ground that I needed part 8194001. I replaced both sides easily and thought all was right with the world. 3 weeks later the left side popped, another month later the right side popped. Very frustrating. It seems this part is doomed to failure. In both cases the plastic breaks around the string. Is there a newer metal version, or any other kit that could be used that lasts longer than a couple months? Thoughts?
