getting at detergent cup spring on GE
Model Number: GSD830P-35WA Brand:
More than 10 years
The detergent cup fails to open on my GE GSD830P-35WA. I am having trouble figuring out how to get to the spring to replace it. It is behind the latch, but I don't see how to remove the latch. The detergent cup lid rotates on a plastic shaft that goes through the inner door, and the latch looks like it fits on the shaft. There is a small removable plug in the center of the shaft, but after removing it I can't pull the latch off to get at the spring. From the diagram for the model, it looks like the shaft/handle for the detergent cup goes through the detergent cup lid, with the latch fitting on at the end, so it seems as if it should just pull off after removing the small plug, but it won't simply pull off for me. Is there a trick to separating the latch from the cup lid's shaft so that I can get to the spring? Thanks for any help.
