If you're having a hard time opening and closing the door to your dishwasher, you may have a problem with the hinge. This isn't a huge issue, but it can prevent you from loading and unloading any dirty or clean dishes.
In this tutorial, you'll find out how to replace the door hinge to a Hotpoint dishwasher. This is a relatively easy fix and doesn't require a ton of work. A few tools, a new hinge, and maybe an hour or two and that's it. Before attempting to do this, check your appliance's manual to see if this is similar or what you might have to do differently. Good luck and enjoy!
