Hey fleg9bo,,,

OK, I see what you are talking about. I have never run into any of those Ropa-A-Dope things. In Whirlpool and Maytag Dishwasher, and/or Stove Doors I have only seen this type of Door-Hinge-Cam attached to the Door-Frame, with the other end of the Spring attached to frame, like here:

But hey, live and learn,,, that Ropa-A-Dope thingy sounds/looks a little hokey, to me!!!

However apparently some other Dishwasher Brands/Models also use the Ropa-A-Dope thingy!!! Don't know why they want to make something pretty simple, so complicated???
