Squeaky Dishwasher Door

Our dishwasher door's hinges sqeak when opened. Is it a matter of spraying WD-40 on the springs. (How are the acessed) or is it somewhere else?
Thanks-

Without a brand/model number, it's hard to tell you how to access the springs or if springs even exist.
One suggestion off the top of my head would be to look for arched support brackets near the bottom of the door, one on each side. Perhaps a spritz of WD-40 on these brackets might help.

I had this same problem. Hinges were squeaking very loudly. Was after we had our floors refinished and there had been a lot of dust(mayor may not have been the problem). DO not use WD40 or oil. The problem for me related to the nylon cord and plastic pulleys on either side of the dishwasher door at the bottom. You should be able to see these without taking the dishwasher apart or you may have to remove the bottom panel (couple of screws - easy to remove. The oil / wd 40 does not work well and may actually make your problem worse. With nylon and plastic you should use a lubricant with solids. I went to an auto supply store and bought "The Dry Lube" made with PFTE by Blaster Products (www.blasterproducts.com). I sprayed the cord and pulleys (bottom sides near hinges of the door) and the problem was solved.
