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.
