Take off the front panel (10 little screws, two shims will fall out) and you'll see the two handle bolts on the inside of the panel. Tighten 'em; reinstall the panel (good luck figuring out how the shims go back...)

BAD CONTROL BOARD TO TEST TO SEE IF THIS IS THE ISSUE RUN TEST PROGRAM
To start test program, press and hold both SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO program buttons, then turn unit on by
pressing ON/OFF button. Initially, control module version # will be displayed (e.g./ “20” = version 0 without jumper). When
wash program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button.
To check each program indicator light, press its button. To check Cycle Countdown display, Refill Rinse Agent light and
REGULAR WASH light, press REGULAR WASH button (press Delay Start button to test Cycle Countdown display
alone). Cycle Countdown display will show "88" when REGULAR WASH button is pressed and "8h" when Delay Start
button is pressed.
To start testing, press both SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO buttons a second time. When testing has ended,
Cycle Countdown display will show a fault using codes below. If more than one fault occurs, code numbers will be added
together, (e.g./ “6” = faults 2 + 4).
0 = No faults detected 2 = Heating fault 8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault
1 = Aqua Sensor ("Sensotronic") fault 4 = Filling fault F = Filling fault (display occurs during wash, not test)
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil,
measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays
at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), display will show fault code "4" and unit will continually fill and drain where
testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), display will show "0", water won't heat (to 150ºF) and
water won’t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), display will show fault code "8" immediately and
testing will end shortly after water has started circulating

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher soap dispenser
all you have to do is take a flathead screwdriver and look at the dispenser it has a locking metal around thecase where the dispenser goes. it a press in and listen to it click thats when you know that section is in.the plastic around the dispenser is the section where it snaps in. also unplug the dispenser. its only one plug in. very easy but atrick that i use is make sure the rubber gasket is lubricated with something like dish soap.when installing it you have to push hard and listen for the snaps .nyc appliance repair can handle at 1-888-692-1055 based in nyc

Welcome to FixYa.
This has become a popular issue with the newer style Bosch dishwasher, and I don`t know if this is the case in your situation, however if using "cubed" or "gel pack" type detergents the dispenser will often get stuck therefore preventing opening.
At a recent service seminar for the Bosch SHX/SHE "Evolution/Ascenta" series dishwasher`s I attended, it was suggested if a client is using the "cubed/gel pack" or even liquid detergent either place the cubes directly into the bottom of the dishwasher or in the case of liquid, switch to powder detergent since both liquid and cubes seem to have an issue of causing this problem.
I understand from experience of presenting this with many clients it may at first appear inconvenient or unacceptable, and many will balk at the idea. Unfortunately it is a reality and no physical repair to the machine will remedy the issue.
Try the suggestion and let me know how you find the unit performs. In my experience the unit actually will perform better actually, as the detergent`s nowadays without "phosphate" require a longer period to dissolve completely and therefore often don`t work nearly as well when being dispensed from the "cup/dispenser".
I`ll watch for your reply on the result or if you need further assistance. Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info provided here today and a testimony if you feel it`s warranted.
