SOURCE: dishwasher tils when door is open because the bracket is roken

There is now a universal dishwasher bracket for just this problem called E-Z DISHWASHER BRACKET. It is available through Braxton-Bragg or ask for it at a local granite fabricator. It is very simple to use.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Dishwasher Door Pops open during cycle

The problem seems to be the loosening of the screws that hold the interior stainless steel skin to the door frame--not the latch.

With the door in the open position you should find a total of twelve screws (5 on each side and 2 on top at each side of the latch). The screws have a particular type of head which may require a trip to the hardware (its a $1,000 dishwasher take the time to get the right screwdriver). They are called TORX screws the size on my dishwasher was a T 15. These type of screw heads were designed to fit automated torque drivers at the factory that set the screws to the proper tension. So some care should be given when you retighten them. Turn until the screw is snug and there no movement of the inner door skin but don't over tighten. Giving it that extra 1/4 turn can be enough to strip the screw out and create a bigger problem.

Yes--you shouldn't have to be doing this to a KitchenAid appliance that cost this much--but I suspect that this will become a feature of periodic maintenance. The heating and cooling generates enough movement that overtime these screws work themselves out. My wife who was the once to make the right diagnosis noticed that the screws at the bottom were almost entirely out.

SOURCE: Dishwasher falling forward

Open the door and look up at the leading edge of the dishwasher..you should see two metal eyelets that may or may not need to be bent up or swung into position. Take two sheetrock screws and screw one into each eyelet up into the underneath of your countertop that will hold it in place

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

SOURCE: I have a Bosch SHE 4AM12UC dishwasher. My problem

There is either food debris blocking the action of the dispenser lid, or the solenoid which releases the door is sometimes failing to operate. The latter fault can be due to either a faulty solenoid or a loose/damaged cable connection anywhere between the main board and the solenoid: bear in mind that every time the door opens and closes there's a flexible connector which gradually fatigues and there are electrical connections which can be loosened if the door is regularly allowed to slam shut.

Your machine is still in current production, so it may still be under the manufacturer's warranty. if so, then repairs will be free provided the fault is not due to a failure to follow the operating instructions.

It's not really a DIY fix unless you are a competent and experienced home appliance repairer, but you can check for any food debris around the dispenser lid. If in any doubt run the machine empty using dishwasher cleaner. The possible electrical faults I've mentioned aren't necessarily expensive in terms of parts, but the labour will typically be about one hour.

An alternative is to use the new detergent dispenser from Finish. This sits in your machine, preloaded with twelve doses of detergent which are automatically released with every wash. It's an expensive way to buy dishwasher detergent, but it's a quick and relatively cheap fix which may buy you time until you can afford a proper repair.

If you do think that you may be able to diagnose and repair the fault on a DIY basis then I highly recommend the Haynes Dishwasher Repair Manual which you can either buy or perhaps borrow from a public library.

I'm hope that you have found my reply to be of use, all that I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

How do I run a self diagnostic on Bosch Classic Electronic SGU53E75AU/86?


Before going to the controller it might be better to verify the heater or thermostat (NTC).
If you want to know the part details refer this schematic

http://www.bosch-home.co.uk/store/spareparts/Builtunderdishwasher/SGU53E75AU/86

It is interactive and you can switch between assembly drawings and parts lists. The heater and thermostat are drawing 4.

Detergent door opens prematurely.


Sounds to me like something is off time. Try opening it up and cleaning around all moving parts. Or maybe try resetting the whole machine.

My Bosch dishwasher has an E15 fault and is flashing check water


We read on google that a lady had this problem and we copied her instructions to see if it worked and am so pleased to say it did.
OUR PROBLEM WAS WE HAD E15 AND NO WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF OUR DISHWASHER, BUT THE PUMP STILL KEPT GOING ON AND OFF. EVEN WHEN THE ON/OFF BUTTON ON THE DISHWASHER WAS OFF.WE PULLED THE DISHWASHER OUT AND TILTED IT BACKWARDS (WHILST STILL ON), AND AFTER A MINUTE THE SETTING RETURNED TO NORMAL.So do try this before you call an engineer.

Bosch SHU3300 dishwasher stuck on hot water intake (w/ no power)


It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.

Bosch Dishwasher Water Not Heating


Depends on if it is the controller board (easy, just behind the door and requires a torx 20 screw driver) or if it is the heating element. The latter is easy, but time consuming, as it requires you to pull the dishwasher out, detach the bottom, tilt it on it's back, and remove pump,etc to get to it. Not difficult, just a bit time consuming.

Dishwasher starts, then won't move on from the "Empting" portion of the cycle


I am having trouble with my 5 year old Bosch. When I turn it on it is only on when the door is open. When I shut the door the computer believes it is off. I had a technician come and he tested the switch (which was fine) and said the problem must be in the computer. Then then quoted me $350 to fix it. I would rather buy the computer myself @ $120 and install it. What is your opinion?

Bosch Dishwasher odor


I have a new Bosch dishwasher which smells up the whole kitchen when the door is opened (between washings). Someone should ban their sales.
