Stainless Steel are alloys that are made up of iron and generally contain around 11.5% chromium. The addition of chromium allows the alloy to form a protective self-healing oxide film, thereby making them resistant to corrosion and oxidation even at extremely high temperatures. Due to this feature, stainless steel is used for making products across many fields. For obtaining special properties, nickel and other elements can be added to this alloy.

Stainless Steel has excellent resistance to corrosion, protection against corrosion, hygienic material, good strength and ductility, ease of fabrication, ease of maintenance, excellent durability. Therefore, it is used in different industries such as Food industry, Pharmaceutical industry, Petrochemical industry, Automotive industry, Construction industry, Oil and Gas industry, Medical field, Water and sewage systems, Aviation engine components, Nuclear industry.

There are many (>100) standard stainless steel alloys. The most commonly used stainless steel alloys in appliances are "austenitic" - these have a higher chromium content and added nickel. The nickel modifies the physical structure of the steel and makes it non-magnetic.

Rust spots appearing on the front doors of my Bosch refrigerator


Stainless steel does rust - or at least that is the theory.

There is in fact two types of stainless steel; the original categorised austenitic which is instantly recognised due to it being unable to attract a magnet due to the absence of iron. Austenitic is relatively expensive and difficult to work but adding iron in various quantities to the alloy produces a cheaper, lighter metal that looks good and is easier to work while still providing some resistance to corrosion. The more iron that is added to the ferritic type of stainless, the lighter, cheaper and easier it is to work but the corrosion resistance is substantially reduced.

Cars have been fitted with stainless steel exhaust systems of the ferritic type for many years and although they last a long time they soon show surface rust and sometimes will rust through.

I expect your fridge wipes are either acid or alkaline that are suitable only for austenitic and good grades of ferritic and Bosch have used a particularly poor grade of stainless. I expect fridge magnets stick very well...

Mild discolouration could be removed with a mild abrasive cleaner though that would tend to ruin the brushed finish. Clearly future cleaning should be carried out with a neutral ph cleaner and the surface protected with a hard wax polish.

I suggest you check the cleaning instructions in the Bosch instruction book. If you feel you have done nothing wrong you might be able to claim from your household insurer as accidental damage. It would be a good idea to inform the manufacturer of the cleaning wipes...

How do I tighten the door handle on my Bosch dishwasher model SHY56A 05UC/14?


Remove front panel then you can access the handle screws. Open the door and remove the 'torx' screws surrounding the perimeter of the door.

Stainless panel for Kenmore 3631532 dishwasher?


I have two options for you to consider. One is to take your panel to any sheet metal fabricating shop and have them make a stainless steel version for you. The other is to get a spray can of stainless steel appliance paint and apply it. i have used the stainless steel paint on entire appliances with excellent results.

Want to replace painted front panel with stainless steel


The installation instructions and the Owner's Manual do not say how to replace the panel.  It may not be possible to change without replacing the entire door.
Look for trim near the top of the door that is attached by screws.  If the trim can be removed the old panel can be slid up and out and the new panel can be slid in.  Alternatively look for side trim piece(s) that might be removable allowing the panel to be slid in.

Can I get a different front door for my dishwasher?


From what I could gather, it appears that there may be a door panel kit available for your dishwasher. The kit appears to have the panel kit and the curved handle included. Some links for visual reference:

SGZ1006UC Stanless w/curved Handle
