You mean the two at the top front of the sides of the dishwasher. They should pop out with gentle easing with a small screw driver.

    depends on the design my dishwasher has two holes where you screw in a screw to hold the washer in place against the wooden cavity of the kitchen and then put the covers back on.

How do you pull out the dishwasher - have hideous ants & need to put diatomaceous earth behind it.

  • Turn off and disconnect the water line from under your sink.
  • Disconnect the drain line from either the air gap or the garbage disposal.
  • If the dishwasher power cord is plugged into a receptacle you will need to unplug that.
  • If it is hard wired into the dishwasher you will need to turn the power off at your house breaker. Please be careful and make sure you have the power truly off by confirming with your dishwasher. Set it to a cycle and make sure its dead.
  • There is an access panel at the bottom of your dishwasher to locate the junction box where the power is connected.
  • (If you have enough cord/drain hose/ water supply inlet hose, you sometimes can just pull the dishwasher straight out. Without having to disconnect anything. )
  • You will need to remove the access panel usually by either two 1/4 inch screws or a phillips some of the new access panels use plastic keepers just turn those from the vertical position to a horizontal position and they just pop right out. Now you can access the junction box where the power goes in.
  • You need to remove the mounting screws at the top of the dishwasher under the counter.
  • The dishwasher should be ready to pull straight out.
I hope this helps

Why won't the door latch?

Make sure the door is not hitting the sides of your cabinet. Also make sure it is not hitting the screws that hold the mounting tabs (located at the top of your dishwasher) to your counter-top. If that's okay, try removing the racks and see if the door will close then. If still no, then you might have a broken latch or bent or broken hinges.

Location of knock sensor grand Cherokee

Usually at the back of the block on top. Remove connector and unscrew it. The mount location may or may not enter the water jacket, it does not need to be in contact with any fluids. So if nothing comes out of the hole, do not worry.

We are installing a dishwasher--have it hooked up but can't seem to get the leveling legs loose so we can adjust the height. Also, the anchoring peices of metal stick out farther than our countertop.

Hello, This dishwasher has the ability to be mounted to the cabinets on either side of the dishwasher.the mounting brackets can be moved to each side. If it must be mounted to the counter top, the mounting tabs can be bent by hand and it will break the front part of the mounting tab. This will shorten the mounting bracket. If you have granite counter tops do not attempt to drill into to the granite counter call a granite fabicator. The leveling feet are hexagon shaped at the top of the of the leveling leg. Remove the front lower toe kick panel. This will allow access to the top of the leveling legs,then use a small cresent wrench or a socket and rachet.Hope this helps.Joe Connolly

Dishwasher is not draining correctly in the air vent on top of sink. Recently had a new garbage disposal installed and this is the first time using the dishwasher since installation of disposal.

Hi and welcome to Fixya, I'd suggest you start by checking the drain spout of the disposer where they ( the installer ) connected the drain hose from the dishwasher and make sure they've knocked out the plug in the spout. **Turn off the power or unplug the disposer/garberator before performing any service** If the plug is not punched out, with the aid of a long screw driver and a hammer, or a firm smack with the palm of your hand you should be able to knock out the plug. Then reach in the disposer and remove the plug you`ve just knocked out, reconnect the drain hose for your dishwasher and you should be good to go. Thank you for visiting "fixya". Please take a moment to rate the solution provided here for you. Hope that help`s. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Dishwasher will not drain- just replaced old, clogged garbage dis

Hi, If your dishwasher drain line is attaching to the disposer than you'll need to insure the "knock out" in the disposer upper end bell where the drain connect's is indeed knocked out. You can do this by removing the d/w drain at the disposer, then reaching in with a long screw driver and with the palm of your hand give it a quick firm punch. Once the knock out pop's out you'll need to reach in the garb and remove the piece of plastic from the knock out. This is a common step overlooked, so if that is the only problem don't be embarrassed, I see it at least once a month or more. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your solution's. If you found this helpful please allow a second for a positive rating, if it wasn't helpful let me know and I'll try to expand on possible causes and remedies. Good luck. macmarkus :)

The top spray arm keep knocking

you could have a water deposit build op inside of the arm itself or the bushing that is in the arm at the mounting screw is worn causing the movement. Both are easy fixes. Remove the arm which should be mounted by a reverse threaded srew and check the balance by taking a pencil and marking the arm in the center (measure the arm and split the difference) place the arm on the pencil at the mark it should balance itself if not the side that dropped has calcium build up and can be cleaned by water hose and a little shaking. The bushinf should be a plastic coller that sits in the hole of the arm on the mounted side facing upwards. This bushing can be purchased at any appliance repair shop. Good Luck on your repairs

Securing Bosch SHU 4300 under "hard" countertops

If this is a new Bosch Dishwasher then there should be two metal tabs that protrude from the top of the tub above the door. These tabs are for top mounting the dishwasher to a wood countertop, however these tabs also can be relocated to side mount the dishwasher to the cabinetry. The way to do this is to pull the dishwasher out of the hole it is in, in the counter (be careful not to pull too hard or to move the machine out too far due to the length of the water and electric lines). just pull it out easy till you can see the tabs, Now using a pair of pliers, bend the tabs on the backside of the mounts straight so you can remove them from the framing of the dishwasher. Next look at the tabs there should be a perforation where you can use 2 pairs of pliers to snap the tabs off at the perforation, after snapping off these tabs, look at the sides of the dishwasher and you will see a slot where you can reattach the tabs into, and bend the tabs in the back to hold them in place. If you look at the rubber gasket material on both sides of the machine - you can see where the round holes are located for side mounting. Attach the tabs and gently push the machine back into the cabinetry. Now using a small drill bit, drill a pilot hole into both sides of the cabinets to mount the dishwasher. You want to drill these pilot holes so as not to split the counter facing when you drill in the screws. Using the Bosch screws that came with the dishwasher (or small flat phillips screws) slowly screw in the screws into the sides of the cabinetry. When you attempt to remove the machine from the cabinetry you may find that it is adjusted tight to the countertop. If this is the case you will need to remove the 2 screws that hold the kickplate in at the bottom of the dishwasher in the front and remove the kickplate. Then you will need to bring up the front legs on both the left and the right and also the rear leg which is adjusted up and down by using a flat blade screwdriver. Look at the front of the dishwasher, behind the kickplate and there will be a adjusting screw with arrows which point left to right. the direction you turn this screw will determine which way the dishwasher will adjust,- right adjusts the machine higher and left lower. Good luck!!!!!! Hope this helps.

I need to unplug and move a built-in Maytag dishwasher

Follow these steps:

1. Locate the electrical service breaker for your appliance and turn it off at the breaker panel. If it is plugged in by a serivce outlet, unplug the unit.
2. Turn off the water source under the sink.
3. Disconnect the drain line under the sink.
4. Remove the lower panel under the dishwasher door.
5. Locate the small electrical junction box under the dishwasher and disconnect the wires leads. Remember, standard household wiring is as follows: BLACK (HOT - 110-120VAC), WHITE (NEUTRAL - 0VAC, GREEN (or bare copper) is GROUND. Make sure you reconnect the wires in this fashion with wire lug nuts. If you have a local outlet plug you may leave the wiring instact.
6. Locate the fill valve (Usually on the left hand side of the dishwasher). This is where the water supply line connects. Disconnect the water supply line from the fill valve.
7. The dishwasher should have a couple of mounting screws located where the top of the dishwasher cabinet meets the underside of the cabinet.
8. With everything removed, the dishwasher should now be free and slide out from under the cabinet.

Let me know if you have further questions. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You can also remove the water supply line at the fitting under the sink if it makes things easier.
