There is no adjustment to the door hinges. If your hinges are failing they will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: bad odor when open door after cycle

This is just a suggestion, run a cycle and after a few mins of it washing, open the door and add a cup of bleach and let the washer run. See if this helps.

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 adjust the door tension on a Bosch SHU 6802 undercounter dishwasher to keep it from falling open


you cant change the tension more likely one of the ropes attached to door spring has snapped so you are only getting counterbalance from one spring not two.

Door hinge tension adjustment


You have to change the springs at the bottom back.It; s easy.You must buy the item 0509 at this page or anyother you like http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Bosch-Parts/All-Products-Parts/Model-SHX45P05UC60/1794/0130000/1010702P/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
Then you must access the bottom side of the base of dishwasher and with a screwdriver pull off the old springs.After this you will see a cordon that you must remove it and connect this to the new springs.

We have a 16 month old Bosch SHE 4AM15UC/01 model dishwasher. The soap dispenser doesn't open most of the time. Does not seem to be dirty or clogged. Any thoughts?


Check the soap door for free opening. No friction in the hinge. Otherwise there may be little alignment problem. You may have to access that the rely latch area and adjust !!

Hi, I have a small leak at the bottom right hand corner of the door. If you push in on the door while it's running it stops and the noise level goes down. Is there an adjustment for the door or would it...


No adjustment. Try cleanig door gasket. If still leaks hinge probably got bent from leaning on door. Or door got bent. Needs to be taken apart to find cause for problem.

Oven door hinge


Hi Monica. Use a flat blade screw driver to pry the hinge back into the open position. Once you have done that, I recommend that you enlist the aid of a friend to help you slide the door back on as it really is a two person job. Regards, Joe

I want to fit a wooden door to a intagrated dishwasher stoves


If your dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif door is not closing properly or has developed a leak, it may be time to replace the entire door assembly. Some other signs of a defective door include sagging, difficulty pulling the door back up into a closed position and a door that feels heavier as it drops open. Replacing a dishwasher door is not that hard, but includes several springs and hinges that must be aligned correctly or the door will not fit correctly in the opening.
  1. tep 1 Unplug the dishwasher and shut off the water before attempting to remove any parts. If you cannot reach the electrical outlet, you can turn off the breaker switch that controls the electricity for the kitchen. Remove the drain hose that runs from the dishwasher unit to the sink drain.
  2. Step 2 Pull the dishwasher out from the cabinet until you have clear access to the side of the unit. Ask a friend for help with this part if the unit is too heavy for you to slide out without straining your back.
  3. Step 3 Check your dishwasher's owner's manual to find out exactly how the outer door panels are removed. Some models have a two-panel door where the control panel must be removed before the lower panel will come off. Otherwise, the door panel should be one solid piece or a two-piece assembly that allows the lower section to be removed separately to access the springs and hinges.
  4. Step 4 Remove the springs at the bottom of the door. Depending on the type of dishwasher you have, there may be a tension adjustment dial or simply a series of holes at different distances from the edge of the unit. If you have a tension controller, adjust it to a loose setting to make it easier to remove the door springs. Unhook the door springs from the hinge plate. Some dishwashersmag-glass_10x10.gif may have a cable and pulley system attached to the door springs. Check your owner's manual for removal instructions if this is the case with your model.
  5. Step 5 Use pliers to gently pull back on the door hinge plate's tab until the slot opens for the hinge pin to come out. Take out the screws holding the door hinge plate onto the front of the door panel. Hold onto the door assembly while gradually opening the door. Once the door drops down, you should be able to remove it by sliding the door off the hinge pinAlways wear safety glasses when working with the springs and hinges involved with a dishwasher door assembly. These items can fly off at high speed and cause serious injury to the eye.

Leaking door on Bosch dishwasher


I DONT THINK THERE IS A ASSEMBLY MANUAL BUT THE DOOR HINGES IS LOCATED UNDER THE LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE OF THE MACHINE. YOU HAVE TO CHECK THE HINGE PULLEY THEN CHECK THE LOCK.

The door on my dishwasher will not close


There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges. 1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps
