Bosch SHV45M03UC dishwasher door leaking

I have a fully integrated Bosch SHV45M03UC dishwasher that is leaking form the top right of the door. Mostly steam is leaking but looking at posts the common solutions do not apply in this circumstance.. 1) the stem vent is not blocked, will leak when empty. 2) not too much soap, will leak when empty. 3) door seal is ok Etc...
What I do notice is that the door does not seem to be shutting tightly enough. I can push on the door during a cycle and hear the cycle get noticeable quieter. Leaving me to believe that the door is just not closing tight enough.Is there an adjustment to the latch to tighten the seal the door makes when closing?

Pull the seal that is on the tank 1/2 way out then close the door. This will make sure the door is tight to the seal. This happens sometimes that the seal becomes flattened. I have been using this trick on Bosch dishwashers since this series came out in 1997.

How do I remove the control panel safely?

Turn off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker panel.

Open the dishwasher door and start taking out the screws along the inside perimeter of the door. The door should then start coming apart for you.

If I remember this model correctly, it has a false front that can be removed (once you have removed the long screws holding it), by lifting up on the handle attached to the false front and pulling up and towards you.

Remember which screws go where, because I seem to recall that this unit has different sized screws.

Good luck!

Dishwasher do not start up

Most likely the door is not shut properly or the door latch switch is faulty. I will assume the water is turned on and the power is connected. Also check the delay start is not programmed.

How do you mount a wood door on this dishwasher?? Archie

Bosch offers a kit for installing a wood panel in place of the normal outer door panel. Based on the limited amount of clearance between the bottom of the outer door panel and the toe panel, I would suggest using the kit offered from Bosch. You will also need the last 2 digits of the model # to get the correct kit. After the UC, there is a /, followed by a 2 digit number. This is also needed.

On a further note, you may also need stronger springs as a wood panel is much heavier than the normal outer panel. You do not want the door just falling open, it is a good way to bend the door hinges.

Bosch dishwasher is leaking fresh water from water inlet assembly


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
