Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
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.

Wash Cycle Options
Delay Start (model dependent):
This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up
to 19 hours.
The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the
"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation
measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation
requirements are met.
Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.
To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or
Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without
a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).
If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser
I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)
