Bosch Dishwasher Door Leaking Steam

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?

    I have the same problem on a new SHX43. Steam is released at top right corner.   New counter top was installed prior to first use.  Steam damaged wood counter top support.

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.

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.

Hi, I have a Maytag Mdb8959sas dishwasher that was leaking during a normal wash cycle. I pulled the dishwasher out from under the counter and saw that it appears to be leaking directly below the point...


I will assume that you have cleaned gasket around door and at washer. Quite often a build up of scale at lower gasket surfaces is all that is causing leak.

FRIGIDAIRE DISHWASHER LEAKING FROM TOP LEFT CORNER OF DOOR IN THE VENT AREA


Typically in this area of the dishwasher door there should not be any leaking. You might be experiencing severe steam and condensation from a cycle that has been completed. You may also go to open the door after a cycle is completed, and a little residual water will escape out of the vent that is angled downward.

Unknown control panel symbols bosch dishwasher super silent


Wash Cycle Options

Delay Start (model dependent):



This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up

to 19 hours.

Sanitize:



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

drying additive.



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! :)

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.
