Okay here we go. The SHU43C05UC/17 is the stainless model. The parts needed to change over to SS are 1) 431828 SS Facia cost 72.80. 1) 417981 power switch button 15.40. 1) 426062 program buttons set 5.40. 1) 214750 SS outer door panel 101.50. 1) 426063 lid (fits inside the handle area) 3.90. As you see it will not be cheap to change over to a SS dw. These prices are from Bosch's Quick Finder website. Hope this helps.

    Hello DGenovese sorry about the question I asked as it didn't refer to this here about changing the panels. When you open the door there on the outer edge on the inside of the SS inner door liner is 6 (torx 20) screws holding on the outer door panel. There will be 2 blocks inside there that will fall off the hinges, however they only go on 1 way. Now across the top of the inner door is 4 (torx 20) screws that have to be removed & look at the left and right side 1 screw (torx 20) per side. Now the control panel drops down. Release the clips on the lower facia and it comes off. i will see if I can add the service manual (general) to Fix Ya. Have a good day.

Have you looked at they have several options that may be easier for you. I think there may be some options that will do EXACTLY what you are looking to do at a fraction of the cost. Gie it a try.

Need a part number

The part number for the door handle on this model dishwasher is either:

W10142998 (STAINLESS)
W10142999 (BLACK)
W10143000 (WHITE)

The handle is listed as item 14 under the "Door and Panel Parts" section at The part numbers are based on the color, so make sure you use the correct number to get the matching handle for your dishwasher. The kit inlcudes all the mounting hardware as well.

You can check these others sites as well to compare prices:

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

On my Kenmore Elite #106.56683501 the refrigerator door is loose

Depending on the model, and the color, here's your fix.

Stainless with stainless handles- you'll need a hex key. The tiny hole is on the inside of the handle, close to the center. Turn the key until it's tightened.

Stainless with black handle/white/bisque/black- push the door handle up. Careful not to scratch the finish! once the handle pops, pull it straight off. Take a phillips head screw driver, tighten the top screw A LITTLE BIT and then attach again. Insert screws on the door into the holes on the handle, slide down. (will need to be a little tough with it.)
Good luck!

White to stainless

Black, white and bisque seem to be the only colors available for the double convection oven. Might be possible to find the cooktop, but it's hard to know for sure without the model number.

In my experience, it's often not economical to switch to stainless steel as stainless steel panels can be extremely expensive (I've seen a freezer door on a side by side fridge sell for over $850... Just the freezer door!)

Front panel color

I have the use&care guide for this unit. It explains how to change the panels - I also notice in ebay that you can order generic stainless ones. I'm going to remove my white panel to install the stainless.
