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 www.applianceart.com? 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.

Is there a stainless steel door panel replacement for bosch dishwasher shx43c02uc


If there isn't, you might try having a local metal shop cut you a piece of stainless, fold and weld the edges to make a cover for the door and adhere it either with epoxy or a small tack-weld. I wound up having to have a cover made for my Mom's stainless-steel fridge when only white and black ones were available and a metal shop doesn't charge much for it.

Alternately, if the metal panel is housed in a frame, try taking apart the frame, removing the panel and flipping it over. They usually just paint the one side, and if the other side is bare metal, such as aluminum, you can use sandpaper to give it a brushed finish and some clear-coat spray paint to give it that shiny stainless look and durability. Then just reassemble the door with the stainless-looking side facing outwards and the wrong-color side facing in. Worked for Mom's dishwasher!

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 searspartsdirect.com. 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:

pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

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

Changing my door panel for another colors


Well you can get a stainless steel panel cusot-made at www.applianceart.com. They have a lot of options. One of them is stainless. The options are a vinyl sticker, a magnet, static cling or the actual stainless panel. Most are $39 and the metal is $99 I think. 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!)

If i have a problem with my mdb7601aww dishwasher door can i replace it with a stainless steel door instead of the white door


When I searched the parts list for your dishwasher, I only found the door panel available in white but call the manufacturer and ask them because I believe you may be able to change to stainless.

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.
