I do not know the make or model of your Dishwasher but on most makes the screws on the inside edge of door are utilised.Normally the bottom edge and top edge,sometimes you can tell by the type of screw head or rust.Some model may have a small plastic plug in the side edge of door and if removed you will gain access to the screws.

Hope this helps.

I found a great site where they have decorative covers for your appliances without all the hassle of removing any panels. The covers simply fit over the existing. Worth checking out.

Hi - heres the instructions for you - have fun.....

Removal of Cabinet

(Do not use decorative panel to move the machine)

1. Isolate power supply.

4. Remove two screws from bottom sides of cabinet rear.

5. Remove the top screws on left and right hand sides of the cabinet rear.

7. Remove five screws securing the stainless steel frame to cabinet wrapper at front of machine. These are located behind the sound gasket and service panel.

Refitting: Refit in reverse manner.

6.10 Removal of Hinge Assemblies

(Do not use decorative panel to move machine)

Location: The hinge assemblies are located either side of the door and retained by means of two rivets on each side to the inner door panel.

1. Remove service & decorative panels (refer Section 6.1).

2. Remove outer door panel (refer Section 6.2).

3. Remove cabinet (refer Section 6.7).

4. Remove door tension springs (refer Section 6.8).

The door of my Miele G646 SCI semi-integrated dishwasher has suddenly become stiff to move up or down. I am guessing there is a problem with the spring? Any suggestions what to try or how to get access?

Most probably the decor door has swollen and catching on adjoining cabinets. removed decor door via two screws down the left and right hand side of door and see if that helps. If springs snaps then the door will drop very quickly and take the skin off you shins

Need to remove decorative door panel

There are two main ways to remove it.
  • There should be screws on metal trim the side and or bottom of the dishwasher door. Take those out and it should come right off.
  • There are screws on the back of the door screwed in to the front of the door. Remove the screws and it should come off.

Now this is say IF it was installed properly and not clued or screwed on by just anyone.

Good luck. I hope this helps.

We have a bosch integrated dishwasher with a broken handle. We can't get the cover off to replace it! There are no visible screws on door front and I am unsure about unscrewing the metal panel door in case...

On mine there is a 5mm hole on each side of the metal part of the door, about one third of the way down. Inside is a torx screw. Loosen these off a few turns and you should be able to pull the top of the decor panel towards you, (away from the door, not up). Then lift it up to release it from the lugs at the bottom of the door.
That works for mine - yours may be a different model, but it's likely to use a similar mechanism.

Removing decor door

With the door open all of the way you should see a series or torx 20 (small star shaped round head) screws around the perimeter of the inner stainless steel door panel. The outer door is usually held on by the topmost 2 screws on the outer corners and 1 on either side of the door in the second position up from the bottom of the door. There may also be a catch under the panel which will require the door to be slid upwards a little.

Be careful when the panel releases as there is about 15 to 20 pounds of spring pressure and the door may want to snap shut.

There may also be a small plastic cap on either side of the door panel about 8 inches from the top. Under these caps is a screw which clamps the door panel down. It will have to be loosened or removed if there.

There is no danger in removing all of the torx screws from the inner panel if the door still will not release.

This is for the standard installation but bear in mind that not everyone follows the instructions when installing the panels...
