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.
Or
  • 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.

Good luck. I hope this helps.

Show me how to pull the control panel out


The control panel is fixed to the stainless steel inner panel. You will need either a phillips or a T20 torx screwdriver depending on what fixing have been used. You will need to take out all the screws which line up with the control panel plastics. There is usually one in the left and right sided at the top of the inner frame also. The screw by the door lock along the top will have to come off if it has one. Looking at this unit it is an older design so it should do.

Now sometimes you will need to loosen off the screws holding the front decor panel a bit, I normally loosen the top and middle ones enough to free up the control panel a bit to jiggle it out of position. It is easier to take this decor right off and get the control panel out but takes longer.

Now if you have the unit I think you do the plastics on the control module will be quite brittle so be careful not break it if you need to check it for some reason. There are a few plastic clips around the module which clip it into the metal frame. The metal frame clips into the display fasia. You should see the clips round the edge of the metal frame which are tricky to get off sometimes. Once you have the display plastics separated, then you can un clip the module from the metal frame. As I said be careful especially of the buttons.

Also be careful not to pull on the cables to much if removing witht he decor panel still on the unit. The edge of the metal may cut into the wires.

As with any work on electrical equipment, please stay safe and make sure the unit is unplugged.

How do you remove the front facia door of a Teknik integral dishwasher


I have just replaced the facia on mine. It is a TKD795/4 so I would imagine yours would be very similar. Around the inside of the door are 10 starhead screws; 4 along the top and 3 down each side. On mine it is the 2 end screws along the top and the 2 middle screws down the sides that hold the facia on. It is best to remove one screw at a time to establish which ones hold the facia on and which hold the door together. The short screws hold the door together and should be replaced and left in place. It is the longer screws that hold the facia on; these only need to be undone enough to release the facia panel. Once you have undone the relevant screws, the facia will lift up enabling you to release the 2 clips at the bottom. Replacement is reverse of removal. 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.

Fitting a new front panel to the NEFF 54432 integrated dishwasher


My Neff integrated dishwasher has two holding screws in the top corners and then two hidden screms half way down the side behind plastic covers. Loosen these side screws, remove the top two corner screws and then the door cover/panel should lift out of two lugs at the bottom.

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...

How to get to the control panel


Bosh is very tricky. You will probably have to remove the outer door panel first. #15 Torx screws all around the inside of the door panel. Support the panel with your feet while you remove the bottom two screws. (Do those last!) Close the door. Then slide the door panel down about 1 in and pull away at the bottom. Notice the two plastic blocks near the bottom of the door and how they fit onto the door frame (they never stay in place!)
If the console is not loose already, remove the two #15 Torx screws on the upper sides of the door panel.
When putting it back together, put in the screws across the top of the console first, then the door panel, then the rest of the screws.
Good luck!

Bosch dishwasher


1st pull the 6 screws holding on the outer door panel. Then the 4 screws you already did. Look now at the side of the inner door at the top and you will see 1 screw on each side. Remove these and the panel will fall off.
