The handle is coming loose. Can I unscrew the front door panel from the inside to tighten the handle from the inside without causing further problems. It looks like all the electronics are held in by the screws.

Re: handle coming loose
If you only remove the 4(T20 torx) along the flat edge this will only remove the outer door panel. Start from the top and work down. Also if yours has 2 blocks that fall out, they go on the hinge only 1 way.

Depends on the brand and type of handle. I'll give you a few general ideas. The first easy one is to look under both ends of the handle for small set screws. If you see them, a small allen wrench should tighten the set screws and the handle. The next type requires the removal of either the inner door panel or outer panel. Some dishwashers will have screws along the inner edge of the door panel. you remove the screws and either the inner panel will come loose or the outer panel will come off (depends on make and model) Once the door is apart you should be able to see the handle screws to tighten. Some doors also have a screw in both bottom corners facing upward that may need removed . Best I can do at this time.
This model comes with two types of doors. One with a single panel with integrated control on top or a two part door with control unit in front. The handle varies.
If you have a single door panel with handle bar across from right to left then you need to carefully unscrew the back panel screws and free up the front panel. the handle is screwed to the front panel from inside. Once you tighten carefully put the back door panel in and tighten. Take photos along the way to make sure you get back where you started. Also unplug dishwasher before working on it.
If you have a two part door with front control then handle and access to it is different. See diagram on this website for blow up of the panel and location of handle (part 713).
Open the door and loosen the self threading screws around the sides of the inner door panel. Once this has been achieved lift the inner panel up so that you can access the door handle screws. Tighten these fasteners and reassemble the door panel.
if its just the handle itself it sounds like the fixing clips have come adrift or broken off,the handle strip will need replacing if its the whole console thats loose remove the outer door cover this will give you access to panel screws and may allow you to see more of the handle fitting inside.
Handle needs to be replaced part# 154537303 (blk). Un plug unit, take 4 screws from behind blk control panel out. Panel will fold down, remove two torx head screws from door latch, replace with new one and put it back together and your done.
I had the same problem with my Bosch dishwasher.I came to this web site to find out how to get the door off.I took the experts advice,placed 4 pillows on the floor in fromt,opened the door,took out the screws and the front panel dropped down.It was so easy,the plastic spacers stayed in place.I put a little J B weld on the handle screws and tighted the handle and put everything back together,12 minutes tops.Thanks for the help,thankful in Georgia
THIS IS THE SOLUTION!
I was having the same problem with my Monogram dishwasher and oven.
Here's what to do.
You must fully remove the handle from the appliance.
Down the barrel of the standoff is a hex screw that, when tightened with an allen wrench, will draw the standoff tight to the handle again.
There is no need to remove the end caps.
