    I have the same problem. The handle is very loose and I can't figure out a way to get in there to tighten. Really don't want to call a repairman. What's the secret?

    Sorry, I posted in the solution mode, but what I meant was that I have the same problem.

    Same problem....orangeferry, your solution was spot on! thx!! I found the best thing was to open the door to horizontal, prop it off the floor with anything avail underneath before removing the screws, remove the screws and carefully close the inner door. Then the handle was easy to tighten after which I re-opened the inner door to lie flat on the outer door and screwed them back together. The door screws will strip, so be careful with not over-tightening them. (I found out with one the hard way)

I just tightened the handle on my Bosch SHV6803 dishwasher. It turned out to be even easier than explained here. The two screws on the upper, inside corners of the door are much longer than all the others. If you remove those two screws, the outer shell of the door pivots away from the inside (it drops down if the door is lying horizontally) and the handle screws are exposed and easily tightened.

I have the problem, and unfortunately even if you fix it, it comes back.

Here's how to tighten:

With the door to the dishwasher open, unscrew (using apropriate sized allen wrench) the screws surrounding the outer perimeter of the door. As you do, be careful, as the outer shell of the door will begin to fall. Once you take off this outer shell, you can easily tighten the handle, then screw the shell back into place.

Very annoying design flaw.

On my shv46c with custom door, the top two torx screws were all I needed to remove.... once removed the entire door slides up (there are two tabs at the bottom which slide into a slot on the inside part of the door). Once the door was off, it was simple to tighten the screws (and I put some thread-locker on 'em for good measure). Putting the door back was a struggle, but manageable. Just slide the two tabs back into their slots, while at the same time making sure two nylon guides also go into the door (poor design IMO), and then screw those two torx screws back in.

    Actually when I took my front panel off, all of the screws heads facing up when the door was fully opened had to be removed, then the front panel comes off. Yes, the top two are longer, but they are not the only ones removed for my model.

Loose handle


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.

Hello,

You are correct on this style dishwasher the front panel will need to be removed in order to tighten the handle. Remove the screws around the edge of the door once off the panel will lift up and off.

There will be a bigger screw coming in from the back side, loosen and put a little lock tight on the threads and you will never have to take the dishwasher apart again, that trick works for me..

Have a good evening, I work at the link below to.

Remove front panel then you can access the handle screws. Open the door and remove the 'torx' screws surrounding the perimeter of the door.
