When lowering the door of the Bosch shx46l15uc dishwasher, something snapped. The door is heavier so I am guessing a spring or something broke. Is this an easy fix?

Hi ED, It sounds like a real problem here. If the springs are still in one piece, my best guess is to to remove the springs from the door. Then attach the springs to the dishwasher body first, then reattach the spring to the door. Not an easy job, good luck. If you have further problems check with www.repairclinic.com, as the repairguru there may be of more help.

SOURCE: need stronger Door Springs, to able wood door panel

The best suggestion I could give you is contact either Sears or Bosch and ask for recommendations. You will require the proper springs designed for dishwashers.

How do I adjust the door tension on a Bosch SHU 6802 undercounter dishwasher to keep it from falling open


you cant change the tension more likely one of the ropes attached to door spring has snapped so you are only getting counterbalance from one spring not two.

MY BOSCH DISHWASHER DOES NOT TURN ON. IT HAS POWER GOING TO IT. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A WIRING DIAGRAM.?


If you are certain there is 120 volt power connected at the terminals (loose connections do happen), then check the door switch and control. If those parts are working (and it has power) then at least an indicator light would glow. The most likely problem is a loose connection at the power connections where the house wiring connects to the dishwasher. Many instances of this failure have been found. You can also try disconnecting the existing power and connecting to another power source (a heavy extension cord) to see if that makes a difference.

Bosch shx46l15uc water not heating


Hi,

Water not heating can be a few reasons on these. The water heater for one. Possibly the temp sensor or NTC. These also have a pressure switch on the back of the water heaters so the power to the element will only switch on when sufficient water is pumped through it. This could be an issue.

Another thing is to check the water level. Once the dishwasher has filled and pumps normally (about 5 min into a cycle), open the door (watch for splashes) and check the water level. Is should sit above the metal water filter grill by about 3-4 cm. If the water level is sitting just at the level of the filter grill or lower then the problem could be the inlet fill time. There is a pressure chamber on the left hand side with a microswitch activate by a diaphragm once the water level has been reached. It could be this switch is faulty or the diaphragm is stuck in the 'filled' position activating the switch. This would mean the actual fill time would reduce significantly with barely any water going into the unit.

Please be careful if checking any electrical components that the power is off and unplugged. Only if you are technically competent should you attempt live testing of any kind.

How do you mount a wood door on this dishwasher?? Archie


Bosch offers a kit for installing a wood panel in place of the normal outer door panel. Based on the limited amount of clearance between the bottom of the outer door panel and the toe panel, I would suggest using the kit offered from Bosch. You will also need the last 2 digits of the model # to get the correct kit. After the UC, there is a /, followed by a 2 digit number. This is also needed.

On a further note, you may also need stronger springs as a wood panel is much heavier than the normal outer panel. You do not want the door just falling open, it is a good way to bend the door hinges.

One or both of the door springs came off or broke. If you take off the bottom panel you should be able to look with a flashlight and see.You can buy the springs and replace them.

I opened teh door and thought i felt something hit


Murray, It sounds like one of the door springs has broken and that is why the door seems heavier and opens with much more force.

You'll want to at least make a temporary repair and order a new replacment spring to get your dishwasher working like it should and so it's safer too.

You can check to see which side of the dishwasher the spring broke, by locking the door shut (with the cycle set to "off"). Now remove the lower access panel, beneath the main dishwasher door. There are a couple of screws near the top corner edges of the panel, just under the main door and a couple more on the toe kick near the very bottom.

Once you've got the lower access panel off, you'll be able to see the two door springs, (there is one on each side). Of course, the broken one might have fallen off the spring notches, so look around and you should see it.

With the door still closed and locked, you can remove the broken spring and see if it's just the hook end that broke. If that's the case, you can reform the end hook using a couple pairs of pliers and reinstall the spring on the door and frame mounting points. You'll have to use pliers to stretch the spring slightly to get it on the other mounting point, once you've got one end on a mounting point. If the spring broke off more than 3 coils, you'll need to replace it with a new one.

You can find a replacement by using searspartsdirect.com and putting in your model number to locate a line drawing and parts listing for your particular model. You can also order a new one from them, or use the part number to get one locally, if you wish.

Once you've got the spring back on the door and cabinet mount points, you can unlock the door and gently lower the door to see if everything is working properly. Once you've opened and closed the door several times, you can reinstall the lower access panel and you're back in business.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Door Problem


There are set springs for the adjustment of the doors on the Bosch dishwashers. they are colour coded for different applications. They are accessed by laying the machine on its back and pulling the springs out of the base. first you will need to check that the nylon lines which attach the springs to the lower part of the door mechanisms are in place and this can also be done while the machine is on its back. or by first removing the side panels to access the door hinge mechanisms. If you have a custom cabinet panel on your machine it may be too heavy for the springs and new springs will have to be installed.
