Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

My dishwasher came with styrofoam placed between the top and the inside , a foam sheet and cardboard screwed to the back. Is this the packaging and does it need to be removed before installation? The picture in the instruction manual does not advise you to unscrew the back packaging. Even though I attempted to remove the foam sheet it is stuck under the sides at the back of the dishwasher.

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, as the repairguru there may be of more help.

SOURCE: Securing Bosch SHU 4300 under "hard" countertops

If this is a new Bosch Dishwasher then there should be two metal tabs that protrude from the top of the tub above the door. These tabs are for top mounting the dishwasher to a wood countertop, however these tabs also can be relocated to side mount the dishwasher to the cabinetry. The way to do this is to pull the dishwasher out of the hole it is in, in the counter (be careful not to pull too hard or to move the machine out too far due to the length of the water and electric lines). just pull it out easy till you can see the tabs, Now using a pair of pliers, bend the tabs on the backside of the mounts straight so you can remove them from the framing of the dishwasher. Next look at the tabs there should be a perforation where you can use 2 pairs of pliers to snap the tabs off at the perforation, after snapping off these tabs, look at the sides of the dishwasher and you will see a slot where you can reattach the tabs into, and bend the tabs in the back to hold them in place. If you look at the rubber gasket material on both sides of the machine - you can see where the round holes are located for side mounting. Attach the tabs and gently push the machine back into the cabinetry. Now using a small drill bit, drill a pilot hole into both sides of the cabinets to mount the dishwasher. You want to drill these pilot holes so as not to split the counter facing when you drill in the screws. Using the Bosch screws that came with the dishwasher (or small flat phillips screws) slowly screw in the screws into the sides of the cabinetry. When you attempt to remove the machine from the cabinetry you may find that it is adjusted tight to the countertop. If this is the case you will need to remove the 2 screws that hold the kickplate in at the bottom of the dishwasher in the front and remove the kickplate. Then you will need to bring up the front legs on both the left and the right and also the rear leg which is adjusted up and down by using a flat blade screwdriver. Look at the front of the dishwasher, behind the kickplate and there will be a adjusting screw with arrows which point left to right. the direction you turn this screw will determine which way the dishwasher will adjust,- right adjusts the machine higher and left lower. Good luck!!!!!! Hope this helps.

How to remove packaging

Based on personal experience, I can say that you need to remove all the cardboard and plastic wrap covering the front, back and various parts inside the refrigerator. Care must be taken to ensure that insulation, which helps the operation of the unit, intended to be part of the design is not removed. If you have a question about some specific insulation (generally styrofoam) then it might be best to call the help line for the manufacturer - they can check with technical experts on that model to determine whether it is needed or not. The primary reason for removing cardboard and wrap is to be sure that all of the necessary ventilation for the unit to operate without overheating is clear.

Keeping your eggs at their freshest

Although it is very thoughtful of refrigerator manufacturers to provide us with special containers for our eggs, did you know that eggs stay fresher in their original containers (not the hen)? Research has shown that both cardboard and styrofoam egg cartons provide identical results regarding keeping eggs at a safe temperature. To be even safer, place the styrofoam or cardboard carton in the bottom of the refrigerator, NOT THE DOOR, The door is one of the warmest places in the refrigerator and dairy products (eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, sour cream, etc.) should NEVER be stored there!

I have a Dell A960. There is a piece of styrofoam jammed at the base of the paper intake feed and I can't get to it. Is there something I can remove to access it? Opening the printer top doesn't...

I don't know if that printer has a rear access panel, so here's a little trick....uncurl a thin paperclip, putting a loop at one end for your finger, and a barb bend at the other end (think of the sharp part of a fish hook) at the other end, Use the hook to grab and remove the Styrofoam.
Another solution, although more tricky and potentially dangerous, is to put some crazy glue on the end of a piece of cardboard, and try to glue the end of the cardboard to the Styrofoam and gently remove the cardboard, hopefully with the styro in tow!

Water draining in bottom of refrigerator

Unplug the refrig . Inside the refrig section , remove the 4 screws ( 2 on each side ) and
lower the panel . Disconnect the large plug and remove the panel by pulling froward to
clear the defrost drain hole .Find a food safe caulking or odorless silicon and caulk at the
upper portion where the styrofoam meets the plastic AND on the top center of the styrofoam (
all the way around the large rectangle hole ) so that the styrofoam will seal to the top of
the refrig . When the refrig goes into defrost , the water is seeping between the refrig top
and the styrofoam , causing it to run into the refrig section . When reassembling , be sure
to plug the large plug back into the refrig .

I have a Samsung Twin cooling french door fridge with the freezer drawer at the bottom. I notice that in the vents in the back cover where the cooling fans are you can see styrofoam. I am afraid that it...

This is normal, the vents are lined with styrofoam to help minimize loss of cooling when the air is circulated from the freezer section into the fridge section.

Most of the vent and cold air channels are made entirely from styrofoam these days in most fridges.

Most packing foam is in plain sight and usually held in place with tape, so it is highly unlikely that any packing foam would be behind anything mounted permanently in a fridge.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Lsc26905tt = chunks of styrofoam coming from ice maker

Over the past few years the appliance companies have found that it is less costly and more efficient to replace the traditional spray in foam insulation to Styrofoam panels. They do sometimes shift. When they shift they can come in contact with the fan. The blade shaves them and then blows the foam particles into the unit. If you are comfortable with doing repairs then you can fix this. You will need to un-plug the refrigerator and remove everything in the freezer. You will see a series of screws in the back inside panel. Take these screws out and remove the panel. You will expose the coil and fan assembly. Inspect it and make any adjustments to the foam at this time. assemble in reverse. Hope this helps. Good luck. RE-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.
