I am fitting a kitchen for a friend. She has a AEG Favorit 35085 VI Integrated Dishwasher and a new door (matching the other units) to fit to the front of the dishwasher. There is a fixing kit which makes no sense.
Just fitted on of these & found the door very easy to fit.
The instruction sheet is actually a template as well. Attach it to the back of the door & where indicated drill 2mmø holes to a depth of 14mm. Firstly then screw in the 2no. screws that go into the door slots, the actual screws are easy to spot as the screw thread finishes approx 5mm from the head.
Once that is done you need to offer the door to the front of the dishwasher & slot it into place. Once done you have to fix the door in place with the 6no. longer screws. To do this you must remove 4no of the screws which are holding the front of the dishwasher together, the other 2 screws go through empty positions at the bottom of the dishwasher door.
To help with this process I would recommend you use a soft jawed clamp to hold the door in place whilst you screw it in place.
There are also 2no. angle brackets that fit into 2 slots on the top of the dishwasher which are then used to hold the dishwasher in place under the work top.
Hope this helps.
p.s. one last thing, the thin strip of steel that comes with the kit fits onto the underside of the worktop in the position shown, I believe this is a steam deflector to protect the underside of the worktop

The space underneath the dishwasher, or cabinets, is referred to as the kick space. It is where your toes fit under the edge of a counter and they are typical of cabinets and dishwashers alike. You should not expect a wood trim piece to fit underneath the dishwasher and not all dishwashers will accommodate one. It is fair to say that all dishwashers will come complete with a trim piece to cover this area, since some have venting and others do not; some have a door that extends down further and some do not. Generally speaking the variation people concern themselves with is in dishwasher's width and not in the door configuration. So having said and in consideration of your (assumed) desire to retain the wood trim, I suggest you retool the wood trim piece to work/fit with the dishwasher you decide you want. This is what I did rather than use the provided black metal panel. I have attached photos.
This is typical of the anti-flood circuit that opperates once it detects water on the base of the machiene and is a polystireen float that activates a micro switch. This puts the machiene in pump out mode only. You need to determine if the water at the base of machiene is caused by a small leak or is it a customer spillage. Clearing the water (tip to side) or dry with paper towel and inspect for leaks. Rectify the leak and this should solve the problem.
You would need to tell me which fixings are supplied with the DW. There are a variety of different ways to fix the door to the appliances, some have 2 white spacers which you would need to fit to the lower part of the door and others screw directly to the appliance.
open the front door. On each side of the inside of the door are various long screws, unscrew these and the old door will fall off. discard the old door and follow the same steps in reverse to put the new door on. It took me 10 mins to do. Hope this helps
