Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

Hi, we are trying to install our new Bosch dishwasher model: SMU68M05AU. I am surprised to see packing foam and flimsy edging across the top edge that meets up to the stainless steel door edge when its closed. I can not find detailed installation instructions. Is there not a strip that goes across the top to meet the door as the top looks very ugly? The dishwasher door protrudes from the under bench cupboard space so the top part is in view and exposed.

I purchased a whirlpool dishwasher GU2475xtvy2 with interior controls on top of the door. Might seem like a silly question, however, do I have to install with the door & controls controls out from under the countertop? or do I install with controls hidden, and make selections before closing door? Doesn't address this in the installation manual. Thanks

LG Dishwasher I just purchase a new LG Dishwasher. The installer told me that the dishwasher can not be flush to the Kitchen cabinets because of the metal cases around the dishwasher and also it can not be aligned with the top and bottom of the cabinets because the door is too thick to give it clearance to open. I have had two other dishwashers in this spot and never had any issue. Thoughts? Thanks, Jen

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?

Our Amana ADB1500AWW dishwasher leaks at far left and far right edges ( at bottom points) of the inside door panel due to a design flaw. ie - In the fully open position ( door in horizontal position) the far left and far right edges (at bottom) of inside plastic door panel are stressed beyond what the plastic can withstand consequently the edges of the panel crack as far as 3 inches from edge to inside.

Dishwasher Normally, after the dishwasher cleans the load, it displays green light next to clean. Once the door is opened, the light goes off an dishwasher is ready for next load. But from few days, after opening the dishwasher door, the clean light does not go off, it remains lit. Dishwasher doe snot reset for next cycle. So, I have to go in the basement and trip the main power to dishwasher. That resets the dishwasher. This needs to be done before each cycle. Not sure how to resolve the issue.


Make sure that you do not open the door during the wash cycle. Wait until all the cycles \015\012are complete before opening the door. Especially don't open the door \015\012during the drying cycle. ... Dishwashers

I replaced both top and bottom plastic bearings and also tightend all the screws at the bottom. Leak Gone, I thought. It now has small leaks down both sides. I have since been told by the owner that he took the door apart himself. I pulled out the dishwasher from the cabinet and ran it. I could see the leaks at the top on both sides of the door latch.
