Appliance front door panels, how to install


Hope I chose the correct forum for this question.


We have new kitchen cabinets we will be installing in a couple months.
I bought a matching wood door for the front of my dishwasher.
How do I install this over front of my dishwasher?
I'm thinking some type of double stick tape, but not sure which.
I would think I would need to be able to take it off should I ever have to buy a new dishwasher that has the same size front so I could use it again.

Seems simple enough that it must be a tape install, but I don't want to take that for granted

If it's made or changeable panels most often you remove one of the pieces of wrap around trim and it slides right out.

I'm not really sure it is inter changeable panels
There are screws on the inside that seems to hold the front panel on.
I was just thinking that if I took that piece off, how would the wood piece replace that correctly.
It was why I thought maybe the wood doors were just stuck on the front with double stick tape.
Can you tell I've never seen anyone do this before :D

We have no picture of what you have.
No make or model so it's hard to say.

It's a Kenmore. I don't have the model #, paperwork could be in the garage at the moment.
We haven't taken the old cabinets out yet, so haven't looked behind the dishwasher either.
I think we bought it early 2008. I remember when our old one broke thinking "oh great, laid off and our dishwasher and our dryer broke" lol

Here is a picture I just took

You need a Panel Ready DW. It comes without a front at all, and the springs are calibrated to work with the weight of the wood panel. And the overall depth is made to work with a panel. You can't just apply a wood panel to a regular DW. It will be too deep to line up, and the extra weight will wear out the springs.

well now I don't have to worry about the door lol.
We just bought a GE Profile panel ready dishwasher that looks similar to the Bosch you posted
It is soooo quiet, you can't hear it running unless you put your ear to it

What happened?


I was about to offer my advice on the dishwasher panel situation— but then I noticed how long ago it was resolved! And then I saw your most recent comment, which led me to actually join, so I could ask you, "What happened later that night?"

here is what happened to us 9/23/2014 and after running out of money by January 2015, found pro bono help.

one of many websites that either interviewed me, or wrote an article on their own.

In April, I was asked to meet one of our attorneys on Capitol hill and speak in front of Congressional staff in support of patent reform.

We won in May, but since our 1st judge died October 2015 and our new judge came December 2015, we are still awaiting the answer on fees. NJ courts are behind because of lack of enough judges.
