How do I remove the front panel

How do I remove the front panel



To get the front panel off you need to remove the plastic trim at the bottom and from there you will see 2 or 3 screws holding the bottom panel on.

Then remove the door seal from the front.

Then pull the soap drawer out and then look were the drawer goes in the bottom right corner you will see another screw. Remove this screw fully out.


Now you can push down on the front panel and it will then lift off and away. But you need to make sure the top screw were the drawer goes is fully out otherwise It will stop you from pushing the front panel down.

Thanks Daniel I will try what you suggest and get back to you if I am still unsuccessful. I think I have already removed all the retaining screws, the drawer, the fascia, the kick plate and the seal ring but the front panel just doesn't want to budge! Thank you, Christine

No worries. You need to remove the screws at the bottom of the front panel as well once you have removed the plastic trim at the bottom.

Thanks for your advice Daniel - all done, but it would have been really useful to know that on our model there were four screws holding on the bottom part of the machine front - I had already undone two of them but did not realise there were two more. Not at all an easy job to change the gasket (door seal) - next time I think I will call out a Bosch engineer!! However, your rapid response to my problem was greatly appreciated. Thank you. Christine.
