CustomerWayne from Waterford WI

Upgraded kitchen to stainless steel appliances

Shut off the power. Opened dishwasher door fully and removed 10 screws around outside edge. Lifted the inside panel up carefully and set to side with wires attached to soap dispenser. Removed two screws that held handle in place and removed wires. On the bottom o fthe door there are 4 screws 2 on each side that have to be removed from the hinges. You can now remove front panel. Take four screws out of control pad that hold the pad to the front panel. Simply reverse steps to reassemble. Takes about 30 minutes.

CustomerPatricia from Saint Louis MO

Replaced old black with new ss door panel

Difficulty was primarily because there were no instructions for the procedure so trial and error. I suggest: 1) Turn off power circut to the dishwasher. Then remove the star headed screws on the panel with door open and this separates the interior plastic door liner from the exterior door panel 2) remove the 4 screws inside the door that are the final fasteners for the exterior panel and the metal brace 3) bottom of the old door panel is curled and needs to be bent back slightly at the bottom 2 corners with a screw driver or pliers so the old panel can be removed by sliding the panel upward past corner brace while being careful with the electrical connections 4) once the old panel is removed the new one can be slid down the door arms and the interior screws attached 5) finally install the star head screws holding the interior panel and the new exterior panel. Restore electrical power and enjoy the new look of the ss panel.

CustomerDanny from Gardner KS

Dishwasher stainless steel face panel

Wanted to change our dishwasher to a stainless steel appearance. When the panel was delivered in 1 day I might add it was flawless. I removed the old panel and the new panel attached to the dishwasher perfectly with the screw holes exactly lining up. The most inexpensive way to turn a kitchen into a stainless steel appliance look.

CustomerMilton from manistee MI

Needed to change out front panel from black to ssteel

Open door fully. Remove all screws that hold inside panel to Front panel. Carefully remove Inside panel being VERY CAREFULL not to pull wiring out of door switch [top of door] and operator switch panel [also top of door]. Remove door switch, next remove 3 screws holding switch panel in place. Remove the top plastic section where switch panel mounts and set aside. Carefully remove green ground wire from bottem hinge for door. [right side] Next CAREFULLY remove front panel from hinges using EXTREME CARE not to let hinges "free fall" to the open position. Remove old panel. Install new panel in the reverse order as the old one was removed. DO NOT PANIC if you happen to pull the "ribbon cable' out of panel switch. It will plug back in very quickly and only one way. Just make sure it is "seated" in plug. The "key word" for this panel replacement is CAREFULLY.

Redeco kitchen black to stainless

1. Removed door inside plastic panel, 2. Removed additional screws holding panel to hinge brackets and control panel, 3. Figured out that this would all have been easier if I'd unhooked door hinge springs first (access from sides), 4. Removed isulation from old panel and reglued to new panel, 5 Reassembled, hooking up door springs last. Voila!

CustomerRon from Lexington OK

Install stainlees steel front on dishwasher.

Remove screws holding the existing white panel. Once that panel was loose, there are several screws internally that have to be taken out in order to fully remove the panel. The new panel is then installed by putting it in place and reinserting the screws. It is an easy"fix" to change the DW to match other stainless steel appliances. You do need to be careful to make sure the door springs stay attached.

How to upgrade from black panel to stainless

First, turn the power off to the dishwasher. Then removed several screws that hold the panel in place. These are mostly on the side of the panel door. I then pulled the old panel and put the new one in.
