Bosch Dishwasher SHE6AF06UC/05 leaks and won't complete cycle

11 November 2012 - 10:21 PM

Our Bosch dishwasher (Model SHE6AF06UC/05) recently suffered the disgrace of having our 6yo son fall onto the door while open. While he quickly recovered, I am afraid our poor dishwasher has not.

The d/w will turn on, but will not start a cycle (timer simply flashes) unless pressure is applied to the door or an object is wedged under or around the door to apply pressure. Even yet, it will not run through a complete cycle without constantly bumping and adjusting the pressure on the door. At various random points in the cycle, it goes back to flashing and needs to be re-adjusted. We've also noticed that the timer doesn't seem to always be moving forward - we've once or twice caught it flashing with a higher time remaining than before. Oh, and we've now seen some leaking/bubbling out of both the top and bottom corners - a few ounces during what we can get out of a cycle.

Between my father-in-law and I, we've had the dishwasher out a couple of times - inspected springs, done some careful hammering on the hinges to even them on both sides (so they stop at the same point), carefully flexed the inner door panel door slightly upward to try to achieve a better seal on the top, cleaned the mineral deposits off the inner door and the inner rubber gasket. So far - it's no go.

Any thoughts or advice? Just picked this d/w up a couple years ago - and I'd really hate to kiss it goodbye so quickly.
