problems (?) with integrated dishwasher door

Postby beacon182 » Sat Oct 04, 2008 7:13 pm

I'm slowly fitting a new kitchen and have bought a Bosch integrated dishwasher. The problems started trying to open it to get to the instructions inside - the opening aperture/mechanism was covered up with a plastic moulding which I had to remove to get the door open and access the instructions :oops: Don't know if that was supposed to stay on or not... anyway, the whole thing reminded me of when I bought a Bullworker (can you still get those?) as a skinny 15-year-old but couldn't get the packaging off :wink:
On finally consulting the instructions, I note that they (a series of mystifying illustrations which also somehow serves as a template!) include nothing specific about the handle: obviously, I want to fit my own matching handle to the door... Which got me thinking: how will my handle operate the door mechanism? Well, I know it won't as it will just be attached to the door, so does that mean the dishwasher will unlock automatically when not in operation? If so, how was I supposed to open it to get the instructions, as it was well and truly locked? And should I refit the plastic cover thingy over the mechansim aperture?

As you've probably gathered, it's got me rather foxed at the mo

Any voice of experience would be greatly appreciated...
