Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The service manual for this unit is available below.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
thanks for finding this manual. It doesnt however apply to my M 6262 model. It is type VTFMG which has different screws holding the door frame. It mentions 6 screws however my model also has 6 hinge screws coming thru the frame which need to be removed to get the door frame off. Those hinge screws have a very strange screwhead. Do you know the name of the screwhead? It may be Meile proprietary in which case I'm stufxx.

They are a Torx head screw.

Thanks for info. There are the 6 Torx screws but the remaining 6, securing the hinge, are not. They are similar but only have 3 points at the top and a rounded bottom. Any suggestions?
