Customer Question
Hi. The door...

Hi. The door on my Bosch dishwasher won’t stay closed. If I hold it, the dishwasher starts. If I let go, the door opens. This issue arose very suddenly. Michael

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

6 years approximately.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is very simple. Otherwise, no.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of.
