Tried to buy an old Siemens micro switch (3SE4101) to my dish washer. It seems, not very surprisingly, like it went out of production. Is there a replacement?

Hi, I'm Daniel and I'll be helping you today I've been repairing white goods for 20+ yrs. and currently work for a well-know manufacturer.


Can you post the model number ok the dishwasher please.



Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Bosch SMI 70695K/01 I believe. The brouchure I have states just SMI 70 and then someone put the rest in hand writing.



Can you double check that model number please as its not coming up.

Ok ive got it now.


Is it the door switch you are looking for?



Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes, tried with my local Bosch/Siemens workshop but they just told me it's out of production. No direct replacement (which I find strange).


Just relised you are in Sweden im afraid I don't have access to any spares sites there.


But the part is still available for the door lock. The part number is XXXXX


Have a search for it local but if not im sure you can find a supplier to send out to you.


But that's the part number you need so im sure you will be able to find it locally.


If you cannot find it locally click here. Its a uk site which has the door switch and they will ship it out to Sweden. I think its about £8 for delivery.


Click here for the part


If you need anymore info just get back to me.
