at first I thought the problem (small leak during wash) was due to the small
pieces around opening gasket but am now thinking it's the door itself not sealing
tightly enough with the automatic locking mechanism and water gets inside the
is there a DIY guide to taking apart the door and perhaps getting some spare
the Bosch Nexxt 500 series or perhaps someone can recommend an online forum that
I had a similar situation and the extended warranty took care of it.
A couple of small chunks out of the door gasket was the issue with
leaking from under the door onto the face of the machine. The
repairman was looking into another issue (the things will just stop
working if there's too much soap used in the wash - something about
the foam freaking the machine out), and while he was here he replaced
the gasket at no charge.
I asked him about the water getting inside the viewport window,
between the two panes, and he said that was common, he wouldn't do
anything about it, and the door could be taken apart, cleaned with
bleach and put back together. He seemed to be saying it was a lot of
work for something that would just happen again. Sigh.

That is false and linking to their site implies that you checked Bosch's

Actually linking to CR's Dishwasher rating report:
CR rated Bosch's brand reliability 5th out of 14 companies with a problem
(repairs and serious problems) percentage of 10%; this range went from 8%

percentage points from the most reliable and 13 percentage points up from
the worst reliable.
In individual dishwasher ratings (overall performance) Bosch has the top 4
Are we talking about a clothes washer or dishwasher ?? The pics look like a
clothes washer but some comments are about dishwashers..We just replaced our
washer and dryer and am glad we went with the top loader with mechanical
controlls and resisted the temptation of the new front loaders with the
fancy electronics that keep breaking , leaky gaskets and smelly clothes from
to little water..The horror stories just keep coming....JMHO...
