I am looking at a Bosch SGV57T03GB integrated dishwasher to replace my
old washer that is not cleaning anymore. Does anyone know if there are
standard door sizes on dishwashers? As we cannot find one in the local
Are you talking about the add-on wooden/MDF door which matches the rest
of your kitchen? If so, then yes; and I'm not sure what 'local shops'
you're looking at, but you need to approach the supplier of the original
kitchen for a matching door.
'Full size' dishwashers are a nominal 600mm width. You then get a full
height, 600mm wide door from your kitchen unit supplier and it fastens
to the front of the diswasher using 'hidden' brackets so visitors can
never find it or the bread knife inside it!
Not sure where you are, but most John Lewis brances have examples in
their display kitchens, as do Magnets, In Toto, etc and the Alno
showroom in Hounslow.

Thanks for the help. What I am trying to find out is if the oak door
on the front of our current dishwasher will go onto a new one. The
width I am sure is standard but the height? The current oak door is
71cm high and fixes onto a 61cm actual dishwasher door is this a
standard size or do I have to try and find a new matching facia door?

Some dishwashers require full door panels. This is where the controls
are hidden on the top edge and looks completely like a door when
Some have the control panel on the front and require a 3/4 ish door
below in place of the usual white panel on a standard dishwasher.
Some also have adjustable facias, so that the gab between the top of
the false front and bottom of the control panel can be hidden\filled.
I would measure your door and have a look at dishwashers to see what
it would fit. You'd probably be better off going to an independent
distributor who might actually know how these things are fitted rather
than the 'mainline' electrical stores who could struggle with
identifying a dishwasher.

Yes, they are standard, nominally 72cm high and 60cm wide. Every integrated
dishwasher I've seen has the kitchen door go considerably below the metal
front. The top edge goes flush with the worktop minus a few mm. The bottom
should match the other doors/drawers in the kitchen. Therefore, the height
of the door is set by that to match the kitchen.
