How do I Install the Bosch Dishwasher Decorative Panel?

Updated November 21, 2016

The panel on the bottom of your Bosch dishwasher is decorative and functional; it hides mechanical workings and deflects debris from going under the dishwasher. The panel complements the dishwasher's colour and is located directly under the dishwasher door. Once the dishwasher is installed, you can attach the decorative panel in a matter of minutes.

Unplug the dishwasher from the electrical socket.

Locate the Bosch decorative panel on the back of the dishwasher. The decorative panel, also known as a "toe panel" or "kick panel," is packaged on the back of the dishwasher. It must be removed before installing the dishwasher.

Unscrew the decorative panel from the back of the dishwasher and set it aside.

Install the Bosch dishwasher according to the installation guide and check for leaks. It is much easier to spot leaks without the panel in place.

Position the panel on the bottom of the dishwasher so it is flush with the floor. The panel has adjustable slots so you can move it up or down, according to the height of your floor.

Attach the decorative panel with two screws, one on each side.

Plug the dishwasher into the electrical socket.


Do not use the dishwasher until it is completely installed.
