The Miele dishwasher, just like most dishwashers, has a front panel that mounts to the front door. The door panel protects the unit from damage and also provides a layer of insulation to help prevent heat escape. The front panel on the Miele dishwasher comes off in a relatively easy manner and will only take a few minutes to remove.
Open the door on the Miele dishwasher and position it at a 45-degree angle downward from the dishwasher.
Locate the T20-Torx screws on either side edge of the cover and remove them with a T20-Torx screwdriver.
Slide the panel downward away from the filler strips or the bottom of the control panel and then pull the cover off the front of the dishwasher.
