I am having a very difficult time assembling the base panel extension AP3962057 to my Bosch dishwasher. The screws AP3967859 simply wont attach to the holes. Are there any recommendations on how to assemble this? It should be simple but have been trying for hours with no success.
Answer Hello Chris,
First make sure the screws will protrude all the way through the kickpanel. Then make sure the screws will thread into the holes. If yes in both cases, and you screwdriver fits the head properly, it is just a matter of lining the holes up properly. One trick you can use is to put a long wire tie into the screw hole on one side and thread it into the threaded hole in the unit to line up the hole on the other side with. This will line the opposite side up so that screw can be started. Now removing the wire tie by just pulling it straight out will have that side lined up by the screw started on the opposite end.
REPLACING THE BOTTOM PANEL, HAVE THE PANEL BUT NO THE SCREWS, NEED TO KNOW WHAT SIZE/LENGTH SCREW TO GET
The screws are part number and are Phillips head and size is M4x16 and are approximately 3/4" long. Part number for the screw is 00188670
