Repair & Advice
Control module works like a charm! Applies to Bosch SHU5314UC See http://www.bosch-home.com/us/store/spareparts/DISHWASHERBOUFU15ALMOND/SHU5314UC/06 for parts list & diagrams. Getting the dishwasher outer door panel off was fairly easy: 1) Open the dishwasher door all the way. NOTE for the next steps: There are two plastic blocks near the bottom of the door, sandwiched between the door panel (which you are about to remove) and the door interior. The blocks are not secured in place and if you don't have someone to hold the bottom of the door panel in place when you remove the last two screws, the blocks will fall out when the panel tips down. Have a helper handy! 2) Remove the torx screws from the door frame, starting at the top, just below the controller frame. Be sure to hold the panel in-place at the bottom of the door when removing the bottom two screws. 3) With all screws removed, close the dishwasher and the door panel should slide down. 4) Find the blocks I mentioned above. They are black and about 1.5" x 1.5", near the bottom end of the door, with no insulation behind them. Note how the blocks are positioned because they will likely fall out. With the door still shut, remove the controller panel frame. Getting the controller panel frame off was a bit more challenging due to the retainer clips. They required the bent-nosed pliers (needle-nosed might work too). Explaining how to remove the retainer clips without pictures is way too difficult. Just be aware that the controller panel frame is locked into place with two metal clips that look like the mini binder-clips, but without handles. You can see them if you look up under the controller panel frame at the left and right edges. Use the pliers to remove them. Then you should be able to pull the bottom of the controller panel frame out and lift up to remove. Now the easy part...replace the controller.
