Two years ago we had the kitchen re-fitted, with the wife insisting on
an integrated dishwasher. Now this thing is moving when you open the
door. You can see the whole body of the machine move up and down as if
the motion of the door is levering it somehow. Why would this happen?
On our Bosch integrated DW, there are are two very slim brackets that
stick out just above the door. These need to be screwed into something
above them, once the dishwasher is in place. Ours are screwed into the
With our DW, these brackets are essential to stop it rocking in the way
you have described. I'm guessing your brackets, or whichever equivalent
system your DW has, have come unattached.
With ours, it's nothing to do with levelling the feet. The DW itself is
quite light, and the door has a lot of leverage. By the time you've
attached a heavy wooden door front to it, the bit that flaps down is
comparable in weight to the rest of the machine.
