One more reason to buy GE or Whirlpool.
Can someone tell me where to find a manual for Bosch DLX dishwasher. I looked at the Bosch site, but they only had manuals for the newer models. Mine is at least 5-6 years old. It came with the house we bought. The dishwasher will not start and it appears to be a problem with the control buttons on the front of the washer. If punch the buttons in and out several times, I can sometimes get it to work. There also appears to be a problem with the sensor (?) that shuts the machine down when the door is opened. I can get the buttons to work with the door open, but the go from red (on) to black (off) intermittently, when I try to close the door to start the dishwasher back up.
I have a Bosch DW of about that age, I'm not sure of the model and I can't locate a manuel. However, if it was mine, I'd call a repairman. There are somethings better left to professionals. BTW, we really like the Bosch.
