Step 1: Find your model number and details
To make sure you purchase the correct replacement hinge for your washing machine, you're going to need to find out the model number and details of your appliance. These can usually be found on the inside of your washing machine door or on the removable kickplate panel at the bottom of the appliance. If you can't find it here, check the side or the back of your washing machine. The model number usually consists of a combination of letters and numbers and could also include characters such as a dash (-) or a slash (/).
Step 2: Remove the door assembly
Using a Torx head screwdriver, locate and remove the two screws that keep the door hinge connected to the cabinet. Once they have been unscrewed, lift the door away from the appliance.
Step 3: Removing the door screws
Place the door on a flat surface for safety, then proceed to remove all of the screws from the inner side of the door. This includes one that is hidden behind the sticker.
Step 4: Replace the hinge
To remove the hinge, lift up the inner door slightly and lift the hinge out.
You will also want to remove the two plastic caps from the old hinge and place them onto the new replacement hinge.
Then lift up the inner door again and insert the new hinge into place.
Step 5: Refit the door screws
Next, you can refit the screws you removed earlier into the back of the door.
Step 6: Refit the door
Finally, using the two screws you removed earlier, refit the door by screwing the hinge back into place on the washing machine.
Make sure that, once you've fit the new door into place, the door opens and closes properly.
And there you have it - how to replace the door hinge on your Bosch washing machine. Your washing machine door should now be fully intact and your appliance can go back to running as good as new.
