Dishwasher Detergent Dispenser Assembly

If you are finding that the detergent is not being dispensed into your dishwasher, as usual, it could be due to a faulty dispenser. Help ensure that your dishes and cutlery continue to come out as clean as possible, by having a fully working dispenser. This replacement from eSpares could be just what you need to get back to a fully working dishwasher again - and back to sparkling dishes!


  • Includes: Optical/reed switch rinse aid sensors 

Detergent Dispenser fitting tip:

  1. Unplug from mains
  2. Remove stainless steel cover with Torx screw driver, leave the two larger screws each side that hold the hinges in place.
  3. There is a cable tidy which is attached to the inside of the dispenser - remove carefully
  4. Unplug the connectors to the old dispenser then carefully cut the top plastic lugs off the old dispenser and it will come away easily. Beware the stainless steel edges are sharp.
  5. Replacement is a reversal of the removal. Press the new dispenser in firmly as it must 'click' into place to be secured by the stainless steel lugs.

    Not as easy as the video shows

    I deliberately ordered the official Bosch unit rather than the alternative then tried to follow the video and the old one wouldn't budge. A close inspection showed that my dishwasher had fixings at both ends as well as the ones in the video. With these released as well, the old unit came out. Then fitting the new one proved troublesome. Despite pressing hard enough to buckle the door a bit, I could not get it to click in all round. I straightened the door as best I could then replaced the new rubber with the one from the old unit as some one else had suggested. It almost clicked in but not quite. I had to make a wooden support for the door so that I didn't buckle it again when I leaned really hard on the new unit and it did finally click into place. Over two hours it took for something the video showed as being really simple. I did eventually succeed but it was hard work!

    Detergent Dispenser for Bosch

    Although the website did not match this part to my dishwasher, a quick email to the service dept confirmed it was a match. Item arrived quickly and was fiddly but easy enough to fit. The rubber seal was very tight so took a fair bit of effort to seat the dispenser properly. Anyway all working as expected so great considering the age of the dishwasher. A great website that has helped me out on a number of occasions now with spares for older appliances.

As per the other question on this page and your advise I've removed the upper tray and popped it on a short wash. I listened for the solenoid but didn't hear anything within the first few minutes. The wash continued and the drawer was still closed. What are the next steps, I see that the controller is discontinued?

    If the solenoid is not working then test it with a multimeter but it is likely to be the board if it is not supplying the valve.

    This is a replacement for part Stock Number: ES760356 as the original is discontinued and the replacement will work. If the machine does not 'buzz' to dispense the problem may be the control board.

    Check the connectors from the dispenser have continuity to the circuit board (Low resistance). If this is correct it would suggest a control board problem.

    We believe the part is likely to fit as there are around 9000 models listed and this is a Bosch part.

    Unlike conditioner in a washing machine rinse aid does not change the smell of the load. to avoid smells ensure to rinse all food particles of the plates if not washing immediately. Also try our machine cleaner (see our video: )
