To mount a custom panel on a Cove Dishwasher:

  1. Remove the template from the dishwasher door by removing the screws, then discard the screws.
  2. Place the custom panel face-down on a protected work surface.
  3. Position the template flush with the top and sides of the panel, then mark and drill holes.
  4. Remove the custom panel mounting brackets from the dishwasher by pushing in and up on each bracket.
  5. Use the screws provided to secure brackets to the panel.
  6. Align the mounting pins on the door panel with the dishwasher door slots, then push in and shift the panel down to secure.
  7. Verify the panel is secure against the dishwasher door. Then insert a screw into each hinge to secure the bottom of the panel.


Panel Specifications

Make sure all sides of the custom panel are finished. They may be visible when the door is open.

  • The thickness of the custom panel can vary. A minimum 1/2" (13) thick panel is required, but the thickness can be increased provided the panel does not exceed 20 lb (9 kg).
  • A panel less than 16 lb (7 kg) is optimal.
  • The custom door panel template provided accommodates 23-3/8" (594) and 23-3/4" (603) wide panels. Adjust the template accordingly for all other panel widths. A panel can be wider than specified by the template, as long as it does not exceed the 20 lb weight limit.
  • Cove does not recommend making the panel taller than the 30-3/8" specified in the Design Guide.
  • The minimum panel height is 28" (711).

For further panel information, refer to the Cove Design Guide.

Replacement Parts

  • A new template can be ordered using part number 828042.
  • Panel mounting brackets can be ordered using part number 829020 if needed. Part number is for one bracket.
  • If screws are missing, order a new installation hardware kit. Refer to Cove Installation Hardware for part numbers.


Cove accessory handles are available. Refer to Cove Tubular and Pro Handle Installation for more information.

For other handles, any style handle may be used, but keep some guidelines in mind:

  • Cove recommends a handle with two points of attachment. Pulling on a knob style handle regularly over time can result in the handle coming loose.
  • There is no minimum handle length. Knobs can be used, but they may not withstand the weight of pulling the doors open daily.
  • Genuine Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove parts are available by calling the Factory Certified Parts Distributor in your area.

Refer to the product Installation Guide for further installation information.
