Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Bosch dishwasher. Dishes are clean, but glasses are smokey.


Answers :

HI. Most of the time when this occurs, it will be the result of not using the appropriate amount of rinse aide. With that said; I would also recommend to use some sort of dishwasher cleaning agent to get rid of what we call in the industry, Mineral build up(iron, calcium,lime). This problem mostly occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher, although, iron can cause this as well. it all depend son how hard your water is at this time. If you are certain that you are unsing a good rinsae aide, i would recememendto use a very powerfukl dishwasher cleaner that can dissolver that calcium/iron build up insied your unit. Omce that build up has been dessolved, you will notice a big difference in the drying process. The glasses will not look smoky and the dishes will shine like new.

Click here to order a good agent that will remove that crud and provide a layer of protection for at least three months. This build up will be mostly in the hoses and walls of the unit. Inside the sprayer arms, as well.

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water


Hello. Let's begin by tossing two cups of vinegar into the empty dishwasher and running it on it's hottest and longest cycle. Always run the hot water in the sink faucet until it is as hot as it gets before starting up the machine. Let that cycle ... Bosch SHE43C02UC Dishwasher

Hello! My 3 yr old Bosch dishwasher (I think it is a SHE 43) is doing two things: 1) leaving a serious white film on dishes and glasses 2) leaving grit inside glasses on the top rack (always on glasses placed on the far back right of the top rack) I've tried cleaning the machine with hot washes with no dishes, vinegar only, but no luck. Any thoughts? Many thanks for your help!


Hello. Since you have already cleansed the interior of your dishwasher, we must conclude that the problem is with the water itself. If you do not have a filter on your water, you may want to consider installing a dirt/rust filter, at least on the h ... Dishwashers

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?

Bosch dishwasher Model SHU43C02UC/17 consistently leaves film on glassware, leaves residue in the bottom of glasses in the back position of the top rack, and sometimes leaves gritty residue on dishes throughout the dishwasher. The stainless steel interior is also stained. I regularly clean the filter, use Jet Dry (the product that was included with the machine when I purchased it), and rinse the dishes before filling. The dishwasher has never cleaned dishes like the 17-year-old Kitchen

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through


I have the same problem with mine!! It's 6 years old, and I'm running loads of dishes through twice. Even that doesn't help! And I rinse the dishes too, so I have no idea where all these "crumbs" are coming from. Will check back for updates. Hope to ... Bosch 24 in. SHU6802UC / SHU6806UC Built-in Dishwasher
