Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The motor runs and makes a buzzing sound. The water cannot get into the machine because I feel the filter is plugged from sediment from our well. I want to clean the filter but do not know where it is. Can you help?


Answers :

Empty the racks out. If you examine the core of this thind and start taking it apart starting with the part that spins and cleans, you will see how easy it is. Uner all of that there is a filter. If the filter is not clogged, most likely you have a pump/motor issue.
Could be a solenoid that opens in the inlet valve to let water in. It is located at front bottom. You have to remove a few parts to get to it.

\012If it is this find the part # and Google - Bosch inlet part # to find a good price. I had this happen on ours and the new valve fixed.

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

I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started leaking from the air filetr compartment. It starts, but then smokes starts to fume and all the oil leaks. Did I break it or is it a easy fix. I cleaned the filter housing. Also the filter was soaked with oil. should i get a new filter and install it or what is the solution. need help.


You will need to get a new filter, and drain some of the oil out of the machine. If you over fill these this will happen. 90% of the time nothing is broken. ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

What am I doing wrong? Our dishes don't come out clean at all with this. I love how quiet it is, but that is about all I like right now. I cleaned the filter and it hasn't helped. I cleaned the spray arms, I tried everything. We use the regular setting (about 2 hrs wash time for a full load). If I don't rinse the baby bottles, milk is still in them after washing so I know it is not doing a decent job.

We have a Bosch SHU3307UC dishwasher. Two friends swear by theirs, saying they put everything in dirty and the load always comes out clean. That does not at all work for us. My wife has to just about wash every item before putting it in, and even then most loads are not fully clean. It runs full cycle. We use good detergent. The filter basket is cleaned out.

Hobart LX30 Thank you for your help earlier. I figured out a way to get the machine running on 220. Now my problem is finding the intake for the sanitizer and detergent. I have looked all over the machine and I cant find tubes anywhere. The guy I bought it off of tells me that when the water temp is over 170 you don't need any cleaning products. I just want a second opinion. I feel that our glassware is not as clean as we would like. Any thoughts?


I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the direction your seller is leading you. I assume this machine is installed in some type of place where you are serving food to the public. If this is the case, then the local health inspector will expect to see a w ... Hobart 24 in. LXIH-3 Built-in Dishwasher
