I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support

Brand new dishwasher, installed last week. When it is done there is quite a lot of water standing in the bottom of the tub. It has only been run 2 times since installed and both times several inches of water were left standing. Is this something we could check or do I need to have the installer come back, which will probably take a week at least. Oh-KitchenAid #KUDC031VWH

I have a Bosch Exclusiv dishwasher (Model SGS 8812 GB) which, from installation in January 2002, has consistently caused glassware to go cloudy. This happens after about 8/10 weeks from buying new glasses. I use Finish Rinse Aid and Salt and have an independent water softener installed. This is proving an expensive exercise, as I need to replace glassware every 10/12 weeks. Have you any suggestions, please? Thank you - Doreen Sheardown


You are sandblasting your glasses. The added salt with the salt from the softener is causing the cloudiness. If you are rinsing the dishes to be mostly clean first and using the suggested amount of detergent you are way over sudsing.#1 St ... Bosch 24 in. SHE43C05UC Stainless Steel Free-Standing Dishwasher

BOSCH DISHWASHER,MODEL# SHV99A13UC19, I HAVE NO PROBLEM REMOVING THE EXISTING DISPENSER, HOWEVER INSTALLING THE NEW MUST REQUIRE A TOOL TO PULL IN THE NEW DISPENSER COMPRESSING THE GASKET SO THE CLIPS HOLD INTO PLASE. I NEED ANOTHER 1/16 OF AN INCH FOR THE LATCH ON THE CLIPS.

We live in an apartment and our hot point dishwashers timing is all off and i thought if i could fix it myself, i'd love to do that instead of calling our manager, i will call him, but if its an easy fix i'd like to try it out.. it will just stop in mid cycle, and you have to manually more it a fraction of an inch to get it restarted, then at the end it doesnt fully drain, and the drying takes forever, so if i cant fix it, i'll ask for a new one..


It might need a new mechanical timer (sounds like the timer is sticking) installed and the parts will cost money... so you might want to go the route of the manager. The dial that you turn to set the dishwasher is part of the mechanical timer. Someti ... Dishwashers

Hi, We have a Frigidaire dishwasher machine 1500 series with fully electronic control. It is a new unit, has been installed nearly 4 months ago. The other day, when I went to take the dishes out of it, I notice that the rubber gasket that seals the door had come off somehow. Along with it I saw, sitting on the bottom, two pieces that looked like part of the seal, but I didn't know where they came from. I put the rubber gasket back on, but now the pieces and now the dishwasher will leak when runn

My maytag dishwasher door will not latch shut, and all of the lights keep flashing. What does this mean and how can I fix it? or will I have to buy a new one....?

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

Bosch dishwasher the string on the door tensioner has broken I have the new part but dont know how to got out the lower part. Do I have to take off the hole door or is there an easy way to change it? It seems odd that as its string and must be prone to breaking that there is not a simple way to fix it.

... Bosch Dishwashers

Kude48fxbl - brand new out-of-the-box. When put through a test cycle after installing it, water poured out of the bottom left edge of the door. This was not associated with either the water input or the discharge hose, but rather seemed to come from the interior of the washer and out under the door. The door seemed well latched, and running it with some dishes in the bottom tray (not blocking the soap dispenser) didn't help.
