Hi
\015\012\015\012

The issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is\015\012bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's\015\012tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and\015\012when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The\015\012float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of\015\012water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's\015\012filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the\015\012device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch\015\012terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity.\015\012Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's\015\012button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails\015\012either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please\015\012post back for further assistance.

Rinse Aid dispenser seems to use a lot of product. Could almost need to be refilled daily. Is there somewhere or somehow to determine where an internal leak may be or to check that the rinse aid door is leaking or is not the problem. This seemed to happen very suddenly.

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
