Having problems with your Bosch 24 in. SGS47E02 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher ?

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean

\015 However carefully I clean the filters, stack the contents, use high quality dishwasher tabs etc the machine leaves food debris all over the plates and inside the machine casing. Any stray rice grains or spinach causes particular problems. I can't work out how the food debris can actually pass through the filters and be pumped out. I am clearing the plates so thoroughly now that I might as well wash them by hand! I have never had this with other makes of dishwasher that I have had before. This was an expensive machine, it is only a few months old and I am thoroughly fed up with it.\015\012Like Chiggsy I clean the filter very carefully but food is often left on items; also, clean dry cups and glasses foam a bit when water is poured in as if a soapy film has been left. When I rinse carefully subsequent fillings are OK. Previous dishwashers have had a fine gauze filter fitted to the outside of the courser main filter. In my current model this fine gauze fits below the perforated "tray" in which the main filter fits and relies on compression (as the main filter is screwed down) to seal it top and bottom. as the main filter only screws down so far (bayonet fitting) I am not sure how well the fine one seals. Model is Exxcel (can't find more detailed reference) The top rack cleans fine....the bottom rack doesn't...As odd as it seems the left front bottom doesn't clean well..I don't see a blockage and the arm spins freely...HELP!!\015

Check the following to address this issue--


1. No water
\015\012\011\011\011Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water \015\012\011\011\011shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to \015\012\011\011\011the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill \015\012\011\011\011cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at \015\012\011\011\011the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either \015\012\011\011\011side), in which case replace the water valve.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0112. Not enough water
\015\012\011\011\011If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This \015\012\011\011\011could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located \015\012\011\011\011under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the \015\012\011\011\011bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0113. Clogged spay arms
\015\012\011\011\011There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. \015\012\011\011\011Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray \015\012\011\011\011arm.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0114. Water temperature is too low
\015\012\011\011\011To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees \015\012\011\011\011Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0115. Not enough soap
\015\012\011\011\011If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to \015\012\011\011\011both parts.
\015\012\011\011\011
\015\012\011\011\0116. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
\015\012\011\011\011This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the \015\012\011\011\011dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.
The fact that you only get the problem on the bottom basket shows the fault lies with the bottom spray arm first thing to do is put machine on with no dishes in it let it run for about 5 mins,then quickly pull door open,(it will stop) check to see which arm is still rotating it will probably be the top one, then line both arms up so they are at 12.0clock position shut the door and wait for a minute or two pull the door open agian and see if the bottom arm has moved from where you put it,if it hasnt it will almost certainly be blocked even a tiny bit of eggshell or rice will stop it turning,the very end holes are what drive the arm round even if all the others are clear it will not turn.
\015\012remove it and tap it and give it a shake you will hear debris inside of arm this needs to be washe out under hot water tap.

Bosch Dishwasher I currently own a Bosch dishwasher. One of the selling points, if I'm remembering right, of the dishwasher was it was supposed to super heat the hot water that is coming in from the tap. I have 3 problems. We have to rinse the dishes by hand before putting them in the dishwasher, Otherwise they won't come out clean. The dishwasher will run for four hours sometimes longer. It doesn't seem like it is heating the water any hotter than what comes out of the tap.

I own a Bosch dishwasher. It is about 5 years old. In the last year I have noticed that is isn't cleaning well and that there is a white residue on all the dishes and especially on the inside of the dishwasher. I poured a whole gallon of white vinegar into the dishwasher about a month ago and let it run the whole cycle without dishes. Since then the white residue has deminished, but now the dishes are not clean when I run the dishwasher. I notice the white residue mostly on the silverware w

Bosch dishwasher Over the weekend my drains backed up into the dishwasher. After cleaning the drains I ran the dishwasher 3 times. Under the screen there is still about an inch of water. I never noticed this before because I never removed the screen before. Can you tell me if this is normal or is there a problem with the dishwasher. The water in the little area below the screen is clean.

My Bosch dishwasher has been failing to clean my dishes for over a month now. My dishes have a chalky film on them, my glassware is cloudy, and my stainless utensils are dingy--handwashing these items does not remove the film. The model number of the dishwasher is SH16805UC. I have tested my water softener system and that is functioning properly. My Rinse Agent dispenser is full (I use Jet Dry). I cleaned the dishwasher twice with Jet Dry brand cleaner. I tried putting a 1/4 cup of Borax in

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.

My Bosch dishwasher has had a problem since we had it installed. It smells like garbage after sitting for a few hours. This problem is there whether it has been run or not. Water is always standing in the large drain tube under the "filter" and it doesn't look clean.

Not a practical suggestion even if it didn't sm
