Having problems with your Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a Bosch SHU66C02UC/14 dishwasher that leaves a white deposit on the dishes especially plastic drinking glasses. Suggestions are that it is not dispensing enough rinse agent. How can I adjust that or determine if that is the problem?


Answers :

This could simply be a detergent problem, but is most likely due to a low salt level in the water softener. The salt is used by the water-softener to prevent hard-water deposits which result in white stains on crockery and glasses. There are several things which can cause this:
\015\012
\015\0121. There is no salt in the salt container.
\015\0122. The lid on the salt container isn't screwed on properly. (Don't overtighten though!)
\015\0123. Water softener is set too low
\015\012
\015\012If you've checked and topped up the salt level and the lid is screwed on fully, then your water softener may be set too low. You should consult your user manual / installation instructions to change the setting.
\015\012
\015\012The white deposits can also be caused by the rinse-agent being set too low. On your washer, the adjustment will be on a dial under the flap where you refill the rinse agent. I think it's numbered 1-5, so if it's set on 1, try number 3, if it's on 3, try 4 or 5. You may have to adjust a couple of times until you get it right.
\015\012
\015\012If this doesn't solve the problem, try changing your detergent. Check the packaging and if your using phosphate-free detergent, try one containing phosphates. Phosphate-free is more eco-friendly though!

Excessive foaming when using Rinse Only Cycle in Kitchenaid Dishwasher. I've had this dishwasher only 3 weeks. There is no detergent in the dispenser. Rinse Cycle should be only water; no soap.

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the

I have a GE Profile Dishwasher (PDW9200N00WW). A red light for the smart dispenseer of soap just appeared in the status area of the control panel (to the left of the reset/start button). I could find nothing in the manual addressing that and I recently refilled the soap dispenser. What does the red light mean and why doesn't the red light go off? I only had enough soap to fill it halfway and will get more to completely fill it. Is that the problem--only half full?

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

We have the same problem. At first, we were getting a horrible detergent film on everything. We thought that was because the detergent cup wasn't opening or the water was too hard or not hot enough. We kicked up the rinse agent as high as possible, switched to a liquid detergent, and only placed shorter items towards the door. The cup still wouldn't open consistently and our dishes still needed to be re-cleaned. We stopped closing the cup. No change. Why would liquid detergent leave a powder fil
