Having problems with your Bosch 24 in. SHU6802UC / SHU6806UC Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a Kitchen Aid built in dishwasher. It has always cleaned the dishes beautifully except for the sandy gunk that it occasionally leaves on items, especially glasses and coffee cups. Recently, it has become worse. Have used Cascade for years, including the little pods. What can be causing this problem?


Answers :

There is a filter at the bottom of the dishwasher where the dishwasher drains. This filter is probably plugged. You may also have a kink in the drainline. The dishwasher usually drains into either a drainpipe under the sink or into the disposal. If your disposal is full this will also cause the dishwasher to not drain properly.

What could be causing white powdery residue on dishes, glasses & silverware? I have checked the heater element - seems to be hot, using Cascade powder as usual, we have and have had hard water, we do have a new water heater set on 'low' setting - temp of water measured at 113 deg at kit tap. This washer has worked well for 12 years, then white powdery residue. Thanks, Phil

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.1383 is about 4 years old. The past 2 months it has developed a strong plastic or chemical smell. The smell has tainted brand new glasses that then have the odor when they are taken from the shelf to use. It is very strong during use and can be smelled throughout the house. I have taken everything out down to the screen to look for debris or anything that could cause the smell. I have tried the vinegar remedy and also scrubbed the entire inside with bleach. Nothing

Asko dishwasher model DW 20.3 whichi s without a doubt the worst dishwasher I have ever had. The low water usage is the only plus -- and why we bought it since we have septic.

I have tried everything, including all of the recommendations to (1) use a very small amount of detergent (2) get biodegradable detergent (3) use more rinse agent (4)

I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher. Serial Number 15989990 Model 665. My dishes are not getting clean. Lots of residue on glasses on top rack and dishes streaked. Any ideas?

My glasses come out with a rainbow-oil looking glaze on them. It seems to be baked on, because all the scrubbing now doesn't seem to take it off. It didn't do this for the first few years we used it. The only thing that has changed is that we put in a whole-house water softener. We've been using Cascade liquid soap with Jet Dry rise aid.


I'm sure the water is doing it ... I think it is because of the soft water and maybe it is the other way around - could be the salt or what ever the softening agent is in your device.

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. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through
