Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

Not dispensing detergent properly---not getting top rack clean-------could this be a problem with the kitchen drain? I clean the filters often. I have Model SHU43C Thanks for the help, Barbara Lawrence


Answers :

Hello Barbra. Not likely a drain problem because the machine is evacuating of the water from the sump. The bottom rack i assume is ok.
\015\012So the top rack in not doing it's job.
\015\0121.......clean out all of the timy holes in the spray arm.
\015\0122.......make sure there is nothing stppind the top arm from turning
\015\012 give it a flick to see if it spins around freely
\015\0123..... tall object in the bottom can stop the arm from turning.
\015\0124.......some bosch machines have a divertor valve to alternate the water from the top to bottom racks. The valve. if faulty can be stuck in the bottom position not allowing the top arm to turn. Yopu can check this by turnint both arms to line up with easch other, say both arm ends pointing to you . then close the door and start the machine. after a short while of hearing the water swishing, open the door and see if the arms ahve moved. if both arms are turning then you know the divertor valve is ok. Even if your model does not ahve a divertor valve this is a good way of testing the spray arm operation.
\015\012Always use good quality soap and avoid tablets. use powder and make sure you have rinse aid in the dispenser.

I have a Frigidaire ultra quiet energy star dishwasher and the dial gets stuck halfway through the cycle. It runs all day if I'm not home. And when the dishes come out, there's bits of dirt and what looks like gritty sand stuck on all the glasses. I was going to clean the filter out but I don't know how to do that. It's a ten year old model (at least) and I have no paper information about it. Help!

I can remove the filter, but it has several "windows" covered in mesh in which I can see debris, but I can't figure out how to open these "windows" to clean them. And how can I prevent the clogging to begin with?

I have model DU810SWPU3 Whirlpool dishwasher that is 1 yr old. Plastic dishes appear to have a film on them when cycle is complete. The water also seems to drain slowly. I assume that what appears to be the filter needs to cleaned but I'm not sure how to remove it to clean it. Is the plastic area with all of the square holes on the bottom of the appliance the filter? That part is what seems to be clogged. Thanks!
