Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

I have a Bosch SHU6802UC dishwasher that cycles long and doesn't seem to empty the water (appears in sump and is "yucky" according to my wife), The unit came with our house and is at least 10 years old. Is this a situation where i should consider a new unit or are there some economical fixes to try first?

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


That's not the full model number,there should be four more numbers.anyway does it have a heating element in the bottom of the tub,if so feel it with your hands,a piece of plastic could of hit it and is still melting when you run it,you can try using ... Dishwashers

I am an Australian who has bought a second hand Defy Dishmaid dishwasher from a South African work mate. It is a 2/3 year old machine that he bought over from South Africa. When he moved into a new house the machine did not fit his kitchen bench opening much to his frustration so he sold it. When placed in my kitchen it was a tight fit and upon recent inspection the floor pan of the unit, it may have buckled. It worked well until recently when we did some renovations when I needed to remove

The unit is 2 years old with very little use.

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...

The bottom spray arm screw seems to be stripped and just turns , so I'm having trouble removing it. This is the first time I've tried removing it. It is at least 5 years old, but the dishsoap dispenser didn't open this time so I figured it would need cleaning. What do I try now? What will happen if I can't tighten the screw back up. I've tried and it slips. Help Please.

I set up a drip system years ago and now am looking to replace it (old, worn, leaks) but the problem is this-I can't push any fitting (be it connectors, tees, etc) onto the main hose. Both hose and fittings are 1/2''. The fittings in the original system were not near as difficult to use-I also tried hot water (fittings) and ice water (hose), nothing. Is there any size difference between the old and new components?


It's not really a solution-it seems there are two sizes OD (.700", .620") both called 1/2" tubing. The appropriate sized fittings must therefore be used ... Raindrip R333CT Swivel Tee Adapter

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom.

We have a 6 year old Jenn Air dishwasher model JDB2150AWP We had a cracked door close unit which we replaced but got a short while restoring connections I am wondering if there is an internal circuit breaker, relay or fuse on these machines that we need to check and possibly replace since we cannot get it to run at all. No power or lights at all. I believe all connections are secure and we replaced the door close unit with new parts.

Our Phillips SL2000 dishwasher (~20 years old?) has a leak from the door right hand bottom end when its splashing. The seals appear to be OK to touch and slightly pressing the door inwards does not reduce the leak. What could be the reason and is it worth repairing? The inside looks really good for its age and I am trying to extend its life at least a few years with minimal cost. Please advise.


When one of the sprayer arms develops a leak and sprays water in a downward direction toward the bottom of the door it can leak because it's not made to be sprayed on the seal in that direction. You might get wet but hold the arms still and watch for ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.
