Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

We have a bosch model #SHU9902UC. the dishes frequently have a residue after the complete cycle is done. this is alleviated somewhat if the "power" wash cycleis used, but there is still a residue. any sugggestions? we jsut moved to a new home. the unit is probably 10 yuears old.Thank you. Bruce


Answers :

Bruce, we have the same unit and had the same problem. Try using a LOT less detergent. The repair tech claims that the manual says to only fill about 25% full. Also, we tried different detergents and found that the Finish (formerly Electrosol) works the best. Another not so great feature of this dishwasher is that it does not have a disposal unit so periodically clean out the drain pump area to remove any large chunks that the kids didn't feel like rinsing off.

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

Moved homes and took old dishwasher to new home (about 3yrs old), now seems the machine is loud (sounds like disposal is louder) all insullation is still on machine. we did go fom carpet floor to tile floor. It is quiet when water filling and draining but loud in washer or rinse


Make sure your unit is secured properly[screwed up into counter and leveled], to minimise vibration. other wise you may want to try putting some insulation behind the kick plate. ... Dishwashers

I have a Frigidaire fdb710lcs0 that never seems to complete a cycle, runs continous, leaves a white cloudy film on the plastic dishes, soap residue on the other dishes, and has a stinky smell now. I first noticed this when I turned the thing on efore leaving for work, came home & it was still running. I have recently wiped "crud" from the bottom inside of the unit where it meets the seal. Although I have read other posts about people cleaning the filter or running a vinegar solution, I don't kn

The program button has stopped moving round I put dishwasher on and went to work and it was still washing the dishes when I got home from work 8 hours later. I thought it might have stuck and been a one off but no it happens every time is it the timer? is a new timer easy to fit?

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried

My viking dishwasher is not getting the dishes clean in certain areas of the dishwasher - they come out with food still on and/or greasy residue still left on. There is a white residue on alot of the glasses. Seems like it might be calcification - any way to clean the dishwasher to break down any calcification? might also be that water is not heating - how to best determine that? email is [email protected] and phone is 540-316-1263

Hotpoint Model HDA 3500N 10 BB Unit is only about a year old. The dial does not move. I noticed it when the washer was on for more than 3 hours and saw that the dial was still in the middle of the wash cycle. I then turned it to the rince cycle which operated there (not moving) until I manually moved it to dry. Did not move from there either. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Both dish drawers are leaving a chalky dried on residue on the dishes. I ran a cleaning detergent in both drawers, made sure salt in water softener was filled, checked filters, and they are still leaving residue. I've tried washing the dishes after to get the residue off and it is hard to remove. Also, I have not changed dish detergents.

I see that you have advised on the dishwasher soap residue problem in the past. I was just wondering if you have learned anything new since the last time you posted. I have this dw residue problem, too. I DON"T seem to have it with the gel packs. But my 3-level Kenmore did the job great up until about 6 months ago. Then, I bought a different dw soap and had trouble. So I changed brands. It STILL left a residue. SO bad that I phoned the company. They were completely noncommittal about the reason

Mod #: MDB6600AWB Ser #: 16505148CG No water comes out of spray arms, checked and cleaned filter-OK. Wash impeller is cracked where it slides onto the hexagon rod but it you take the filter flow plate off and put the impeller back on, when you put the unit on rinse only and quickly open the door you can see it is still turning and moving the water. The unit still fills and drains. it just does not have enough force with the impeller to force the water into the spray arms.

White Residue Yes...we have the same problem as well with the residue as was mentioned by several others. I guess our dishwasher is still under warranty since it is only 11 months old. It can be serviced if it is a defect or part malfunction but otherwise I may end up with a service bill. That would add to the ongoing frustrations we have with this appliance. Right now we call it our dish dirtier! We put fairy clean rinsed dishes in and....voila....out comes dirty dishes covered in white gr
