Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

My Bosch dishwasher has been failing to clean my dishes for over a month now. My dishes have a chalky film on them, my glassware is cloudy, and my stainless utensils are dingy--handwashing these items does not remove the film. The model number of the dishwasher is SH16805UC. I have tested my water softener system and that is functioning properly. My Rinse Agent dispenser is full (I use Jet Dry). I cleaned the dishwasher twice with Jet Dry brand cleaner. I tried putting a 1/4 cup of Borax in

My dishwasher is leaving a film on all the dishes some of the times. Other times the appliance works fine but more and more often it is leaving a white film on all the dishes as though the rinse cycle is not working well. I have tried filling the jet dry compartment and have been using the same jet dry and detergent as always. The dishwasher is about ten years old and has been working well up to a few weeks ago.

Bosch dishwasher Model SHU43C02UC/17 consistently leaves film on glassware, leaves residue in the bottom of glasses in the back position of the top rack, and sometimes leaves gritty residue on dishes throughout the dishwasher.

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 Kenmore dishwasher. A few years ago I was told there was a recall on certain models that there was a defect in the rinse agent part. I was told not to use any Jet dry. My glassware has a film on it. I was wondering if I could put white vinegar in the rinse agent area. Otherwise the washer works fine. My model #363-15171000 Serial # SZ305300R Thanks in advance.

I have had my Bosch dishwasher for about 2 years. Over the last 8 months or so my dishes come out with a white film over them. I do have hard water, but have had it for over 20 years without a problem like this. The white film is all over dishes, silverware and the inside of the stainless steel washer.

Dishes and the dishwasher look dirty after they run, like it redistributed dirty water. The door is very dirty/filmy except right under the soap dispenser, like someone squirted dirty water on it but wiped right under the soap dispenser. If I run it a second time with vinegar it gets clean, but that is crazy, esp since it takes 2 1/2 hours a load. I have 2 of them and both are doing it. I have changed soaps, added more soap, used less soap, pre-rinsed dishes, put them in filthy, used jet-dry, no
