I have a Bosch Exclusiv dishwasher (Model SGS 8812 GB) which, from installation in January 2002, has consistently caused glassware to go cloudy. This happens after about 8/10 weeks from buying new glasses. I use Finish Rinse Aid and Salt and have an independent water softener installed. This is proving an expensive exercise, as I need to replace glassware every 10/12 weeks. Have you any suggestions, please? Thank you - Doreen Sheardown


You are sandblasting your glasses. The added salt with the salt from the softener is causing the cloudiness. If you are rinsing the dishes to be mostly clean first and using the suggested amount of detergent you are way over sudsing.#1 St ... Bosch 24 in. SHE43C05UC Stainless Steel Free-Standing Dishwasher

I did not put salt in my new dishwasher just used a tablet. DIshwasher started up and then stopped saying water flow problem was this my fault? Rang service desk who were very rude and made a big thing about the salt which I did not think was a big thing since live in softw ater area.


Absolutly not your fault robert. nothing to do with salt atal. if its water flow problem could be a faulty flow meter in which case if ur dishwasher is under 28 days u can refuse a repair and demand a replacement.\015\012\015\012hotpoint ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

Would you be kind enough to give me a wate

Hi. Just bought a Blomberg dishwasher & have a question about the water softening feature. What is the appropriate type of salt? The manual says no table salt, no coarst salt. It recommends a highly soluble type salt, fine-grained or powdered. What kind of salt is this? (And, why wouldn't water softening salt pellets work?)


You will find the correct type of salt on the same isle as the detergent in the supermarket.\012\012Regards\012\012Ian ... Dishwashers

Hello. My dishwasher has been pretty perfect for four years. When my house water softener ran out of salt, I added rinse aid and salt to the dishwasher for the first time. I subsequently added salt to the softener. Recently [a few weeks later] the glasses have all come out cloudy, something that never happened before. Also, the cutlery has whitish marks on it which are impossible to remove. I would love some help on this. Many thanks, Terry


Try cleaning the machine by adding white vinegar to the wash water (before the water-fill procedure finishes). Put your stained dishes and cutlery in with the wash to remove the hard water deposits. The combination of salt and rinse aid may have help ... Dishwashers

Leaking dishwasher There is standing water in the dishwasher when it's not being used. Recently we had a garbage disposal installed and was wondering whether this may cause the water from the sink to settle in the dishwasher. Also, the water rises and leaks on the floor. We have to run a wash cycle to drain and dry out the dishwasher. What do you think the problem is?

We have an Rangemaster RDW459F1 integrated dishwasher and there is a strong taste of salt on everything.We indroduced 2 kg of salt into the dispenser after first filling with water as instructed. We live in a hard water area but even so I turned the arrow more to the - side, but it has not made any difference. It did seem alot of salt to put but it was first time being used. Can you help me please? Jackie


Stop using the tablets. they don't work in hard water areas. I think what you are dealing with is hard water deposits. Use "Lemi shine" for your main wash and the packets for your pre-wash. No one has harder water than where i live... Lemi shine work ... Dishwashers

Bought a Whirlpool Energy Star-rated DU1055XTVS0 four months ago. Have had intermittent problems with the water not running during the cycle. Have read instructions, done the trouble-shooting, etc. Even when the water runs, very often the dishwasher tablets don't totally dissolve. (And the tablets work better than liquid and Jet Dry -- I've had etching problems using that combo.) Very disappointed with this product so far.

I have a fridigaire dishwasher PLD4555RFC0. The dishwasher now only cleans poorly if at all. The detergant used is powder and the detergant has been the same since purchasing the unit 3 years ago. The detergant does not completely dissolve on some dishes and is now staining/etching the dishes. I do not have a water softener, however, have tried the flushing with vinegar multiple times with no improvemnt.
