I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

The water does not get hot enough. I think it's the reason why dishes are not coming out clean. In normal conditions do I need to wash the dishes (like the manager of this apt. complex suggests) before I put them in the dishwasher?

Tank temp Our School Dist. has a Hobart dishwasher Model AM 15 T. After filling the unit it reaches a tank temp. of approx. 160 F, but when it is run through a couple cycles the temp. falls below 140 F, the min. wash temp is 150 F. The supply from the hot water tank is approx. 140 F. The rinse cycle reaches well above the 180 F min. Is there anyway to adjust the tank temp. on this model or could you suggest a solution to the problem. Thank-you John Fry

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

I pressed the high temp ater, heated dry, high temp water, heated dry buttons to try to reset. I also ran the hot water line that feeds the dishwasher until the water was hot. Nothing has helped.

We have a +11 year old Bosch SHU3006/UC/U06 that never leaves the wash cycle. We had to stop it during our last test run at 3 hours.

We checked and noticed that the water in the machine was only around 90 degrees during a wash cycle. We do not have exploded views or parts drawings, nor electrical schematics. I wou
