Question about Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher
Dishes come out of the wash cycle wet, dirty, streaky, and disgusting. I put them in cleaner then they come out. I even ran two extra cycles without soap so I wouldn't have the white bumps and streaks. I took out the bottom tray and there was a massive puddle under it. I tried to clean it up with a dish towel and cut my finger on a piece of glass that was stuck into the edge of the filter. But that couldn't block the whole thing. Can I take apart the whole bottom and clean it out first? How do you unscrew those funny looking screws throughout the bottom of the washer? I need help. Thanks, Diana

I have a Bosch SHX46B05UC/14 and it stopped functioning right. It filled, it ran, it drained, it sounded okay, but I finally determined there wasn't enough circulation pump pressure to swing the spray arms. Turns out the problem was a pump pressure adjustment screw, accessible under the kick plate, had backed off--now if I can only figure out how to set it properly, low enough to clean the glassware, high enough not to break the pots and pans--or is it the other way around. I also found some beans in the drain sump (easy to remove cover plate from inside with a torx driver, large object trap not locked down properly and a riser for the upper spray arms not press fit sufficiently into pump outlet (I wonder if I blew the line while setting pump pressure. I AM looking for guidance on how to properly set the pump pressure, for the moment, I simply turned it into its spring loaded range and cranked it down a few turns.

there is a new product out that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. I use to have ugly,white and cloudy looking glasses until i installed this product. after the first load my glasses looked fantastic!!!! its affordable and you can get it at dishwasherfilter.com.

searched oother sites. some report a circuit board problem where one of the solder joints overheated and burned out of contact. check yours and repair/replace if that is the problem.
if not at least you can rule it out.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description I'd say the issue actually is with the control...unfortunately. This is commonly associated with a heating fault on Bosch built dishwashers ( various models including Bosch, Thermador, Siemens, Gaggenau, and Neff ).
Since the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). These are the steps you'll need to follow to resolve it or at least investigate.
If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated.
It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board.
The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...this can also manifest as a long cycle time as I mentioned and eventually display's "1" on units with a display and usually very poor cleaning, no heating ( don't be fooled by the homes inlet hot water temperature ) as a result.
You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.
**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last. Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on their behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)
**Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**
If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine.
