Question about Bosch SHU5315UC Dishwasher

1 Answer

Our dishwasher is leaving a film on everything

Its a whit-ish film and it smells like a wet dog! Especially our glasses. I think the rinse-aid mechanism is broken. I've tried using different detergents and using less detergents as well as using vinegar, but nothing is working. I hand wash all our glasses now because the dishwasher is useless. Please help!! :)

I purchased a very expensive Bosch and now my dishes are ruined. I don't know how to get the dishwasher out and disconnect it!! you need to come up with a better solution or make a product that does not do this!!

Disconnect the water line to dishwasher.this may be messy.connect it to a garden hose. the hose must be new . after connecting take the other end of the hose and pour CLR solution in it using a funnel.get at least half a gallon in the hose. raise the hose as needed so all the solution will fit .pinch the hose so the CLR doesnt leak out.connect hose to faucet turn on water run a large load cycle.if dishwasher has two water hookups,then use clothes washer hookups.if the hose on the dish washer is smaller than the garden hose than get a reducer at a hardware store very cheap.if that dont work have your water tested for contaminants.

My new beco dishwasher is leaving a white film on everything. Glass is very cloudy. It has rinse aid and salt in it help.


Is the inside of the dishwasher clean? Have you emptied the filter and cleaned the jets in the spray arms?

LG Inverter Direct Drive, at the end of the cycle there is a grey -white residue on everything, interior,glasses,pots n pans. We use Cascade packets and Rinse-aid. Please help!!


The packets usually have detergent and rinse aid together, built in. If you also have liquid rinse aid in the automatic dispenser, you are getting a double dose, and that is causing the film. Use standard dishwasher detergent until the automatic rinse aid dispenser is empty, or at least turn the pointer indicator (located by the rinse agent filler) to the lowest setting possible to help somewhat.

It sounds like you may be using too much rinse aid or have changed from a detergent based tablet to an all-in-one type.

Reduce the amount of rinse aid in your wash by altering the setting on the rinse aid dispenser - usually a dial numbered 1-6. Lower the setting and see if this helps

My bosch dishwasher has suddenly started leaving everything cloudy, particularly the glasses. The salt is topped up, the rinse aid full, filters cleaned out.


You can experiment with different tablets/powders and check that the salt and rinse aid dispensers are correctly adjusted, but all dishwashers eventually cause glass to go cloudy and although it's a gradual process there's a point at which it suddenly seems to become noticeable. Any lead crystal glass will cloud very quickly indeed so must be handwashed if you want to avoid this. The cloudiness in glass is irreversible as it's caused by millions of microscopic cracks in the glass surface. Some crockery items are glazed with a process which can also turn cloudy over time in a dishwasher, white plates won't really show it but coloured ones do (especially blue and red). There are some tablets/powders which claim to have a glass protection additive, but this just slows down the process. The best way to slow the process is to wash at the lowest temperature you can.

Reduce detergent quantity. Check the rinse aid dispenser and fill if required..

Finally check your inlet water free flow to the machine. If the strainer is blocked clean the part.

As far as using the vinegar, this should be complete when there is NOTHING in the dishwasher. The idea is to remove the build up inside, not clean the dishes. Make sure to use only White Vinegar. Also, changes in the water of any kind can cause a build-up. Try using a little less detergeant and rinse.

Bosch dishwasher


Although I previously posted with the same problem of a film on the dishes after cleaning, I did find a section in the owner's manual which solved my problem. Lift up the rinse aid cap on the inside door - the factory setting is on "4". The rinse aid works in conjunction with your local water, which has variations in it's hardness or softness. When your dishes are streaky, lower the rinse aid setting to 1 or 2. If your dishes are spotted, raise the rinse aid setting higher.
