The detergent cup can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening at time. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. The detergent cup opened by a bi-metal switch or a wax motor located inside your dishwasher door(behind the detergent cup). If cup's cleaning will not solve the problem, you should replace the bi-metal switch or the wax motor (depend which of them is used in your machine). Another option is just to place the detergent tablet on washer's bottom before starting its cycle. Good luck !

SOURCE: Water not hot

I don't know if its hooked up to hot water or if it heats the water itself, but it was always hot and loads of steam at the end of the cycle, now there is no steam when I open the door and the dishes feel cold and wet! Not sure what's going on!

Most dishwashers work best when the food is rinsed off the dishes before they are put in the dishwasher. Also, run the hot water into the sink until it is hot and then turn on the dishwasher. good luck.

Bosch dishwashers often have bad circuit boards.

You either do not have enough water getting itno the machine or it is not hot enough. 5 years old so I would suspect a plugged screen on the fill valve.

A couple of times I've found that the dishwasher tablet I'm using (Finish) hasn't dissolved correctly. I found it in the cutlery box the last time. I've been putting it on the 65 degree...


I am guessing you are using the Centigrade temperature scale ... which would be 149 degrees F. 149 is way hot in terms of regular house hold use. Probably just right for a dish washer.

I would expect most tablet detergent would disolve properly at this temperature and with proper water pressure in the machine. You should have plenty of both in this machine. May I suggest you give liquid dish washer detergent a try to see the results?

I went to take out my dishes out of the dishwasher this morning and the tablet was sitting at the bottom of the machine half disolved and most of my dishes weren't washed properly. What is the problem?


1. Check that water enters dishwasher.
2. Check that water is heated,tablet door will then open, this allows the propellor to shoot hot water at tablet to dissolve.

The dishwashing tablet won't dissolve. We've run it three times and are still having this problem.


The water may not be hot enough to disolve the tablet. Sometime during the wash cycle open the door and check the temp of the water. If it is cool you may need to run the tap water at the sink until it gets hot and then start your dishwasher.

I have had my dishwasher for 3 years. In the past few days the tablet that i put in hasnt been disolving and washing the dishes. The compartment where you put the tablet opens its just the tablet doesnt...


I would say you are not getting any water flow since the water dissolves the tablet.

When starting it listen for the water valve opening and open door and see if there is any water.

If not it is probably the solenoid or a defective or blocked water valve which is not opening.

It sounds like you have a water supply issue. If you are on well water the screen in the water valve may be clogged. You can access this, remove it and clean it on most dishwashers. It is located in the valve where the water hooks up to the unit.
