Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C05 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch Excell Dishwasher

My Bosch dishwasher has never really been that good, often leaving a gritty residue in dishes on the top rack even when a light load. However, it has now more or less died. On the intensive programme instead of going to 98 minutes, it is only going to 33 minutes. All the programmes are the same except the Eco wash and Fast wash which go to 46 minutes and 18 minutes respectively but as with the other programmes no water comes in the machine and it just sounds like it's pumping water out all the time, except there's no water to pump out. The water heater seems to be working but that is the only thing that is working. The machine is less than 5 years old. Any suggestions? We live in a hard water area in the UK.

    my bosch initially was great, now after just one year it leaves a film on all glasses and the dishes and silverware are not coming out clean. I frequently clean the filter and have noticed standing water in the filter drain- is this normal?

Re: the gritty residue Check your spray arms. My Bosch arms clog regularly with little things. I have to unscrew the arm and run water through. Then I must pull out the food particle - usually a seed or kernel. Very frustrating as I do scrap garbage off before running the cycle. Would I buy another Bosch? Nope!

    I will never buy another Bosch again! Mine has been nothing but trouble, and it is only 2 1/2 years old!

Do you have hard water? Many states have passed laws that outlawed phosphate as an ingredient in dishwasher detergent. If you have hard water, the detergents don't work very well anymore. The residue is probably hard water deposits (calcium and magnesium). Not harmful but it looks awful on your dishes. There are some new products that were designed to solve this exact problem. They are inexpensive and effective. Can't say the name or I'll get banned (again). Internet search will uncover it.

Top rack dishes have a white gritty residue on them. i use washer cleaner and jet dry and it does not help. i don't know if there is filter to clean or not . what do i do?


Check whether the top rackspray arm is moving freely. Check the jet holes and remove clogs if any.

Hope the bottom rack is good in wash quality!

My dishwasher is leaving a lot of residue on dishes


I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

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.
