Question about Bosch 23 in. SHU33A Built-In Dishwasher

1 Answer

Upper Rack We got Bosch after our old dishwasher broke. But the Bosch has a MUCH worse upper rack. We can't figure out how to stack glasses so they don't fall over. Are we missing parts or did we buy the El Cheapo? Is there a better rack? Mac

    We built a new home and got a bosch dishwasher.. You are supposed to be able to snap the bottom prongs to lay things flat but they come apart from the sides and I spend alot of time snapping them back in when I have dishes. I absolutely hate this bottom rack and get frustrated everytime I use my dishwaher. It is a very poor design. any salutions ? Barbara

Contact Bosch and ask if there are any other rack configurations for this model. From memory I think there might be 1. I also remember that they made an insert to go into this particular top draw...check on that also Regards

Bosch SHU 8805 upper arm is getting no water.


replace the upper water arm conduit and wash arm hub as they leak under years of pressure and the o-rings leak water and then it can't hold pressure and supply the upper arm with full pressure water,also replace the center arm conduit if it has one as this will wear out too

Upper wash tube assembly came off back of unit. can not reattach.


We had the same problem with our Bosch 4800 and found that the upper wash arm and tube assembly should attach to the bottom of the upper rack (rather than to the back of the dishwasher). The wash arm and tube assembly slides in and out with the upper rack. When the dishwasher door is closed the tube assembly is forced up against the back mounting/water supply.

Top rack is not level. Glasses and cups roll forward


I assume that the bottom rack is level and the upper rack is not.
On the LG dishwashers, you can remove the upper rack by removing the little gray clip at the front of the rails. Each will fall off in your hands. You can then pull the basket out.
Place it on the floor and confirm that all wheels roll properly and all touch evenly. Resolve any problems on the rack via LG service parts.
Inspect the rails still inside the dishwasher, confirm that they are paralel and level.
Replace the upper basket carefully, making sure the wheels all slide into the rail evenly.
Please update me on what was done to finally resolve the problem.

Test by pulling out the lower rack and run an upper load, it may just be a loading issue. Some washers are better than others, in that they have stronger moters and impelors than others. The impellor may have something like a fork, knife, or broken glass in it.

Dishwaser not rinsing properly


I had this problem twice with my Bosch and both times required different fixes but they both worked. 1. I got this one out of the manual. Make SURE that you push the upper rack totally back. There is a connection back there that fits into a fitting on the back of the rack and pushes the water through the upper arm. 2. I had taken off the extra rack that attaches to the back of the lower rack. Then I put it back on wrong. It should not have the prongs appearing behind the rack. Both of these situations caused cloudy/dirty dishes. Also, because of the lack of water, it clogged up the filters. Remove the filters and clean them well. Then make sure you have neither of these issues going on. My dishwasher returned to great washing.

Upper rack travel sticks and jams.....


you have a bad bearing retainer. you will need to call an asko parts dealer and order 8 upper rack ball bearings, and two ball bearing guides (they are grey plastic and break over time, causing the rack to jam. To replace tham, you must take the upper rack out by turning the plastic retainers on the front of both rails 90 degrees towards the outside of the machine. The slide the whole basket out. Now look at the back of the rails inside the dishwasher. there shoul be 2 more grey plastic retainers with bumpers on them in the rear. These must be pried out wiht a screwdriver (be careful, have cut myself several times on this job till i figured out the best way to do it. cover the bottom hole in the dishwasher with a rag, as you are likely to drop the old bearings when you slide the rails out. Slide out both the rails. Put your new (or old if youve got all 8) ball bearings into the ball bearing holders, then put the holders into the rail thats attached to the dishwasher. slide the rails back in, andthen put all your retainers back in and your rack. you may have to slide the rack in and out a few times before it will center the bearings and work smoothly. Should cost you about $12 in parts. Good Luck!

Dishes not getting clean


brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
