Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

The dishwasher must be connected to an adequate hot water supply.

Adequate meaning a good strong rate of flow and pressure of hot water.

That should answer your question. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My Bosch SHU436UC/17 goes thru its cycle OK, but dishes aren't very clean. During the wash, the water isn't very warm, but at the end of the cycle, the dishes are very hot. Any ideas?


Is the water supply hooked up to the hot water are you rinsing the dishes before you insert them in the dishwasher did your dishwasher low on

Remove the drain hose and check if you have any residual into it. After 11 years your appliance may need a thourought cleaning.
Check also if the pump has enough pressure.

Just got a new Bosch dishwasher (forget which model). After the dishwashing cycle has ended (even long after), the dishwasher and dishes are still wet. Was this an installation problem? Thanks


Hi -
I can't see how any installation problem would cause this - if the dishes are still wet at the end of the cycle, you'll probably find the water isn't heating during the wash cycle. The dishwasher uses steam to heat the washing compartment and dry the dishes. It would appear that the dishwasher isn't heating water internally.
Even if the washer was accidentally connected to the cold water supply ** (see note), this shouldn't happen as regardless of the water supply temperature, the washer should still heat the water to the correct temperature internally.
** UK dishwashers should be connected to the cold water supply. For US installations, dishwashers are commonly connected to the hot water supply. For other locations, please consult your installation instructions.
I suggest you start a regular wash cycle and leave it to run for 10-15 minutes. Then open the door and test the temperature of the water in the base of the washer by hand. The water should be hot and there should be steam present in the washer when you open the door.
If the water is cold or only warm, the water isn't being heated internally or isn't heating to the correct temperature, in which case you should contact the retailer or Bosch Service immediately for a replacement. Do not accept an offer of repair on a brand new washer!
Additionally, do not attempt to repair the dishwasher yourself when under warrantly as this will invalidate the warranty.
Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know your location and the model number of the washer. This should be laser-etched into the top of the door if you can't find it on any of your paperwork.
Regards, BElectric

Bosch SMU7052UC gets stuck in wash cycle. Pressing alot of buttons, on/off, I can move it to rinse where it sticks again. No drying either. Any suggestions?


I have a 10 year old Bosch SMU 7000 and the drying function has ceased. Dishes are wet after all cycles. From what Ive read this isn't worth fixing because Bosch are so difficult to get into.

Dishes are not coming out fully clean


first if the pump is running and you can hear it washing it should clean now hot water cleans dishes not the washer the hotter the better at least 130-135 degrees modern dish washers use less water than older models so if you don't get the water as hot as you can stand it at the sink before you turn the washer on you can fill it with cold water second its important that you use jet dry and if your dishes aren't dry at the end of the cycle then on most washers you can turn the disp up for more hope that helps let me know
