Question about Bosch 24 in. SHY66C05 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Very filmy looking glasses

Almost since the beginning of installing our Bosch SHY66C05 three years ago, all glass dishes appear filmy and have lots of water stains. I could understand the hard water we have being a contributing factor, except that our old Maytag always cleaned well despite the water. We've tried different soaps, using very little soap (as instructed by a repair man), and the glasses are always the same... white, filmy glasses. Any thoughts or suggestions??

    My glassware, flatware and plates are etched and look dirty (your "filmy" term is good) Joel (not a good customer experience) at Bosch said it was because I probably had to soft of water. Our water is actually hard where I live so that's not a contributing factor. What have you tried? I'm ready to buy a new dishwasher. I already need to buy new dishes before I entertain as it's so embarrassing.

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Dishes are coming out filmy, not sure if it's soap or what but glasses are becoming more and more clouded. Doesn't seem to matter weather things are on the top or bottom rack


Try adding some "Lemi-Shine" to the soap dispenser with your regular detergent. With the removal of the phosphates in the soap, this is a common result.

Dishes and glasses being etched; looking dirty; embarrassing


First of all, if you're talking about actual glass as opposed to crystal, glass can etch easily. Why? Because like crystal, there are variations in its quality. Cheap glass will etch faster with the use of an electric dishwasher compared to higher quality glass.

Did you know that the main constituent in most automatic electric dishwasher detergents is sodium hydroxide (lye) and chlorine bleach (another caustic acid)

A Bosch dishwasher has very long wash cycles, further exposing your dishes to the possibility of etching damage. You should stop using the sani-rinse cycle if there is such an option and switch to a gel format detergent as opposed to a powder. Use a rinse agent such as Jet-Dry. This should solve your etching problem.

Spotty, filmy glasses


Even if you are sending it 120 degree water from your hot water heater, if the internal heating element has failed, your will get poor cleaning, including a film on your glassware.
Replacing the heating element will almost certainly fix the problem.
Good Luck!

Washing leaves spots


If your dishes or glassware appear filmy or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you're using and adjusting your hot water heater's water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water. First you'll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, you can wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or use a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic) according to label directions. If film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature. See "Doesn't wash well," above. Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn't anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps: 1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don't use extra hot settings, such as "Power Scrub" and use "Energy Saver" dry cycle. 2) Adjust detergent amount. 3) Don't pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.
