Specks of "sand-like" food on my dishes; water not draining

Bosch dishwasher Model SHX46AO5UC/14. I unscrewed and cleaned the trap and lifted the mesh plate to find water and food underneath.  Also had to wipe food off of bottom of dishwasher after cycle completed.  I presume the drain is clogged; can't feel a "screen" or anything that needs to be cleaned.  what's next?

    I have same problem with my SHU5316UC. My filter was all covered and crusted. Wanted to buy a new one, but can't find the part online.

I bought a replacement filter and that dramatically cut down on the amount of "specs." Now there are only a few in some of the glasses. I also cleaned out the drain underneath the screen, there were peas and corn in there, I just used a shop vac to **** them out. Seems to be much better now, I think a good inside cleaning of the washer will help out too. Hope this helps...

How to remove large food particle trap in a electrolux dishwasher model # EWDW6505GBO


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove large food particles that are trapped in your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GB0. First, I would suggest that you scrape away large pieces of food before putting any dish in your dishwasher.

Your dishwasher is equipped with a state of the art wash system. Periodically, the Glass Trap Filter and Large Food Particle Trap may need to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. The Glass Trap Filter is located in the center of the Large Food Particle Trap. The Glass Trap Filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. To remove items in the Glass Trap Filter, grasp the handle, lift out, empty and replace. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

You likely have food or soap buildup stuck behind the trap in and around the drain workings. The only remedy it to remove the trap cover or lower arm assembly, and start poking around. The food finds its way into the tiniest of places and sits there, but it dirties up the rinse cycle. I have to clean mine out about once per year.

Water not drainiNg after completion of cycle


Hi,
Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter and make sure the drain pump can turn freely. This should solve the draining issue.
As for the dishes not being cleaned on the top drawer check the holes on the top spray arm. If the holes are blocked up with food you will get poor wash results. Best way to clean the spray arm is to remove it by unscrewing it and giving it a good clean under the tap and poking the holes to clear any blockages.
Hope this helps

Bosch dishwasher is not draining all the water at end of cycle. In the bottom of the dishwasher under the mesh trap there is about a cup of water remaining after each cycle.


This is normal with a Bosch. They don't really vent out when they heat, and use a type of evaporation technology to dry the dishes. Best bet is to make sure first that the filter in the bottom is clean, (the little circle thingy on the bottom, turn it a quarter turn and pull it out, run it under cool water till it's clear, then put it back in the same way.) If the water is bothering you or is beginning to make a bit of a smell in there, leave the door cracked a little after you empty the dishes out. unfortunately though, it'll always leave water in the bottom. European technology.

My Bosch dischwasher is not draining completely. I've taken out the mesh filter and the square plastic drain cover. Should I unbolt the white cover which I presume covers the drain? thanks!


I had the same problem, twice. Both times, the technician simply removed the drain hose and cleared it of a small food particle. Save yourself the service charge by unhooking the hose yourself, clearing it and rinsing your dishes THOROUGHLY before washing.

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.
Regards

Bosch SHX46A dishwasher


I have a Bosch SHX46B05UC/14 and it stopped functioning right. It filled, it ran, it drained, it sounded okay, but I finally determined there wasn't enough circulation pump pressure to swing the spray arms. Turns out the problem was a pump pressure adjustment screw, accessible under the kick plate, had backed off--now if I can only figure out how to set it properly, low enough to clean the glassware, high enough not to break the pots and pans--or is it the other way around. I also found some beans in the drain sump (easy to remove cover plate from inside with a torx driver, large object trap not locked down properly and a riser for the upper spray arms not press fit sufficiently into pump outlet (I wonder if I blew the line while setting pump pressure. I AM looking for guidance on how to properly set the pump pressure, for the moment, I simply turned it into its spring loaded range and cranked it down a few turns.
