Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher
The Bosch DW does not clean the dishes well. There are always streaks and film on the glasses (upper rack). The DW smells bad. There is water that sits in the well at the bottom of the DW (under the filter), and it is cloudy. I have tried using a different cleaner, using different amounts of rinse aid, repositioned the dishes, running the water on hot (in the sink) before turning on the DW. I have even had a plumber take out the DW and change the water lines!
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.

Sounds like blockages still, there is also a food filter in the bottom, this has to be cleaned out very regularly, check the waste pipe again also, you may also need salt, this helps the dishwasher keep clean and free from streaks, its special salt you buy just for appliances running hot water first with any domestic automatic appliance is a fairy tail fix, it never ever does any good and can not possibly work by design, all you do is waste hot water?
