Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishes are molding that are left in dishwasher before cleaning

The dishwasher is only 1 year old, and recently the dishes left in the washer prior to being cleaned are growing mold within a day. This did not happen until recently, and had never been a problem before.

Also, quite a bit of residue is visible on the stainless steel below the rinse and detergent areas.

    SAME PROBLEM with my Bosch. Repairman said, "run some white vingear through to keep the line clean. It must be clogging up." Have done so, but problem continues. Standing water is stagnant water -- hence, the mold problem.



    Never had this problem with my prior, cheap dishwasher.

Mildew in washer


Hi Meredith, this is AP!

I understand you are struggling with mold spreading in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model PLD2560LCC. The average useful life of a dishwasher is about 13 years, so I would attempt to get a few more years from the dishwasher if you can. Chlorine bleach kills mold and helps remove most mildew stains. Dilute 1 cup of bleach in a gallon of water and scrub the interior of the machine with a stiff brush. Use a toothbrush to get in narrow areas, such as around door gaskets. Wear gloves to protect your hands when you use bleach, and also avoid mixing bleach with any other cleaning product. Run the dishwasher empty after cleaning it to rinse out the bleach residue. If stains remain after mold removal, scrub them away gently with a damp rag and mild scouring powder.

Or you could run a cycle with no dishes. Once the dishwasher has completed its initial fill, add 1 cup of white vinegar and complete the cycle. If you find that removes the mold I would open the dishwasher door after each use and allow it to dry out completely before closing it to prevent mold growth. Moisture, bits of food and a warm environment can lead to unwanted mold growth. If you won't be using the dishwasher for a while, such as when leaving for vacation, leave the door open while you are gone to ensure no trapped moisture leads to a mold or mildew problem.

I hope this information proves helpful to you, thank you for the post.

Thanks,

Foul odor on dishes and in dishwasher after cycle


It is very likely that your dishwasher is growing mold, in this condition. If it is causing your dishes the same issue, it may be wisest to obtain a dishwasher cleanser(Several detergent manufacturers now sell dishwasher cleaning items), which will hopefully kill off any mold colonies growing in your dishwasher's blades, and in your drain cap.

Mold grows on dishes in bosch dishwasher


Put a bowl filled with 2 cups of clorox on the lower rack and run a wash cycle (nothing else in the machine) this will kill the mold spores in the machine, and clear the smell.

Mold growing on dishes


Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.

New Bosch dishwasher mold before cycle


The Bosch is a very good dishwasher and it is very airtight. I would suggest you NOT leave the dishes inside that long, and always use the Power Scrub Plus cycle if you have it. It will get the water as hot as possible so mold does not continue to grow in the plumbing and filters.

It is NOT the dishwasher unit causing the problem.

Replace the pump, if you go through the trouble of repairing the pump and all the disassembly and then more problems will probably ensue. As far as location it is usually located under the washer. Accessed through the front service panel. Make sure you follow all safety procedures #1 being unplug the washer or turn off breaker prior to proceeding.
