Electrolux Dishwasher EWD6505GS0B won't heat water?


Hi - If the unit is not drying nor cleaning properly, there are two main things to check first. Is the incoming water temperature at least 120F (49C)? If not, I strongly suggest that the temperature be adjusted on your water heater. Are you using rinse aid? Use a rinse agent to increase drying performance and using Sanitize or Air Dry Off mode also helps improve drying. If any proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately. Unit may have a faulty heating element a communication problem with the board not responding.

Sounds like it may just need a good cleannig. The bottom arm is easily removable. Take it off and remove the screen and see if there's any gunk that has accumulated in there. Also make sure the drain hose is positioned in a way that it will create a water trap to keep drainage from re-entering the dishwasher after the drain cycle ends.

The water is not draining after the rinse cycle


try cleaning your airgap. that's usually the problem when a dishwasher will not drain properly. if that doesn't do it, it's probably pump related. good luck :)

Dishwasher smells like fish


There are several possible causes.

First, make sure the machine is properly installed with the drain hose up in a loop or an air gap before going down to the drain. This is to ensure no dirty water or smells from the sour or garbage disposer backs up into the machine.

Sometimes nasty stuff gets trapped inside internal parts of the machine and inside the sprayer arms. It is normally easy to remove the sprayer arms for cleaning, on reasonably modern Bosch machines they can also be opened up for easy access.

There are also special dishwasher cleaning agents that you can use to perform periodic cleaning cycles. Some believe it is important to use rinse agents to minimize the problem, maybe it is worth trying if you don't use it.

If there is warranty left on the machine I would advise you to complain, there is a slight possibility there is something wrong in the machine for instance bad choice of insulation lining that have been known to emit foul smells.

Good luck with tracking down the cause of this!

There is a terrible smell in the dishwasher


All DW that I know of will have water sitting at the bottom.. it keeps the seal moist..check your drain line make sure its clean and not clog... when your DW goes into drain listen to see if its drainning like it did when you first used it... I'll check back later..

Cleaning out dishwasher


Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.

Dishwasher has an odor

Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle.
• Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use.
• Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.)
• For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light
Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle
by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching
the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher
cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.

Good Luck
