Dishwashers which are properly installed and regularly used won't normally have a problem with bad odors. Check the following: ?Was the drain hose brought in at the top of the cabinet, or down near the floor? it must be 34" from the floor. ?Do you run the unit at least once every 2 days? -Run a cycle with a quart of vinegar to clean the tub and pump. ?Does the disposal tend to back up slightly when the dishwasher drains? Drain may be clogged. -Don't use gel detergent! ?Check your water softener(If so equipped) These can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained Good luck!

SOURCE: Dishwasher insulation for heat

Hi marseibold,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your questoin is: You're wondering if you can further insulate your dishwasher for heat. You are redoing your kitchen, new appliances, cabinets, etc. and shortsightedly put the spice sliding pull-out cabinet next to the dishwasher. The spices get warm when you use the dishwasher. There is a bit of room between the cabinet and dishwasher. Any recommendations for further insulation?

Yes. I would get another insulation blanket off a d/w I'm disposing. Anyway, you need to get one and install it over the old one to decrease the heat transfer.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: dishwasher tils when door is open because the bracket is roken

There is now a universal dishwasher bracket for just this problem called E-Z DISHWASHER BRACKET. It is available through Braxton-Bragg or ask for it at a local granite fabricator. It is very simple to use.

SOURCE: The dishwasher is cleaning plates and dishes just

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description I'd say the issue is most likely with the control...unfortunately. I will also say this can be the result of too much detergent, but less likely as I'm sure you've had this machine for some time according to the model number. I will apologize in advance for this post appearing bunched and no proper spacing, it seems the iphone ( which I'm using presently ) does not allow a simply copy & paste of my better explained solutions to issues such as yours. If you click on my profile and search other Bosch shu43 machines you will get a better description and a more structured explaination. Anyway....Bosch has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. **B/S/H/ also issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the model & serial number, and it does apply to yours....based on just the model number, but check the serial number. It applies to serial numbers betweenFD7905 - FD8505 The issue was directly related to the heating circuit (specifically the heat relay on the control) Here`s the link if you want to see for yourself ** http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/ As I've alluded to the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). My first suggestion would be contacting Bosch re: the recall or calling in an authorized bosch service tech. if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself. It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay, inspect the solder joints and it will be obvious when it is spotted...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...or takes a long time as I mentioned...often a poor cleaning as a result as detergent MUST have a minimum of 145F water to be activated/disolve proper. You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater. **My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on their behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)** **Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.** As you alluded to though, sometimes one needs to call a tech. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine. I would strongly suggest you inquire re: the recall though. Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "FixYa" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness. Good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Either 3 things, the factory does a test and somebody did not dry out the unit. it would have a mold smell, or somewhere along the line, condensation got to the unit.....

or last but not least, if you bought the unit from a store. it might have been a return, so where was the unit shipped from the factory or store....

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

Plastic tabs holding circuit board cage prevents it from being removed from lid.


If you are CAREFUL you may be able to just pry each one with a small flat tipped screwdriver. If, by chance you break one or more, don't fret, you can buy plastic right angle corner pieces or cut sections from a strip of right angle plastic. Glue each one with Gorilla glue (tape each piece in place till dry), then apply the glue to the part that will be attached to the circuit board. Again tape the connections until dry. Voila...and you don't have to worry about damaging the circuit board or shorting it out! Have fun!

How do i fit smeg integrated smeg dishwasher


Not sure I understand the question. Are you asking how you fit your new dishwasher into the old dishwasher's hole, or are you asking how you get the actual measurements of the dishwasher because you're building a new set of cabinets and need to build it to fit?

I have no way to connect to the granite counter top. Can it be mounted to the side cabinets?


Need prefix for model number. Need complete model number. I believe that the numbers that you have given are stock numbers from your user manual. Kenmore can be several different manufacturers. Some brands have kits to mount unit from the sides using brackets at the top. If stainless steel tub, look for removable plastic caps on the right and left sides of unit. These holes would be used for installing bolts into cabinet. If plastic tub and no kits are available holes can be drilled into sides to secure unit to cabinet. As long as heads of bolts(screws) are flush to allow door closing, unit will not leak because of tub(door gasket.

I just pulled out my Kenmore built in dishwasher which was installed 4 years ago and see what looks like a blanket of sorts draped over the top and down the sides. Is this some kind of packing material...


The blanket you are referring to is not packaging material. This is an insulator blanket that not only keeps the underside of countertop and adjacent cabinets shielded from the heat of the dishwasher tub, but also provides a noise barrier. Without it, the dishwasher may genrate more noise, and you may feel more radiant heat given off when the dishwasher heats the water. This is supposed to remain in place and should not be removed.

Plastic is melted onto the heating element. is this a problem? what should i do?


I am assuming the dishwasher is not working.

You will need to check where the plastic has come from. The temperature has to be very high for the plastic to melt. This can happen if the dishwasher heater has been on with no water in the dishwasher. Normally the controller should not allow this. Also the thermostat should cut in to prevent the temperature from going high.

Most likely it is not plastic but a problem in the wash pump which is causing some residue to circulate in the water and deposit on heating element.

In any case, try to scrape off as much of the material as you can and then run the dishwasher with a Finish dishwasher cleaning kit. The instructions are on the kit label.

Hope this helps. Please rate the solution.

The seal of the dishwasher is broken and the spot welding on the stainless steel strip that holds the seal has pulled away from the tub.


use super glue to glue in place in spots cut away seal near the weld seams, then make sure the door closes ok then get 5 minute epoxy and glue the seal on where it comes off, it's a permanent fix for a old machine but it will work. so go ahead and replace the seal.

Kenmore Elite ultra wash dishwasher


When it is off, reach down around the base of the spray assy and run your fingers around the entire circular base where junk can get caught. I've found broken glass and plastic utensils. Why do some of us wash disposable utensils? Huh? You may find something like a piece of plastic, glass, or the like that is making the noise. Be careful not to cut yourself.

If this buzzying sound is not coming from the tub, and is actually below the tub and in front right side, it is most likely the electrical relay switch ( which can make that sound when it is straining or failing).
