Rust spots on Bosch STAINLESS dishwasher

I'm just under the one year warranty period. I've ONLY used stainless cleaner on this dishwasher. The door has small brown spots all over the door about 2/3 of the way down.

I have had my stainless steel garbage can for five years and it doesn't have a spot of rust anywhere.

However, my stainless stell toilet brush holder is beginning to rust after three years.

I guess Bosch uses a cheaper stainless than the company that made by toilet brush holder?

Nice.

    You have "ferritic" stainless. This simply means it has a higher ferric or (iron) content and less nickel.
    Use DeBruce Polish, we use DeBruce Polish on all of our stainless steel.
    DeBruce Polish will remove the rust and pacify the surface. DeBruce
    Polish also works on glass cook tops. We get DeBruce Polish at
    debrucepolish.com.

Rust spots appearing on the front doors of my Bosch refrigerator


Stainless steel does rust - or at least that is the theory.

There is in fact two types of stainless steel; the original categorised austenitic which is instantly recognised due to it being unable to attract a magnet due to the absence of iron. Austenitic is relatively expensive and difficult to work but adding iron in various quantities to the alloy produces a cheaper, lighter metal that looks good and is easier to work while still providing some resistance to corrosion. The more iron that is added to the ferritic type of stainless, the lighter, cheaper and easier it is to work but the corrosion resistance is substantially reduced.

Cars have been fitted with stainless steel exhaust systems of the ferritic type for many years and although they last a long time they soon show surface rust and sometimes will rust through.

I expect your fridge wipes are either acid or alkaline that are suitable only for austenitic and good grades of ferritic and Bosch have used a particularly poor grade of stainless. I expect fridge magnets stick very well...

Mild discolouration could be removed with a mild abrasive cleaner though that would tend to ruin the brushed finish. Clearly future cleaning should be carried out with a neutral ph cleaner and the surface protected with a hard wax polish.

I suggest you check the cleaning instructions in the Bosch instruction book. If you feel you have done nothing wrong you might be able to claim from your household insurer as accidental damage. It would be a good idea to inform the manufacturer of the cleaning wipes...

The door is getting rusty. I believed that stainless steal didn't rust. Is there a way I can remove the spots?


Normally these appliances use brushed steel which gives a stainless steel look.

Get a magnet and run it on the sheet. If it sticks then it definitely is not stainless steel.
However, with wear and tear stainless steel surface does break down causing rust to start.

Our Bosch stainless steel fridge is 2 or three years old. It has developed rust marks on the door. What can we do to correct this?


Fist call the company where you bought it from to see if there is a warrenty covering this, next you can use stainless steel whool pad like an sos pad to get it off with and getly rub it off then clean and dry and find some metal polish at an appliance shop to seal the stainless steel surface, if you need more help let me know.

How to clean stainless steel


You say your new oven...and DW have stains...I will assume (if that's OK) that you have a stainless steel oven...and are washing stainless steel in the DW...but you are having streaks and or white...spots or deposits...Sounds like hard water...you may try a localized..(just for the DW and kitchen sink area) filtration system...to reduce hardness of water...(is this well water)..if so you definitely need filtration...if you don't already have it.
Here are some issues and or cleaning techniques for stainless steel.

stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion and rust. Luckily, stainless steel responds well to cleaning, never wearing out from excessive cleaning, as long as certain rules are followed. 1. Water and a cloth.
Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option For cleaning stainless steel. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.
2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth.
For cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting. Towel dry to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals in water.
3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints.
Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner or household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints, a must if your pint-sized helpers leave their mark on your stainless steel appliances.
4. stainless steel Cleaner.
If you’ve had staining or scratching, or need to polish your stainless steel, a stainless steel cleaner may be a good option. Some of these cleaners and polishes can help minimize scratching and remove stains. They also can polish stainless steel surfaces nicely. Read the directions on the stainless steel cleaner and test in an inconspicuous spot. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and towel dry.

If this does not help please clarify...with specific model #'s and walk me through (step by step) what the specific problem is and how you address it....Thank you and I hope this helps.............
Good Luck...........The Fang.

Just so you know. Bosch has a 5 year warranty on any printed circuit board (excluding labor) so you pay only for labor charges. They have a 2 year warranty (again excluding labor) on the entire dishwasher. I am leaving a copy of my owners manuals warranty information I hope this helps.

Extended Limited Warranty: Bosch also provides these additional
limited warranties:
• 2 Year Limited Warranty: Bosch will repair or replace
any component that proves to be defective in materials or
workmanship (excludes labor charges).
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Electronics: Bosch will repair or
replace any Bosch microprocessor or printed circuit board if it
proves to be defective in materials or workmanship (excludes
labor charges).
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Dish Racks: Bosch will replace the
upper or lower dish rack (excluding rack components), if the rack
proves defective in materials or workmanship (excludes labor
charges).
• Lifetime Warranty against Stainless Steel Rust Through:
Bosch will replace your dishwasher with the same model or
a current model that is substantially equivalent or better in
functionality, if the inner liner should rust through (excludes
labor charges). Bosch will replace the stainless steel door if the
door should rust through (excludes labor charges).
The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of purchase, and
shall not be stalled, tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason
whatsoever.
Repair/Replace as Your Exclusive Remedy: During this warranty

Stainless steel is rusty/blotchy


Jenn Air makes great products, don't blame them. Your type of stainless steel is a consumer grade that has less nickel-chromium in the mix making it affordable to the consumer. The surface needs to be "pacified", DeBruce Polish will REMOVE THE RUST and PACIFY the surface. We get Debruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.
