The rinse agent light is on and the water will not spray out

My one year old Bosch dishwasher stopped cleaning the dishes. The Agent light is on and I'm out of rinse agent. Is it possible the dishwasher will not work when the Agent light is on?

I have a 2 year old GE dishwasher that the rinse agent dispenser stays full & the product never comes out or works. My dishes come out clean, yet spotted.


If you are handy you could take the front panel aprt and see if the tube that connects to the selonoid to dispense at the proper time is plugged with crystallized chemical or it could be broke and just leaking out the door and into the bottom of the dishwasher.

Bosch dishwasher 3306 leaves film on dishes like its not rinsing well. I use a rinse agent.


The problem is actually hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product out that will solve this guaranteed. it filters the hard minerals out of your water before they enter the dishwasher leaving your dishes crystal clear. you also will not need a rinse agent when using the filter. it also is guaranteed or your money back. you will love it

I have a Bosch SHE4AM15UC diswasher. The rinse agent comes out at the gasget. The rinse agent light does not come on anymore windicating it needs more agent.


I would have to say the sensor may be fouled up and need to be cleaned if you are concerned about the light. If the rinse agent is coming out of the gasket I would look for small cracks around the dispenser, then the door panel may need to be replaced.

When we open dishwasher theres standing water in the drain area and it smells bad this is after washing aload dishs look clean but inside stinks


After you run a load of dishes put 1cup of CLR or vinegar (white) and run a quick wash.no dishes,after running dishes clean out spray arm and clean strainer,use a rinse agent like finish, and spray off dishes before loading.About 35yrs. ago I use to be a dishwasher as one of my first job's and if you did'nt spray the dishes and scrap them off before loading,the dishes would not come out clean,And after each shift the dish washer would be cleaned out.

The dishes do not rinse properly--despite rinse


run some calcium lime and scale remover throught the unit on an empty wash cycle just to get rid of any build up that may be there.
turn the rinse aid down to about half way.
also check the phosphours content of you washing agent.
there is a lot of factor involved with leaving film on the dishes, it could also be residual soap content that is sticking to your dishes.
reduce the amount of soap a little.does not matter if it is liquid or powder.
once every three months you need to run cleaner through the machine.
last thing but very important make sure the incoming water temp i no lowe rthan 120 degrees.

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get their new product. It filters the water and takes out the hard minerals that cause spots and clog dishwashers. It is very affordable and has a money back guarantee.
