Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
My bosh exxcel dishwasher is not getting things clean,the water is staying cold and not getting hot,can u help,oh the dishwasher is connected to the cold water
We had the same problem and you are not going to like the answer... we ended up having the service tech come out to fix it and this is what we learned. The problem is that saudering (sp?) used in the "brain" of the machine can not withstand the heat that it produces, so eventually the connections melt and come apart. This is a manufacturing problem and the tech said it should be a recall, but Bosch will not do so. He said it was a VERY common problem. It starts out that the water does not get hot enough anymore. Then you notice that your dishes are still wet when they get done. They then start being dirty still. Then you will notice that the cycles seem to go on forever, and finally it will just not stop. Our service tech (he is an authorized Bosch service tech) said that we should try to get Bosch to cover the repairs. It cost almost $300. We were 36 days out of warranty and they flat out refused! We had it fixed and paid the bill, but were not pleased. Feel that Bosch should stand behind their product and name better. It has been a year or so, and guess what? It is happening again. I will not pay for a repair this time. I will scrap the piece of junk and NOT BUY BOSCH again. Good luck with yours!

There is a heater in the base of the dishwasher . It could be this is faulty as you can still use the machine .
It does'nt matter that you have connected it to the cold water tap the machie should heat up the water it self.this is'nt a job you can do your self so you will have to call out an engineer sorry

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
