Our dishwasher takes about 3-4 hours to run a cycle. My brother has the same model and it takes about an hour. Is there an adjustment that we can make to correct this? Thanks, Karla


make sure that your filter in the bottom is clean and if you are using the automatic wash cycle, it will wash until the water is clean. Sometimes it will take an hour, sometimes it will take close to 2 depending upon the level of dirty dishes in the dishwasher. And don't rinse! They work better on dirty dishes.

My Bosch dishwasher is only 2 yrs old and for the following two nights does not want to pump out the water. If I drain it, it sometimes starts the cycle and sometimes not?


If no warning lights show up, then it is a matter of finding if the outlet is blocked somewhere. I am assuming the fact you can drain it manually means the pump is ok. Perhaps some sensor which is covered in muck.

I would start by cleaning the filters at the base and then running the unit with a dishwasher cleaning kit (without dishes in it). Finish cleaning kit is quite good and the instructions are on the pack.

By the way these units normally have a 2 to 3 year warranty on some parts. I am assuming you have the proof of purchase so that you can call the Bosch support guys.

Have bosch she45 that stays wet inside after cycle completes. some of the dishes are wet also, how do I stop this


First of all, Bosch is my Favorite! Secondly, maybe your heated dry button is not on. Are you keeping the door closed until the dishes have had a chance to completely dry? This unit has a system that drys with the walls of the d/w as long as the door remains closed. I hope this helps you. :>)!

If you have a water softener, you should use about half the recommended amount of soap. Never use a wet or paste detergent. As mentioned before, this unit should be under warranty.

Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.

Although I previously posted with the same problem of a film on the dishes after cleaning, I did find a section in the owner's manual which solved my problem. Lift up the rinse aid cap on the inside door - the factory setting is on "4". The rinse aid works in conjunction with your local water, which has variations in it's hardness or softness. When your dishes are streaky, lower the rinse aid setting to 1 or 2. If your dishes are spotted, raise the rinse aid setting higher.
