The Rinsing aid door keeps opening in my Bosch dishwaser

Hi,
The rinsing aid door in my Bosch SHU43C05UC keeps opening and I lose all the rinsing agent.
I close the door, load and start the cycle. When it's all done I go to take out the dishes , the little lid is open always.
Any solution? Does the lid needs replacing?

Thank you
H

    Hi:


    I have the same problem with mine, a SHE56C06UC.   I was wondering if it might have to do with the  the top rack as it has only started happening since we moved it the rack to higher position.  Seems to be an intermitent problem.   The rinse aid door appears to be OK, I have tried to pull it open, without touching the latch, and have been unable to do so.  Also the rinse aid indicator light went out about the same time this all started.   Hope we can find a solution.


    Thanks

I believe paddy55 is correct about the rack position affecting the rinse agent door. When the top rack is moved to the higher position, the rack hits the latch on the rinse agent door, causing it to pop open.

Move the rack back to the lower position and see if the door stays closed.

Rinse aid setting too high or has been spilled. Turn the rinse aid dial to a lower setting or wipe the spill.

dishwasher.
Egg yolk. Place an extra tablespoon of detergent in the dishwasher door for pre-rinsing.
Too much detergent. Use the recommended quantity of detergent.

Hi, I have an BOSH dishwasher SGV4313gb/17. It is about 8yrs old and has worked fine until last week when it did not complete its cycle. Have reset and it seems to complete cycle but I don't think it...


Are you using a rinse aid? if so and teh dishes are still not drying properly, try adjusting the setting for the rinse aid dispenser. Open the door of the dishwasher, open the flap where you pour in the rinse aid and look for the cirlce with the arrow and nunbers on it. If it is set low (1 or 2) try turning the arrow to a higher number. If that adjustment doesn't work, increase again and again until the dishes are dry.

Bosch Dishwasher will not dry dishes, washing is fine. Model SHU43C05UC / 17. About 4 years old. Cannot find the manual. Any help is appreciated.


Bosch dishwashers do not have built in heated dryers. Be sure your water is hot enough and the rinse aid dispenser is not empty. The Bosch should heat your water to a minimum temp and if it is not, this could be your problem.

What is the purpose of the lock and refill by the location where you put the soap


Hi,

That is the rinse aid dispenser.

Turn the knob to refill and pull it off. Pour rinse aid into the area below the cap you took off, once full put the cap back on and turn to lock.

Rinse aid is critical for proper drying and rinsing.

Not rinsing soap still on dishes


try washing the dish washer out with a good drain unblocker the system gets cloated up with grease, then use a dishwasher salt with the washes this will help to remove the suds ets, most dishwashes have a compartment to put either liquid or solid dishwash aid in try a different aid, also if you use tablet form i desolve it first in hot water in a small container
then place that into the dishwaser on the lower shelf, that helps

Soap in JetDry dispenser.


Unfortunately there is no easy way to completely get the detergent out of the rinse aid reservoir in one quick method, short of taking the inside panel off the door.

However, I would try a simple way to flush it out. With the door open almost al the way open, pour warm/hot water into the rinse aid fill hole and keep pouring until you start to get clear water coming out. The water will be flowing back out the fill hole you're pouring the water into and should just flow down the door panel into the dishwasher tub. Try to keep the door about 10-15 degrees up from all the way open to let the water get in the rinse aid reservoir.

Just pour the water in slowing so you don't agitate the mixture and you should be able to get it running clear in 5-10 minutes. It could take a gallon or so of warm/hot water to accomplish this, but it will flush it.

When you'r done, just put the dishwasher into a rinse cycle to pump out the water and soap, etc. You may have to run a full cycle afterwards to get rid of any excess detergent in the tub.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Dawn detergent in rinse aid dispensor


I did the same. I have run the washer several times but with the rinse aid cup open. Then flushed it by adding water and using a turkey baster to **** the water out. Then used a small amount of liquid fabric softner to reduce the suds. Then flushed it several more times with clear water. The turkey baster will fit into the cup better if you can remove the inside cup cover that dials the amount of dispensing (at least in my brand of dishwasher). I also forced paper towels into the cup opening several times to sop up as much liquid as possible until the indicater light for rinse aid showed empty.  This took some time but by the end of the day, the suds diminished.  Note: I no longer keep Dawn under the sink cabinet where the rinse aid is kept!
