SOURCE: problems with my bosch dishwasher

there should be no salt getting into the wash cavity. if you are sure that it is leaving salty water on the items then either the salt cap is loose/damaged or the regeration system is faulty-this is an expensive fix.

SOURCE: eco light keeps flashing won't fill with water

Something with the program module , get a technician if worthwhile.
The flow dection (expensive can't be) because pre wash gets water supply. Might be loose wire or broken button. Any handy guy around that can cautious open then model behind the panel and chreck connections. I fixed mine last year with a dot of 2 component glue because of broken switch. Unluckily, the flow detector broke after 10 years (interconnected with automatic water stop

SOURCE: Filters clean, arms unblocked, salt and rinse-aid ...

Yes! you are already having the answer. check your water inlet flow. Clean the strainer at the machine water hose connecting end.

Check the drain filter also. Refer user guide for instructions on cleaning.

SOURCE: my bosch dishwasher has suddenly

You can experiment with different tablets/powders and check that the salt and rinse aid dispensers are correctly adjusted, but all dishwashers eventually cause glass to go cloudy and although it's a gradual process there's a point at which it suddenly seems to become noticeable. Any lead crystal glass will cloud very quickly indeed so must be handwashed if you want to avoid this. The cloudiness in glass is irreversible as it's caused by millions of microscopic cracks in the glass surface. Some crockery items are glazed with a process which can also turn cloudy over time in a dishwasher, white plates won't really show it but coloured ones do (especially blue and red). There are some tablets/powders which claim to have a glass protection additive, but this just slows down the process. The best way to slow the process is to wash at the lowest temperature you can.

How much salt goes in dish washer


You don't put salt in a dishwasher unless you want to ruin it.

2. You ONLY use a detergent specifically for dishwasher use as the cleaning agent and you 3/4 fill the soap dispenser in the washer (normally fitted into the door on the inside) with the dishwasher powder.

3. If there is a separate small compartment in your dish washer for a "rinse aid" solution to be used, you can use a rinse aid product designed for dishwasher use only. If there is no rinse aid compartment (this is also normally fitted to the inside of the door - if fitted on your machine) then you cannot use a rinse aid in your washer.

4. Don't use any other product in the dish washer.

All my clean dishes have a coating of salt


Check that you rinse aid and dish washing salt is full, it could be that you didn't pack the unit correctly and that one of the propellers got hooked on a dish or something, if not put it on full heat and put only a few items in and see what happens

Dishes are coming out streaked and not properly cleaned. I have added rinse aid, salt and even descaler.


De-scaler wont wash your dishes. The simplest cause of dishes coming out unclean is over-loading, bad stacking (spray arms blocked), or using too short a programme for heavily soiled dishes.

If it's just streaky (not food remnants), you may have the rinse-aid set too low. Open the flap where you add rinse-aid and you will see a know with an arrow shaped grip. There are 5 positions for the knob marked 1 to 5. Try a higher setting (1 is low) but don't go too high as this will cause other problems. If it's on 1, try 3 and if it's on 2 or 3, try 4 or 5. You may have to adjust this a couple of times until you get satisfactory results.

Howver, If you're referring to a white powdery residue on dishes and glasses, that's an entirely different answer . . .

Accidentally put normal dishwashing liquid in the rinse aid space


Hello,

The amount you have put in although not good is not too serious.You can try putting nothing in dispenser for a few washes and see how that goes.If you are using the 3 or 4 in one tablets you should not need to dose with rinse aid or salt as it is in the tablets.

Hope that helps.

Isn't cleaning dishes


Ensure that the arms below the baskets can move freely, dont overload the machine,
1 Have you put tablets into the door!
2 Rinse Aid in door!
3 Salt in bottom of machine if you live in a hard water area!
4 Do you know which cycle is which on the control panel you could just be rinseing everything instead of washing it!

Dishes aren't clean. i have run vingegar and CR through the cycle but dishes and glasses still have a film.


The most common cause of film left behind is a broken heating element.

The heating element is not only used during the dry cycle, but also to raise the water temp. during the main wash cycle to activate the dishwasher detergent. Fixing the heating element should "clear" this problem right up!

Bosch dishwasher


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.
