Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS45E02 / SGS45E08 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher

Dishes and particularly glasses coming out cloudy

I have tried cleaning all the filters and clearing the jets on the washing arms, but our glassware still comes out with a chalky residue, leaving them with a coating of film. I've also tried changing dishwasher detergent and have tried gels, tablets and powders - nothing changes. Any ideas?

Yes. pour two cups of white vinegar into the empty machine. Run your hottest and longest cycle. Always turn on the hot water in the sink and let it run as hot as it will get before you start your machine.

This will clean your machine. Repeat this cleaning as often as necessary. J.

It depends if you are in a hard water area, ie, it could be limescale which only shows on glassware. The only solution to getting rid of limescale is by fitting a small electronic device on your cold water mains supply into the premises.
Its a simple process but has a magical outcome.
Have a look online for 'Electronic Water Softeners' there's lots on the market. They are simple in manufacture and design and you shouldn't spend more than £70 on one.

Lower arm repair on Dishwasher?


It will help if you can provide the model number of the kenmore dishwasher. I would try and take the wash arms out and clean them under running tap water. If the residue continues to appear then confirm if the problem is only with the bottom drawer or top drawer as well. Keep a couple of cups on the bottom shelf right side up and check the quality of water in these once dishwasher has drained at end of cycle. Also sometimes if the Rinse aid quantity is low it can lead to residue on glassware.

How did I get the film off my glassware? My glassware has a thick film that is very unappealing. I have to hand wash them. I use cascade detergent.


If you are not using a water softener use a rinse aid such as Jet Dry. This will help to eliminate scum on glassware. Use the solid form of Jet Dry. If you use a water softener you need to decrease the amount of detergent.
You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is a hard water deposit and more detergent is likely needed. If the cloudiness is not removed it is a permanent condition known as etching. In this situation, use less detergent and stop pre-washing. In actuality, dishwashing detergent needs a bit of soil to work on, otherwise it will tend to foam up.

Glasses and dishes are coming out with white residue and clumps on them after full normal wash and dry cycle


Hello.. Firstly check thet the spray arms are clean. make sure there arent any jets blockd. Make sure the spray arms turn freely. Before closing the door on a cycle spin the arms to ensure no item is stopping the turning action.
make sure all of the water pumps out of the machine. There should be only a small amount of water under the filter after use. Any blockages should be cleared. Check where the drain connects under the sink for a partial blockage down the spiggot.

So if all this is Ok then ensure there is rinse aid in the dispenser. do not use tablets onlyrinse aid in the dispenser provided. Use a small amount of powder in the dispenser. Too much powder can over saturate the solution doing the wash and leave too much cloudy residue.

I assume the water being used is not too hard. It can look clear in a glass but be too hard. Especially artesian water.

You might try an acid descaler to return the machine to an internally clean condiditn. By the way always use a hort cycle. Economy cycles dont do yhe jop over a long period. You need to have a hot 70 degree cycle regularly.
Good luck

Chalky residue left on dishes


hi,
The chalky residue would have formed due to the washing liquid or powder used. According to my experience, I am happy with "Amway -Dishwasher liquid".Please try it for washing your dishes. It leaves no residues and even cleans your dishwasher. On continuous usage, you may find the difference. Overall, it cleans your dishes as well as washer simultaneously. Though its a bit expensive, it is worth buying it.
please search in "ebay" for your country to get the product. Please rate my solution as helpful. Regards, Venu.

the problem is hard water. there is a product at www.dishwasherfilter.com that filters out these hard minerals that cause those spots and leaves your dishes crystal clear every time. it is very affordable and has a money back guarantee. you will love this product and your dishes again.

Dishwasher leaves dishes with white residue and walls are flakey


Sounds like a case of hard water and mineral deposits, try Jetdry, or even CLR from home depot and see if it will clean them off.

You could also get a water softener, that will stop all mineral deposits in your home.
