Question about Bosch 24 in. SGV53E03 Built-In Dishwasher

1 Answer

My dishwasher has been running for 4 hours!

Help! Extemely long cycle and not washing properly, is this permanently on rinse? Tried using a Finish dishwasher cleaner, but the bottle has not even been emptied. Also the 'arrows' light is permanently on, I have mislaid the manual so not sure what this indicator light means. It is approx 2 years old.

The long cycle is caused by the heater not heating the water or not having enough water in it to heat. It is normally a slow fill valve in the unit. The best way to check is to start a cycle and let it fill to see how much water is in it. If you add a little water to it and it pumps better you will know you have a water supply problem.

Why do my glasses come out cloudy?


I understand you need a "rinse agent".
No, not a person, a chemical such a "Rinse Aid" which, when added to your dishwasher, will help your machine finish cleaning.
Likely you have either "hard" water or some unclean areas of the machine or pipes that are causing this.
God bless your efforts.

My top dishwasher drawer won't finish through the cycle. It runs fine on rinse only but not any of the wash cycles. It stops mid cycles, beeps like it has been paused, then tries to start again


Try to feel the temperature of water inside the dishwasher. If it is normal room temperature for the hot wash cycles then it is likely the heater is faulty.
It is not easy to replace unless you have good experience with repairing dishwashers.

My Whirlpool dishwasher washes but does not rinse or dry


Most likely the control panel is defective. Go to the repairclinic.com for further diagnostic help and parts.

Hobart LXIH stuck in Wash mode after running multiple loads. Shutting off breaker for several hours fixes problem until multiple loads have been run again and then it is once more stuck in Wash mode.


How long does it stay in the wash cycle? Indefinitely? Does the display continuously show "WASH"?. If it stays in the wash cycle indefinitely (i.e. continuously shows "WASH" for significantly beyond approx. 3 minutes), it's probably a control board malfunction. If it continues to wash after the "WASH" indicator goes out, it could be a shorted wash motor relay on the relay board or a fauly control board.

If the internal rinse water booster heater doesn't reach it's programmed setpoint temperature in time, the dishwasher will run an extended wash cycle to give the booster heater more time to finish heating the rinse water. If this is what's happening, the wash cycle would last approximately 3 minutes, then it would rinse regardless of whether the booster heater has finished heating or not.

The booster temperature thermistor may be bad, giving a false booster temperature reading, causing an extended wash cycle as described above. The booster heater elements or contactor may be bad, preventing the booster heater from heating and reaching proper temperature, also causing the same extended wash cycle to give the booster more time to heat.

Our Neff S5454x1/21 dishwasher has occasionally stopped/stuck


Looks like the heater unit has packed up.

I cannot seem to find the actual model you have anywhere on the internet. But I am assuming you connect the dishwasher to cold water inlet and it is meant to have a heater.

Are you in UK or Europe. Bosch also makes parts for the NEFF dishwasher but I am not able to find spare parts for your exact model.

Please post a comment.

Dishwasher leaves behind gritty residue i am not sure of what to try...


We have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, 10 years old, never any problems until 2 weeks ago, then we started noticing a gritty subtance on the dishes and glassware. We're on well service, psi 40-60. water hardness is 6 grains. small trace of sulphur, and we have a Mermaid sulphur system, then a complete house carbon filter, and finally a Culligan water softner. Checked everything, Water temp. at kitchen was 120, all cycles on dishwasher were operating. Called in repair service, he says something is breaking down in the dishwasher, best to buy a new one. That'll be $150.00. Thank you very much. Tried the white vinegar, no change. Next bought 2 bottles of Dishwaser Magic. Slight improvement. Next bought 1 bottle of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner. Bingo. The thing is like brand new. even the trays slide in/out much easier. None of the dishsoaps contain phosphate, which is what helps disolve the minerals in the water. I'm not sure what the gritty stuff is, maybe the buildup over time, and it just keeps getting redistributed through the wash and rinse cycles, and finally baked on in the dry cycle. According to a tech with many years repairing appliances, the majority of their calls are for dishwasher poor performance, all because they removed the one compound that's been cleaning our dishes for years, Phosphate. We've always used Cascade gel soap. best on the market today, Finish Quantum. We tried it and dishes look terrific. It's a small tablet that fits in the soap dispenser. All Mfg's. today recommend that you run a dishwasher cleaner once a year, Experienced tech recommends every 3 months maybe more if you're on hard water. Good luck.

Hi, I have a GE GSD3207P. With plugged spray arms


I don't know if they even have this product on the shelf anymore but this product is ideal for what your asking for: http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(t0se0nivtttsry45bq4xnf2w)/ProductDetails.aspx?SKU=19214 Too bad that this link does not offer it in single bottle qty. (12ea) The link is just so you can see the bottle and label.

What you need is a non foaming, non acidic, non corrosive and non flammable tub and tile cleaner.

Once you find that product.. start your machine let it fill completely and run for a moment then remove enough water to add the whole bottle of your cleaner. Start the machine for about 1 min, unlatch the door and let it soak for 1 hour. run it for another minute and soak another hour. Then check to see how everything looks. If it is clear then let the cycle finish. If not do the run / soak routine until the dishwasher finally pumps out normally. After you are done with the normal cycle put it thru a rinse and dry, then return it back to normal use.
