    Thanks so much for your help! It turned out to be a bent check valve covdering the drain. My husband removed the check valve and we are going without--working great! You are so right that we have to eliminate many things before we often find the problem.

My dishwasher would not wash/drain. Removed lower spray arm, plastic drain covers with metal screen. Under drain cover is a metal blade like piece that shreds the food as it drains. This piece sits on a coiled spring like part that locks into the motors stem. When I removed it, it was shaped like the number "3", instead of the normal shape of spring. I believe it reshaped(got out of shape) itself over time because the rpm's from the motor. The bottom part of the coil was "not" locked in to motors stem, so it didn't move, and it locked the motor stem. I reshaped the coil(replace it if you can), locked the top of coil to the blade, and the bottom back in to the recess hole to the motor. Put everything back together. Done!!! Hope this helps.

How do we remove the horrible smell in our Bosch dishwasher?


First check out your model to see if it has a built in garbage disposal, if so, make sure it is not mucked up.
Run hot water down your sink drain while running the sinks garbage disposal. Pour baking soda down your sink garbage disposal followed by white vinegar. Let it sit and foam. Run hot water down sink disposer while running. When finished:
Run empty dishwasher with no soap, let dishwasher fill with hot water to wash and then pour 1 cup of white vinegar into the bottom and resume wash. Make sure you take it through the dry cycle. When finished, open dishwasher and let it air for a couple of hours, longer if you live in humid area. Hope these steps do the trick.

How to Sanitize Your Dishwasher


Step 1 -
Get rid of any odor that may be coming from the plumbing pips your dishwasher shares with the sink. Pour a half of cup of baking soda down each sink drain. Pour cups of vinegar down each drain until all of the baking soda is washed away. After five minutes, run very, very hot water down each of the drains.

Step 2 -
Clean out your garbage disposal. Slice a lemon/lime and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your disposal with cold water running.

Step 3 -
Pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat the process is that does not clean up all of the build and film. You can use baking soda and bleach instead of vinegar - just sprinkle the baking soda in the bottom of the dishwasher tub, and pour bleach inside the tub as well.

Step 4 - Between washes, pour 1/4 cup of lemon juice into the dishwasher cup and run a short, but complete wash cycle. This will not only deodorize the dishwasher but will also help get rid of any metal build-up.

Clean a Dishwasher


How To Clean A Dishwasher
  1. Using a small brush (old toothbrushes work well) dipped in hot water and white viniger, go around the door of the dishwasher taking care to get into the grooves and crevices of the rubber seal. Most likely, you'll be surprised at the debris that has built up, especially at the bottom of the door and around the hinges on the side.
  2. Pull the bottom rack out and examine the drain area. Wipe around it to be sure there are no hard chunks that can plug the drain, cause damage to the pump or scratch dishes. You'd be surprised at what dishwasher repairmen find - bones, crab shells, chips of glass, and even small pieces of gravel!
  3. Using a clean wet sponge or dishrag, wipe the cleaning solution from the gasket and the door.
  4. Then place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle - except for the cup of vinegar, the dishwasher needs to be empty.
  5. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor.
  6. Baking soda is also effective at freshening and brightening your dishwasher. Just sprinkle a cupful around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short but complete cycle using the hottest water. Baking soda is also helpful in removing stains.

Our 3 week old Haier DW12-TFE2 Series Dishwasher has stopped working, the water remains inside from the prievious wash. We have found that by emptying the water manually that it will run a was cycle, but...


Kink in the line or possible obstruction in the discharge, very bad to leave stagment water in your dishwasher you can get contaminents that way, I suggest from experience and to be safe to use extra hot water and bleach a tablespoon or so, and flush thru there, also check the hoses make sure they are not blocked and thewre is an air gap, and the height of the discharge is proper. After flushing get a box of baking soda, and some distilled vinegar and under neath your sink you will see the discharge or p trap, either place that in there thru the sink drain or put in the dishwasher with no dishes of course and allow the vinegar and baking soda enough to just reach the drain turn off unit and let the vinegar bomb do its thing, this also works for your laundry drain too, always good to flush them every now and again, if you start getting water backing up in your tub, you need a pump of your septic tank, or a thaw, or if on city water and sewer, you have blockage, hope this helps, good luck

Dishwasher does not clean tea stains from teacups- we have tried a variety of soaps and have used sani-clean. Machine is only one month old- new fully integrated model.


Method #1

  • Wet a cloth then rub the inside of the mug with baking soda. If the stains are stubborn, soak overnight in hot water and baking soda.

Method #2

  • Soak the mug in bleach OR vinegar for several hours or overnight.

Method #3

  • Fill mug with boiling water, add two spoonfuls of dishwasher detergent then soak overnight.

Method #4

  • Try a paste of corn starch and vinegar, apply and let sit for a few minutes then scrub away.

Method #5

  • Drop two denture tablets in the mug, pour hot water over top then soak overnight.

After soaking mugs and removing the stains, rinse and wash very well before using-especially when using the bleach method.

We are getting a strong odor from our two compartment dishwasher, would welcome any suggestions


Get rid of any odor that may be coming from the plumbing pipes your dishwasher shares with the sink. Pour a half a cup of baking soda down each sink drain. Pour cups of vinegar down each drain until all the baking soda is washed away. After 5 minutes, run very, very hot water down each of the drains.


Clean out your garbage disposal. Slice a lemon and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your disposal with the cold water running. You can use just the lemon or an orange rind if you don't have a whole lemon.

Pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat the process if that does not help. You can use baking soda instead of vinegar - just sprinkle it in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Between washes, pour ¼ cup lemon juice into the dishwasher cup, and run a short but complete wash cycle. Is will not only deodorize the dishwasher, but will also help get rid of any metal build-up

Blocked kitchen drain


If you have a wet dry vac, remove all the water in the sink. Then take 1 full cup of baking soda and 2 cups of white vinegar. Pour the baking soda into the drain, then pour the vinegar on top. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, then flush with scolding hot water. If that doesnt work then do it again and let it sit for longer. Baking soda and vinegar make a acid that will eat through most anything that goes down drains.
