Bruce, we have the same unit and had the same problem. Try using a LOT less detergent. The repair tech claims that the manual says to only fill about 25% full. Also, we tried different detergents and found that the Finish (formerly Electrosol) works the best. Another not so great feature of this dishwasher is that it does not have a disposal unit so periodically clean out the drain pump area to remove any large chunks that the kids didn't feel like rinsing off.

Were there recalls on any of ghese models


The problem of residual water in front load washers is an on going problem. Some companies had put in a small drain hose in their units to alleviate the problem. Your washer is actually built by Whirlpool. There is no available auxiliary drain for these models. These are the suggested solutions to alleviate for your particular machine.

1. Leave the door open after wash completed. This will help to evaporate the residual water. If in an area where the door cannot be left fully open then place a towel over the top of the door to keep it from closing and that will help by keeping the door open a small amount.

2. To alleviate odor, pour one cup of bleach in the drum... DO NOT PUT ANY CLOTHES IN THE MACHINE! Put the washer through a wash cycle... some models had a clean cycle if your has this then use this cycle. Once this has completed remember to do a white load following this procedure to assure that if there is any bleach residual then it wont cause problems with colors.

3. Dry the door seal after each use... this will eliminate mold from developing on the door seal. If you see mold then use a bathroom cleanser for mold removal to clean the seal... DO NOT USE A SOLUTION OF VINEGAR... THIS COULD DRY OUT THE SEAL CAUSING IT TO CRACK THUS REQUIRING REPLACEMENT.

FYI: The Maytag Company went bankrupt sometime ago, the name Maytag wash purchased by Whirlpool and appears on products to secure the business of faithful Maytag users...

Bosch dishwasher dw44zp/16 dishes have soap residue and are not clean


Hi



White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.




Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

Dishes wont rince clean


Hello Dennis, welcome to Fixya. There are several factors which influence how your Bosch perform's. Saying that brings me to a point I have to ask a few questions. 1) How long have you had the unit...when did you buy it ? 2) do the dishes always appear dry when the cycle completes ? 3) How long does the unit take to complete a "normal" wash cycle ? 4) Do you have adequate hot water going to the unit ? Let me know as much as possible and I should be able to help. I will watch for your response. Macmarkus :)

Dishes are coming out with white residue after complete cycle. The filter has been cleaned. Repairman indicated that problem may be the motor and quoted $450 to replace. Any other ideas? Thanks


yes, it is your water and not the dishwasher. hard water leaves white residue when dried in a dishwasher. www.dishwasherfilter.com makes a prodcut for this problem. it filters the water entering your dishwasher and will leave your dishes looking crystal clear. it is very affordable(like 70 bucks) and has a money back guarantee. you will love it.
