Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU6802UC / SHU6806UC Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have a Kitchen Aid built in dishwasher. It has always cleaned the dishes beautifully except for the sandy gunk that it occasionally leaves on items, especially glasses and coffee cups. Recently, it has become worse. Have used Cascade for years, including the little pods. What can be causing this problem?

There is a filter at the bottom of the dishwasher where the dishwasher drains. This filter is probably plugged. You may also have a kink in the drainline. The dishwasher usually drains into either a drainpipe under the sink or into the disposal. If your disposal is full this will also cause the dishwasher to not drain properly.

Grit in clean glasses and on dishes


Mary do you have a water softener? If so, only use 1 tablespoon of dry dishwashing detergent per wash. Don't use tablets or liquid soaps. Too much soap will wear down the items you wash, leave streaks and pock your dishes. That might be what the sandy grit is. Also, to get rid of the grit inside of your washer you can buy a special dishwasher cleaner at almost any hardware store. Always try to use a rinse-aid. Make sure your drain filters are clean. Hope this helps. Jewels

My kitchen aid dishwasher has an off odor and is leaving a residue on the dishes. what should I do?


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

Sandy grit left on dishes.


I was having a different issue with the same model but I think my issues solution might help yours. My dishwasher was not draining properly. It was the air gap that sits on top of the counter by the sink. It was clogged. We removed it and cleaned it out. Maybe if your air gap is slightly clogged as well it is not allowing the dirty water to flow out properly leaving you with gritty dishes. Hope this helps.

My dishwasher is leaving a white thick film on my dishes.


Check your inlet water quality. If hardness is noticed add salt as per the directions of the manufacturer. Refer user manual.

Check the rinse aid compartment and fill it with rinse aid as recommended by the manufacturer.

White film left on dishes, does not seem to be cleaning thoroughly


could be several things... usually it just needs rinse aid.. all dishwashers spot or leave dishes cloudy without rinse aid.. or your water is just to hard, in that case you will need to soften it with salt, check the owners manual to see how that is done.. also run the dishwasher right after you put the dishes in, if you leave them for a day to wait to fill it up then the dried food gets like cement.

How do I clean the KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS? I can't wash dishes until it's cleaned.


Use 1-2 packets lemon kool-aid (unsweeted of course) and run it with no dishes in it.

The citric acid will dissovle most gunk

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.
