Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Bosch SHX68M05UC/46 I purchased subject dishwasher DEC 2007 expecting a wonderful experience and it has been a nightmare. My newly washed dishes smell like garbage. Opening my dishwasher is the most unpleasant experience and makes me question the safey of using the dishwasher. I have had the warranty plumber (Betty's Maytag, Springfield, VA) out and they alleged no problem because the drainage was working. I had two other plumbers check the problem. While they recognized there was a problem, they could find no plumbing issue and speculated it may be the motor or some other issue with the dishwasher. I had Roto Rooter come out and clean my drains also. I have not pursued this in the manner I should because I have been working in Iraq and not home. However, I am at the point now of raising the issue higher and/or throwing the Bosch out along with my plus $1600.00 and getting another dishwasher. If you are thinking of buying a Bosch dishwasher, I would give it a lot of thought because of the drainage problem and health problem with washing dishes in the environment plus lack of customer service. Please advise if you have an experience or recommendations for my Bosch dishwasher other than throwing it off the deck. Thank you!

It sounds like you've had many eyes on this already, but it sounds like the drain hose isn't looped behind the unit. You want it looped (or arched to 19" or taller from the floor) behind the unit to prevent siphoning of dirty water from the sink drain or disposal. An Air Gap will also solve the siphoning problem but is prone to clogging, as I found out the very hard way. I have written a guide to help. It is here.

My dishwasher works good but it really smells


Run a regular wash with no dishes in the machine, with normal dishwasher soap added with ½ cup of bleach, that should do the trick.

When we open dishwasher theres standing water in the drain area and it smells bad this is after washing aload dishs look clean but inside stinks


After you run a load of dishes put 1cup of CLR or vinegar (white) and run a quick wash.no dishes,after running dishes clean out spray arm and clean strainer,use a rinse agent like finish, and spray off dishes before loading.About 35yrs. ago I use to be a dishwasher as one of my first job's and if you did'nt spray the dishes and scrap them off before loading,the dishes would not come out clean,And after each shift the dish washer would be cleaned out.

100% fact. But people would not agree. Some times the washing machine left un attended, it will become a walking machine during spin cycle.

Contact the service provider and get appliance inspected. It could any thing!

Mold grows on dishes in bosch dishwasher


Put a bowl filled with 2 cups of clorox on the lower rack and run a wash cycle (nothing else in the machine) this will kill the mold spores in the machine, and clear the smell.

Bad smell


Try running washer empty with soap or tablet in the regular cup and baking soda in the secondary cup. After cycle is complete and somewhat dry inside leave slightly open to allow air circulation overnight. This should help.

Dishwasher smells like pond scum


I have the SAME problem with our dishwasher. It's disgusting. Between the fishy glasses and the garlicky ice cubes (NO, we don't have garlic in our refrigerator or freezer -- purchased ice doesn't smell), I'm embarrassed to pour our guests a glass of ice water!

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.
