Hello & Welcome to FixYa

As the water did not drain completely and leaved residue on the dishes then check the drain hose & drain pump filter for any clogs/obstructions, if you have already cleaned these parts after taking out the bottom of the unit and the unit will not work then replacing the float switch assembly which is located at the bottom inside of the unit is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi

The issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use your voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If your switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Please read it completely....if you dont have voltmeter then run the dishwasher with vinegar at its hottest temperature setting....run a full cycle and then take out the bottom front panel and clean the drain pump assembly if the issue is not solved then you will have to replace the float switch

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.

My Bosch dishwasher is streaking the glassware, inside of the dishwasher and plastic utensils for the past couple of months. What is wrong?


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Bosch dishwasher cleans but will not drain.


Remove the drain hose where it attaches to the disposal. This area often clogs and will prevent any d/w from draining.

Hi shanandpop

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Your Bosch dishwasher is 6 months old and is starting to leave food on items in the top drawer. It also sometimes leaves a grainy residual in the cups and glasses. You have put through a dishwasher cleaning solution, but find it isn't doing anything to resolve the problem?

You're still under warranty. The best advice is to use it. If it is not fixed the first time out, demand a new one from where you bought it. Sometimes they drag this out till the warranty runs out, then where will we be.

Bosch dishwasher leaving residue


You either need a water valve, if the dishwasher isn't filling with enough water, or you need to run a dishwasher cleaner through it.
