Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS47E02 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean

However carefully I clean the filters, stack the contents, use high quality dishwasher tabs etc the machine leaves food debris all over the plates and inside the machine casing. Any stray rice grains or spinach causes particular problems. I can't work out how the food debris can actually pass through the filters and be pumped out. I am clearing the plates so thoroughly now that I might as well wash them by hand! I have never had this with other makes of dishwasher that I have had before. This was an expensive machine, it is only a few months old and I am thoroughly fed up with it. Like Chiggsy I clean the filter very carefully but food is often left on items; also, clean dry cups and glasses foam a bit when water is poured in as if a soapy film has been left. When I rinse carefully subsequent fillings are OK. Previous dishwashers have had a fine gauze filter fitted to the outside of the courser main filter. In my current model this fine gauze fits below the perforated "tray" in which the main filter fits and relies on compression (as the main filter is screwed down) to seal it top and bottom. as the main filter only screws down so far (bayonet fitting) I am not sure how well the fine one seals. Model is Exxcel (can't find more detailed reference)

    I had a similar problem. Don't use so much soap. Use a dry soap and fill a little less then the bottom line in the soap dispenser. That took care of that problem, but still I have stuff left on the plates.

    I would never buy another one of these dishwashers

    I have the same problem with my bosch & it too is very new. I often run it thru 2 cycles & even then end up doing a lot of inspecting & rewashing by hand. I have a bosch washing machine too & it doesn't clean clothes well! They are amazingly energy efficient & my guess is that it is because both appliances use so little water.

Let me start by saying your dishwasher only need the jet dry to be filled completely.let me tell you a trick because im a old bosch tech. fill unit wait 5 second add more rinse aid then almost close the door three times .up then down up then down.3times you will be able to add more jet dry because of dispenser can hold alot. once the air is gone then it is filled completely. this with turning the water on first b4 starting machine will help water temp.last add cascade dishwashing soap this will solve your problem.let me know how it went.

All the jets must be clean especially the drive jets at the ends of the wash arms, these drive the arms around thus allowing jets of water to reach every piece of crockery.

Does my Bosch SHU3032UC have a heat booster?


The dishwasher has a built in instantaneous water heater, so even if the water feeding the d/w is cold the machine will heat it the the temp required for the cycle you have choosen. Reducing the temp will not effect the wash quality at all, in fact having a lower temp or cold water filling the machine will make the drying cycle at the end of the program more effective.
Hope this helps, please leave feedback.

Bosch dishwasher leaving food stains


You may be experiencing this problem due to the soap you use or too much soap. Run a cycle without soap but put a cup of white vinegar in the machine. Then just use Cascade dishwashing packets. If your filters are clean and the pump is working that should take care of your problem. Do NOT use the inexpensive soaps on the market and especially don't use more than what is recommended. This leaves a film on your dishes and will cause it not to clean or rinse well. (I don't have any connection to Cascade - I just know it works very well. Costco brand packets also work well.)

Dishwasher never cleans, glasses gritty dirty -- Bosch terrible s


you obviously need to check and make sure that you've cleaned your filter system. it needs to be cleaned every couple of months. and also make sure that your washing fans, the ones that spray water, aren't clogged. they need to be washed out and de-clogged regularly as well... i had this same problem.. but it worked fine once i cleaned the system.

New Bosch dishwasher mold before cycle


The Bosch is a very good dishwasher and it is very airtight. I would suggest you NOT leave the dishes inside that long, and always use the Power Scrub Plus cycle if you have it. It will get the water as hot as possible so mold does not continue to grow in the plumbing and filters.

It is NOT the dishwasher unit causing the problem.

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean


Check the following to address this issue--


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

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.
