Question about Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

2 Answers

Cold water. Water has never been hot since installed.

My son, is the plumber who put the dishwasher in and we have verified that the water temperature is over 130 degrees going into the dishwasher. He also had the same problem with his Bosch. The water is so cool that the sanitation cycle bakes the soap on glassware leaving a cloudy fog on everything. We no longer use the dishwasher since we have to soak everything in white vinegar to clear the cloudy fog.

Thats a strange one, i my experiance dish washers only have 1 water input & its cold, the dishwasher then heats the water as it uses it, the first cycle is cold rinse to wash off excess food, if u r running hot to it, then the dishwaser senses the hot water & the heating element does not need to heat the water, therefore the hot going in only gets colder?

SOURCE: My dishes come out with cloudy film on them.

From Whirlpool:

*Film is due to either etching or silica film. Silica film is a milky, rainbow-colored deposit and etching is a cloudy film. Sometimes there is a water/chemical reaction with certain types of glassware.
o Silica film and etching are permanent and cannot be removed. Both can occur in any automatic dish washing machine and result from a water/chemical reaction with certain types of glassware. They are caused by some combination of:
+Soft or softened water.
+Alkaline washing solution.
+Insufficient rinsing.
+Dishwasher overloading.
+Heat of drying.
+Long/hot cycles.

To slow the down this process:

*Use a minimum amount of detergent but not less than 1 tablespoon per load.
*Use a liquid rinse aid.
*Under load the dishwasher to allow thorough rinsing.
*Do not use heated drying.
*Wash glasses by hand.

Do the following:

1. do you use a rinse agent
2. clean out the drain.
3. if you have a food disposal, run hot water through it and turn it on to clear it out before you turn on the dishwasher. The dishwasher drains into that sink. If you notice food or dirty water backing up into you sink when the dishwasher is draining, then the sink could have a minor clog and is backing up and being re-sprayed onto your dishes.
Source(s):
Use SANIVAC to clean lime deposits and extend the life of your dishwasher. If you have heavy water.

Run your dishwasher empty and pour in a cup of bleach and a cup of white vinegar to get the residue out.....run a regular cycle.......How hot is your hot water tank set on? The hotter the water the better a dishwasher washes and rinses, be careful it's not to hot as your shower and other sinks also will get this hot water......cut your dish soap down and make sure to use a Jet Rinse Aid. Again, be sure to use a liquid soap, and rinse agent, powders will cause a caustic reaction. Hope this helps. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

Think the element or thermastate has gone as it's not disolving the tablets can I fix it myself


One of the first things to check if the dishwasher detergent is not dissolving is the water temperature that is in the dishwasher. If the water temperature is too cold, it may not be able to dissolve the tablet effectively. . If it is below 130 degrees Fahrenheit the setting needs to be increased or contact a plumber for assistance.

Tip

Dishwasher Water Temperatures


No matter what detergent you use, the "pills", powder, or gels, they are meant to activate PROPERLY, key word PROPERLY, at a minimum of 120 degrees Fahrenheit in a dishwasher. I recommend ALWAYS using the "high temp wash, boost, etc" on ANY cycle in order to keep the water HOT! Always run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher! The unit is tied in to the hot water line under the kitchen sink and requires very little water to fill--by the time the hot water finally reaches the dishwasher, chances are it'll be running on cold or tepid water--the detergent won't dissolve or activate the way it's supposed to. Not only that, in between fills during the cycle, especially in winter, the water will cool down in the pipes too much. Normally, the water heating selection will maintain water temps in the 130-150 degree range! If someone has been sick in the house, turn on the SANI RINSE if your unit has it! This won't stop--but it'll help prevent cross contamination--people getting sick from the dishes--this setting normally kicks the water temp up to 190 degrees during the rinse cycle.

Why the hot water temperature couldn't reach the set temperature (130 degree) in Amtrol WHS80Z indirect water heater?


I have a couple of thoughts. You may have air in the boiler water circuit at the loop that feeds the tank. You'll have to find the vent in the loop to get it out. Second, the automatic valve that opens for hot water may not be opening fully. Have you felt both the boiler water lines that go in and out of the tank? If the water going in is hot and the line out is very cold you have very little boiler water going through the loop. Make sure the isolation valves on the loop are open. Is your boiler full of water? If the boiler loop lines are hot going in and coming out, the tank is full of rust or debris and no water can get to the fins on the internal tubing to pick up heat. If that's the case there is no repair and its time to get a new tank. Hope this helps good luck.

Hello

Ensure the Frigidaire dishwashing machine is fully connected to a power supply. Shut the dishwasher door firmly and select a wash cycle. Press "Start" to begin. Check that the "delay start" option was not selected.

  • 2 Verify that dishwashing detergent is placed in the dispenser and choose a longer washing cycle for heavily soiled items. Do not overload the dishwasher, as this may prevent proper cleaning.
  • 3 Check the household water pressure, which should be between 20 and 120 PSI (pounds per square inch). A water pressure gauge can be obtained at most home repair stores or hardware stores.
  • 4 Turn on the hot water at the sink closest to the dishwasher prior to starting the dishwasher to raise the water temperature inside the dishwasher. Check the hot water temperature, which should be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit for proper cleaning.
  • 5 Check the spray arms in the dishwasher and move dishes that may be blocking the water spray or preventing the spray arms from rotating properly.

    I've lost my manual, and am unsure what the heat


    You posted under water heater.
    Open following link for adjusting water heater temperature on typical gas and electric water heaters:
    State electric has ABC
    White Rodgers gas thermostat has ABC
    Honeywell gas valve has ABC
    Each is shown on following link:
    http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-adjust-temperature-on-water-heater.html

    60 degrees C is 140 degrees F.
    You can get burned pretty quick at 140 F.
    I suggest 125-130 F and see if that works
    First aid for burns is to apply cool water immediately.

    How do you set the thermostat above 120 degrees? My dishwasher requires 135 degrees. Thank you.


    you shouldn't have to set your heater to 135. dishwashers have a built in heating element for just this purpose.

    once you start going over 120 degrees on your water heater, you start creating scalding problems.
    130 degree water can cause second degree burns in 30 seconds
    140 degree water can cause second degree and even third degree burns in 6 seconds
    150 degree water can cause third degree burns in 2 seconds.

    be very careful !

    Low hot water pressure in old whirlpool washer forever to fill


    If you have verified that it takes longer than 120 seconds to fill with water then you need to replace your inlet valve. You might be able to get away with just cleaning the screen but you should probably replace it. pn 8531670.
    However it more likely you have a defective heater and the dishwasher is trying to obtain its optimum operating water temperature unsuccessfuly and thus stalling to heat water longer than it used to.

    My son accidentally put dishwashing soap (for dishwashers) in the area where the jetdry stuff goes? Can this be corrected?


    Hi ccarson004,

    I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

    Your question is: Your son accidentally put dishwashing soap (for dishwashers) in the area where the jetdry stuff goes? Can this be corrected?

    Yes, but I don't recomend this to the average homeowner because it requires taking the door apart. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman. You could just use the d/w, I don't think it will hurt anything and it will quickly flush itself out.

    Feel free contact me again!

    Grit in dishwasher


    Sounds like you have a low water fill problem or maybe a water temperature problem. The water should be at least 120 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit to start with. Gel soaps can cause a lot of problems with scum and leaving a white residue, mostly when there is not enough water in the dishwasher. After it fills there should be water almost up to the heating element. Also look for the water draining by itself.
