Question about Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher
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?

Indicates that the heating element in the unit is non operational ( not connected or burnt out )

*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.
+Heat of drying.
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.
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.
