Bosch Dishwasher Troubleshooting

This article explains simple Bosch Dishwasher Troubleshooting procedures you can do in your home before you call for professional service. Bosch is number one manufacturer of the high-end dishwashers that give you the choice of flexibility, cycle options, and quiet operation. But even the best dishwashers are not perfect. When your Bosch dishwasher stops working, there are few steps you can do to troubleshoot and possible solve the problems.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning dishes:

    Make sure that the dishwasher is filling up with water. Also, check for clogged spray arms, drain filter and the circulation pump operations. One of the most common problems is the white residue on the dishes after the dishes being washed. This is due to the lack of phosphates in dishwasher detergents, and simply changing the detergent might solve this problem.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not draining:

    If your Bosch dishwasher experience the drain issue it will display E24 or E25 error. First thing to do is to check for the clogged air gap. The air gap provides back-flow prevention for an installed dishwasher. To clean it, simply remove the top of the air gap and clean the accumulated debris. If the problem persist, you might have an issue with the clogged drain hose or failed  drain pump. In that case you should look for Bosch Dishwasher Service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is making noise:

    The most common cause will be the accumulated water in the dishwasher base that activates the safety switch. The drain pump will run all the time and the program can not be switched off. The display will usually show errors such as E15 or E17.  If you don't see the obvious reason for the water leak in to the base, call for service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not dispensing soap:

    If your Bosch dishwasher is not spraying water the soap will not dissolve. Check for the clogged spray arms, drain filter and for the circulation pump operation. If your detergent dispenser will not open it's either due to faulty dispenser or the faulty heather circuit. In any case you should call for service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is overflowing:

    Your dishwasher might overfill with water even if it is not in use.  This is due to the faulty water inlet valve. The solenoid part of the valve fails to shut off and  the water keeps entering the dishwasher. The only way to stop the water filling up your dishwasher is to find the water supply shut off valve and to turn the water supply off. The shut off valve is usually under the kitchen main sink. To replace the valve you will need to call Bosch dishwasher professional service.
If you're not certain that you can safely perform these simple troubleshooting steps our advice is to call for Bosch Dishwasher Service.

Sub-Zero new brand of luxury dishwashers

Sub-Zero and Wolf announced new brand of luxury dishwashers

Sub-Zero and Wolf, the industry leaders in premium refrigeration, wine preservation and cooking equipment, announce their newest brand, Cove, setting a standard in luxury dishwashing. Engineered with the same commitment to quality, innovation and design flexibility as Sub-Zero and Wolf, Cove joins its kitchen counterparts in refrigeration and cooking. Five years in the making, the Cove dishwasher made its debut at the 2018 Architectural Digest show. Sub-Zero Wolf company worked hard to include everything a buyer might want in a super high-end dishwasher, such as: 1. Sturdy construction This made-in-Wisconsin machine has thick racks, coated with nylon to prevent scratching and breakage. 2. Cleaning ability With three spray arms and 43 jets, Cove aspires reach and remove food particles from all the dishes. 3. Flexible loading Green connectors indicate an adjustable part. Every tine is moveable, so even popular square-shaped dishes fit easily. The second rack has three height adjustments, and users can fine-tune them by adjusting each side separately. Of course, there's a third rack, though it's not deeper in the middle the way some brands make them now. But Cove lets users remove the silverware grids to admit really tall dishes. There's a silverware basket at the front of the bottom rack, so there will always be a place for knives, forks, and spoons. 4. Serious drying To get dishes really dry, Cove uses a hotter final rinse and a fan. Plus, the second rack, where two rows of glasses go, is angled to allow water to run off. 5. Quiet running Although the brand didn't provide a decibel measurement, it claims that the Cove offers near silent operation. Cove also has an "extra quiet" mode, which takes longer that its other cycles. 6. Connectivity Users can set up and start this dishwasher from an app.
