What is the buildup inside my Bosch dishwasher?

By the way, we've used Dishwasher Magic on the dishwasher - will keep on using, but that didn't seem to fix the problem.

A:

Inappropriate amount of dishwasher detergent for the degree of water hardness or the amount of food soil. • The general recommendation is one teaspoon of detergent for each grain of water hardness (gpg), with a minimum of three teaspoons when water is soft. Refer to the following chart: Water Hardness Detergent Use Soft (0-3 grains) 3 tsp. Medium (4-9 grains) 4-9 tsp. Hard (10-13 grains) 10-12 tsp. Very Hard (14G grains) To determine water hardness: a. Use a Water Hardness Test Kit (Maytag Part No.038184). b. Contact the local water utility or state university extension service. • For normal or longer cycles, place the prescribed amount of detergent in each of the cups. • When choosing a light wash or shorter cycle, place the prescribed amount of detergent in the main wash cup only. 3. Improper loading. • All items should be loaded so they are separated and facing the center. • Large bowls or pans should not be placed over the center of the lower rack where they could block the wash action of the center spray tower. • Larger items should not be placed so that they shield smaller items from the wash action. • Bowls should not be nested together as water is then unable to reach all of the surfaces. • Spoons and other silverware should be loaded with some handles up and some down to prevent nesting. • Avoid loading items in a manner that would restrict the rotation of the spray arms. • Avoid loading large objects in a position that would block the detergent dispenser from opening. 4. Improper water fill. If the water level is low: • Check to be sure that there are not other hot water activities (such as laundering or showers) occurring at the same time the dishwasher is running. • Check that the dishwasher is level from front to back and side to side. • Check for an immobilized float. • Check for low water pressure. 5. Use of old or caked dishwasher detergent. • Detergent should be fresh and stored in a cool, dry place. • Detergents should NOT be stored under the kitchen sink. • Detergents should not be stored for extended periods of time prior to useUse of too much dishwasher detergent (especially liquids and gels) for individual water conditions.

Iron or manganese in the water supply can cause brown, red or black stains on dishes or the dishwasher interior. • To remove this type of discoloration on dishware and the dishwasher tub, use a rust remover such as RoVer* Rust Remover (Part No. 057961). Do Not use RoVer with metal items. To Use: a. Fill both detergent cups with RoVer. b. Set the controls and run a normal wash cycle. c. Follow with an additional rinse cycle. d. DO NOT use RoVer with dishwashing detergent.

A lime film or deposit may eventually build up on the dishwasher interior if there is a high calcium level in the water supply. • Try ONE of the following procedures to remove this type of deposit: a. Use a damp cloth and a mild scouring powder. b. Initiate the Rinse & Hold portion of a cycle (with an empty dishwasher). During the fill, open the door and add 1/2 cup white vinegar to the water. Allow the cycle to complete (without detergent). Follow with a Normal cycle with detergent. c. Fill both detergent cups with RoVer* Rust Remover (Part No. 057961). Set the controls to complete the Normal wash and rinse cycles. Follow with a shorter wash cycle with detergent. Do not use RoVer in the cycle with dishwasher detergent. Dishwasher Odor Causes: 1. Dishes washed too infrequently. • Run a Rinse & Hold cycle, if dishes are being held until there is a full load, to prevent food soils from causing an odor.

I can understand your concern over the issue that you are having with the bosh dishwasher. I placed an attachment down bellow. I believe it should give you plenty of information to fix the dishwasher.

A:

The 2H may or may not mean trouble with the heater circuit.

When you see this it means the last cycle ran over 2 hours long. The only reason the cycle usually runs that long is the delay in water heating. The rinse only cycle has no water heat and it still brings up a correct time of 9 minutes.

This might mean that you didn't run the hot water first before starting the cycle or it might mean the element is not working heating up the water.

First run a normal wash cycle and see if you notice any water heat going on. The wash and rinse get hot so you should notice if there is any water heat going on.

Check for the water heat first and then reply to me with what you find and we'll suggest the next step.

regarding the bosch d/w that displays the 2H code and just continues to run and run and run until I manually stop it, you responded about running the hot water first and the heating element not working. First off the heating element is fine and 2nd the hot water has been run before starting the cycles so now what? Could this be a bad control board? Please advise again. Thanks!

A:

Does the dishwasher clean the dishes and finish the cycle? The newer dishwashers monitor how dirty the water s and how hot the water is. They can add a cycle or extend a wash if the control deems it necessary. There is no exact time for a cycle on this dishwasher except for the Rinse only cycle which is always the same amount of time. As long as the dishwasher is finishing the cycle and the dishes are clean then most likely there is no problem. The 2H is just letting you know that the cycle ran for more than 2 hours. Another reason for this is the displays used only had 2 digits so any cycle longer than 99 could not be displayed. If you start rinsing the dishes really well and you run the hot water till its hot then the cycle times should get shorter. It may take 2 or 3 cycles of 1 1/2 hours to loose the 2H in the display. The control or heaters are usually at fault when the cycle doesn't finish and the dishwasher runs all night. If everything is clean and the dishes dry then most likely there is no problem.

Regarding the Bosch D/W with error code 2H. The dishwasher continues to run for several hours until I manually stop it. By that time the dishes are clean, but not dry, because it never finishes the cycle. If the heater element is bad, how difficult is it to replace? You stated in your earlier response, that the newer D/W monitor how dirty the water is. This D/W is approx. 13 years old. Just want to make sure, you don't think the control board. The reason I'm asking is, because one response I had said the 2H code refers to the control board being bad. Please advise. Thanks again.

A:

If the water is not being heated the dishwasher will run forever. The not heating problem can be the control, element, flow switch or thermostat. The element comes in a heater assembly so the choice is control or element assembly. This is a difficult problem to pin down and I would suggest a technician check and repair this problem. Bosch dishwashers are not very do-it-yourself friendly. To replace the element you would have to uninstall the dishwasher and remove the side panels and bottom piece to access the element. I know $129 dollars is an expensive service call but you will get more than your money's worth with this repair. To be clear if the dishwasher is heating the water but still not finishing the cycle then the most likely problem is the control. . If the water is not being heated then the problem can be the control or element assembly. Give me a reply if you wish to try a do-it-yourself. .

Regarding the Bosch Dishwasher with error code 2H. I would like to replace the heater element myself. Can you send me instructions on how to change it. Also, just to make sure I'm ordering the correct part, what is the part number for the heater. You also mentioned something about a flow switch and a thermostat. Where are these located and if they need to be replaced, what are the part numbers for these two parts. Is there a website I can go to, to get pictures of my dishwasher. Thanks for your help.

Everything you need will come as part of the heater assembly. The part number is 263869 and can be obtained from the SearspartsDirect web site. The instructions to access the heater are in the image below. Remember to turn the power off first. The 2nd image is the step by step to remove the tank. I'd suggest reading through the instructions first. You can reply with any other questions.
