underwhelmed by Bosch DW - cross post

7 years ago

I'm posting this in the appliance forum, too.

I read all the reviews, both on-line and from people I knew, and settled on a Bosch as the brand to get when we decided to replace our 10 yr old Kenmore (rebadged KA) during the remodel. It was the *best* DW we've ever owned but it had begun to not clean as well. Yes, we could have had it repaired but we opted to replace it to get a panel ready model.

Well, it's not living up to its rep. It's leaving bits of dried on crud on the dishes and especially on the glassware. It didn't do this at first but it started doing this within a few weeks and it seems to be getting worse. I clean out the filter before I run it *every* *single* *time*. And I still have to rewash items that are supposed to be clean. I'm at a loss as to why this expensive machine is right up there with the worst DW we've ever owned.

It doesn't have anything to do with water hardness. We have very soft water per the city report. I'm using the same kind of detergent that came with the machine.

Anyone got a clue what could be going on or what else I should check?
