I hate my new Bosch DW. It does NOT clean dishes
I bought a mid range Bosch (Integra 500, I think) at Sears about 6 months ago because my 10 year old Asko died. The reason I bought a Bosch was due to price being cheaper than a Miele by about $500 due to their spectacular sale, and I knew that I would replace the DW when I did my kitchen remodel. I had intended to move the DW to the rental house we own. The dishwasher is so bad that I would be ashamed to give it to my renter. I am really regretting that decision to save money now.
I have been trying to make this DW work but the bottom line is that the dishes are not clean. I am used to the way my Asko washed. They were clean. Just a good solid DW that did its job.
The current Bosch behaves as if the filter on the DW does not trap all the particles. There are bits of food particles still stuck on the dishes. It is very noticeable on the glasses. The glasses are now starting to etch also, which I did not notice before. We do not have hard water. We are on the city water.
We had the installation guy come and show us the high loop because I thought that may be the culprit. Not so. It is installed properly.
What am I doing wrong? Anything that can be done?
The installation guy told my DH that all new dishwashers are about like this because the motors are small on them and they don't have the pressure to wash the dishes properly. He also said we should rinse the dishes well. I don't think so. I think he is full of hogwash.
Luck would have it, we have run out of the time that we can just return the appliance... We will try to return it to Sears but....
In the meantime, help. Anything I can do?
Because of my DW fiasco, I am reminded that my mother refused to use the DW in a brand new home she bought in the 80s because it did not wash the dishes well. After a decade or two, they got a new DW and started to using it all the time. I see why my mother refused to wash the DW. I am about there.
