Our Bosch over-priced junk dish"washer" (came with the house, not my choice) was doing okay-ish for a few years. Now it cleans horribly, and this change was rather sudden. There is a nasty white film on all the glasses, the plates feel nasty, and even the tub of the thing isn't clean. I have an obvious rectangle of crunchy white gookus where the big plastic plate is near the door. The inside of the thing is so filmy, I have a hard time refilling the rinse aid, as the little window isn't clear enough anymore to see well. I have a hard time getting the detergent door shut because the latch seems stiff with gookus. Once, I saw some trace of suds (but no water) in the bottom of the tub at the end of the cycle.
I have the rinse aid cranked up, and I'm still using a stash of pre-zero-phosphate Cascade Complete Gel (which I've used for years with no ill effects.) (Yeah I know the Samurai doesn't like gel/liquid; the folks that made our dishes said to use liquid/gel, and I can't convince the wife otherwise.)
Water seems to fill up and pump out just fine, the sink line it drains into does not back up, and there are no error codes.
I have started the process to finally have the recall work done, but I have no idea if this will help the problem.
