We have a Bosch SHX33A05UC dishwasher in our vacation condo. We rented it out for the past 2 months. I noticed the refill rinse aid light was on. When I opened the little door, I saw dried liquid automatic dishwasher detergent residue. I turned the rinse aid dial to 6 (highest amt) and kept pouring warm water in it. I then ran it a couple times and also added white vinegar to rinse aid dispenser. Should I do anything else? Thansk

Should be.  These dispensers have enough problems without the humans trying to kill them. Worst case scenario replace dispenser assy.  Relatively easy and inexpensive.  P/N 490467

Well, I am smelling vinegar at the end of the wash cycle, so hopefully it means it is working and not clogged!

OK. So I took apart door and removed dispenser. Was full of detergent. Rinsed it out well and reinstalled. For a few minutes, door thought it was latched. Took apart again and released latch. Only other issue i have is that several of the screws that hold stainless front panel on act like they are stripped. They keep turning and don't get tight. is there any way to fix that? Thanks.

A trick I use for stripped screws is to use drop of super glue, then run them in snug.   The glue will set & hold them tight.  If you need to back the screws out later does not take much force to break the bond.

you can also cut a sliver of metal from a screw hole repair kit, stick it in the hole and the screw will fit tight..  I use the stuff quite a bit.....$1.67

The detergent dispenser doesn't open until the wash cycle. The first fill and drain is a rinse cycle. The second fill should be the wash cycle.

Sorry. I meant was dishwasher had completed entire cycle. Refill light came on after I rinsed out dispenser and emptied it about 20 times. Then I refilled with rinseaid. All seems well right now. enough screws seem tight that door panel is snug. If anything loosens, I will use crazy glue trick. Where can you buy the screw hole repair metal? I have never seen that.

Harbor freight may still carry the hole repair kit. I reviewed it a while back in the Harbor freight topic in the tools forum. But the product link is no longer active.

I will definitely buy screw hole repair kit. I don't want panel loosening with repeated opening and closing of door. Ant tricks as to how to remove screw from stripped hole without taking off entire panel again? When trying to unscrew a screw in the middle of door, screw turns but does not back out. I have no way of putting tension on it to help it back out. Maybe if I put something in head of screw to allow it to "stick" to Torx bit so it will back out? Thanks.

The panel is only thin gauge Stainless steel ...If you look at the mounting holes on the door panel they are probably distorted.........they possibly do not have the 'thread / spiral'  shape to them....When I run across this problem, I use a pair of 'Channel-lock' type pliers and give each offending hole a squeeze,  not to much, just enough to give the thread its grip back.....................P.S....How many times have you take apart the door to keep repairing the same part?????.............Replacing the dispenser will stop the continued removing / reinstalling  the door panel, ( which will  only get  worse )  and the dispenser  will work as designed... :thumbsup: .............P.P.S.. slip a putty knife in between the frame and panel and gently pry and remove the screw at the same time.

Will try the putty knife trick. Just seems like I need a little force to allow screw to grip so I cam take it out. I have only removed panel once when I noticed the problem with soap residue in rinse aid filler. Then I removed and rinsed out dispenser. That is why I want to not remove the entire panel again as I fear more of the holes will strip. Out of the eight screw holes, probably 4 do not allow screws to become tight. Thanks.

Ran into plenty of stripped liner screws doing the reworks on the old Whirlpool d/w door switches.  Almost every single one had at least one stripped screw in the console.  Use the putty knife/channel lock maneuver as suggested by Brother ctg.  Works best when removing stripped screws from s/s door liners and restoring the screw holes on the frame.
