You bought a Bosch dishwasher. Now you have to clean the filter as part of routine maintenance. Your old dishwasher probably had a grinder, so it was filterless.

It's simple really. This quick video will show you how to clean the filter to ensure proper performance.


Bosch dishwasher filter clean. Just have to pull out the bottom rack. If the wash arm is in your way, it can come out with no tools.

Spin the filter cap to the left, pull it up. The whole filter can go right inside the sink to wash it out.

When you're done, it falls back into place. Tighten up the filter cap and make sure it's secure. Place the spin arm back on. And then you can roll your bottom rack right back in.

This should be looked at at least once a week.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
