Questions & Answers

Q:Our new Bosch washer (style with the towel bar) does not dry the dishes at all. Why not? Is there a dryer boost button? a longer cycle to select?
by|Aug 10, 2023
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Josh, thanks for your question. Your dishwasher is designed to dry using the PureDry® condensation drying system. This is an energy-efficient, closed-drying system that does not pull in outside air or use an exposed heating element. This process works by heating the dishes with hot water during the final rinse. The cooler stainless steel pulls moisture from the dishes. The inside of the unit will be wet at the end of the cycle, but the dishes should be dry. It's important to note that plastics don’t retain heat as well as other dishware materials and don’t dry as well. To improve drying results, we recommend turning on the Intensive Drying feature. For any product-related inquiries or support, please contact Bosch Customer Care at 800-944-2904 for real-time assistance.

    A:  You've got to use the rinse aid.

      Q:After cycle is done, my drain hose never empties and stays filled with water (air gap drainage). Washer tub is empty of water though. Is this normal for drain hose to not empty? Thanks.

      A:  Hi John, it is normal for water to remain in the sump and drain hose. This ensures seals stay lubricated, and prevents odors from backfilling into the unit. Thank you!

            Our Bosh DishWasher
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Been a blessing for us! Not having a dishwasher for about 1 year. Saving time and money. Where and tare on our hands and backs!!! Thank you!

              Love our new dish washer
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We are thrilled with our 3 rack appliance! It is so quiet ( if it were not for the light we would not know it was running!) It cleans everything beautifully! Ant the top rack is great not only for the more delicate items but it serves people like me that are kinda OCD and provides an orderly place for Every item !

                Bosch is the best.
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just purchased a new Bosch dishwasher. Having had a Bosch in my last home and never ever having any problems with it I could not wait to replace the builder supplied one in my new home. I also advised all 3 of my sons to buy a Bosch dishwasher when they moved into their own homes. They all bought one and love them too. Bosch make outstanding appliances.

                  So quiet!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My husband and I were shocked at how quiet the dishwasher was! We love it. The slim top drawer is perfect for baby bottle & sippy cup pieces, so no need for a special basket taking up space. After some research, I see that cleaning out the filter on this washer will be a whole lot easier compared to our last one as well. We are happy with the purchase.

                    I trust Bosch
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had a front dial 20+ year old Bosch dishwasher in our home and replaced it with a new model to get a quieter wash. The new dishwasher meets all our expectations: Bosch quality, top controls, quiet running, 3 racks, clean dishes. We hope this one lasts another 20 years!

                      My Bosch Dishwasher
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was very pleased with the quiet operation of the dishwasher that can barely be heard. The light aimed at the floor is also very helpful to know that the cycle is done. The third rack for flatware is an added feature that helps organize the load. No more bending and automatically sorts the cutlery ready to be put away. I've always wanted a Bosch dishwasher and I'm really happy I got one. I'm looking forward to many years of using this superior product.

                        Awesome Dishwasher!
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the third rack. Also like the way, the second rack is adjustable so I can put glasses or other dishes into it easily. I love the light on the bottom of the dishwasher so you know when it is on. I really like all the controls on the top inside of the door. It leaves a nice sleek look to your dishwasher. Easy to use the controls. Does a magnificent job. It is also soooo quiet. Gamtastic machine. Keep up the good wirk Bosch!

                          Bosch Dishwasher
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This has to be one of the finest dishwashers I have ever purchased you don't need to scrape your plates or rinse anything off and the dishwasher does the rest dishes come out sparkling clean and the drying unit in the dishwasher dries the dishes completely. I have never had a dishwasher that works so efficiently so quietly and does a better job than if I were to wash them by hand also cleans hard to clean pots and pans as well with stuck on food Grease cheese etc. I would highly recommend the Bosch brand dishwasher

                            Miraculous cleaning and clever design
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I couldn't believe how clean the dishes came out, even without any rinsing. I followed the recommendation and used the rinse aid and I think that helped. I removed the silverware basket from the bottom rack and instead am using the top rack for silverware in the slots (see photo). Then the bottom rack has a lot more room for dishes.
                              Bosch dishwasher
                              Just running the initial time the dishwasher is louder than my old Whirlpool unit. Very disappointed as my last Bosch was super quiet.
