How to Clean a Bosch Dishwasher That Is Leaving Detergent Residue on Glasses

Regular care and cleaning of your Bosch dishwasher is necessary to keep it working efficiently and producing clean, spot-free dishes. Detergent residue on your glasses can result if too much detergent is used or if the dishwasher is in need of a thorough cleaning. Food debris, mineral buildup and excess detergent can prevent dishes from rinsing properly. Clean your Bosch dishwasher monthly for best performance.

Step 1

Remove the dishwasher racks and inspect the bottom of the dishwasher and spray arms for any debris. Wipe out the bottom of the dishwasher with paper towels, if necessary.

Step 2

Pour 2 cups of white vinegar directly into the bottom of the empty Bosch dishwasher.

Step 3

Run the dishwasher on the hottest setting. Turn it off halfway through the wash cycle and allow it to sit for 20 minutes.

Step 4

Restart and allow the cycle to complete. Wipe out the dishwasher with paper towels.
