My Bosch diswasher runs for hours (about 3.75) and the water never gets hot enough so that almost everything is still dripping wet after the load is done. Every three washes, I have to totally clean the entire unit with bleach because it is moldy and slimy everywhere...from the spinning arms right down into the basket and drain. It's very unhealthy.
My husband thinks it's the heater unit not getting the water hot enough. But I don't see this part to purchase. Could it be the Thermistor that's bad?
ANSWER Hello Stephanie,
The heater for the unit will be part number 00480317 and can be tested for continuity. You will also want to make sure that the heater is getting power to it from the control board.
