running it a few times didn't work, as the detergent is too thick to be
expelled from the dispenser. leaving the refill door open doesn't wash it
out either. turkey baster is helping, but now full of water and still
detergent in there.
the door is attached with star screws, and I don't ha. It is a Bosch
SHX46A, and I have not yet found a "repair" manual online.
While still under warranty, the service techs are less than enthusiastic
about being able to get to me to service the unit. <SIGH>
EVEN BETTER than all the other GREAT suggestions that you all gave me -
THANK YOU! Got a syringe for inject solutions into meat - all clean now!
YEAH - you guys rock!
OK found a star bit in another power drill set. got door off, but there
does not appear to be anyway to get the rinse aid reservoir out and it has
ALOT of detergent at the bottom. used HOT water and baster. any other
ideas - or any one know how to disassemble the soap/rinse aid assembly,
without ending up with springs and sprockets everywhere?
Taking it apart is probably best, but, . . . . .
At least now you can see what is going on. Is it possible to get a pipe
cleaner or small flexible brush in there? Stir it up , use the baster,
repeat a few times.
Or perhaps you can attach a piece of flexible vinyl tubing (available at any
hdwe store) to the turkey baster and suck out the liquid. Then fill with
clean water as a rinse and suck that out too.
Many are removable, but you may be able to remove the cap and flush
out the dispensor by squirting water into it with something like a
