Bosch SGS4012GB/14 Dishwasher - top spray arm not spinning

I have a Bosch SGS4012GB/14 dishwasher which doesn't seem to be washing properly.
I have checked the filter, checked the outlet pipe drains stuff away, cleaned out the rotating arms... I have opened the door during the cycle a few times to see if the arms are spinning and spraying and they seem not to spin, but do spray water. It seems the water pressure isn't strong enough to spin the arms.
The top arm tilts a bit too...Can anyone advise what I can check next or if I can replace something?

    My solution that fixed it (since no-one commented...) was simply to risk buying a new upper spray arm.

    Worked a treat! Never washed so well in its life.

    I have the exact same problem on my Bosch SHU9925. I was wondering if the previous customer took the other person's advice and bought a new spray arm. Did it solve your problem? It's a lot cheaper than a new pump.

SOURCE: Washing machine will not start wash - just beeps - key on display

Press and hold the Rinse Plus button and wait for the washer to start emitting a tone.

Whilst you are pressing and holding the Rinse Plus button, the tone increases in volume from low to high and then it briefly goes silent, before it starts over agian.

If you release the Rinse Plus button immediately the tone goes silent, then this will turn off the beeping.

If you don't release the Rinse Plus button in time, just continue to press and hold the button and the tone will cycle around again from low to high to silent.

Hope that helps.

Check the bottom of the dishwasher, there is a screen to filter food out, that may be clogged, also check the drain hose for any clogs or restrictions.

How to repair or fix a Dishwasher if it doesn't wash well


A common cause of poor washing results is improper loading—dishes that block or impede the spray arm(s) or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with good washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. A good first step is vary the amount of dishwasher detergent you're using and try switching brands.

Other possibilities: Your home’s water pressure may be too low, your water may be too hard, or the water temperature may not be hot enough.
In order for your dishwasher to fill to the appropriate level, water pressure should be from 20–120 pounds per square inch. If you suspect that your water pressure may be low, turn off all faucets or other users of water (such as washing machines and sprinklers) and then put a half-gallon jug under the kitchen faucet. Turn on the hot water full-blast. If the jug doesn’t fill within 14 seconds, your water pressure may be too low for proper dishwasher operation. Call your city water utility to discuss your options, or avoid drawing water elsewhere in the house or yard during dishwasher cycles.
The right amount of detergent to use depends on how large your load of dishes is and how hard your water is. Hardness is measured in grains of minerals—the more grains per gallon you have, the more detergent you’ll need. If your water has 12 grains or more of hardness, fill both dishwasher soap cups completely with detergent. If that doesn’t work, consider installing a water softener.
To check water temperature, hold a meat thermometer under the hot water faucet for two minutes; if it doesn’t register a minimum of 140 degrees F., turn up the temperature dial on your hot water heater. (However, if you have a newer dishwasher that heats the water internally, it isn’t necessary to turn up your hot water heater.)
If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but suddenly your dishes aren’t clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles, listen to the spray arm(s) spinning inside during the wash cycle. If spinning poorly, wait for the machine to cool down, remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hubcap(s), lifting the arm(s) off, and then cleaning out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire.

Dishes on upper rack are not being cleaned. Seems like upper sprayer is not working properly.


Hi

Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are oopen. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.
under the screen and youl'll need a Torx driver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.
Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm (part that spins around). Remove each of the spray arms and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

Hope this helps

Only washing top rack


After observing the water just gushing out when the spray arm was removed, we determined there was still a bunch more calcification/soap in the ends of the spray arm. (We have very hard water in our area). Unfortunately, you cannot open up the spray arms to clean them out, so it took about 30 minutes of pounding and manipulating to get all the gunk out. Now my dishes are clean again. Hallelujeh! And the water cleaning the dishes is cleaner, as well.

Top arm not spinning


only the top rack isnt getting clean?
there is a little plastic circle in the middle of the bottom of the upper spray arm. turn it counter clock wise to pull the upper spray arm from the upper rack. make sure that isnt clogged and the spray holes are not clogged. otherwise....

the piece that the bottem spray arm plugs into and runs along the back wall of the tank to the top is called a feed tube. pull the bottom spray arm out. now you can see the part of the feed tube that feeds the upper spray arm water. does it pop out freely and easily? if so then you need a new feed tube, if not then its most likely your not achieving the right water level or your impeller connected to your circulation pump(motor) is clogged not supplying enough water pressure to travel up the feed tube to spin the upper spray arm.
