There is a plastic clip that holds the spray arm to the inlet line. This clip is in the center and has to be sqeazed together to release the arm.

Both upper and lower spray arms become clogged by different objects like paper, plastic, stems from fruits, etc... These are particles that cannot br dissolved be the detergents.

SOURCE: The upper spray arm came off. How to I put it back on?

I realize this problem was in March of 2008 but if in the case someone else needs the solution. The Frigidaire website doesn't list this in there troubleshooting list either.

I had the same problem and let the upper spray arm off for a couple of months. My glasses were not getting cleaned as well so I was rewashing everything by hand. What's the point of that if I have a dishwasher.

On the inner roof of the dishwasher there is a round piece that you hook the upper spray arm to. Well it's a pain to try to just snap it on. Unscrew it by hand, get the little white plastic piece so the teeth are pointing out of the hole and snap on it on that way. One tooth at a time and it should go back on. It will be wobbly. Works like new I am so happy !

From now on be careful what you place on the top rack, if the item is too big it will cause it to snap off again. I know I will :)

Thank god I didn't get a repair man in here for something as minimal as that.

Simply the bearings on the main wash motor need to be replaced. Hardest part is to remove motor from unit. Assuming you have available tools including a medium sized bearing puller you could D.I.Y. bearings can be bought at your local auto spares shop.

SOURCE: Lower spray arm does not spin on my bosch dishwasher

Sounds like you may have put it together wrong. I would just take the arm back off and make sure that it all fits together right. A little tip for you too. Dishwashers will clog up all the time with water deposits and food gunk. There are all those expensive cleaners out on the market but the best and cheapest way to clean them is with white vinegar. Simply pour it into the dishwasher when it is empty and run it on the pots and pans setting on hot. Always make sure to pre heat your water too by running the sink till it starts steaming. This will make it easier for your dishwasher to heat the water. If you don't, then when you turn on the dishwasher it starts to fill with cold water and has to heat it on its own. Run the vinegar though through it at least once a month or so and it will extend the life of the dishwasher. Hope this helps. Just try taking that arm back off though and putting it back together making sure everything is fitting properly. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.

SOURCE: Lower spray arm does not spin on my bosch dishwasher

How to Check the Spray Arms Home > How To > Appliance > Dishwasher >Check 1x1.gif Caution: Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs.
The pump/motor assembly pumps water up through the spray arms. The force of the water cause the arms to spin and spray the water and detergent mixture into the dish and glass racks. Some dishwashers have just one spray arm at the bottom in the tub, others have a second spray arm under or over the glass rack. Some dishwashers also have a spray tower that rises up out of the lower spray arm to concentrate an additional blast of water.

To access the bottom spray arm, remove the bottom dish rack. Reach in and spin the spray arms. They should spin freely. Lift up the spray arm from the end. There should some play in the arm allowing you to wobble it up and down. Inspect the seams of the arms for splits. If water sprays out of a seam, the dishes will not receive an adequate spray for proper cleansing and the force of the water directed at the door may cause leakage.
The lower spray arm may also have a spray tower. If it does, pull up the center part of it as far as it will extend and let it drop. It should lift and drop smoothly. You can also unscrew the tower by hand to inspect the interior for foreign objects that might clog it.
Remove the upper glass rack as necessary to access the upper spray arm. Repeat the steps above for the lower spray arm. The upper arm may not have as much wobble as the lower arm.
The water source for upper spray arm on some dishwashers may be through a tube which mates with the spray arm when the rack is pushed all the way back. Make sure that the rack is properly aligned with the water supply tube.
If necessary, the spray arm can be removed for cleaning or replacement. Unscrew the spray tower (if any) by hand and remove the bolt (if any) in the center of the spray arm. Otherwise lift and rock the spray arm until it comes off. Keep any washers in the same order as they are removed. To clean, soak it in warm water and rinse with a vigorous spray.

The top spray arm of my Bosch SHE6AP05UC seems to have fallen off during a cycle and I cannot reattach it. It doesn't seem to snap or clip in like it looks.


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

If you align the spray arm to the section of the upper rack which it fastens to, as shown here...

macmarkus_206.jpg

Then place it against the holder and turn, it should grab the holder, unless something else has broken...but it should be that simple, i.e.

macmarkus_207.jpg

This is the official explanation from Bosch below...

Hopefully that will help you move forward and answer you question. Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.

Where can I order an upper spray arm for my bosch dishwasher


Hi -

I order all Bosch parts direct from Bosch. You wont get them much cheaper anywhere else. If the model number above is correct, the part number is 359976. This is the whole upper spray arm assembly which clips onto the upper basket. The arm and retaining nut are not sold separately.

belectric_150.jpg
(0614 is the position number in the parts list, not the part number)

http://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop/bosch/us/prodls.htm?Matnr=000000000000359976&ESHOPTYPE=A

$21.60 + shipping (in stock)

The link is for the Bosch USA eShop. If you are somewhere else, please let me know your location and I'll provide a different link. If you have a different from the one listed above, I can verify the part number for you, but this fits most Siemens/Bosch dishwashers, so it's likely to be the correct part..

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

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.

Bosch dishwasher - top row of dishes do not get clean


There is a screen that you can remove from the sump of the dishwasher to clean. Just twist it to the left and pull it out. I have some tips that you might want to check out if this does not resolve your problem.

Can you remove the upper spray arm (is yours under the upper rack?)-mine unscrews and then you have to wiggle it off. Run faucet water into the arm; sometimes little bits of crud get stuck in the holes that spray the water out, and this prevents a complete rinse. I just had to clear these holes myself due to same problem (I might have a different machine, though). You can do the same for the lower arm.

BOSCH DISHWASHER SHU43C06UC/17 NO WATER UPPER ARM


Ours is a SHU3300UC/06 model, basic model which we bought in 1999 so have had 9 years of trouble free service.
Recently we noticed that there was soap left in the soap dispenser after the machine had finished all the cycles. On further inspection we noticed that the upper level glasses, cups and bowels are not consistently clean and it appears that the upper washing arm is not working properly. At the back of the upper washer arm, there is a rectangular piece that slides over the two water outlet tubes projecting out of the back of the washer which supply H20 to the upper arm. On removing the upper arm and the rectangular connector, I noticed there is an inner place that I think is supposed to work like a washer that fits tightly over the 2 water outlet tubes in the protruding from the back of the washer. I noted that the upper opening in the washer/seal is broken so a proper seal is not established. This would cause insufficient water pressure getting to the upper arm and reduce its effectiveness. Now I'm trying to find the replacement part. It appears to be something than can easily be replaced.
