Bosch dishwasher not cleaning bottom rack properly

The dishes on the bottom rack are suddenly not getting clean. We have taken the bottom sprayer off and ran water through it and there doesn't seem to be a obstruction. What do we do next? We have the same problem. It's a different model, but the same issue where the bottom rack is not being cleaned properly; almost as if the bottom spinner is blocked, but we've taken it apart and there doesn't seem to be a problem. Any help is really appreciated.

SOURCE: kitchen aid dishwasher not cleaning dishes well.

sounds like you have a broken chopper. have you checked the chopper how far have you taken it apart? if the unit is put back together point all wash arms in the same direction turn the dishwasher on after it has started washing give it about 2-3 minutes open the door and see what wash arm is not moveing. if the upper wash arm is not moveing you need to check the chopper.

SOURCE: dishes not washing clean

check water level in machine
may be not filling enough and the wash pump is starved from water thus not pushing water to upper arm
drain water from machine dismantle and clean out air tube to pressure switch take off air tube at pressure switch and blow back into sump then pinch air tube with fingers to stop air from flowing back up tube then refit to p/s
run and see if that solves problem

SOURCE: JDB1100AWS not rinsing

if your filter assembly is clogged you are going to need to clean it. if it is really bad then it should be replaced. the part number is 99003292 and would probable cost about $30. the other thing is start your dishwasher on a rinse cycle and see if you have suds in the bottom do not put additional detergent in while checking this. if you have suds run vinegar in the dishwasher to help get rid of the suds as that can cause the same problem. Let me know if you need additional info

SOURCE: Clogged water dispenser in Bosch dishwasher

Hi, Logmanup (slight bouts with dyslexia, sorry)

By "spinning water dispensers", I assume you mean the spray arms, right? OK... if they are getting clogged with debris it would be nice to know what kind of debris. Pieces of broken glass? Plastic? Lime scale? Iron? And yes, when they get clogged they won't rotate, won't allow pressurized water through and therefore won't clean the dishes.

For the purpose of this solution, I'll assume that there are little white particles clogging up the jets on the spray arms. This indicates hard water and lime scale build up.

Other than completely disassembling the entire motor/pump assy. (you really don't want to go there), the best way to clear this out of the system is to use an over the counter chemical called Dishwasher Magic or something similar. If the lime scale build up is really bad (and it sounds like it is), use a couple of bottles to start with and follow up with a bottle per month thereafter.

As an aside... If I assumed correctly about the lime scale build up, that means that it's also affecting other appliances as well. Mainly, your hot water heater. If you haven't done it before, please read this to perform maintenance on it. And a product something like this for your washing machine.

I hope this was helpful. Let us know if this works or not. If not, please write back and we'll go a little deeper.

SOURCE: Upper rack sprayers not working on LG ldf7811 dish washer

Check the pump out. Even though the Hose is and tubes are clear it does not necessarily mean that the pump is not pumping water to the top sprayer. One way you can do this is take off the upper spray tube and lay it in a glass or bowl and turn on your machine for a minute or so to get the water flowing if it flows then I would take off the spray assembly itself and make sure that there is no blockage on the bearing race

My dishwasher doesn't clean the all the dishes, esp on top rack


Check the jet holes on the sprayer arms. The outside holes usually plug first from calcification and centrifugal force causing only the center areas to clean. Remove these arms and shake out all of the "little white rocks" and then run the machine empty with a de-calcifying cleaner.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, purchased in 2000, it is not cleaning the dishes on the top rack, just happened all the sudden.


You should check to make sure that the lower sprayer is extending to spray the bottom of the top rack and that water is being pumped up to the top sprayer. You will need to take the dishwaher out of the cabinet to test.

Pop the sprayers off and check for clogs. Otherwise, get a new one, this machine is way, way, way past its life expectancy.

Top rack whisperquiet dishwasher no water


http://www.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/8573754.pdf
I know this isnt the same model, they dont carry your manual as of yet. But it does have some suggestions to look at on page 17. I had the same problem and I looked really carefully and found my sprayer arm was blocked. I cleaned it out and havent had a problem with it again. I do check it regular now.

My whisper quiet dishwasher is not cleaning the top rack dishes


I'm having the same problem. Did some testing and found that the sprayer on the top rack is not even moving and hence not getting any water. Not sure what to do.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes


I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.
