Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS47E02 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher
However carefully I clean the filters, stack the contents, use high quality dishwasher tabs etc the machine leaves food debris all over the plates and inside the machine casing. Any stray rice grains or spinach causes particular problems. I can't work out how the food debris can actually pass through the filters and be pumped out. I am clearing the plates so thoroughly now that I might as well wash them by hand! I have never had this with other makes of dishwasher that I have had before. This was an expensive machine, it is only a few months old and I am thoroughly fed up with it. Like Chiggsy I clean the filter very carefully but food is often left on items; also, clean dry cups and glasses foam a bit when water is poured in as if a soapy film has been left. When I rinse carefully subsequent fillings are OK. Previous dishwashers have had a fine gauze filter fitted to the outside of the courser main filter. In my current model this fine gauze fits below the perforated "tray" in which the main filter fits and relies on compression (as the main filter is screwed down) to seal it top and bottom. as the main filter only screws down so far (bayonet fitting) I am not sure how well the fine one seals. Model is Exxcel (can't find more detailed reference) The top rack cleans fine....the bottom rack doesn't...As odd as it seems the left front bottom doesn't clean well..I don't see a blockage and the arm spins freely...HELP!!
Check the following to address this issue--
1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.
2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).
3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.
4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.
5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.
6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

The fact that you only get the problem on the bottom basket shows the fault lies with the bottom spray arm first thing to do is put machine on with no dishes in it let it run for about 5 mins,then quickly pull door open,(it will stop) check to see which arm is still rotating it will probably be the top one, then line both arms up so they are at 12.0clock position shut the door and wait for a minute or two pull the door open agian and see if the bottom arm has moved from where you put it,if it hasnt it will almost certainly be blocked even a tiny bit of eggshell or rice will stop it turning,the very end holes are what drive the arm round even if all the others are clear it will not turn.
remove it and tap it and give it a shake you will hear debris inside of arm this needs to be washe out under hot water tap.

Let me start by saying your dishwasher only need the jet dry to be filled completely.let me tell you a trick because im a old bosch tech. fill unit wait 5 second add more rinse aid then almost close the door three times .up then down up then down.3times you will be able to add more jet dry because of dispenser can hold alot. once the air is gone then it is filled completely. this with turning the water on first b4 starting machine will help water temp.last add cascade dishwashing soap this will solve your problem.let me know how it went.
