Re: i don't have the pressure from arm over

Boiterous? not sure what that means.
the upper arm may have suffered a mechanical disconnect.
check that it is connected.
otherwise, you have an obstruction.
clarify boiterous and i will provide further comment.
good luck

Remove the drain hose and check if you have any residual into it. After 11 years your appliance may need a thourought cleaning.

Bosch Exxcel Diswasher SGS43E08GB/43. Top spray bar won't spin. All arms, spray holes, ducts, filters, etc are clean and free from obstructions. Water comes out of the holes on the top bar but it won't...

try starting the washer, then opening to door and checking the water level in the bottom of the machine, as far as I know, there should be enough water there to disolve the tablet when it sits in the bottom. if not that much, bung in a few cupfulls and you should see the pressure dramatically increase!

The top arm of the diswasher is catching the dishes as it rotates

Hi- You may just have to reposition the plates, especially if you have tall ones. Spray arms are not adjustable but take a look and see if it looks attached securely, if so then unfortunately its a matter of loading so the arm can turn freely. Good luck.

I have a GE Profile SmartDispense PDWT4800PSS diswasher. My glasses always seem filmy. I have make sure that I am using the same diswasher (either enzyme or chlorine based) liquid as directed in the...

If your dishes or glassware appear with a white residue or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you?re using and adjusting your hot water heater?s water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water.

Next, you?ll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic).

If the film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature.

Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn?t anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps:

1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don?t use extra-hot settings such as ?Power Scrub,? and use the ?Energy Saver? dry cycle.

2) Adjust the detergent amount.

3) Don?t pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.

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. (For more information, see the article Water Softener Systems.

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.

Why does the diswasher not clean top rack of dirty dishes? It does not seem to be getting any water.

Check if the top sprinkler arm sprinkles any water. If it got some years the screw on which holds the arm might be worn out and that could, depending on the model, result in water only flowing straight down to the second arm. Or the sprinkler arm could be clogged, I would check it out anyhow.

Top arm doesn't spin

It is important to know that the upscale LG diswashers alternate between washing the top and bottom rack. So it is normal for some arm to not be turning at certain times.
Also, if this dishwasher is set to half load, bottom only, the top arm will never turn.
