Bosch dishwasher, low water pressure, arms not turning

Hi,
I got a bosch sgs45e02gb/45 dishwasher. All was OK until yesterday, when everything remained dirty. Have done a bit of digging and wondered if anyone can help me out, cheers.

The water doesn't come through with enough pressure to turn the rotary arms. I stuck a screwdriver in the door sensor and managed to start it on a cycle with the door open to see what was going on. When the water is coming through the top arm it doesn't move, after about a minute it then changes to the bottom arm, after about a 20-30 seconds there is enough pressure to turn the arm but it takes about 20 seconds for a full turn. If I turn it off and back on again the cycle starts from the opposite arm to which it was when I turned it off but this time it turns with full pressure for a full half turn before previous symptoms return. It drains as it should.

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!

SOURCE: Bottom Dishwasher arm not turning

have you seen whether water is pouring out of the bottom supply tube with the lower arm removed? not 100% sure on this model but some units have a half load switch but that should turn off the top one. there may be a blockage in the lower water supply tubeways.

Make sure that drain hose is not kinked, and that the unit is draining properly. Odours are most commonly caused by the unit not draining properly and subsequently using the dirty water in the rinse cycles as well....not perfect washing results will be the tell-tale sign here....

In some models one can select either the top rotor or bottom. being a new unit possibly you have not seen options given. very seldom a timer related problem.

Sounds like the control module is out -- cost about $100 (I am on my third). I got a "lifetime" warranty when buying my second one. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself. You can call Bosch to confirm this (I did). It mounts inside the door. Mine is a BOSCH 5316.

The draining problem may mean a clogged drain hose -- you have to check it all the way back to either the main drain or the garbage disposal (if you have one). This may be what forced off the impeller wheel.

Why doesn't my Bosch SHU43 c06uc dishwasher have any cleaning force?


With your dishwasher empty, roll out the bottom rack. The feed line for the upper spray arm runs from a pump outlet directly behind the lower spray arm spindle. This tube runs up the back wall of the dishwasher and mates with the upper rack when it is pushed in.

This feed tube simply snaps into place in the bottom of the machine. It is a high pressure line that makes an immediade 90-degree bend towards the rear of the unit. They have a tendency to pop out. When and if it does pop out you get almost no water coming out of the upper arm and you lose effective pressure in the lower arm, too. The cure is to push that feed tube back down firmly into the port until you hear it snap into place. While you have the lowere rack out it is a good idea to clean the intake screen out and check for any debris in the intake well.

My Bosch SHX56BO6UC14 is not getting the dishes clean at all. It's making a grinding sound. It is pumping water & spraying water, but not getting anything clean. help?


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Dishes Don't clean


If the machine motor runs and the cycles all seem to be working.Check if the rotating arms are spinning when the machine is turned on.

If it isn't then the water pressure is too low and not spining the arms. You have a pump problem, likely the impeller is broken. I had the same issue with mine

Bosch SHU 8805 upper arm is getting no water.


replace the upper water arm conduit and wash arm hub as they leak under years of pressure and the o-rings leak water and then it can't hold pressure and supply the upper arm with full pressure water,also replace the center arm conduit if it has one as this will wear out too

Bosch dishwasher Water pump not stopping


Hi.

You need to replace the pressure switch located near to the pump, in the drain assembly.
The main function of the pressure switch is to turn off pump when there is no more water.
The pressure switch can be tested reading ohms on switch contacts and jumping the switch. This must be done by a technician.

You can get parts and a quote on repair calling Bosch at the number listed on the manual.

Regards.

Bosch Dishwasher with very little water pressure or power


It all stems back to your incomming water supply. Either the sieve is dirt or the valve is blocked with sedementation. Some valves are servicable and some are not,if your valve has screws then its revicable. (low water pressure restricts movement on arms.)

Bosch Dishwasher will not take in water


Either the pressure is too low, or turned off by accident. Otherwise it could be a faulty inlet valve
