decrete, you want to get down to the chopper and screen. If the screen is plugged up with gunk there won't be enough pressure to reach the top spray arms. Check out the posted pics. Remove the lower spray arm. Rotate the rear feed arm to the right until it unsnaps from the tube going up the back. See the 4 torq screws holding the filter on. Remove them. Lift the filter up. Now you will see the chopper inlet cover. 1 torq screw holding it in. Lift it up and there's the chopper and screen. Catriver..post back

try http://www.bshappliancecare.com/Bosch/boschspares.html

it's pretty flaky and I didn't work when I tried to download a manual for my SRS43A02GB/08, but the parts-lists do.

If you go to the 'Launch the spare parts eShop' and enter your model number (you only quote it partially above, so you then need to select the particular model), you can see the exploded parts diagram - click right-hand icon 'print all pages' to get a pdf of all the exploded diagrams. You can order from here too and they seem a lot cheaper than alternatives, but I haven't actually bought anything yet.

SOURCE: lower spray arm will not spray water

I just had a simliar problem with all spray arms and solved the problem by cleaning the food screen. Basically, it takes water pressure to make the spray arms rotate. Before assuming there is a failed part, make sure the spray arms are getting max water pressure by checking the food screen. Here's how I serviced my Kenmore dishwasher.

The lower arm assembley is removable by twisting the center plastic piece. It's not very tight and should come off easily by twist with a pliers (but gently). Then remove the tubing to the upper arms (Two screws). Then remove the bottom drain cover (4 star screws).

Under the drain cover are two more things to remove. One, a plastic plate over the bottom of the water drain (1 screw). Two cover to the food screen (1 screw). After removng the screw to the cover of the food screen, it will be a little difficult to remove that cover. The side opposite the screw requires releasing a catch with a screw driver. It's hard tell which way it releases, just keep trying different ways until it pops up. The cover may stick a little beacuse of the food stuck in the screen.

Once you have access to the screen, the screen can be removed by pulling on the center shaft (spring loaded) with a needle nose pliers and lifting the screen straight up. (Note: there maybe a blade next to the screen used to braek up the food.)

After removing the screen, clean it (I used a plastic scrub brush).

Reassembly is performaing these steps in the reverse order.

Hope this helps!

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.

Why does the lower spray arm keep coming loose on a Kenmore 587.15189402


Is this one of those drawer-style dishwashers, or a regular DW? I can't seem to find that model number in my search. If it's a regular (door-opens-downward) DW, then you probably don't have the lower wash arm attached properly. On some DW's you turn the hold-down "screw" in the reverse direction to tighten it. If it's a new Kenmore Elite DW, then you turn the lower square or geared section 1/8th turn clockwise to lock it. Of course, you may have a damaged or stripped plastic part that just won't stay....

Hi

If the top rack of the dishwasher doesn't get clean, check your appliance to see if you can fix the problem.
First check the spray Arms to make sure the holes in the spray arms are free and clear of debris. Your dishwasher should have several spray arms, including one at the bottom of the tub, one under the top rack, and possibly a third spray arm on the top of the tub. Sometimes food and mineral deposits can block holes in the spray arms, preventing water from spraying effectively. If this occurs, warm some white vinegar and pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the holes with the vinegar and dislodge debris with a toothpick or large safety pin.

Then check to see if your dishwasher has clogged filters. Filters generally cover the drain valve area to catch debris as the water drains from the dishwasher. Many dishwashers have maintenance-free filters, but your dishwasher may have filters that need cleaning. Read your owner's manual before you perform any filter maintenance to avoid damaging your dishwasher.

Check your water temperature to make sure it's hot enough. Water that is under 120 degrees Fahrenheit may not be hot enough to clean dishes effectively. Turn your kitchen hot water tap on and wait until the water warms up completely. Fill a cup and measure the water temperature with a kitchen thermometer. If the water is less than 120 degrees Fahrenheit, turn your water heater up to 120 degrees.

Load the top rack properly. Place cups and bowls upside down in the rack and don't nest dishes because this can prevent water from reaching dishes. Don't overload the top rack. Instead, position each item so the dirty areas of the dishes will receive full contact with water spraying up from the main spray arm located beneath the top rack. Prevent items from hanging below the top rack, which could prevent the spray arm from rotating.

The water is not getting to the top wands


you need to replace the water conduit that runs from the base pump area up the back wall to the center and top wash arms,the "water horn" that feeds the center arm when the drawer is pushed in gets leak by and this in turn lowers water pressure to the center and top wash arms,replace the whole conduit as its not that expensive,and while doing this clean out and blockages from food in the spray arm holes too

Not sure if upper spray arm is working. Dishes on top shelf remain dirty. Lower arm works early in cycle but not top. Are they supposed to be working at the same time?


Something is blocking the extender from getting to top spayer arm. Push all drawers in and look to see if extender can be manually raised to arm. Slug buildup can effect a dishwasher also. clean with bleach and water. Pour bleach in the washer and run thru one cycle.

Hi, Make sure the jets in the spray arm ore not plugged at all. Check the black bellows on top the lower spray arm and see if it has a split in it. Let me know if these help or if I can assist you further.
