Question about Dishwashers
The lower arm pops off during cycle
Posted on Jul 29, 2009
Rotation is only by water coming out of angled jets at end of spray arm. probable that these are blocked. take spray arms out and run water thro centre hole and remove whatever is blocking the jets - usually rice or sweet corn

The quality/quantity of responses you get here on FixYa can greatly vary for WHEN you place your question.
There are a handfull of "experts" who use fixya that simply have a generic cut and paste answer for every question asked on FixYa.
"Final Answer" is one.
Many have little to no english skills, and resort to cutting and pasting the same answer to every question.
I apologize for their ignorance and im sure your post will soon be answered by knowledgeable QUALIFIED personnel.
Real answers are not automated here - I assure you. Give it a little time for our experts in the US to wake up and get coffee into their system.
We are not employed by FixYa - sitting in a little cubicle waiting to answer questions. Most of FixYa experts do this in their spare time between real service calls.
Be assured that if you are not satisfied - it is easy to request a refund. Please email Lauren@FixYa.com if in the next day or so you have not gotten a fix to your problem.
Now that's out of my system I can try to help troubleshoot your problem.
Bosch dishwashers use a water system called FLOW CONTROL... which utilizes a valving system to control which arm gets water during the cycles.
Most washers see water at both arms all the time. Yours is controled with a PLC and uses information gathered from onboard sensors to tell the valves to open or close.
Your Lower sprayarm valve is faulty, or the controller board is bad.
Since we do not know your mechanical/troubleshooting skillset - all we can do is offer advice and try and help you if you feel this is a problem you would rather attempt to tackle yourself.
I have searched BOSCH website and could not find your model washer in their documentation. Please double check that it is SHV55M03GB/40 that you posted.
