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.

Kitchenaide rinse dispenser in dishwasher doesn't work. White soapy streaks on plates


Confirm that lower washarm is rotating. Initially check by rotating by hand. Second mark arm position turn on unit stop and heck arm position.

Listen very carefully and confirm arm is turning. It is often found debris clogs the lower arm jet preventing the arm from turning.

Also check the water level in washer sump. Low will also keep the arm from rotating.

Hope this helps.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

either the arm is worn, or you have a loss of pressure to turn the arm, the upper arm need alot more pressure..you may have a clogged pump, or clogged sump area..

Bottom of my Bosch dishwasher not cleaning dishes, top tray OK have cleaned / taken apart


Carefully inspect the lower spray arm for a crack or separation.
Also inspect the holes in the spray arm that may be stopped up with debris.
Remove and clean the filter in the front center of the tub.
Set the spray arm at the 12 o'clock position and start the washer. After 30 seconds open the door and check the position of the spray arm. Do thi several times to confirm the spray arm is rotating.

I have a bosch dishwasher, the arms are clear with water coming out but not spinning. how can I fix this?


water coming out of horizontal holes is not enough to rotate arms remove them and check the outermost holes these are angled so they rotate the arms they will be blocked even though all the others are clear.

Dishwasher arms not rotating on bosch exxcel


clean the holes in the arm (the arm is removable, usually by turning a small x shaped thing in the middle of the arm), if that isnt enough you can drill 2 small holes in the side, near the end (same sides as the rest of the holes) those holes is usually enough to make the arm rotate again

Clogged dishwasher arms


Our Bosch has a round knob in the center of the arm, under the basket. ROtate it 90 degrees, and the arm drops away and can be cleaned.

My Bosch dishwasher model #SHU43C05UC/14 drains well and has enough water(I replaced the inlet water valve already),but not washing the dishes clean especially the top rack.What could be wrong?


open machine when running and check both spray arms rotating - you will get a bit of water out. if spray arms not rotating, usual cause is debris in the arms. the spray arms only rotate by water jetting from angled jets at the end of the arms. take them out and make sure all debris removed

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.
