Bosch Dishwasher SGS09A08GB/11 upper arm

12 August 2012 - 04:19 PM

Hello everybody,

I have a question about my dishwasher. When a program starts I can clearly hear that the upper arm is not moving. I can hear the water splashing in the same place and if I open the door the arm is where I left it before running the program.

I have dismantled and cleaned everything, and the arm spins properly by hand. When opening the door I can see water coming out of the arm. The lower arm seems to work properly and I must admit that dishes look fine.

I have tried to put a shim between the door and the upper basket, to make sure the basket is properly pushed towards the water inlet at the back.

Is there anything I could do?

Thanks, Tony

Bosch SGS09A08GB/11 advanced maintenance now I've opened it

25 November 2011 - 04:09 PM

Hello everybody.

Yesterday I heard a loud BANG and my second-hand dishwasher stopped working in a cloud of white smoke. The breaker tripped.

Today I dismantled it and found that - thankfully - it's just the condenser fitted in the mains connector. It has leaked and it short circued the mains - BTW, I cannot find a mains assembly for my model, can I just get another that is supposed to be for another bosch? They look like the same. Fifth picture from left.

I am going to replace it shortly.

But now that my dishwasher is open, is there any maintenance I can do? It is incredibly hard to service - no experience on dishwasher though - if the main pump had gone I wouldn't know how to replace it without dismantle the entire unit.

But the dishwasher has always been a bit smelly and I saw some dirt inside what a website calls "heat exchanger" that maybe needs some attention? Attached a picture, first and second from left.

Also, I can see some leak from a brown thing on top which I ignore the purpose. Third and fourth picture from left.

I also have some new softener resins that may be good for replacing the existing ones, but - really - I do not have any idea how to access the bottom of the unit, it seems not so easy to do.

Anything else I can have a look into? I am quite good at DIY, my field is just very different!

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
