The lower arm on my Bosch Exxel SGS53AO2GB/42 FD8302 is not

This answer was rated:

The lower arm on my Bosch Exxel SGS53AO2GB/42 FD8302 is not working (the top spray arm is fine and washes items on the top shelf ok). I have taken the lower spray arm out and cleaned it thoroughly. I have also cleaned the filters and run a dishwasher cleaner through on a normal wash. None of this has worked. Help!
Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

when you say its not working, is it that water is coming out of the lower arm, but its not turning, or is there no water coming out of it?

There appears to be water coming out of the spray arm but it is not turning.


If there is water coming out of the arm, but its not turning
the spray arm is worn

It is only the action of the water spraying out of the holes than turns the spary arm backwards

Would you like me to find the part for you?
