I have a Bosch dishwasher SGS46E02G/75 which is not cleaning

Customer Question

I have a Bosch dishwasher SGS46E02G/75 which is not cleaning items in the upper tray right hand side. I have checked the salt, broggled the spray arms, used a generic cleaner, cleaned the trap, checked the impeller and have now run out of ideas!
Any suggestions?
Many thanks

Hi, Michael,
The dishwasher is about 9 years old. That model number is ***** recognized by the Bosch website!
Yes, the lack of cleaning is the top right hand side. The items are left with small food bits on them and some residue is there too. I have cleaned the two spray arms several times now, to no avail.

Hi, the sites wont always recognize the models :-(

You really need to call them to place your order, here is a good site for that but please call, they will figure this out for you;-)

Also they will ship the same day in most cases.

I will help you replace the bad part. But first you need to check the main water pump, for a clog, check the supply lines and and inside the pump impeller to be sure there isn't food clogging it.

If that's all clear you need to replace the main water pump in this one. Also, I woudl also replace the water inlet valve at this time. It is an electrically operated solenoid for letting water in to the unit, They wear out and clog as well.

Just a small restriction will cause this issue as well-)

Please call Espares to place your order: 0844 9777 888.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
