The Bohr model works only for hydrogen because it considers only the interactions between one electron and the nucleus.

The Bohr model is based on the energy levels of one electron orbiting a nucleus at various energy levels. Any other electrons in the atom will repel the one electron and change its energy level. The Bohr model does not consider these extra interactions, so it does not work for atoms other than hydrogen.
