Fixing Your Dishwasher
Dishwashers are one of those appliances that save you so much time and energy so that you can do other, much more important, things. You never realize how much you rely on your dishwasher until it is broken and out of commission.
You want to find a professional repair service that can not only fix any problem that may be plaguing your dishwasher, but you also want to find one that can help you with regular maintenance too. Great repairs and regular maintenance will help to ensure that your dishwasher lasts as long as possible.
Signs That You May Need To Have Your Dishwasher Repaired
Here is a list of issues that you should watch out for so that you can call us as soon as possible.
Dirty Dishes (After The Cycle Is Complete)
A burned-out heating element, a blocked spray hole, a burnt-out pump assembly or wash impeller, are some of the most common problems our techs encounter. What good is a dishwasher that isn't cleaning the dishes?
A Strange Humming Noise
This hum is a normal noise to hear if you need to have your motor serviced or replaced altogether. It is most common to hear this right before the dishwasher shuts off.
This is a problem that may not necessarily need the attention of a repair tech, other than giving some advice. You need to make sure that you are rinsing the dishes properly, loading them properly, and that you are using a water softener (if you have hard water).
Water Not Pumping Out Properly
A worn-out impeller or drain solenoid, as well as a clogged drain line, can cause this problem.
There are a few things that can cause this to happen such as using the wrong type of or too much soap, worn-out door gaskets, a leaking motor pump or assembly, or worn down spray arm assemblies.
It's Not Filling
Though this can seem like a simple issue, there are a few things that can cause this problem. It could be due to a bad water inlet solenoid, a broken timer, a malfunctioning/broken overflow float switch, or a bad valve.
Wash Cycle Continuing To Run
This is a sign that the dishwasher is not completing cycles properly. A bad thermostat or timer is usually the cause of this problem.
Do-It-Yourself Dishwasher Repair
For those who are semi-handy around the house, there are some parts of a dishwasher that can be removed and replaced as a unit. If there is a part or unit that you believe may be the problem but aren't sure, you can have a pro come in a test the dishwasher. Once they conduct the test, you will know whether you can just replace the part or if you are going to have to invest in an all-new dishwasher.
Before any DIY dishwasher repair, you have to make sure that you disconnect the water and the electricity so that you can avoid any potential injury risks.
