When You Need Dishwasher Repair

Dishwashers are a common commodity in households today. They make washing dishes a simple task, and are greatly preferred to the manual scrubbing and washing of dishes, but when your dishwasher is not working properly it becomes a huge hassle and even a costly issue. The need for dishwasher repair should never be neglected, as ignoring the problem could cause the need for even more repair work, or even the need to attain an entirely new unit. 

Some common signs you may need dishwasher repair include but are not limited to:

  • A leaking unit. This problem could be caused by the use of an incorrect amount of soap, a worn gasket, or a leaking pump or motor assembly. Whatever the problem, the best course for your unit is to seek professional advice immediately. 
  • Dishes not being cleaned. This could be caused by a bad pump or wash impeller, blocked sprayers on the arms, or a defective heating element. In any of these cases, the problem could likely be remedied by a professional. 
  • Cloudy glasses. This is typically due to hard water or poor rinsing before washing. This can likely be solved and needs addressing right away.
  • A dishwasher that does not fill. This could be an overflow switch that is not working, a defective solenoid on the water inlet, or a faulty valve. Each of these problems could be tested for and corrected by a professional.

If you notice any of these problems, or something else that is wrong with your unit, it is always a good idea to contact a professional.
