Expert Repairs for Common Dishwasher Problems
If your dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly, there are several possible causes. Fortunately, Mr. Appliance of Alexandria is ready to tackle any issue.
Dishwasher Not Getting Enough Water
Make sure the dishwasher is receiving enough water first. The water supply line might restrict the flow of water to the dishwasher if it is kinked or clogged. Moreover, check to see that the float switch, which regulates the dishwasher's water level, is not obstructed in the "up" position.
Spray Arm Is Clogged or Blocked
Another typical issue is a clogged spray arm on the dishwasher. The spray arm has a number of tiny holes that let water pass through and reach the dishes. The water will not be able to reach the dishes and they will not be cleaned if these holes are covered by food particles or other things.
To clean the spray arm, remove it from the dishwasher and soak it in a solution of vinegar and water.
Problems with the Pump or Motor
If the dishwasher is still failing to clean dishes thoroughly, there may be an issue with the pump or motor component. With time, certain components may deteriorate and require replacement. It is preferable to consult a professional for assistance if you think there might be an issue with these components.
