Dishwashers are often the unsung hero when it comes to appliances in our home. After making a meal, nobody wants to stop and do all of the dishes they created. Instead, they’d rather get through them as quickly as possible. However, this is not always possible when the dishwasher stops working. It’s important for you to know what steps you should take if the dishwasher breaks down, especially if it no longer works during a cycle.
Check the Latch
Before you assume there are other problems with your dishwasher, be sure to check some of the main components that allow the unit to run. This includes the latch that locks the door. If this is not closing the door properly, the machine may not even start running. Ensure that it is locking completely and there are no intrusions blocking it.
Be Sure the Drain Isn’t Clogged
Dishwashers fill up with soap and water, and along with debris, it must drain correctly. If the hoses are clogged, it can cause serious problems. If this is the case, you can check the main hose and see if it has cracked or come loose, but for more serious issues, you would want to call on a professional who can help you fix it.
Look at the Electrical Components
Unfortunately, there are times when the plug can just become loose or is removed from the power outlet completely. This would cause it to stop working. Pull the dishwasher out if possible and check where it plugs in to the wall to ensure it’s connected correctly.
Call a Professional
