The Top Reasons Dishwashers Need Repairs
It is not always clear when you need dishwasher repairs. Sometimes your dishwasher will show early signs of a future breakdown. If you can catch these common issues early, you can prevent more expensive repairs down the road. Some of the indicators that you may need dishwasher repair service include:
- Dishes are still dirty – If your dishes are not thoroughly cleaned after running them through your dishwasher, we will likely need to repair or replace your heating element, pump assembly, or wash impeller.
- Cloudy glass – When your water is particularly hard, it can cause your glasses to develop a foggy buildup after going through the dishwasher. Sometimes, simply rinsing glass before loading it will solve the problem. If not, you should consider installing a water softener.
- Extended wash cycles – When the timer or thermostat on your dishwasher malfunction, you may notice the wash cycle taking longer than usual. We can help you repair or replace your timer or thermostat to fix this issue.
- Humming noises – A seized motor can make a buzzing or humming noise when it tries to run. If your motor has seized up, it will need to be replaced.
- Leftover water – All the water should drain out of your dishwasher before it completes its cycle. When it doesn’t, we first look for problems with your solenoid, drain line, or drain impeller.
- Not filling with water – Your dishwasher can’t do anything without water. A lack of water is usually due to a defective valve, water inlet solenoid, timer, or overflow float switch.
- Leaks – If puddles are forming around your dishwasher during or after use, the most common cause is simply using too much dish soap. Make sure you are using the right type and amount of dish soap. If you are, the issue probably rests in your door gaskets, motor assembly, or tub-to-motor gaskets.
