From inconsistent wash cycles to door latches that will not properly lock to annoying drainage complications, any number of problems can cause your dishwasher to return diminishing results. Whether you are looking for routine maintenance services or a specific repair, we are ready to be of service.
Common indicators that a dishwasher needs professional repair:
- A noisy dishwasher – Depending on the noise, our technicians can usually determine if it is a worn-out bearing on the washer arm, failed pump housing, or the rattle of a motor bushing.
- An inoperative dishwasher – If your dishwasher will not turn on or start, we will inspect its key parts, including the fuse, timer, electronic control unit, and door latch switch. If it hums and quickly shuts down, this often indicates a seized motor relay.
- An ineffective dishwasher – If your dishwasher is not cleaning properly, we will look at your water delivery tubes, housing gaskets, wash impellers, and filters. From blocked holes on the spray arm to worn-out pumps, the causes could be manifold.
- A leaky dishwasher – One common reason a leak occurs is quite simple: the soap is not compatible or the improper amount is used for your specific appliance. However, it could also be the result of much more complicated scenarios, including weathered door seals, broken spray arm assemblies, failed tub-to-motor gaskets, worn pumps, or a defective water inlet valve.
- A flooded dishwasher – If the water does not drain by completion, we can investigate the drain pump, drain hose, and pump motor. It is common to find the drain line clogged or the drain solenoid to be worn down. If it is not fully drying, the source of the problem may be the rinse aid dispenser or a heating component. Sometimes, your dishwasher might run much too long. If it is not finishing its cycle at the expected time, the issue usually has to do with the thermostat or timer.
- A waterless dishwasher – If water fails to release or pump out, it is likely an issue with the water inlet solenoid valve or the overflow float switch. A clogged intake valve screen is perhaps the most common symptom of no or low water levels during dishwashing cycles. Often, debris or mineral buildup can block the holes in the spray arm, or the float can end up getting stuck in a raised position preventing the tub from filling. Another possibility is that something may be prohibiting the dishwasher spray arm from spinning freely.
- Cloudy glassware –Sometimes, cloudy dishes merely result from failing to rinse properly. Other times, it may be a sign of hard water and insufficient softeners.
- Detergent dispenser failure – If your dishwasher detergent is not dispensed, we will test out the bi-metal release and wax motor.
