Common Dishwasher Problems
Due to our decades of combined experience, we’ve seen our fair share of dishwasher issues. Regardless of what may be going on with your kitchen appliance right now, there’s a good chance our team has seen it before. This allows us the opportunity to quickly locate the cause of your trouble and get started on a repair within minutes of arriving at your home.
Some of the most common dishwasher problems we see include:
- Leftover Residue – Whether it’s a thin layer on your dishes or cloudy glassware, any streaks or residue left after a cleaning cycle may be due to improper loading. If it continues to happen, something internal needs to be repaired.
- Wet Dishes – Are your dishes coming out wet even though you set them to dry? While it may or may not be due to a burnt-out heating element, it can also be a sign that the drying propeller has bit the dust.
- Leak or Flooding – If your dishwasher has leaked on your kitchen floor or the water is not draining in the bottom of the dishwasher, it may be caused by a clog, worn door seal, or even a leaking pump and motor assembly.
This just scratches the surface of some of the most common dishwasher issues we solve every day for homeowners in Olympia and beyond. If you’re experiencing any of these above issues – or something else entirely – don’t wait any longer.

Why does my dishwasher smell?
There are a few common causes of a smelly dishwasher, some more serious than others:
You wash your dishes infrequently - If you have a smaller household, eat out a lot, or have a lot of backup dishes, your dishwasher may not need to be run very often. You may want to consider washing smaller batches more frequently with the “light” cycle if this is an issue.
The food trap is clogged - Waste can get caught deep within the trap and cause a foul odor. You may not want to put your hand down there and call a professional instead if you suspect this is the case. If any dishes or glass have ever broken in the dishwasher in the past, there might be lingering shards.
Your drain hose is damaged - If you can pull your dishwasher away from the wall a few inches, you may be able to see the hosing. If you can see any obvious damage, you’ll want to call for a repair.
Clogged garbage disposal - This may seem odd at first, because the garbage disposal is in your sink, but wastewater from the dishwasher actually needs to flow into the same drain as your sink.
