When you call your local Mr. Appliance or schedule service online, our live agents will match you with the right service professional to get your dishwasher fixed as soon as possible.

Here are some of the problems we normally address:

  • The dishwasher isn’t cleaning dishes well: A blocked spray arm, worn pump assembly, wash impeller problem, or burned-out heating element can all cause the dishwasher to not clean dishes effectively.
  • The dishwasher hums and then turns off: If the motor is seized and needs to be replaced, your dishwasher may stop mid-cycle.
  • The dishwasher wash cycle takes too long: A defective thermostat, timer, or control board can lead to longer wash cycles.
  • The dishwasher does not fill with water: An issue with the float switch can prevent your dishwasher from filling with water.
  • The dishwasher is not draining: An issue with the drain, filter, or air gap can cause drainage issues. When left unchecked, this can create the perfect environment for mold or cause the dishwasher to smell bad.
  • The dishwasher is leaking water: Problems with the gasket, drain, water line, or other components can make the dishwasher leak.
  • The dishwasher rack has rust: Older dishwasher racks might rust and need to be replaced.

If an appliance is too damaged or old, we may recommend replacing it entirely. But in many cases, a dishwasher repair will cost less and is more eco-friendly than a replacement.

  • Jim H., Yelp

Wow! Used this company for the first time today and I was very impressed.

#1 They got me in on a cancellation.

#2 They were very knowledgeable and took the time to not only diagnose the problem but also explain my options.

#3 Before they came out they sent me a picture of the technician who was coming to my home (what a great safety feature especially for women home alone).

I will be calling them back if I need repairs again.

  • Maryann B., Yelp

When I called…[service professional] was sent to our house about our dishwasher leaking. Because of the type of leak, it was extremely hard to diagnose…

(I like the fact that he did not give up.) He fixed it and double-checked it.

I highly recommend him for any appliance needs and will be requesting him if I ever need work done again.
