Dishwashers are trailblazers in terms of convenience and efficiency. You simply scrape off any excess food, slip your dishes into the machine and let the dishwasher do the rest. However, if it starts to malfunction in any way, this can be very frustrating. Call Luke’s Appliance Repair and we can send one of our certified technicians over to take a look. They have extensive experience with every brand and model of dishwasher on the market and are highly trained.
Signs That Your Dishwasher Needs Repair
Dirty Dishes or Cloudy Glasses
This usually indicates that you’ve rinsed your dishes poorly before loading them into the dishwasher. Try adding some softener to your dishwasher and see if that solves anything. If not, then this indicates a problem with the spray armholes, the heating element or the wash impeller. Give us a call and we’ll send one of our technicians over to have a look.
Wash Cycle Goes for Longer Than Normal
This is a clear sign that the dishwasher is struggling to complete the wash cycle. The timer or thermostat may need servicing.
If you notice a humming sound coming from your dishwasher before it suddenly turns off, then the motor has reached the end of its life and needs replacing.
Dishwasher Not Filling
This can be explained by multiple internal components failing, such as the water inlet solenoid, the timer or the overflow float switch.
Water Won’t Pump Out
If your dishwasher is struggling to properly pump out any excess water, then you need to have the drain solenoid, or the impeller serviced. The drain line might also be clogged and need cleaning.
If you use the wrong kind of soap or simply too much of it, then it can lead to leaks. The motor assembly or the spray arm assembly may also need repairing.
Certain internal components can be replaced as a unit, which is easier and cheaper than involving professionals. If you are attempting any basic DIY repairs, then make sure that you turn off both the electrical and plumbing systems. Remove the fuse from the circuit breaker and shut off the power supply to the dishwasher.
