postheadericon Dishwasher Repair

When your dishwasher fills with water, it does not do so like a washing machine. What happens is that water is made to flood the bottom part of the dishwasher. There, the water is mixed with the dishwashing soap. The soapy water is then pumped via a rotating spray fixture onto the dirty dishes. The water is drained. Then fresh water is introduced at the lower part to replace the soapy water and is sprayed using the same rotating spray to rinse the dishes.

Timed heating cycles are also involved to thoroughly clean and dry the dishes. Regular maintenance must include cleaning and wiping crud and dirt from the rotating spray arm, the float switch, the valve screen, and the door gasket.

Have you noticed any of these common problems with your dishwasher?

  • A white film forms inside your dishwasher after a cycle is completed.

  • Streaks, stains, and spots are seen on your dishes after you’ve run them in the dishwasher.

  • Your dishwasher takes a long time to finish washing your dirty dishes.

  • Your dishwasher leaks and water ends up on the kitchen floor.

  • Your dishwasher won’t start.

Handy Troubleshooting Tips for Common Dishwasher Problems

  • If you notice a white film on your dishes after you’ve finished running a dishwashing cycle, then you might be looking at the remains of hard water. The white film is composed of mineral deposits from the water. Before you introduce water softener, test for water hardness first.
  • If you see spots or streaks on your dishes after washing them, then you might want to use the rinsing heat-dry option that’s present on your dishwasher.
  • If it takes too long to completely wash your dirty dishes, then you might want to pre-heat the tap before you start the dishwasher.
  • If your dishwashing unit has water leaks where water comes out of its door, then it can be caused by a damaged door gasket or a door that does seal properly. Check for those trouble spots. It is also possible that you are using detergent that is not intended for dishwashers. Using hand-washing detergent can produce a lot of foam, which may result to water leaks.
If the unit does not start, check the power outlet first. It may not be safe for you to manually spin the fan blades of the motor that runs the dishwasher in order to restart it. Let a professional take care of it.
