Dishwashers are some of the most useful inventions known to society. You simply scrape off any excess food, slip your dishes into the machine and let it do the rest. When they break down, it can cause a great deal of inconvenience. Here are some common signs that a dishwasher needs repairing.
Signs That a Dishwasher Needs Repairing
Dirty Dishes After a Wash Cycle
It is important to scrape food off of your dishes before putting them in the machine. It is also important to not overload the dishwasher. If you are doing these two things and your dishes are still dirty, then it’s time to call an expert.
Not Turning on or Starting
Switch on the machine and listen. Humming noises mean that the motor is failing. No noise at all is an indicator that you should turn off your machine and call us. We can pinpoint the issue, and have it quickly repaired.
Not Enough Water
The machine will not fill unless the door is completely closed. This is a safety precaution to prevent you from being sprayed with boiling water. If the door is properly closed and the machine still won’t fill, then you need to have it serviced.
Won’t Stop Filling
This can usually be traced back to a float switch or timer that needs repairing. The inlet valve could also need looking at.
Usually means that the filter or drain is blocked. Clean them both out and, if necessary, replace the filter. If that doesn’t solve anything, then call in the professionals.
If your appliance is leaking regularly and you’re not overloading the dishwasher, then it’s time to call in a repair service. Leaks can lead to costly damage if not addressed.
Door Won’t Close
In this case, the door latch may be worn, or some internal component may have gotten pushed out of line. The machine will not run unless the door is properly closed. We can service the dishwasher quickly and efficiently.
Grinding or knocking sounds are not pleasant or normal sounds to hear from the dishwasher. We recommend that you turn it off and not touch it until we’ve come to have a look. Many things could be causing the noise.
