DIY Troubleshooting Before Calling for Repairs

  1. Not draining dirty water – if you hear humming or a motor noise that’s great news! It normally means that the unit is unable to push the water past some restriction. Most times if you have a blockage the area of debris will be at either the connection between garbage disposal and dishwasher drain or on some units they have to extend the drain lines which equates to more restrictions.

  2. Not filling with water – under the sink (normally) there is a water supply line that feeds your dishwasher. Ensure the valve is in the on position. We see this on new constructions and homeowners entering a purchased property where previous owners shut the water off.

  3. No function (or lights) – If you are new to your home then there is likely a light switch nearby that has the power for the dishwasher running through it. NC general contractors are fairly good about following the 2008 NEC which states that a dishwasher must have a service disconnect within visible working area for service to the dishwasher.

  4. Not drying your dishes well – Rinse aid is one of the most important drying aspects commonly overlooked. Without rinse aid the water struggles to separate on a molecular level causing pools of water to form on top of bowls and glasses but with rinse aid it breaks down the molecular structure that attracts water to water and causes the unit to dry fast and more efficiently.

  5. Leaking from the front door panel – This is most common on dishwashers that spray water up from below the bottom rack on a rotating arm. In some cases you’ll find a perfectly shaped bowl that is able to redirect the jet of water from the spray arm to directly below the door seal. If you notice a cup or two of water during one run but not the next- chances are you need to move your bowls and serve ware to the top rack of the dishwasher (at minimum move it to the back of the bottom rack).

Dishwasher Repair

We understand the essential role dishwashers play in your daily life. These machines make cleaning up after meals easy, but it can be a real headache when they break down. 

Dealing with dishes piling up is stressful, but you don't have to worry. Our years of experience fixing dishwashers of all types allow us to get your dishwasher working again quickly and efficiently.

Common Dishwasher Problems

Dishwashers are handy, but they can run into problems. Here are some common issues that we see during our visits:

  • Drain Clogs - Sometimes, dishwashers don't drain properly. This can happen if there’s a blockage in the drain line.
  • Control Board Malfunctions - The control board might be the culprit if your dishwasher acts up or doesn't start.
  • Water Valve Issues - A faulty water valve can stop your dishwasher from filling with water.
  • Heat Circuit Problems - Issues with the heat circuit can mean dishes don't dry properly.
  • Low Wash Pressure - If your dishes aren't getting clean, it could be due to low pressure in the wash cycle.
  • Leaks - Leaks are a big concern. They can cause water damage in your kitchen.

It's essential to fix these problems quickly. Letting them go can lead to more significant, more expensive repairs.

DIY Tips Before Seeking Professional Help

If your dishwasher is giving you trouble, here are some simple things to check before calling us:

  • Drain Blockages - Make sure the drain isn't clogged. Sometimes, food or other debris can block the water from draining out.
  • Water Supply Valve - Look under the sink and check if the valve that supplies water to your dishwasher is open. It might be turned off, especially in new homes or after some work.
  • Power Connections - Ensure your dishwasher is properly plugged in. Sometimes, the plug can come loose.
  • Rinse Aid - For better drying, use rinse aid. It helps water spread and evaporate faster.

Remember, these are just basic checks. If the problem seems complicated, it's best to call us for professional advice to avoid further damage.
