There are several things you can do to keep your dishwasher running smoothly. The first rule to remember is to never overload it. Your dishes will not come out clean if your dishwasher is overloaded and you will need to repeat the wash if this happens. It’s also important not to add too much dishwasher soap. If you use too much, it can cause a buildup in the appliance and this can damage the motor, pump and other working parts.
It’s possible that this is caused by mineral deposits building up. The good news is that this problem can be solved with vinegar. If the drain is clogged, it can also cause cloudy dishes. Incorrect water temperature or excess detergent are also common causes. If none of these are to blame, call our team right away.
If your dishes are still very wet after the wash cycle, you might not have set the dry or heat cycle correctly.
If your dishwasher is not properly secured to the cabinet or floor, it can result in some pretty strange sounds. Alternatively, a faulty motor assembly or pump could be to blame. These faults are best diagnosed by a technician.
Before you place anything in your dishwasher, it’s important to check with the manufacturer to make sure that they are dishwasher safe. Glass and aluminum are dishwasher safe but disposable bottles and aluminum cans are not. In most cases, you will see a dishwasher safe symbol printed somewhere on the dish or it will be printed on the packaging. Take extra care when it comes to plastic since it can melt due to the very hot water.
In order to keep your dishwasher working properly, you need to do the following:
Leaks will often come from the door. It could be due to a faulty pump or the door gasket has become significantly worn. Call a technician to diagnose and repair this problem promptly.
If your dishes aren’t coming out clean, it could be due to overloading or your inlet valve is either faulty or clogged.
Apart from loading your dishwasher according to the manufacturer’s guidelines, you should also scrape off any food residue before loading your dishwasher. Use the recommended detergent and select the appropriate wash cycle settings.
This problem could be caused by a faulty door latch. If the dishwasher detects that the door is not closed, it will not turn on. Call a technician for professional assistance.
If food residue builds up in the drain hose or pump strainer, it can cause this problem. You need to clean and unclog these parts of the dishwasher. Remember, you will need to disconnect the drain hose from the pump before you can clean it out.
The best thing to do is to remove the dishes from your dishwasher if you are able to do so. Our team will take care of the rest.
DIY dishwasher repairs are not recommended since these appliances are complex. Diagnosing and repairing the fault will require expertise, specialized tools and possibly replacement parts too.
