Dishwashers are some of the most useful modern-day inventions. All you need to do is scrape any excess food off your plates and slip them in the machine. Then sit back and relax while your dishes are cleaned in no time.
The sad truth, however, is that they break down sometimes.
Here are a few signs to look out for.
Common Issues with Dishwashers
Dirty Dishes After a Cycle
Make sure that you are scraping the excess food off your dishes before putting them in the machine. Also, ensure that you aren't putting too big of a load in, either. If you're doing both of these steps, then something is malfunctioning.
Not Turning On
If you hear a humming sound after turning on the machine, then something is affecting the motor. If you don't hear anything, unplug it and give us a call. We'll come pinpoint the issue.
Not Filling Enough
Make sure that the door is closed properly. This is a safety measure to ensure that you aren't splashed with boiling water. If the door is closed properly and the machine still won't fill, then you need to call in the professionals.
Won't Stop Filling
This could be due to a stuck timer or a malfunctioning float switch. It could also be a sign that the inlet valve needs servicing. Give us a call and we'll come diagnose the issue.
This usually means that the filter or drain is clogged. If nothing changes after you've cleaned out these two parts, then call us in to come take a look.
The seriousness of this issue depends on how often it occurs. The machine might leak if you've overloaded the machine, but that is a one-off problem. If this is a frequent occurrence, then you need to call in the professionals.
Door Won't Close
Door mechanisms can be finicky. The latch may have worn out, causing the door mechanisms to not be aligned properly. If the machine senses that the door isn't closed properly, it won't start. If this occurs often, give us a call and we'll come fix it.
Too Much Noise
Grinding or knocking sounds are not normal sounds to hear. A noisy dishwasher could be due to a lot of things. It's best to let us have a look.
