Like every other appliance, a dishwasher has many different parts that work together to make it function at its best. When one of these parts begins to stop working or loses optimal functionality, the machine as a whole can begin to break/not work as effectively. It’s not all bleak, however. If your dishwasher is beginning to break down and you need to find the right dishwasher repair services/advice to fix it, let our team at Alpha Appliance Services help. Today, our team talks about some common dishwasher issues and why they may be happening. 

The Dishes Aren’t Being Cleaned Properly 

There’s nothing worse than finding out that your dishwasher’s main purpose is not being performed properly. When dishes do not come out of your dishwasher clean, you can end up spending more time washing dishes and letting the dishwasher’s state get worse. Luckily, there are easy (and complex) ways to fix this issue depending directly on what’s causing it. In most situations, the reason why a dishwasher isn’t doing its job properly is due to a clogged filter. To fix this issue, simply turn off the dishwasher, thoroughly clean the parts of your dishwasher (spray arms, surfaces, filter, etc.) and then turn it back on to see if it will go through a proper cycle. If the issue still persists, it will likely need to be sorted by an appliance repair professional.  

The Dishwasher Isn’t Turning On 

This issue is one that will almost always require a professional appliance repair specialist. Since the power that is connected to a dishwasher is a bit more of a complex process overall, the issues could be due to a number of different things. The fuse could be blown, the appliance could have short circuited, there could be a loose connection, or wires could be broken/frayed. Regardless of what the issue truly is, issues with power require extensive skills & experience to fix. These problems also come with a safety risk, so hiring the right professionals to do the job is a good idea for a number of different reasons. In short, if you notice that your dishwasher isn’t turning on anymore, don’t take the machine apart or try fixing it yourself- call a professional ASAP. 

A Leaky Dishwasher 

If you begin a cycle and notice that your dishwasher is starting to leak soap/water, it is important that you shut the device off immediately and turn off the water supply. This issue can happen for a number of different reasons, with the main ones being involved with a dishwasher’s rubber seal or excess use of detergent. When the seal of a dishwashers door is damaged, water can begin to seep out of the machine and onto the floor. Alternatively, if you use too much detergent in your cycles, a dishwasher can begin to unnecessarily overflow. To fix this, always make sure you’re using the right amount of detergent for each cycle. When you need a rubber seal replaced, calling an appliance repair professional is important.
