Troubleshoot a Broken Dishwasher
If your dishwasher is broken, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem before you call for professional help.
My Dishwasher Won’t Come On
If the entire appliance is dead with no sound, water, or lights, the first step is to check the power source. Make sure your dishwasher is still connected to the outlet and check for a blown fuse or flipped circuit. Take a closer look at the door latch to make sure it is properly sealed because that can sometimes prevent the dishwasher from coming on. If none of these steps fixes the problem, the problem is likely one of the main components like the motor or selector switch. We can replace these parts quickly for a fraction of the cost of dishwasher replacement so call Appliance Repair Pros for a free consultation and repair estimate.
My Dishwasher is Making Unusual Noises
Another common complaint is that the dishwasher is making a loud humming sound or strange vibrations during use. These noises generally indicate a problem with the motor, pump, or belt. Unfortunately, these repairs are not easy for the average homeowner to tackle, but call our customer service department and we can send a dishwasher repair technician out to assess the problem and replace the broken part.
My Dishwasher Isn’t Draining Properly
Problems with drainage are pretty common for dishwashers, especially after years of routine use. There are several potential reasons why your dishwasher won’t drain. First, make sure it has completed the entire wash cycle. If someone opened the dishwasher before it finished running, it may just need to complete the cycle to empty remaining water. Make sure the drain is not blocked by food particles. Sometimes little bits of food and debris can create blockages. Take a paper towel and wipe away any debris and see if this resolves the issue.
When to Call for Professional Help
Some dishwasher problems require the help of a professional repair technician. If you notice temperature issues or you cannot resolve the problem with the troubleshooting tips above, then it’s time to call Appliance Repair Pros and request a visit from a Los Angeles dishwasher repair technician.
