Dishwashers are pretty amazing machines that save us so much time by enabling us to simply load them up, push a button and go. Long gone are the days of having to slave away in the kitchen, washing and drying each and every dish by hand. So, when a dishwasher stops working, it put a pretty big kink in a schedule, by forcing us to spend that time back in the kitchen, instead of out with our families or getting our work done. Because of this, should your dishwasher go down, let us come and fix it up!
If you are running the dishwasher and notice water seeping out of it, there is obviously a problem happening. In the same way, even if the dishwasher is not running, but you notice water pooling around the bottom of it, something is going on. The problem in this situation is usually a broken seal. When the door of the dishwasher doesn’t seal completely, it isn’t enough to automatically shut off the appliance, but it is enough to let water push out. We can fix this for you in no time at all!
Not Cleaning Dishes
The entire point of a dishwasher is to, well, wash the dishes! So, if after a cycle, you notice that your dishes are not clean at all, there is definitely a problem inside. While this may seem like a pretty big problem, as it is defeating the entire purpose of this appliance, it’s typically a relatively simply fix. When your dishes aren’t getting properly washed, it’s usually a result of the spray arms being clogged. We can come and try to clean them out and, if that doesn’t work, we can either replace the nozzles or the spray arm completely.
Leaking and overflowing may seem similar, but they are two completely different things. While leaking is generally the result of a broken seal, overflowing is generally the result of pieces not talking to each other inside your appliance. There are valves that are meant to monitor water levels inside your dishwasher and, when these aren’t functioning correctly, it can cause too much waster to fill your appliance, putting stress on all the seams. This can cause water to push out, creating a massive flooding issue. This can be dangerous for not only you, but if you live in a stacked building, your neighbors as well.
If, after a cycle, you notice that there is still water sitting in the bottom of the dishwasher, there could be a problem with the drainage system. This could either be a result of a clogged drain inside the dishwasher or it could be a problem further down in the drainage system; possibly in a drain line. If your appliance is not draining, give us a call and let us come and figure out what the problem is. We have all proper tools to clean and replace your dishwasher drain and get it back up and functioning like new.
