Dishwashers are a great modern luxury for you and your family members. After cooking dinner, it’s much easier to load and run the dishwasher than handwash the dishes. How do you know if your dishwasher has had enough to be replaced or if it needs some repairs? Here are a few hints your dishwasher needs repairing.
Have you noticed your dishes aren’t properly cleaned after washing? If your dishwasher is not cleaning the load as it should, the pump or the water impeller could be bad. This may also mean that spray arms are blocked or that the heating element is faulty.
When you open the dishwasher to unload it but find the remaining water at the bottom of your dishwasher, you might have a drainage problem. Hopefully, this is just a simple blockage, but it may also indicate that your drain impeller or drain solenoid needs repair or replacement.
Dishwashers are not the quietest devices in the world, but have you started noticing new sounds when they work? Strange sounds may indicate a problem with the motor, impeller, or water intake valve.
Keeps on running
Do you feel like your dishwasher is running longer than usual? If your dishwasher is working beyond the normal cycle time, this indicates a problem with the thermostat or timer. Don’t ignore this if you don’t want to see an increase in electricity and water consumption.
Not filling up
If you don’t hear water coming into the dishwasher, or notice that they have dried out after the cycle ends, it may mean that your dishwasher isn’t filling up with water. Repairing a faulty valve, faulty solenoid, or overflow switch should get your dishwasher back to normal in no time!
