Does your dishwasher occasionally leave behind residue marks on your dishes or leave them completely soaked after a cycle? If this happens too often to you and you wish you could pull your dishes from the dishwasher dried and cleaned, then you could be in need of a dishwasher repair. Dishwashers are intended to brighten and shine your dishes, while also sanitizing them and removing all traces of food and debris from their surface. If this does not happen, your dishwasher could be faulty or malfunctioning.

Dishwasher Repairs

Dishwasher repairs are typically quite simple and are much cheaper than replacing the dishwasher altogether. The most common types of dishwasher damages we see include the occasional leaks beneath the dishwasher or internal problems with the fan, filter, or motor. This can happen when your dishwasher is not adequately connected to its water source or parts of the interior are loose or faulty. We can usually determine the cause of the problem with a quick assessment prior to repairs. Often, you might just need a small piece repaired as part of the whole system.

Dishwasher Not Cleaning

If your dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly, there could likely be a problem with the pressure of the water, the temperature of the water, the amount of water available, or the power source. When a dishwasher is turned on, the pressure and power of the water is intended to thoroughly wash away all debris and hard residue on your dishes with ease. It then sanitizes the dishes with steam and dries them with warm air that leaves them fresh and ready to use, once a cycle has been completed. If this is not occurring, your dishwasher likely needs its water source checked or its filter inspected.

Dishwasher Not Running Cycles

When your dishwasher is not running full cycles or stopping early when you know it hasn’t yet completed its cleaning, there could be a problem with the motor. The motor and timer are often what work together to deliver clean dishes after a full cycle. When one or both are faulty and not functioning, it can result in your cycles finishing early or before the next element of your cycle has time to go into effect. This can leave your dishes covered in soap or dripping wet when your dishwasher says it has finished a cycle.

Dishwasher Not Drying Dishes

As mentioned previously, one of the common defects we find in dishwashers is the motor or timer. If you find that your dishes are coming out of the dishwasher clean and sanitized but not completely dry, this could mean that your timer has not reached its full circle and thus completed a cycle early before there was enough time to dry the dishes. While it’s not unsafe to use the wet dishes (as most of them have been cleaned and sanitized) it can be annoying to have to go back and dry them manually rather than having your dishwasher do it for you.
