Why did my Dishwasher break down?
There are many reasons your dishwasher may malfunction, it all depends on the issue. Often we find that pump assemblies can ware out, there could be a leak or alternatively, a heating element could be burnt. Other reasons could be down to clogging in the drain or a faulty water inlet. If one of these parts malfunction, it can more times than often be an express route to a larger issue. It’s not so easy to diagnose an issue with a dishwasher.
It’s always best to get an expert in, DIY is often not the answer and will only cost you valuable time and effort you shouldn’t need to use. If you’re not familiar with repairing the appliance, don’t do it.
Luckily, our team of professionals is able to get the job done and sort your issue with efficiency whilst also being cost-effective.
The common issues and their repair
Water does not drain
One of the most common issues is water not draining, this can often be fixed by ensuring the drain screen is clean, this is located at the bottom of the appliance. This can happen if you’re often washing dishware that is unrinsed. On the other hand, if the drain is clean, the issue could be down to a broken pump or a fault in the drainpipe.
Loud noises coming from the dishwasher
Naturally loud appliances as they are, dishwashers can also become louder if damaged. Often this is caused by the housing being damaged or a blockage somewhere in the system, causing your pump to become louder. This usually isn’t a DIY job and requires a professional to come out and replace. If the dishwasher is shutting off when making the loud noise, the motor will most likely need replacement.
Extended running time and doesn’t clean effectively
If the dishwasher seems to be taking too long in a cycle, it could be your timer or thermostat that has issues. On the other hand, if your dishes appear unclean, it could be anything from the heating elements, armholes for spray or the impeller.
Dishwasher doesn’t stop filling or does not fill at all
If this is an issue you’re having it could be draining abnormally fast, or possibly could be down to the inlet valve for water and/or the float needing to be replaced or possibly cleaned. This is quite an easy one, as all you’ll have to do is remove the panel for lower access and switch the float, or scrub.
However, replacing the valve for water inlet is much harder, every brand has a different one, this is where you’ll need an appliance expert to come in and save the day.
