How can I avoid dishwasher breakdowns?

In order to make it last as long as possible, there are a couple of things you can do to avoid frequent dishwasher repairs. First, you should never overload it. You will likely have to repeat the cycle because the dishes will not come out clean, so you will be having to use the machine a lot more which is increased wear and tear. A good tip to consider is going easy on the dishwasher soap. You will avoid the buildup that causes the motor/pump to work twice as hard by using a reasonable amount of soap.

Why are my dishes coming cloudy and smudgy?

If your dishes are coming out of your dishwasher looking cloudy, the following are potential causes: mineral deposits (which can be cleared with vinegar), excessive or limited detergent, or gel detergents a clogged drain, or water temperature.

Why is my dishwasher not drying my dishes?

If you did not set the correct wash, dry or heat setting, your dishwasher could fail to dry the dishes.

My dishwasher is making strange noises. What can I do?

If you ever hear weird noises coming from your dishwasher, the problem may arise from issues such as faulty motor assembly and dishwasher pump. Otherwise, the cause may be as simple as it not being fastened to the floor or cabinet properly.

How do I know which dishes are dishwasher safe?

Before putting anything in your dishwasher, it’s necessary to check with the manufacturer’s guide to see if it’s dishwasher safe. Items made of aluminum and glass are mainly dishwasher safe, but disposable aluminum items, bottles, and cans are not.

What should I do to maintain my dishwasher?

To keep your dishwasher working well, you should do the following:

  • Get rid of mildew.
  • Wash your dishwasher regularly.
  • Clean the edges and the exterior of your dishwasher.
  • Clean the spinning arms.
  • Use an acid (ie. lemon juice or tang) to get rid of build up.
  • Unclog and clean your dishwasher’s drain.
Why doesn’t my dishwasher wash well?

The solution can be as simple as cleaning your dishwasher if it doesn’t wash well. Another reason for dirty dishes after the cycle ending might be a faulty or clogged inlet valve.

How do I make sure my dishwasher will wash properly?

For ultimate cleaning results, try to scrape off any food residue and load the machine according to the guide written by the manufacturer.

My dishwasher doesn’t drain properly. What should I do?

The most common cause of draining issues when it comes to dishwashers is food residue clogging the dishwasher’s drain hose and/or pump strainer. You can try to clean and unclog the drain hose.  You would first have to disconnect it from the pump. If this doesn’t work, it might be best for you to call Victoria Appliance Repair dishwasher repair team to diagnose and fix the issue.

How can I prepare my dishwasher before technicians arrive?

When our technicians arrive, they will be ready to get straight to work. If you have any dishes inside the machine, you should remove them. It’s also a good idea to make sure that there are no obstructions near the dishwasher.

If your dishwasher doesn’t turn on

Don’t worry, if your dishwasher doesn’t turn on it doesn’t mean you need to buy a new dishwasher. Try unplugging it from the power and plugging it back in. Sometimes this does the trick, so give it a whirl!

If your dishwasher won’t start even though the power is on, have a look at the door latch or switch, which should be located near the top of your appliances’ door. The door latch/door switch ensures that your dishwasher is only working when it is properly closed. If your dishwasher can’t close properly check if there is something blocking it from closing – which could be why it’s not starting.

If you are unable to figure this out, Victoria Appliance Repair is here to help! Just give us a call.
