Choosing The Right Professionals

After struggling for years to figure out what to do with my old appliances, I realized that working with professional technicians to get them fixed up would probably be a good idea. I was nervous about the idea of investing in appliance services, but friends and family members told me that it was the right thing to do. When I found a great team, I talked with them about what they covered and how they could help. It was amazing to see how much they cared about my appliances and what they did to keep things running smoothly. Check out this blog for more information on appliance services.

Repairing Your Dishwasher When It Isn't Working Properly: 3 Tips


If you own a dishwasher, you most likely get a lot of use out of it. If you use your dishwasher a lot, when you have a problem, it's going to cause you some problems. Having to do the dishes by hand can take up time in your day and take you away from more important things in your daily life. If you have a problem with your dishwasher, you need to get it repaired right away. Read on for tips to repair your dishwasher.

1. No Water

If your dishwasher isn't washing your dishes with any water at all, you most likely have an issue with the water line going to your dishwasher. If your dishwasher is located next to your sink, look under your sink where the dishwasher line connects to the main water line. Be sure it is connected properly to the main supply, and make sure the water is turned on and didn't get shut off for any reason. Pull the dishwasher out and check the connections at the back of the dishwasher. If the water supply line is damaged at all or the connections are bad, you need to replace them. Replacement parts can be found in the plumbing section at your local hardware store.

2. Water In The Tub

If you have water still in the washtub at the end of the dishwashing cycle, it may be because of a clog in the filter at the base of the dishwasher. To find the clog, you need to first drain the water out, which you can do with a cup or a bowl. Once the water is removed, you can use your hands to remove anything clogged at the base. If you can't feel or see anything, you may need to remove the sprayer hands and then inspect the filter or the drain below the filter. Remove anything clogging the drain, then try to run another cycle.

3. No Power

If you don't have power to your dishwasher, it isn't going to run at all. Check the connection at the back as well as the outlet that the dishwasher is plugged into. Check that the outlet has power and that the fuse didn't blow to that outlet. If the outlet isn't the issue, you can try to run an extension cord to the dishwasher and attempt to plug it into a different outlet to see if this helps. If that didn't do anything and you don't see any visible issues with the power cord itself, it's time to call an appliance repairman for help.

If your dishwasher isn't running properly, you'll be doing dishes by hand again, which will take up time in your day. Call an appliance repair company, such as Premier Service of New York Inc, to help you repair your dishwasher for you.
