If your dishwasher is giving you fits and in need of a repair, we can help. Sometimes it is something simple, such as a clogged filter and sometimes it is much more complex. It could also be how you load the dishwasher as well, depending on how the water is dispersed. But, we can take a look and let you know what needs to be fixed. Dishwashers used to be pretty simple. However, like all of our other appliances, they have become more complex over time. If you have a puddle in front, this could be a seal or a broken line or hose. You will need to have a professional appliance repair technician take a look and see what the options are.
Common dishwasher problems:
- The dishwasher is not heating up.
- The dishwasher not turning on.
- It is not turning off at random.
- There is soap everywhere.
- The door won’t stay shut or it won’t open.
- There is water coming out of it.
- The dishes are not getting clean.
Service and MaintenanceThere are a few things that you can do to make your dishwasher perform at its best: The spray arm of your dishwasher can be clogged after years of use. Use a brush or a rough side of a sponge to clear out the holes to get the proper water flow. If you machine has a removable filter (check the user manual), clean it thoroughly. Make sure it is free from cuts or holes, otherwise the filter has to be replaced. With regular maintenance, your dishwasher machine can last for years to come.
My Maytag washer wasn’t spinning, so I called NC Appliance Repair an hour before they closed. Alex indicated they couldn’t come out that night, but would be out between 10-12 the next day. Alex called me around 9 and asked if he could come out within the next half hour. I was home and said yes. Alex showed up when he said he would and was quick and courteous. I had a defective drum capacitor and he had the part with him. He explained the issue and presented me with (what I considered) a reasonable price. He even found a manual that was still inside the machine and showed me that I could use it to self-diagnose some issues in the future. His service as well as the 90 day guarantee on parts and labor make this a no-brainer for washing machine repairs. Thanks Alex!
