Why did it break down?
There are scores and scores of scenarios as to what could be wrong with your dishwasher and just as many, if not more causes, for those problems. The pump, the wash arm, or the spray arm might be faulty. The door latch, switch, or the gasket might be malfunctioning. If it’s not one of these parts, it could be the water inlet, float, float switch, the heating element, or the thermostat.
Whatever the source of malfunction may be, it’s absolutely crucial that you get a pro to handle the repair, because handling appliance repairs on your own is going to cost you more and take longer. Besides if you don’t have the necessary training, handling electrical repairs is a shocking hazard. So, not only do you risk further inadvertent damages, but you are also risking your safety.
Common problems, troubleshooting, and repair
When the spray arms have insufficient pressure, your dishes won’t get adequately cleaned. The gasket would need to be cleaned, or if it’s damaged, replaced. Often one of the spray arms can get clogged. If that happens, it’s usually better to install new ones in their place.
If your food chopper is faulty, the food will find its way into the spray arms and get stuck back on the dishes. If the chopper isn’t the issue, it’s probably the inlet valve which needs replacement.
The water supply is often disrupted because of a malfunctioning water inlet valve. The solenoid which supplies the inlet power would need to be tested, and if the power flow is continuous, then you’ll need a new water inlet valve.
The float controls the water inlet valve to keep it from overflowing the dishwasher. If the float or the float switch aren’t working, your dishwasher will not fill. If the door latch doesn’t close properly, the dishwasher won’t start. So, a dishwasher with a faulty latch won’t fill either.
The pump – which gives spray arms clean water, and pumps the dirty water out, is secured in its place with a gasket. When it wears out, the pump will leak. There’s also a gasket on your dishwasher door, if it’s damaged, old, or worn out, the door will leak.
Should I consider a replacement?
The lifespan of a dishwasher largely depends on its make and model, its maintenance, and how often you use it. With careful usage and regular maintenance, your dishwasher should last you up to a decade. If it’s any older, consider swapping it for a new one. You can help you choose a suitable replacement and get it set up.
