The latest dishwashers have complex looking controls – with so many push buttons, dials and additional features, it isn’t a surprise that many people are scared off troubleshooting their dishwasher by themselves, and call in a professional appliance repairman at the first sign of trouble. This complexity, however, is superficial, since the fundamental design of the dishwasher hasn’t changed in the past twenty years. You can fix some of the basic problems yourself if you know where to look for in case of a problem. At Appliance Repair Pros we are here to help, so before you call and have us come out, follow some of these steps below to see if you can solve the problem for yourself. Of course, if you are in a rush we proved SAME DAY Service.
Dishwasher parts can be replaced as separate units, which is normally simpler and less costly. If you are in doubt about a parts usability, take it to a professional to get it tested. Based on their advice, you can opt for replacing it with a new one, or have it repaired.
Before you open up your dishwasher, however, you can run the following basic checks to root out any elementary problems:
- Ensure that the dishwasher is receiving electric power.
- If it is plugged into a wall outlet, check its cord, the plug and also the outlet to ascertain that they are operational. In addition to this, check the control switch on the outlet to make sure that it is in the ‘on’ state. Many inbuilt dishwashers are connected to a circuit directly, so you should check the main panel for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse, and restore the main circuit if needed. If your house is an old one, the dishwasher may be connected to an independent panel entrance – check for a tripped breaker or blown fuse here in this case, and restore the circuit as needed.
- Having ascertained that the circuit is powered on, if you are still experiencing trouble, you’ll need to check the switch for a fault. Use a voltage tester for this. Remove the switch’s cover plate and put one tester probe in one terminal and the other one in the other terminal. If the bulb of the tester lights up, the switch is working fine. If not, the switch is the problem and has to be replaced.
- Ensure that the door is closed and latched properly. The dishwasher should not work until the latch has been correctly engaged. To test the latch, close and latch the washer’s door while holding the latch securely in its place. Then, with the latch still pressed closed, put the control knob in the ‘ON’ position. If the dishwasher still functions, it means that the latch has a fault and needs to be replaced, tightened, or at the very least, cleaned.
- Ensure that water is being supplied and that its temperature is sufficiently high. If a breakdown occurs in the water heater, it could suspend the dishwasher’s water flow. Check the hot water in the bathroom or kitchen sink. If you are able to draw hot water, it is likely that the water heater isn’t the culprit.
- Ensure that the controls on the panel are set properly. The push-button controls present on the newer models can be quite sensitive, so you should make certain that they are pressed firmly in position.
If you’ve followed the basic diagnostic procedure described above and there is still a fault, it is time to open up your dishwasher. If you aren’t comfortable with tools, you can give your local dishwasher repair company a call.
