Dishwasher Repair & Tips

Left Over Food -

Many of the repairs we do on dishwashers are due to clogs from food left on dishes. You should always scrape off your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.  Oils left on the dishes can cause your pump to get coated and go bad over time. Scraping off your dishes will help avoid costly repairs to your appliance.

Don’t Overload

If you overload your dishwasher, similar to overloading a washer, your dishes will not become clean enough due to inadequate water dispersion. Make sure to properly use the dishwasher rack separators so your dishwasher can clean to the maximum ability.

Fallen Utensils on the Element

There is usually an element inside your dishwasher at the bottom to heat your water and dry the dishes. If plastic utensils drop on this element, they will melt, causing them to get ruined. More importantly though, it could damage the element. Make sure your utensils are properly secure when running your dishwasher.

Water Temperature

For your dishwasher to clean your dishes properly, your water temperature must be at least 120 degrees. It is recommended you run your hot water for about a minute before running your dishwasher so it fills with hot water right off the bat.

As a full service company that offers appliance repair in Salt Lake City Utah, we understand that not having a dishwasher or dryer might not be an “emergency” situation per-se, but it can certainly seem like it when you have stacks of dishes or dirty clothes to tackle. That’s why we treat every service and repair request with urgency.
