Dishwasher Repair

Basically, a dishwasher is a robot that cleans and rinses dirty dishes. Humans have to load the dishes, add detergent, set the proper washing cycles and turn it on, but the dishwasher accomplishes a whole series of functions by itself.

What Dishwashers Do:

  • Adds water
  • Heats the water to the appropriate temperature
  • Automatically opens the detergent dispenser at the right time
  • Shoots the water through jets to get the dishes clean
  • Drains the dirty water
  • Sprays more water on the dishes to rinse them
  • Drains itself again
  • Heats the air to dry the dishes off, if the user has selected that setting

In addition, dishwashers monitor themselves to make sure everything is running properly. A timer (or a small computer) regulates the length of each cycle. A sensor detects the water and air ≠temperature to prevent the dishwasher from overheating or damaging your dishes. Another sensor can tell if the water level gets too high and activates the draining function to keep the dishwasher from overflowing. Some dishwashers even have sensors that can detect the dirtiness of the water coming from the dishes. When the water is clear enough, the dishwasher knows the dishes are clean.

Top 5 Reasons Dishwashers Don’t Clean Properly

  1. Water not hot enough – it should be at least 140 degrees.
  2. Old detergent that is not melting.
  3. Not properly draining due to a plugged drain or plugged air gap.
  4. Large objects obstructing the wash arms so they can not rotate properly.
  5. Too much soap.  Over time the excess soap can build up and cause trouble.  Run the machine empty and check mid cycle to see if there is evidence of soap in the water.   If so repeat until the excess is gone.
