Dishwasher Repair Tips
What You Need To Know
To reduce the need of repairs on your Dishwasher, follow the following maintenance tips. Proper care is essential in keeping your dishwasher running efficiently. Improper care will cause your unit to work harder by using more electricity to keep your dishes cleaner than if properly maintained.
Use the Proper Detergent
Do not add more than the recommended amount of detergent. Too much detergent may cause leaks or clog up your dishwasher!
Check The Spray Arm
You can clean the holes in the spray arm of your dishwasher with a toothbrush and a mixture of white vinegar and warm water. Remove all debris and residues. Doing this regularly will remove the stress on the pumps and motor, and prolong the life of the unit.
Make sure that the dishwashers feet are level to prevent out-of-balance operation in the machine that may cause loud noises, wobbling and added wear and tea.
You can run a cup of white vinegar through a complete cleaning cycle of the empty dishwasher. This will gently clean residues, odors and debris from the unit.
Check drain hoses are not impeded from draining. Remove kinks and other stoppages. Improper draining may cause the pump to overheat and burn out - especially if you store things under your cabinets that might interfere with your plumbing.
Check The Filter
If your dishwasher has a filter below the lower spray arm, remove all junk from it and rinse the filter to protect the pump and motor seals. Replace if it has holes. A dirty filter may cause the dishwasher to not drain.
Do not overload your dishwasher. This will result in poor cleaning.
