Dishwashers are complex machines that need to be treated and maintained properly. Like any other appliance, there are a few issues that homeowners will need to be able to address.
1. If your dishes aren’t coming out sparkling
There are a couple of reasons why your dishwasher may not be cleaning items as effectively as it should. If you overload it or incorrectly locate certain items like trays and flatware, it could lead to cleaning deficiencies. Mix up the directions of your flatware and to make sure that surfaces are exposed to allow water and detergent to reach them. If you're still having issues, look at your sprayer arms and clean any buildup.
2. If you find water outside of your dishwasher
All homeowners fear leaks, but fixing them can be easy. It could just be a defective pump or seal, but if a hose is cracked or damaged, these items will need to be replaced. Call a plumbing expert if you're having trouble identifying where the leak is coming from or are unsure how to address it.
3. If you are hearing something you should not be hearing
Dishwashers can be loud, but if you are hearing abnormal sounds or if it's louder than usual, there could be a problem. Check to see that the spray arms are turning properly or if they need to be replaced. It's also possible that you have a defective pump or need to replace the wash arm seal or bearing ring.
