Before you run out and call us or another appliance repair technician, there are some steps you can take to fix the issue yourself.
Dishwasher Appliance Soap Dispenser Not Working?
If you find that your soap, either the powder, liquid, or capsule you use, isn’t fully used up in the normal cycle of the dishwasher, that could be a sign that your dispenser needs to be adjusted.
Your dishwasher is saying “Go! Go! Go!” but that faulty dispenser is saying “Meh, when I’m ready”. Your dirty dishes are the ones that suffer. You can clean out the soap gunk in the latch and reset the spring in the dispenser, allowing it to come out much easier.
Too Much Water in The Bottom of Your Appliance?
If you find that you have too much water in the bottom of your dishwasher, there’s and easy DIY solution. If you leave it, it could spill water outside of the appliance and cause nasty damage to the kitchen flooring.
Remove your bottom tray for better access. You’ll see what looks like an upside-down basket. That filter helps bigger particles stay out of the drain. It gets clogged with grease and food, so every once in a while, take it out, rinse it and clean it, and put it back.
Is Your Dishwasher Appliance Leaking?
If you still have some puddles after a cycle is complete, that could be due to an old gasket with an improper seal. You can absolutely do this repair at home, removing that old rubber seal and replace it with a new, shiny, well-fitted gasket.
Once we can determine the cost of the repair, allow us to do an estimate on your dishwasher repair and we’ll clear up the price discrepancy and whether it’s convenient to simply replace the unit altogether.
