Why did it break down?

There’s a lot of things that can go wrong with a dishwasher, like an appliance that is connected to water and electricity at the same time that’s a granted. A few common issues we see are leaks from the pump assembly, heating elements have worn out and visible damage to the structure. If left unattended, one issue can quickly become two, three or even four separate issues, costing you more in the long run.

DIY repair attempts can cost you time, effort and on many occasions can void your warranty if something goes wrong. While DIY may seem a viable option, more often than not it causes further damage to your appliance that will need professional repairs in the end.

By hiring Scott’s Appliance Repair you can avoid the headache and have your appliance repaired quickly, without breaking the bank.

Common problems, troubleshooting, and repair

Water isn’t draining

If water does not drain from your dishwasher it could be that there’s a problem with the drain. It could be blocked or faulty. However, you should ensure your dishes are rinsed before loading the appliance. If the drain seems fine, it could be the pump or drainpipe.

Strange noises from the machine?

Although dishwashers make some noise, if the housing is damaged or a motor is jammed, it can cause strange humming noises. This isn’t a DIY problem and will require a professional repair company to come out and take a look.

Cycles last too long and dishes aren’t clean

If your dishwasher’s cycles are taking too long, it could be that your timer or thermostat are having issues. If your dishware is not clean at the end of a cycle, the issue could exist within the heating elements, impeller or spray armholes.

Dishwasher doesn’t fill up or fills continuously

If you’re having an issue where your dishwasher isn’t filling, it could be that the float or inlet valve needs replacement or deep cleaning. Usually, this can be accessed through removing a panel and replacing the part.

The inlet valve replacement isn’t a DIY job and will need professionals to take a look.

Should you consider a replacement?

Dishwashers generally last around 8 to 10 years. Without care and maintenance, it can be much less. When the appliance is reaching the end of life, you’ll notice many issues. If we think that a replacement will be more cost-effective than repairs, we’ll let you know. We always provide an honest and friendly service with a smile.
