When it comes to caring for and fixing their own units, we believe that there are times when homeowners need to be able to identify and spot issues and problems with their units before experts can come in and repair them. To this end, we’ve compiled a small list of the 2 most common issues that someone can have with a common household appliance and how what checks you can do to either confirm it or temporarily fix it, and for this week we’ll be focusing on dishwashers! So, stop typing “appliance repair Edmonton” for a quick moment and pay attention!

Problem No. 1: Your Dishes Come Out Dirty!

One of the most common issues that dishwasher repair experts are called in to resolve is the issue regarding dishes coming out of dishwashers still dirty or covered in some sort of oily residue. The whole point of placing your dishes in the dishwasher is to have them come out spick and span without you having to exert too much effort. So, when your dishes do the exact opposite, it is an absolute cause of concern. Before you call on the cavalry, do some easy preliminary checks! Are you overloading your washer? Are you overstacking your dishes? Is there something that is blocking the path of the spray arms? Is there some kind of grease build-up inside your dishwasher’s system? Is your washer’s filter blocked with some kind of debris? If so, give your washer a scrub-over and try running it again!

Problem No. 2: Your Dishwasher is Leaking!

Not only can a leaking dishwasher possibly cause you physical harm by making your kitchen a slippery hazard but can also cause damage to your floor or to other nearby appliances! Quickly check your washer’s door and gasket for any signs of damage! If there are, order a gasket replacement and it should do the job! If there are none, however, dishwasher repair experts point to your unit having a faulty float switch. This mechanism is responsible for monitoring how much water is in your dishwasher so when it breaks, it can cause your dishwasher to take on too much water, hence, leading to some of it leaking out. You can always check the switch and see if there is anything obstructing it and clear it out but when you can’t spot anything obvious, it’s time to call in the experts!
