Using The Right Products For Your Appliances

Signs That Your Dishwasher Is In Need Of Professional Repairs

by Brent Hart

If you are lucky enough to have a dishwasher, you are going to want to do whatever you can to keep it in the best shape possible. This includes knowing the warning signs of impending trouble so that you can call in an appliance repair technician as soon as possible. To help you with this, you will want to review the following signs of dishwasher trouble.

The Water Is Not Fully Draining

Once the dishwasher has ran through all of its cycles, it should be bone dry. Therefore, if you notice a puddle of water still at the bottom of the dishwasher when you go to retrieve your dishes, you have a problem. It is not draining properly, which means it is harder for the appliance to properly dry your dishes, as there is still a sufficient amount of moisture left in the unit. It is also a sign that your dishes might not be as clean as you would like. Either way, you need an appliance repair technician to replace the drain line or remove a clog that could be causing the problem.

The Dishes Will Not Dry

Not everyone uses the drying function of the dishwasher and prefer to save energy by letting everything air dry. Even if this is something that you like to do, you will want to occasionally make use of the drying cycle so that you will know whether it is still working properly. If you use the drying function and find that your dishes still come out wet, even if they are just a little bit wet, you have a problem with the dishwasher. It could be that the heater is not working properly so there is nothing more than cold air blowing around in there. It could be that there is a problem with the fan. Either way, a skilled appliance repair technician needs to check it out as quickly as possible.

It Takes Longer To Switch Between The Cycles Than Ever Before

Do not make the mistake of assuming that it is normal for a dishwasher to take longer to switch from one cycle to the next because it is getting older. Should you notice that this is happening, you will want an appliance repair technician to take a look at it. There could be a delay because of some wiring problems or a malfunctioning motor. Either way, it needs looked at and repaired before the delay takes so long that you are no longer able to properly use the appliance.

With those few signs of trouble in mind, you should be able to recognize when to call an appliance repair technician like All-American Appliance for your dishwasher.
