It’s best not to wait until your dishwasher has completely stopped working before investing in a new one. But how do you know what it is time to replace it? The truth is that you might just need dishwasher repair. If you notice any of the following issues, you can contact American Appliance Repair to see if repair is necessary or if it is time to replace it.
Your Dishes Aren’t as Clean as They Used to Be
If your dishes no longer come out of the dishwasher sparkling clean, then it could be time to replace your unit. However, it could also be as simple as a soap dispenser that isn’t opening or a spray arm that is not working correctly. Both of those issues can be repaired relatively inexpensively, so be sure to call for service before you deciding that replacement is necessary.
There Are Strange Noises Coming from Your Dryer
If you notice unusual noises coming from your dryer, this is a sign that your dishwasher might have a faulty pump or motor. Both of these can be repaired or replaced. They are smaller than other internal parts and generally not very expensive. However, if it is caused by something else, then you might need to replace the entire dishwasher.
You Notice Water Leaking
Water should never leak from your dishwasher. If it does, if you notice puddles after the cycle is doing, then you could be dealing with something minor that can be repaired easily, such as a damaged door gasket, or it could be a crack in the dishwasher that would require it to be replaced altogether.
Your Dishwasher is Not Draining Properly
If you find that there is still standing water at the bottom of your dishwasher after a cycle, this could be a sign that your dishwasher needs to be replaced. It could also be something as simple as your drain being clogged – a professional appliance repair person can determine the issue for you.
The Door Doesn’t Latch Properly
This is often a simple and affordable fix to the door latch. However, in some cases, it can be a more complex issue that affects your entire dishwasher. In older models, even if it is just the latch, the already short lifespan means that the repair is not always worth it.
