Causes of dishwasher breakdowns

HomeBlogCauses of dishwasher breakdowns

Let’s take a look at the most common problems dishwasher owners face.

Problem #1 – poor wash quality

If your dishwasher does not wash the dishes well and not all the way – look for the causes of “misbehavior”.

Whitish streaks on plates, leftover food smeared on the bottom of pans, glasses that have lost their transparency – all these are signs of poor-quality washing. The cause of poor cleaning is often untimely cleaning of the filters.

It is easier to start checking by inspecting the internal surfaces and parts. You need to unscrew the filters, remove the sprinkler arms, brush everything thoroughly under running water and reinstall.

Problem #2 – there is water inside the housing

A small puddle at the bottom of the washing chamber is a sign that the machine is functioning normally.

A certain amount of water is needed to maintain a certain level of humidity – it keeps rubber seals from drying out and stays elastic longer. But excess water is a signal that the dishwasher is malfunctioning.

The best way out is to invite a specialist from the Poway Appliance Repair Service Center for a detailed diagnosis and selection of the right part.

Problem #3 – Unexpected machine shutdown

A dishwasher that stops working before the end of the cycle is a red flag. An isolated case can be explained by an electronic system failure or a power surge, but regular stoppages most likely indicate a problem with the power supply.

To start with you can apply a restart – press the button “on” after 20-30 seconds. If the washing process has started, the current in the mains has stabilized.

If the network is weak and from time to time there are overloads, it is better to buy a stabilizer – so you will prevent possible failures and thus save the details of the machine.

The cause of a temporary lack of voltage in the network can be electrical installations – outlets, tees, or filters.

The hardest part is when the dishwasher is constantly stopped by the control module with program failures. It is almost impossible to fix it on your own, so it is better to invite a master for diagnosis and repair.

Problem #4 – the machine hums loudly

This is one of the most frequent complaints received from consumers at the time of submitting the dishwasher for repair. The loud noise, not characteristic of a working machine, reports the failure of one of the parts.

There are two main reasons: the circulation pump bearing, which feeds the water, is worn out, or the pump is out of order.

Problem #5 – no foam rinsing out after washing

The process of cleaning dishes is arranged so that first the detergent enters the chamber, then the rinse aid, and at the end, all the residual substances are rinsed off with water.

If at the end of the cycle there is foam residue on the bottom of the chamber, on the walls or baskets – it indicates either improper use of detergents or a malfunction in the settings.

To avoid excessive foaming, you need to study the instructions, remember the dosage, and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.

If the function of using universal tablets is present, but earlier separate agents were put in, it is necessary to change the settings of the dishwasher. How to do this is described in detail in the instructions.

The cause of abundant foam in the bottom of the box can also be a clogged filter. Remains of food serve as an obstacle to the flow of water, especially foam, as a result of which by the end of the cycle some of it remains at the bottom. A simple cleaning of the filter will improve the situation.
