Who doesn’t love the convenience of a dishwasher? In fact, some might say dishwashers are one of the better inventions in the home. However, if your dishwasher is leaking water onto the floor, isn’t cleaning dishes properly or has a clogged line, it can quickly become a mess-making nuisance.
Following are a few of dishwasher problems you may troubleshoot or your local St. Cloud Roto-Rooter Plumbers can solve:
- Dishwasher is leaking: Worn out door gaskets, spray arm assemblies, tub-to-motor gaskets and a leaking pump assembly are culprits for leaks. Even using too much soap or incompatible soap can cause the dishwasher to leak.
- Dishes not cleaned: Running the dishwasher, yet the dishes aren’t getting cleaned wastes time, water and soap. Dirty dishes may be due to a burned-out heating element, a worn pump assembly, a worn wash impeller or blocked spray armholes.
- Cloudy glassware: Hard water can leave cloudy glassware. You may benefit with a water softener installed by your Roto-Rooter Plumbers. Moreover, make sure glasses are thoroughly rinsed out before placing in the dishwasher.
- Dishwasher not operating: If your dishwasher is not running, and you hear a humming noise, the motor may have seized. St. Cloud Roto-Rooter Plumbers can diagnose a problem motor if this is the issue.
- Water won’t pump out: A worn-out drain impeller, a worn drain solenoid or a clogged drain line can be the reason behind water not fully pumping out of the dishwasher.
- Does not fill with water: Another common problem with dishwashers is that it doesn’t fill with water. Common culprits include a stuck or defective overflow float switch, a defective water inlet solenoid, a failed valve or a malfunctioning timer. Your St. Cloud Roto-Rooter can repair any of these issues.
- Wash cycle runs too long: A defective thermostat or a malfunctioning timer can be behind a wash cycle that runs too long.
