Dishwasher Repair Chesterfield Virginia
Dishwashers no longer carry the stigma of being noisy and sloppy machines that leak and do a poor job of washing dishes. Today, they’re expected to perform well and without concern about performance or efficiency. That’s quite a difference from how it was only a few years ago.
Dishwasher repair today still has its challenges, but they’re well built, and when we make a repair, it’s more likely now the repair holds and the time between service grows longer.
That’s an indication of the quality of these newer units. As much as the manufacturers have redesigned their products to run longer and more efficiently, they also have more complicated designs that only trained technicians can properly troubleshoot and repair.
Fortunately, our technicians have committed themselves to staying ahead of the game by updating their knowledge and training to meet any challenge that may arise.
One of the most common problems with every dishwasher is a clogged drain. Many times it’s as simple as cleaning out the base filter inside the machine or the drain hose. Other times, it’s a matter of digging deeper into the drain system where we might find a broken drain pump impeller or a sump that has too much back pressure preventing the drain function from working.
Newer designs sometimes present a challenge, but in any case, we’re knowledgeable about the possibilities and we’ll find and repair the cause quickly.
Here’s a tip to consider when you install a new garbage disposal. Be sure to thoroughly follow the dishwasher manufacturer’s instructions. There’s a knockout plug inside the nipple that connects to the drain hose from your dishwasher. If that knockout is still there when you run the dishwasher, it will not drain. It’s something to keep in mind when you’re troubleshooting a sudden drain problem after installing a garbage disposal.
