Let this be a note of warning to you that for you to avoid death or severe injury, ensure that you disconnect the appliances from power before carrying out any repairs. Do not forget to turn off the gas which is at the source before making preparation for any gas appliances. Another thing you need to always remember is that before any repairing, put on safety glasses whenever you are using tools. Cover your hair and do not put on loose clothing whenever you are around the moving machine. All the above safety will be helpful to you whenever you are repairing any appliances.
Here are some troubleshooting for your dishwasher repair:
When your dishwasher is not working:
It could be as a result of no power in the dishwasher. To resolve this issue, ensure that the power is getting connected to the dishwasher. Also do not forget to examine if the tripped circuit breaker or fuse is still intact. Examine the socket on the wall if there is power supply. Also check if the power cord has not unplugged from the dishwasher and if this is the problem, you need to repair the wire or change it.
The dishwasher could stop working as a result of the door switch. If this is the case, it needs replacement.
It could be as a result of timer. This problem is not common. It needs replacement.
If your dishwasher is not working, it problem could be as a result of selector switch. It needs replacement.
If the dishwasher is running and the dish does not clean:
This could be as a result of lack of water. Therefore, ensure that the dishwater has water. Do not forget to check if the water shut off valve is not closed. The water valve is usually found under the sink. But if you put water inside the dish and the problem still persist during the cycle, the problem could come from faulty water valve, this shows that eh water valve has to be changed.
The problem could be as a result of insufficient water. If the water is not sufficient inside the dishwasher, the dishes will not clean. It could also be as a result of half closed water shut-off valve or faulty dishwasher water valve.
If the dish does not clean, it could be because of clogged spray arm. There are two to three spray arms in a dishwasher. Therefore, ensure that all debris that could block the spray arms holes is cleared off.
When the dishwasher is working and could not clean any dishes, it could be as a result of low water temperature. What you need to do in order to rectify this problem is to make sure that the water is at 1200F when inside the dishwasher.
It could be due to the problem of insufficient soap. When you fill a part of the soap cup, then this problem may occur, therefore, try as much as you can to add soap to every parts.
It could also be as a result of smoky film on the dishes and glasses. This is because of the too much calcium that has been build inside the dishwasher. By applying a dishwasher cleaner, the problem could be solved.
When the dishwasher refuse to drain:
Check the air gap if clogged. Loose the top lid and find out if there is any blockage. I want you to note that if air gap is not found, then the draining will not be efficient. But if the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher will not drain and if the air gap is installed inside the dishwasher, the hose that comes from the air gap to garbage disposer could be clogged. For you to solve the problem, displace and tidy the hose. Ensure that you attach the hose again before you turn on the dishwasher.
