Broken Dishwasher? We’ve Got a Solution

When it comes to dishwasher repair in Fairfax, Va., the most frequent problem we come across is dishwasher not cleaning dishes. You load the dishes, maybe even pre-rinse, then run the cycle, but upon completion the dishes come out not much cleaner than before they went in.

What’s wrong with my dishwasher? There are several reasons why your dishwasher might be failing to clean your dishes:

  • Not following the dishwasher manual: overloading the dishwasher, using wrong detergent, placing dishes incorrectly, etc. Try running a cycle exactly the way manual recommends – if this doesn’t help then you have more serious problems.
  • Not enough water: it’s possible your water supply got interrupted at some point. The cause could be anything from a leaking water line to a stuck float switch.
  • Blocked spray arm: it’s easy for a piece of food or other debris to block opening in the spray arm. That’s why it’s important to only wash items that are dishwasher safe.
  • Many of these problems are quite easy to solve. Our specialists in dishwasher repair in Fairfax, Va., will be happy to assist you. If you attempt any do-it-yourself troubleshooting, make sure your dishwasher is unplugged.
