Your Dishes Aren’t as Clean as They Used to Be
If your dishes no longer come out of the
dishwasher sparkling clean, then it could be time to replace your unit.
However, it could also be as simple as a soap dispenser that isn’t opening or a
spray arm that is not working correctly. Both of those issues can be repaired
relatively inexpensively, so be sure to call for service before you deciding
that replacement is necessary.
There Are Strange Noises Coming from Your Dryer
If you notice unusual noises coming from
your dryer, this is a sign that your dishwasher might have a faulty pump or
motor. Both of these can be repaired or replaced. They are smaller than other
internal parts and generally not very expensive. However, if it is caused by
something else, then you might need to replace the entire dishwasher.
You Notice Water Leaking
Water should never leak from your dishwasher. If it does, if you notice puddles after the cycle is doing, then you could be dealing with something minor that can be
, such as a damaged door gasket, or it could be a crack in the dishwasher that would require it to be replaced altogether.
Your Dishwasher is Not Draining Properly
If you find that there is still standing
water at the bottom of your dishwasher after a cycle, this could be a sign that
your dishwasher needs to be replaced. It could also be something as simple as
your drain being clogged – a professional appliance repair person can determine
the issue for you.
The Door Doesn’t Latch Properly
This is often a simple and affordable fix to the door latch. However, in some cases, it can be a more complex issue that affects your entire dishwasher. In older models, even if it is just the latch, the already short lifespan means that the repair is not always worth it.
