Dishwasher Repairs Aren’t As Complicated As They Seem.
Dishwashers really appear to have come a long way. They now have dozens of buttons and dials on them and are mounted in the cabinets unlike their old, free standing versions. With all of these new advances many people are afraid to work on or do any dishwasher repairs, in fear that the repair will also be far more complex than it used to be. This isn’t the case. While these new dishwashers have more buttons and cycles and look really fancy, once you get them open they are very much the same as their older counterparts.
The best part about dishwasher repairs is that most of the components of the dishwasher are in a unit that can be removed and replaced. This makes do-it-yourself repairs much easier and far less complicated.
There are several problems that could lead to dishwasher repairs and also several things that you can do to avoid them in the first place. One of the most important parts of a dishwasher is its motor. You can minimize dishwasher repairs on the motor by keeping the sprayer arms, drains and pumps clean. This will allow the motor to run with minimal effort. If you begin to have problems with the dishwasher motor however you should not try to tackle it yourself. Before calling a professional you should check the power supply and the timer. These two components can make the dishwasher react as if there is a problem with the motor.
Things you can repair at home however, include: the water pump, leaks, valves, heating element and doors/switches. The water pump is generally located below the lower sprayer arm, which will need to be taken off for service. Service on this part of the dishwasher simply requires you removing all of the components and cleaning them. You will also want to check the parts for wear and possibly replace them if necessary. Doing dishwasher repairs on almost any part of your dishwasher will be very similar to this.
Other tips include checking the fittings and valves for leaks and making sure the timer works properly, otherwise the cycles will be all thrown off.
