Why has your Machine Broken Down?

There can be a variety of reasons why your machine has become faulty. Common causes include the pump assembly, as it can become worn out or leak, or the heating elements in the appliance. The drain line can also develop clogs, and the water inlet valve can also develop defects. If any of these components fail, then they can lead to more serious issues.

This is why it is important to hire an expert repair technician because DIY methods take time, and are unreliable and more expensive. Our professional repair service will prevent you any trouble and save you time and money too!

The Common Problems that Need Repairs

The Water Doesn’t Drain
If this happens to your dishwasher, the issue may be fixed by cleaning the drain screen at the base of your appliance. This problem has most likely been caused by washing unrinsed kitchenware. If this drain is clear, the problem may be caused by the drainpipe or the pump.

A Loud Noise comes from the Machine
This problem is normally caused by housing damage or blockages, which causes loud noises. This will need a technician to repair, as it could be caused by the motor too.

The Dishwasher is Running for Ages and Doesn’t Clean Dishes
If your dishwasher seems to run for ages, then you’ve probably got an issue with the thermostat or timer on your hands. However if dishes are coming out poorly cleaned, then either the spray armholes, impeller, or heating elements have failed.

The Machine Won’t Fill or Over Fills
If the dishwasher starts up but won’t fill, or drains very fast, then the float and the water inlet valve needs servicing. This will involve removing the lower access panel to service the part.

This is a very tricky job and can vary between make and model, and therefore will need the attention of a qualified technician.

Considering Replacement
With the correct care, a quality dishwasher can last 8 years or more! However, at the top end of this estimate, it is likely the machine will start to fail more frequently. Luckily, our team is completely transparent, and once we have assessed your machine we will advise you as to whether a replacement would be more beneficial than multiple repairs.
