IMPORTANT: Do not try to use your own skills and get involved in any dishwasher repairs that you are not familiar and experienced with. Ninety-nine percent of the time when you repair dishwasher you deal with water and electricity and if you don’t know what you are doing this could be a dangerous mix. It could literally kill you! Do not take chances with your safety. The information below is strictly for educational purposes. We strongly encourage you not to getting involved with any dishwasher repairs on your own. All dishwasher repairs demand experience and professional training with gas or electrical systems and can become very dangerous if you don’t have the knowledge for repairs.
When your Dishwasher fails to go on
Cause: Dishwasher door is not locked
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Open the door and lock it again, making sure it is shut and the latch handle is pushed all the way to "start".
Cause: Cycle-selector button is not fully depressed
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Make sure the desired cycle button is pushed in all the way.
Cause: Electric failure
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Check the fuse or circuit breaker of the circuit servicing the dishwasher. If the circuit breaker keeps tripping or the fuse keeps blowing, you probably have a malfunction in the home's electric wiring. If the dishwasher is a portable model, determine if the failure is caused by a faulty line cord. Also make sure that the wall outlet is "live".
Cause: Defective door switch
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Check If there is a button on the doorway, press it. You should hear an audible "click." If not, replace the switch. Some models have the switch beneath the lower-access panel doorway. Remove the panel and latch the door to see if this switch is activated.
Cause: Wires have come loose or are parted from terminals
Easy dishwasher repair solution: This is possible in time, because a certain amount of vibration is created when a dishwasher operates. Check all wire terminals to see that they are tightly capped or taped. Most dishwashers have wires terminating at a junction box. This may be beneath the door panel or beneath the lower access panel. Generally, both panels can be unscrewed and removed.
If your dishwasher doesn’t clean the dishes
Cause: The water is not hot enough
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Check water temperature at a hot water tap with a thermometer. The temperature should be 140°-160°F. If the temperature is too low, raise it if possible by increasing the setting on the thermostat of your hot water heater. If you live in an apartment where you have no control over water temperature, you will have to complain to the janitor
Cause: Dishes not properly prepared
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Some foodstuffs, such as cooked egg, are not soluble in hot water. These should be rinsed from dishes before they are placed in the dishwasher. It is also a good practice to scrape particles of food from dishes prior to placing them in the unit. If your appliance is equipped with a filter screen that catches food particles, see that it is clean.
Cause: Dishes not stacked correctly
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Dishes should face the direction of spray for thorough cleaning. See that they don't touch each other. Proper spacing assures that water will spread itself over the whole time make sure the dishes didn’t block the detergent door.
Cause: Insufficient detergent, old detergent or the wrong kind of detergent
Use only an approved dishwasher detergent. Detergents for clothes washers won't work. Detergent that has been kept too long loses potency. Use fresh detergent. If you live in an area that has "hard" water, you will probably have to use more detergent than otherwise.
Cause: Spray arm is blocked
Easy dishwasher repair solution: Check to see if a dish or utensil is preventing spray arm movement.
