Common Issues

Some common dishwasher issues requiring repair include:

  • A dishwasher that won’t drain

  • A dishwasher that leaks from the bottom or from around the door

  • A dishwasher that won’t turn on

  • A dishwasher door that won’t latch

  • A noisy dishwasher

  • Dishes that are still dirty after a dishwasher cleaning cycle

  • A dishwasher that isn’t drying dishes properly after the wash cycle

  • A dishwasher that isn’t dispensing dish detergent as it should

  • A unit that doesn’t fill up with water
