Dishwasher Repair Chesapeake Virginia

Depending on who you ask, a working dishwasher means less work and more time for other things. But if the machine stops working, it’s inconvenient and dishes pile up in the sink to where you either have to call for repair, or buy a new dishwasher.

Dishwasher repair requires knowledge of your unit, not a general idea of the process. That’s because each machine tries its hand at reinventing the wheel, so to speak. Fortunately, Greenbrier Appliance Repair is right around the corner and we can make it over before more dishes pile up.

One thing common to all dishwashers is draining issues. Every drain hose on every dishwasher will clog at some point. The result is a machine that won’t drain. It sounds like it’s draining, but the water remains.

Look for a buildup of food at the end of the drain hose nearest the house drain. Check the end connected to the garbage disposal, or at the connection to the inline house drain.

Also, look for the main filter on the bottom of the inside, near the lower spray arm. They usually unscrew from the base. Clean this and check the drain function again.

You may also have a clog in the drain pump area, which is also a common source of draining issues.

You’re getting into areas where, unless you know what you’re doing, you should leave this repair to the pros at Greenbrier Appliance Repair.

Have you installed a new garbage disposal and now the dishwasher won’t drain? This is a common problem, and you can solve it by confirming that you removed the knockout plug before hooking up the drain hose. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anybody you forgot.
