Dishwasher Problems and Troubles

Dishwasher Repair in Port Elizabeth
Dishwasher not dispensing detergent

When opening a Dishwasher in anticipation of clean sterile dishes and cutlery but instead  the dishes are cover with smears and stain marks. That is a major let-down! 
Dishwasher are great machines when they work. . . . ! but when it starts giving inconstant results, it becomes a huge source of frustration. 
Lately we have been receiving a lot of inquiries about dishwashers giving inconsistent cleaning results. I have highlighted some of the most common problems my clients have with their dishwasher and possible solutions. 

Cutlery and Dishes has a stain residue on them when washed 
Most people use their dishwasher on after dinner and the machine remains close for the night then the following happens

  • Steam then tends to condensate on cutlery if dishwasher is left closed - leaving residue marks

Ø  Dishwashers should be opened after 20 minutes program has ended - allowing hot air and steam to escape
Ø  When dishwasher cycle is finished machine should at least be left closed for another 10 minutes

Detergent powder is not dissolving
·        Check spray arms for blockages in the little end jets
·        Was the dispenser chamber dry before inserting cube/powder
·        Was the cutlery and dishes pack so that it could have prevented the soap dispenser flap from opening

Dishes remaining wet at end of cycle
·        Dishes must be arranged so no water puddles are formed on cutlery
·        No salt in Dishwasher result in;
o   lime scale building-up on heater elements
o   which in turn effects the drying results
§  a descaler should be used to dissolve lime
·        To little rinse aid can also have an effect on the drying result

Dishes has smears and streak marks
Ø  Overdosing of rinse aid will results in streak marks at the end of a cycle 

Once you have tried the above advice and the problem still persists it means the machine has a default some were and you need a professional to open the Dishwasher up.

I do hope you have found some value in this post

Have a streaky-clean-day
