For many, dishwashers are an important part in keeping our kitchens running smoothly, and when they start having problems it can cause serious headache. Having any appliance in our home show problems can be stressful. And when it’s one we use on a daily basis, it can be even worse. When our dishwashers start smelling bad, leaking, or just not running how they used to, it can be hard to know if it’s time to let it go. If you’re having problems with your dishwasher we’ve got a few ways to help you determine if you can save it, if it’s time to say goodbye, and, if necessary, who can help with your dishwasher removal.

Common Problems and Easy Fixes

In many homes dishwashers are everyday appliances. Without proper cleaning and care or with general wear and tear over time our dishwashers can face some pretty common problems. Knowing a quick fix to these problems can save you from the annoying and pricey process of getting rid of your dishwasher and having to find a new one. So, what are some of the most common dishwasher problems, and how can you fix them at home, with minimal repairs?

If you’re dishwasher isn’t draining there’s a good chance it has a clogged drain or filter. Checking for any food or objects lodged in the dishwasher’s drain and filter is the first step. If there is anything visibly blocking or stuck in the drain or filter, clean it out. If you cannot see anything a good clean may help unclog it. You can try running a vinegar or baking soda solution through the dishwasher which may help unclog it. Clogs are common, but preventable by regularly cleaning the drain and filter, and ensuring no chucks of food or other objects go into the dishwasher.

Leaky dishwashers can be frustrating, but in many cases there is an easy fix. Leaks can come from a few different places in your dishwasher including the pump, door, connecting hoses, and pipes. If the pipes, hoses, or pump, is leaking it will most likely need to be replaced. When water is leaking from the door check and see if the seal is damaged, as that is the most likely cause. If damaged, the seal will most likely need to be replaced to stop leakage. Some more common parts like the hoses may be available at a Home Depot near you, more specific parts can be found on Repair Clinic and other sites.

Smelly dishwashers are one of the most common and most annoying problems we can face with this appliance. Having your dishwasher stink up the kitchen while you’re trying to get dishes clean is less than ideal. Dishwashers can begin to smell due to food buildup in the filter or in some cases mold or mildew buildup. Cleaning out your dishwasher’s filter by removing it and scrubbing it with soapy water can help get rid of odors. Thoroughly wiping down the inside of your dishwasher with cleaner or vinegar can also help by removing any buildup or mildew that is adding to the nasty smell.

Who to Call When Your Dishwasher is Beyond Repair

Small problems like leaking and smelliness can usually be fixed at home or with a simple repair. However, there come a point when your dishwasher may need to go.
