Dishwasher Installation & Repair in Tampa, FL
Is your dishwasher giving you trouble? Don’t wait for little problems to add up to big ones; take action immediately. The sooner you identify the need for a professional to repair your dishwasher, the less it’s likely to cost you (and the less likely your dishwasher is to cause damages to other parts of your home through leaks or electrical issues).
Signs Your Dishwasher Needs Repair
The symptoms of a dishwasher that needs attention can be subtle, but once issues begin to arise, you’re probably not far off from worse problems. Here are some of the most common signs we see bring in customers:
- Dishes are less/not clean. If your dishwasher isn’t cleaning dishes as well as it used to, it probably needs some attention.
- Water spots. Assuming you’re using a rinse aid regularly, frequent water spots can be a sign of trouble with the rinse cycle.
- Strange noises. If you notice new noises from your dishwasher, it’s important to figure out why.
- Leaks. Leaks are perhaps the most worrying problem from a dishwasher, as they can cause electrical problems, water damage, pests, mold growth, and more.
- Dishes come out cold. If your dishes aren’t being heated in the wash cycle as they should be, then they may not be properly sterilized.
- Latch isn’t working right. Even if your dishwasher can run with a broken latch, it’s a risky habit.
- Water collecting. If water isn’t draining from the bottom of your dishwasher, it or the drains further along have problems.
Signs Your Dishwasher Should be Replaced
Not every dishwasher problem lends itself to repair. If you see these signs, it may be time to ask about replacement with a new model.
- Multiple issues in a row. A dishwasher that needs frequent repairs rarely becomes less of a problem over time; you may have a lemon, if it’s new, or it may just be too old.
- Repair costs approach the cost of replacement. If you need repairs and they’re going to cost you a significant chunk of what a new dishwasher might, it’s a good reason to consider going ahead and replacing.
- Inefficiency or inefficacy due to technology or wear. Older dishwashers are less efficient than newer ones, even if they’re using the same technology; repairs can’t erase all of the wear and tear of time.
- Missing newer features you want. If you want new features, that’s a great reason to start thinking of replacement instead of repair.
- Physical damage or rust. If rust or cracks start showing up, your dishwasher may be on its last legs regardless of anything else, as these can be difficult to repair or signs of extreme age.
Benefits of Having a New Dishwasher
If you do consider upgrading, there’s a lot you stand to gain other than just resolving current issues. New models offer improvements over their predecessors in a number of areas, including:
- Efficiency. Modern units can use less water and less electricity to achieve the same results.
- Power. Newer units can also frequently get the job done faster and more thoroughly than predecessors. Some can even achieve this while also being more efficient.
- Quiet operation. Tired of the dog running to hide while the dishwasher runs? Newer units can run far quieter.
Why Have a Pro Repair Your Dishwasher?
If you’re comfortable with DIY, you may be tempted to try to repair your dishwasher with the help of YouTube videos or other how-to guides. This is frequently a step along the path to calling a professional with an even bigger problem than you started with — however, even if you have the know-how and tools available, there are still reasons to consider entrusting it to a pro.
If a professional doesn’t get the job done correctly, then they have to come back and fix it. If you get it wrong, you’re still on the hook to fix it right.
Fixing a dishwasher correctly also matters a lot to its longevity, how well it cleans your dishes, and how likely it is to cause unexpected damages to your home. You’re dealing with water and electricity, two big threats if handled improperly.
