Common Dishwasher Problems

Here are some issues that you should watch out for.

Water Not Pumping Out

A worn-out drain solenoid, a worn-out impeller, or a clogged drain line can cause the water not to fully pump out of the unit.

Dishwasher Not Filling Up

A malfunctioning overflow float switch, a bad timer, a failed valve, or a malfunctioning water inlet solenoid are the most common causes for a dishwasher not filling up with water.


Some issues that can cause a dishwasher to leak include a leaky pump or motor assembly, worn-out spray arm assemblies, or worn-out door gaskets. Another cause for this problem, that most people wouldn’t even think of, is using too much soap or soap that is not compatible with the appliance.

A Humming Noise

If your dishwasher is making a humming noise before turning off, it is indicative of a motor that is broken and needs to be replaced.

A Wash Cycle That Is Lasting Longer Than It Should

A bad timer or thermostat can cause your dishwasher to have a problem completing cycles. These parts are going to cause the dishwasher not to know when the cycle is complete so it continues to run.

Cloudy Glassware After Washing

This is a problem that is not usually linked to something that is wrong with the dishwasher. Many times, cloudy glassware is caused by hard water (this can be addressed by installing a water softener in your home) or because the glassware wasn’t properly rinsed before being put into the dishwasher. Our repair technicians can work with you to figure this out.

Dishes Not Clean After Cycle Is Complete

This is a frustrating problem to have, but our technicians can figure it out. The most common causes for the dishes not being properly cleaned, even after the cycle has been completed, are a worn-out pump assembly, clogged spray holes, a worn out wash impeller, or a burned-out heating element.

Doing Your Own Repairs

Some people are confident in their skills and knowledge that they may be able to handle some of the basic issues themselves. Many parts inside the dishwasher can be easily removed, bought, and replaced as a unit. If you have decided to do your own repairs but are unsure if a part is functional or not, a professional can test the part for you so then you can decide how to proceed.

There are a couple of things that you will want to remember like removing the fuse in the circuit breaker that powers the dishwasher. Also, you have to remember that the dishwasher is hooked up to the plumbing and electrical systems of your home. Make sure that the dishwasher is completely unplugged, and the water supply is shut off before you proceed with any repairs.
