3 Common Dishwasher Problems and Solutions

Modern dishwashers give clear information about faults on the display, via error codes. These are detailed in the user manual. We’ll describe the most common malfunctions encountered by dishwasher owners. Their elimination will be easier than you think.

Standing Water In the Bottom Of Your Dishwasher

If there is water not draining after the wash cycle, try restarting it first, it may start pumping water out on its own.

If not, disassemble and clean the waste filter in the bottom of the dishwasher. The last option is to drain the water manually.

Like the supply hose, the drain hose can easily become blocked. Check it and clean it if necessary. Then clean the filter and the drain pump below it. They often get clogged with food debris, so you need to pay special attention to them and it is recommended to clean them regularly, not just when the water stops draining.

Water leaking into the central (control) unit or out of the dishwasher

Most modern dishwashers are equipped with a safety device that shuts them off when water begins to leak. In any case, turn off the dishwasher, drain the water, and dry it. Water leakage can be caused by a clogged drain hose, a damaged pump, or a faulty door seal.

Simply clean the clogged hose and door seal. Regularly clean or replace the door seal if it is cracked or visibly worn.

Dishwasher that leaves dirty dishes

The dishwasher stops being a helper when, after a wash cycle, you pull out the dirty dishes, with grease stains and leftover food, accompanied by an unpleasant smell. In this case, it’s time for a complete maintenance. Clean everything you can.

Prevent dirty dishes, unpleasant odors and frequent clogging of hoses and filters, clogging of the dishwasher with limescale and grease, can be prevented by routine cleaning. At least once a month.
