Dishwasher Repair and Tips

For dishwasher repair service or free advice give us a call (858) 353-9901

Attempting to repair a dishwasher without the proper training and safety standards is dangerous.


Dishwashers should only be repaired by skilled professionals who have the knowledge and experience to safely bring them out of disrepair. Repairs performed by unqualified technicians risk serious injury or even death. A relatively small outlet can easily carry the current needed to kill a person.


Proper maintenance and care is essential in keeping your dishwasher running efficiently. Improper care will cause your unit to over work; using more electricity to keep your dishes clean than if properly maintained. To reduce the need of repairs, use the following preventative measures:


Money saving tips that will extend the life of your dishwasher and lower your energy consumption!


  • Regularly use a cup of white distilled vinegar through a complete cleaning cycle of a fully loaded dishwasher. This will gently  clean residues, odors and debris from your dishwasher and keep your glass wear clear.

  • If your dishwasher has a filter underneath the lower spray arm, remove all debris and rinse to protect the pump and motor seals. Replace if it has holes. A dirty filter may cause the dishwasher to not drain.

  • Keep the holes in the spray arms clear, use a tooth brush or soak in vinegar and warm water. Make sure to remove all debris and residues. Doing this regularly will remove the stress on the pumps and motor.

  • Do not overload your dishwasher. This will result in poor cleaning.

  • Check drain hoses are not impeded from draining. Remove kinks and other stoppages. Improper draining may cause the pump to overheat and burn out.

  • Do not add more than the recommended amount of detergent. To much detergent cause leaks and etching of glass wear.


By following these tips, you can prolong the life of your dishwasher and avoid many costly repairs.  However, there are times when a repair is still needed. California Major Appliance Repair can fix almost all dishwashers!
