Why Did Your Dishwasher Break Down?
There is commonly more than one problem when a dishwasher conks out. This is because of how many parts and dishwasher functions rely on one other for smooth operation. Common problems include worn pump assemblies, leaking from the appliance, burned-out heating elements, clogged drain lines, or damaged water valves. To fix a broken-down dishwasher, the technician needs to know how all of the parts of the appliance work together.

Common Repair and Troubleshooting Issues with Your Dishwasher
The water does not drain completely
Many times, you simply need to clean off the drain screen and the dishwasher will drain properly. Do this before calling us. Then, make sure that you rinse off the dishes before stacking them in the dishwasher this problem will occur again and again. If this is not the problem, you may have a damaged pump or a blockage in the drain pipe. These are things we can fix on a same-day visit.
The Dishwasher is Making Loud Noises
When your dishwasher pump hums loudly its housing is damaged or there is a blockage. We can check this out the same day and will probably need to replace the part as its motor is most likely beyond repair.
The Dishwasher Is Not Getting the Dishes Clean and it Runs a Long Time
When we see this combination of dishwasher problems, there is a problem with the timer or thermostat. And, the washer arms need to have the armholes cleaned out. And, there may be issues with the heating elements and impeller as well. These are all same-day repair issues for the certified technicians at Chad’s.
The Dishwasher Won’t Stop Filling or Does Not Fill
When your dishwasher will not fill up or drains too quickly, the water inlet valve and float have to be cleaned or replaced. Cleaning or replacing the float simply requires taking off an access panel. Because inlet valves are different from brand to brand, this is a repair issue that is best left for a professional.
When Should You Replace Your Dishwasher with a New One?
Dishwashers will generally work well for up to ten years. When you start seeing more and more problems with a model that is past a decade in service, you will see less and less time between repair visits. Ask our experienced technicians.
