Every now and then we get called in for a dishwasher repair job. Upon arriving our client explains that things are not running so smoothly. Dishes are being washed inconsistently, items remain smeared with grease and grime, a general sense that the dishwasher is simply not doing its job has crept in. This happens on every kind of dishwasher, from budget models to the best appliance Bosch has to offer.
Often these service calls could be avoided with some efforts being put into cleaning elements of the dishwasher that often go unnoticed. Here are some measures to take:
- Unclog the Spray Arms: In most models the spray arms are easy to remove. Grime gets inside of these elements from food particles and soap and can often clog them up. Using a steel wire clear out the arm.
- Soak the Spray Arms: White vinegar can help break down anything you and your steel wire couldn’t get out.
- Scrub Down the Dishwasher: Scrubbing down the dishwasher can seem redundant but often soap and other elements dry in and around the appliance. A good scrub down can help stop debris from being rattled in the washing process.
- Scrub the Seals and Door: Using a toothbrush you should scrub the door and the seals around the door. A lot of junk can end up here and can hinder your dishwasher’s functionality.
If you have taken all of these measures and dishes still seem gross give us a call! Our dishwasher repair team can be over and troubleshooting the issue today!
