Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How to prevent my dishwasher from breaking down?
A. Maintenance and timely repairs are the key to keeping your dishwasher in perfect working order. It's also important to avoid making mistakes like overloading your dishwasher or using too much or too little detergent.
Q. Should I pre-wash my dishes?
A. Pre-washing your dishes or just giving them a rinse can make things easier for your dishwasher. In addition, you will prevent any food particles from building up inside the appliance. Even if you don't choose to rinse your dishes before loading them, you should at least scrape all the food off first.
Q. What to do if your dishwasher is making a strange noise?
A. Your dishwasher will make some sounds during the wash cycle. However, if it gets really noisy, it could just be something simple like fitting. Another problem that could arise at some point is a faulty dishwasher pump or motor assembly. It's best to contact a professional dishwasher repair technician to diagnose and fix the problem.
Q. Are my dishes dishwasher safe?
A. Not all dishes should be placed in the dishwasher. There should be a notice on the packaging or even on the dish itself. If it does not say that it's dishwasher safe, you should wash by hand. Other items that should not be washed in a dishwasher include anything delicate, some plastic items, and things like wooden spoons.
Q. How often should I clean my dishwasher?
A. Your dishwasher is responsible for cleaning your dishes, which means that it too needs to be clean in order to be effective. It's recommended that you clean your dishwasher every two to three weeks in order to make sure that there's no excessive build-up of soap or debris.
Q. What should I do if my dishwasher is leaking?
A. The first things you should check are the door gasket and your hoses. If there are no problems, then it could be a defective pump. Call a technician for professional assistance.
Q. Why isn't my dishwasher cleaning my dishes properly?
A. This can be happening because your dishwasher has not been cleaned for a while. If this does not solve the problem, there could be a blockage in the inlet valve. It's also worth noting that if you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher for a day or two, the tiny food particles can become hard and this makes them difficult to clean – even for your dishwasher. This is one reason why so many people choose to pre-wash.
Q. How can I make my dishwasher more efficient?
A. Firstly, scrape all of your food off your dishes before placing them in the dishwasher. It doesn't hurt to rinse them too. Load the dishwasher according to the instructions in the manufacturer’s guide and never overload. Use the appropriate dishwasher detergent and always use the right amount too.
Q. Why is my dishwasher not starting?
A. The most common reason for this is that the door is not shut properly or the latch on the door is worn or broken. If the latch is worn or broken, it will prevent the wash cycle from starting. Call a dishwasher repair professional for fast assistance.
Q. Why won't my dishwasher drain properly?
A. A clog caused by food residue is the number one cause of this problem. The pump strainer or drain hose can become blocked and cause drainage issues. Try to disconnect the drain hose from the pump. Clean the hose and see if this resolves the issue. If not, you should contact a professional.
Q. How soon will my dishwasher be repaired?
A. At Capital Appliance Repair, we always do our best to repair dishwashers during our first visit. We arrive prepared with tools and parts that might be needed to complete repairs on the spot. The exact amount of time required will depend on the problem.
Q. What can I do before a dishwasher technician arrives?
A. If possible, it would be helpful if you could remove any dishes from the appliance. This will help save time and allow the technicians to get straight to work without delay. If there is anything in the room that might get in the technicians' way, move it out of the way so that it's no longer an obstacle.
Q. Should I try to fix my dishwasher myself?
A. DIY repairs might sound like a cheap way out, but these appliances are complex and they often result in more extensive damage with higher repair costs. So, instead of risking it, call an expert to get the job done right.
Q. Are you available on weekends?
A. Yes, we are available 7 days a week for all your dishwasher repair needs anywhere in Ottawa! Call Capital Appliance Repair at
