How to Diagnose Clogged Dishwashers in Arvada Homes

When your dishwasher stops working unexpectedly, this can cause major disfunction in any home. If you notice standing water at the bottom of your dishwasher, this is a major indicator that your dishwasher probably has a clog or some other issue. Leaving your dishwasher unrepaired can cause a lot of inconveniences, making you handwash your dishes. Here are some tips on how to troubleshoot what’s going on with your Arvada home’s dishwasher.

Tips on Running Diagnostics for Your Dishwasher

The first step is to make sure your dishwasher is solely experiencing plumbing concerns– check out your kitchen sink drain along with other drains around your house to make sure everything is working and draining properly. If other drains in your home aren’t draining right, your property is experiencing a whole-home plumbing issue. If that’s the case, you’ll need to contact your AppleTree team for drain cleaning services. If all of your drains are working properly and it’s only your dishwasher with drain concerns, chances are pretty good that it’s an issue with just your dishwasher. Take a closer look at your dishwasher to see if you notice any of the following problems:

  • Worn out drain valve bracket
  • Clogged or disconnected drain hose
  • Dirty filter
  • Visible debris at the bottom

How to Resolve Your Malfunctioning Arvada Dishwasher

If you notice any of the above items, these are easy fixes! Changing out your drain valve bracket, connecting/blowing out your drain hose, changing the dishwasher filter, and/or removing the debris from your dishwasher can all quickly resolve these issues. If you still can’t get your dishwasher to drain properly, please contact us!
