Who Can Fix My Dishwasher?

Fix my dishwasher

While providing our services, we often converse with our customers. During these conversations, our customers often ask us some questions about their appliances to better care for them. When it comes to dishwashers, two of the questions we most frequently get are; Do plumbers fix dishwashers, and Who fixes broken dishwashers best? Have you ever wondered if any other technician can fix your dishwasher better than an appliance repair technician? The answer is yes. When your dishwasher has a problem, there are three types of technicians who can repair your dishwasher and get it running smoothly again; An electrician, A plumber, and An Appliance repairman. Depending on the issue your dishwasher is facing, these technicians can provide you valuable help. 

Before we look into how these technicians can help you with your appliances, let’s see some of the troubles your dishwasher can have that do not forcibly require the assistance of an appliance repairman. These dishwasher issues include; 

  • Dishwasher That Has difficulty Draining
  • Dishwasher That Won’t Turn on
  • Dishwasher That stops working in the middle of a cycle
  • Dishwasher That does not receive enough water during a cycle
  • Dishwasher That is leaking

If your dishwasher faces any of these troubles, one of the experts listed above can help you fix it appropriately. Let’s see now how each of these technicians can effectively get your dishwasher in good shape. 

Electricians Dishwashers Repair Services.

Electricians are not often the first people we think to call when our dishwashers have some troubles. This is actually justified since there are few failures in our dishwashers that fall in the competence field of electricians. But few don’t mean any. Among the list of dishwasher issues listed above are two that might require the attention of a professional electrician; a dishwasher that won’t turn on or one that stops working in the middle of a cycle.

The reason your dishwasher does not start at all or stops working in the middle of a cycle could be the result of a blown fuse in your electrical panel. That means that electricity is not reaching your appliance. You can try to fix it by changing the fuse in your fuse box. Once you have done that, start your dishwasher and check if the fuse blows again or the electric breaker trips. If it does, then you need to call an expert electrician. He or she will have a close look at your electrical installation and the wires that lead to your dishwasher to troubleshoot the problem.

Another reason your dishwasher might not start could be because of the thermal fuse inside your dishwasher. These fuses are installed in many appliances for safety purposes. When an appliance overheats, the thermal fuse blows. If the problem with your appliance is the thermal fuse, then an appliance repairman is the person to call. The appliance expert will replace the broken fuse and investigate what caused the fuse to break.

Plumbers Dishwashers Repair Services.

As you well know, to function fully, your dishwasher is connected to the water supply system of your home and its draining system. Thus, it is logical that if an issue related to these two parts of your plumbing system occurs, a plumber is the best person to call to fix it.

Draining Issues

One of the dishwasher issues that plumbers are most often called to fix is draining issues. Dishwasher draining problems are easy to notice. Often stagnant water in your device at the end of a cycle is a sign that you have a draining issue. The cause of the problem could be the clogging of the filters in your appliance. An expert plumber’s help can help you fix that in a matter of minutes. In case the filters are not the problem, then the issue might be located further in the drain hose or drain pipes. If you are mechanically inclined, you can try to disconnect the hose pipe and try to unclog it yourself. If not, call a plumber to check your drain pipes and unclog them.

Dishwasher Isn’t Filling.

A plumber is also the right person to call if your dishwasher does not fill in with water at the start of a cycle. The reasons why a dishwasher will not fill with water at the start of a cycle are various, ranging from a simple setting issue to a water pump issue. A plumber’s service is most importantly needed if the reason why your dishwasher is not filling comes from the appliance’s connection to the home water supply system. 

Dishwasher Is Leaking.

Leaks are also issues that a plumber can fix better than any other expert. This is especially true if the leak comes from the draining part of the appliance or the water supply parts. A plumber can easily detect and repair these types of leaks and have your dishwasher in perfect shape in a short time.

Should I Call An Electrician Or Plumber Immediately My Dishwasher Shows Signs Of Failure?

The answer to this question is “not always.”. When your dishwasher starts malfunctioning, the first service you have to call is an appliance repair service. An Appliance technician should always be the first person to troubleshoot your appliance. Once the expert has detected why your appliance is not functioning correctly, you can then decide who to call to fix it. Suppose the issue at hand is connected to plumbing or electricity and the appliance repair technician is not competent enough to handle the issue. In that case, you can hire a specialist in this domain to fix it. However, it is always better to hire highly skilled appliance technicians who can tackle any appliance issue, whether they are related to electricity or plumbing.
