Frequently Asked Questions About Dishwasher Repair

  • Is my dishwasher worth fixing if it won't drain, but I can hear the pump running?

    Yes!

    It probably has a clogged drain hose or drain pump or sump.
  • Is my dishwasher worth fixing if it won't drain and also isn't making any noise?

    Maybe…

    This is an electrical problem. It may need a new board or pump, but is definitely repairable.
  • Is my dishwasher worth fixing if it washes poorly?

    Yes!

    This is generally a heater problem, or a sensor problem and is usually easily repairable.
  • Is my dishwasher worth fixing if it leaks on the floor?

    Maybe…

    If it's leaking out the front from under the door, it may been a new door gasket or baffle, or possibly a wash arm, which is an inexpensive repair. If it's leaking from underneath, it should be looked at to get a better idea what's wrong.
