Retro DishwasherDishwashers come in a large range of makes and models and while they generally continue to work day in and day out, there are times when they break down and fail. Sometimes this will be when we go to put the machine on, or in other cases when we open the machine to expect to see clean crockery and cutlery, and instead see a soapy mess with water puddled on the appliances floor pan. In almost all cases, you will only realize that your dishwasher is not working only after you have fully stashed the machine.

Our Technicians Are Professional

There are a number of conditions that can cause your dishwasher to fail, the most frequent of these being: The outlet water pipes have become blocked with food stuffs and will no longer allow water to flow out, instead leaving it trapped in the machine. In other cases, the dishwasher just will not start meaning that an electrical gremlin has gotten in somewhere, or the systems safety device will not allow the unit to start due to it being alerted that there is something wrong with one of the internal components. While there is any number of smaller things that can stop your dishwasher working depending one the make and model, these would be the most common occurrences.

Don’t Try To Fix It Yourself – Call Your Local Repairmen!

Unless you can see that the unit is clogged with foodstuffs then the issue is more serious. In the case of foodstuffs blocking the jets or drainage system at the base, you may be able to find a heavy duty cleaner that you can run a cycle with the machine empty to see if the high powered cleaner will unclog the jets and restore complete operation back to you.
