A little over 100 years ago the dishwasher was invented by Josephine Cochrane. Cochrane was a wealthy woman who often entertained and she wanted a machine that could wash her dishes faster than her servants could but that wouldn’t break them. Since she couldn’t find a machine to do what she wanted, she invented one herself!
Nowadays, most people can’t imagine living without the convenience of their dishwasher. So, when it starts acting up, they can get easily frustrated. We understand, which is why we offer servicing on just about every make and model of dishwasher there is.

Common Dishwasher Issues We Repair
If you notice any of the following, give us a call and we’ll come right out and fix the issue:
Sometimes cloudy glassware is the result of glasses not being rinsed well enough before being loaded. Other times it is a result of extremely hard water that may require a softener. We can take a look and get to the bottom of it.
Dishes Are Not Getting Clean
This is a telltale sign that something is not working properly inside your unit. It could be that your spray armholes are blocked, or you could have a worn pump assembly or wash impeller. We’ll also take a look to see if your heating element is burned out.
Your Dishwasher Hums and Then Shuts Off
If, when you turn your dishwasher on, it makes a humming noise and then quickly shuts off, this usually means your motor has seized and will need to be replaced. It sounds expensive but it is cheaper than buying an entirely new dishwasher.
Your Wash Cycles Run for a Long Time
Do you wonder each night if your machine is taking longer to go through the cycle or if it’s all in your imagination? Older dishwashers often have difficulty completing a cycle due to either a defective thermostat or a malfunctioning timer. We can diagnose what may be causing this issue.
The Dishwasher Does Not Fill with Water
There are a few reasons why your dishwasher may not be filling properly. It may have a defective water inlet solenoid, failed valve, stuck or defective overflow float switch, or a malfunctioning timer. We can easily fix any of these issues for you.
The Dishwasher Doesn’t Drain
This is usually caused by a clogged drain line, a worn drain solenoid, or drain impeller. We’ll get to the bottom of it.
Your Dishwasher Leaks
The biggest culprit for leaks is actually using too much or the wrong kind of soap. Other reasons for leaks include worn door gaskets, tub-to-motor gaskets, spray arm assemblies, or a leaking pump/motor assembly may also be the reason for the leak.
