1. Not Starting or Turning On
Sometimes, a dishwasher refuses to start, even after pressing the power button. This can be due to issues with the door latch, electronic controls, or a blown fuse.
2. Not Cleaning Dishes Properly
Dishes coming out dirty can be due to clogged spray arms, a malfunctioning detergent dispenser, or using the wrong type or amount of detergent.
3. Not Draining
Water remaining at the bottom indicates a drainage problem. A clogged drain, a faulty drain pump, or a blocked drain hose can cause this.
4. Leaking Water
Leaks can originate from a faulty door seal, a damaged hose, or an overfilled dishwasher.
5. Making Unusual Noises
Grinding, squealing, or knocking sounds can signal issues with the pump, spray arms, or a foreign object caught in the machinery.
6. Not Drying Dishes Properly
If dishes remain wet after the cycle, it might be due to a malfunctioning heating element, a faulty fan, or an incorrect rinse aid.
