The problem: Your dishwasher is noisy. How to fix it: Unless you have an ultra-quiet
dishwasher, most dishwashers will make some noise. But if your once quiet dishwasher is now making
a racket, you may have a problem. You could have a defective pump, or simply
need to replace the wash arm seal or bearing ring. Another possibility? Your spray arms aren’t turning properly
and may be hitting racks or dishes and need to be replaced. The problem: Your dishwasher doesn’t clean
well. How to fix it: A dishwasher that doesn’t
clean dishes is hardly a dishwasher at all. Make sure that your dishwasher isn’t dirty
to begin with, checking the strain screen, sprayer arms, and door gasket for food particles,
grease, and other debris. Run a cleaning cycle using dishwasher cleaner
and without dishes to see if it helps. You may also have low pressure from spray
arms. If you have hard water, you may have buildup
that should be cleaned off. Inspect the spray arm and ensure that it can
move freely without obstruction. If it is worn, replace it. Another problem could be the upper discharge
housing gasket, whether it is loose or needs to be replaced. And of course, you may need a higher quality
of detergent, or your detergent is too old from sitting in a cabinet longer than three
months. The problem: Your dishwasher is leaking. How to fix it: This is one of the most dreaded
dishwasher problems, and can even cause serious damage to your home. First, check the drainage hose for cracks
and other damage, as well as the gaskets in the heating element. A leaking dishwasher is another problem that
can be caused by a defective pump or pump seal. Consider changing out the seal, or if necessary,
replace the pump. But before you do that, take a look at the
door gasket. If it has become brittle or looks like it’s
not sealing properly, replace it to see if you can get a better fit. We are Best Master Plumbers serving Halifax,
