Although Rooter Plus is mainly known for our plumbing prowess, we also offer a myriad of other services to help your home or business run more smoothly. Many people are not aware that we also offer dishwasher repair services in Marietta, Georgia and the nearby areas.
Here are 4 signs that you may need to call us to repair your dishwasher:
1. Standing Water. Once the dishwasher has completed its wash and rinse cycles, there shouldn’t be any leftover water hanging out in the bottom of the machine. If you find that your dishwasher has a pool in the bottom after it is finished washing, it is time to do a little investigation. It is possible that the drain is clogged or the pipes leading away from the dishwasher are clogged. Call RooterPlus for dishwasher repair services if you still have a standing water problem after cleaning out the food trap in the bottom of the machine.
2. A Weak Seal. If your dishwasher isn’t latching properly, it will not be as efficient, and if it stops latching altogether, it probably won’t run at all. It may simply need a new latch installed or the current latch may need a bit of repair, however, it could be something more serious like warping and should be looked at by a professional.
3. Rusting. If you find rust anywhere in your dishwasher or on the floor underneath your dishwasher, you should call for dishwasher repair services right away! Rusting is a sign that water is going where it should not be going which can lead to serious water damage in the floor and walls around your machine.
4. It Stops Being Hot. Usually, when dishes come out of the dishwasher, they are extremely hot to the touch, but if your dishes stop feeling hot at the end of the cycle, it is a sign that something is not working right. Cold dishes usually mean something has malfunctioned with your heating coil. No heating coil means your dishes aren’t exactly as clean as you think they are which can lead to food-poisoning in severe instances.
Not all issues with your dishwasher can be repaired, but it is worth finding out if it is a simple fix before folding and purchasing a new dishwasher. RooterPlus is happy to stop by and assess the issue as part of our dishwasher repair services that we offer in the Marietta, Georgia area.
