Dishwashers are appliances, so when they break, you call the appliance repair shop – right? Not necessarily. There are some times when a plumber is the appropriate professional to call for your dishwasher issues.
Call your local plumber when the dishwasher has no water coming into it.
Obviously, water is an integral part of the dishwashing process. If your dishwasher has no water coming into it – and it’s always had water going into it before – it’s time to call the plumber. The issue may be a clogged supply line, or it may be a leak or other serious issue.
Call your local plumber when the dishwasher won’t drain.
Opening the dishwasher to discover all the nasty water is still in the bottom is no fun at all. Food particles, grease, and other debris can clog the dishwasher’s drain pipe. If the water doesn’t drain after you’ve cleared the drain cover, it’s time to call in your Queens Village plumber. The dishwasher drain as well as the kitchen sink drains may need cleaning. This household task generally needs to be performed on a somewhat regular basis – once every three to five years for most families.
Call your local plumber when the dishwasher needs to be replaced.
While most appliance stores offer some sort of installation service, this work is often contracted out to lowest-bidder independent contractors – not necessarily the caliber of professionals you want working on your home or valuable new appliances.
Your local plumber is the right professional to ensure your new dishwasher is properly connected to supply lines and drain pipes – an especially critical consideration if the dishwasher is not going in the exact same spot as the old one.
Issues your local plumber can’t help you with, in regards to your dishwasher
If your dishwasher does not turn on at all, accept or follow commands appropriately, or function in a way that actually cleans the dishes, these are issues that should be brought to the appliance repair professional. They are the service that takes care of the appliance, including its controls, motor, and more.
