Common Dishwasher Issues and Solutions

Once you’re familiar with your dishwasher configuration, consider several standard problems users often encounter—knowing how to manage them can save time and hassle. If you prefer a professional to handle these problems, contact our team at TrustedFix Appliance Repair today.

Dishwasher Doesn’t Fill With Water

This problem typically indicated by making noise like it’s operating without any water inside could be due to a stuck float switch caused by accumulated debris over time – once cleared up, your machine should operate normally.

Alternatively, there might be an issue with the water inlet valve – ensure that it isn’t plugged and receives power during the fill portion of cycle; else remember this part isn’t repairable-if found defective it needs replacement!

Finally faulty door switches can prevent filling of water into the machine. Check continuity using multi-meter and replacing them wherever necessary 

Dishwasher Not Draining

Firstly, ensure your drain hose isn’t bent or clogged – Pro-tip use a straightened hanger to remove stuck food debris carefully 

Another common culprit is the check valve—a small plastic piece located at the end of the drain pump. If it gets stuck, replace this part.

Dishwasher Making Noise

If your dishwasher creates excessive noise during operation several issues could be at fault including damaged water inlet valve-pump motor bearings or wash arm seal/cleaner impellers. Inspect visually where possible and replace parts as necessary.

Remember to consult an appliance repair technician whenever facing intricate problems inside piping/tubing for best results.

Dishwashers are robust machines designed for convenience yet demand periodic care. Observing unusual noises/dim lights etc can pre-empt major flaws-saves huge future investment towards heavy repairs/replacement in the long run!


Before addressing possible issues with a dishwasher, it’s important to know the different types available. Each model comes with unique characteristics and may require distinct troubleshooting methods.

Built-in Dishwashers

The most common type of dishwasher, these are typically installed under kitchen counters. Possible problems could include the dishwasher not cleaning properly because the spray arm is blocked or there might be an issue with water temperature.

Portable and Countertop Dishwashers

These dishwashers are ideal for smaller kitchens or apartments where space is at a premium. They are flexible but might face issues such as insufficient water pressure or problems connecting to the kitchen faucet.

Dishdrawer or Drawer Dishwashers

A modern convenience, drawer dishwashers are either built into lower cabinets or come as double drawers stacked vertically. Since each drawer operates separately, you can run different wash cycles simultaneously. Problems may arise from faulty seals leading to leaks, blockage in individual spray arms causing unclean dishes, or sensing errors that prevent normal operations.

A dishwasher is composed of multiple parts that work together to clean your dishes thoroughly. Here’s a brief overview of some key components and their roles:

Control Panel

It houses the buttons or dials you use to select wash cycles, settings, and start or stop the machine.

Spray Arms

They deliver water mixed with detergent around the dishwasher during a wash cycle for effective cleaning. Most dishwashers have two spray arms—one at bottom while another beneath the top rack.

Inlet Valve

Operating as entry gate for main water supply when needed by dishwasher- having default position as ‘closed’ – opens only upon energy supplied via solenoid valve which attracts magnetic plunger opening flood gate.

Filtration System

The filtration system traps leftover food particles keeping dishwasher interiors clean while preventing blockage within drainage/water circulation pipes ensuring optimum performance. 

Pump Assembly 

This vital component recirculates hot water under high pressure through ‘spray arms’ playing a critical role in the primary soaking/spraying cycle integral responsible for meticulous cleaning.  


The motor power pump assembly delivers mechanical force driving impellers creating required pressure moving liquids throughout machine’s plumbing–Thermador brands known unique two-motor system providing redundancy flexibility aspects.

Heating Element

Situated at the bottom of the dishwasher tub, its purpose is to heat the water to the desired temperature helping dissolve detergents while enhancing overall cleaning efficiency. During the final cycle-tub gets heated once again to speed up the drying process.

Float Switch 

This safety device monitors water level inside of the machine, and prevents overflowing by signaling the inlet valve to stop filling the tub when it reaches optimum capacity.

Door latch and switches

The door latch ensures the door is securely closed during operation, while the switches are activated to ensure that the machine works only when the door is properly latched for safety measures.

Each part plays an important role in ensuring your dishwasher works efficiently and safely in rendering clean and ready-to-use dishes. Regular maintenance can prevent common issues and prolong your dishwasher’s life span.
