There are several probable reasons why your dishwasher won’t drain properly. Unclean dishwashers usually don’t drain well. Every household appliance requires routine maintenance, including cleaning and preventive measures. Appliances such as a dishwasher that has to endure more than others must be cleaned frequently. If your dishwasher is clean and relatively well maintained, then you should look for flaws in the appliance. Call Max Appliance Repair for a swift inspection and same-day service in Ottawa.

The first checkpoint should be the drain hose. It could be blocked. There may be different reasons for the clogging. The main drain for your sink may be blocked. There could be water backing up within the hose. Food debris and other materials could have clogged the drain hose. The outlet valve may be malfunctioning. The drainage system, also referred to as the plumbing features, of a dishwasher must be thoroughly checked. If some parts are damaged, they should be replaced. Otherwise, a thorough cleaning and servicing should suffice.
In some cases, dishwashers don’t drain well if the door is not perfectly shut or latched. Poor latching mechanism, improper fittings, and also the alignment of the items inside can pose some problems. But these are minor issues. A more serious probable cause why your dishwasher won’t drain properly is a broken pump seal. It may have worn out or damaged. The pump seal can interrupt the cycle, and effectively stop it from expected completion.
Stopping a dishwasher before it has completely drained and the utensils have dried can lead to leftover pool of dirty liquid. Interruption of power or voltage fluctuation can create some issues. Opening the door too soon may interfere with the drainage issue. If your dishwasher has a macerator, then its efficient and effective functioning is necessary for the appliance to drain completely.
There may be factors beyond the dishwasher. The water supply line for the appliance may have low pressure. The drain in the sink and the hose from the dishwasher may be unsuitably leveled or positioned. Our technicians consider all these probabilities, detect the real problem and carry out onsite dishwasher repair on the same day.
