Frequently asked questions.

Dishwasher

Dishwasher cleaning issues?

First always run your water at the sink until it gets hot before starting your dishwasher. Your dishwasher needs to be 120 degrees to clean properly, and if your water heater is on the other side of the house the water may not be getting hot enough. Second, always use a rinse aid if using a powder or liquid detergent; without a rinse aid you will have streaks and spots. Third, if you have a disposal, turn it on for a few seconds before starting the dishwasher. Finally, if your dishes are still not clean give us a call because there is likely a problem with the dishwasher.

Washer does not drain?

If your washer fills but does not drain, you could have a problem with the door lock/safety switch or the drain pump. On some front load washer models, they have pump clean-out located on the front of the washer. It will look like a square cover that can be removed and has a clean-out that can be unscrewed behind it. Be aware if the clean-out is removed, all the water in the washer will drain quickly, so be ready, a shop-vac works great.
