Dishwasher Repair in Toronto

Dishwashers have become one of the most heavily used appliances in modern household. According to statistics, the use of dishwashers have increased over the past few years. Most of the households use dishwashers once or even twice daily, with only few using it occasionally. The modern fast paced lifestyle is to blame. The increased use adds extra stress to the moving parts, causing them to wear out faster and resulting in breaking and malfunctioning and requiring repair and service more often.

Our clients ask us, as one of Toronto leading appliance repair experts a lot how to minimise the wear and tear on their dishwasher and extend their service term.

Here are a few easy steps that you can do to help prevent your dishwasher from breaking:

  1. Rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. As basic as it sounds - this easy step will prevent the food leftovers from blocking the moving parts and block the drain.
  2. Clean and inspect the filter regularly located at the bottom under the lower spray arm, in case you notice any damage in that area, it has to be fixed to protect the dishwasher pump and motor
  3. Clean interior of the dishwasher regularly, this will not only prevent an unpleasant odour from building up, but will also will remove the small particles of leftover food that might block the moving dishwasher components.
  4. Do not overload your dishwasher and make sure that dishes do not block the moving spray arms. If you have kids helping you put the dishes in the dishwasher, check it first before pressing the on button.
  5. Pay attention to the sound of the working dishwasher, if you hear unfamiliar noise or squeaking - call the repair technician to inspect it - what seems to be a potentially insignificant murmur, if ignored might end up needing more serious repair or major part replacement.

When our clients ask us the question what brand or make of dishwasher to buy hoping never to deal with repair - we are always being upfront - the truth is there is no brand or make of dishwashers, or any other home appliances that are guaranteed not to break.

There are way too many factors at play - from manufacturing and design, parts production, transportation to installation and daily use and maintenance that really varies from household to household. Over the years servicing appliances we have dealt with all makes and models, including the discontinued ones. In terms of repair the repair parts are easily accessible for all the appliances, so the parts availability will not be an issue with any make.

When it comes to dishwasher repair you should alway trust the professionals that have been in business for a long time and have access to all repair parts and manufacturer’s resources the way we do. A little problem if not addressed properly and on time might end up costing you more in the long run.
