5 Quick Dishwasher Fixes

Ever open the dishwasher after a cycle to realize that all of your dishes and utensils are still dirty? There’s nothing more frustrating if you ask us. See below to find out how you can get your machine to leave your kitchen items sparkling clean once again!

  1. Check the spray arms. Sometimes they get clogged with food particles or soap residue and don’t work like they’re supposed to. Hard water is another common reason why the spray arm could clog but you can use warm water and vinegar to get them back in action.
  2. Don’t throw out that old toothbrush. Use it to clean off any dried-on food that could be causing an improper seal around the door. If it’s not closing properly, you could see some major problems with your appliance.
  3. Make sure nothing is blocking the soap tray. Large pots or pans could be blocking the door causing it to stay closed. It could be also be stuck shut from soap residue.
  4. Run a cycle with nothing inside. Sometimes detergent can build up inside so it’s a good idea to run a rinse. Pour some vinegar into the dishwasher and run it on the “rinse and hold” cycle.
  5. Clear the drain line. Just be sure to turn off the power, then you can check to see if the line is blocked.
