Dishwasher Troubles

» Posted by on Feb 8, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Time seems to be more important than ever, so products that save us time and money are going to become more and more important. If we know that almost 25% of the time we spent on housework every day is spend on manual cleaning of dishes then it’s no wonder why dishwashers today have become an essential part of almost every household. There are many advantages of using dishwashers compared to manual washing – dishwashers save water and electricity, they save time and you can be sure that your dishes are properly and thoroughly cleaned. Modern technology has allowed production of high-quality dishwashers that usually last for years, but the truth is that these appliances can become defective and break down especially after the manufacturer’s warranty period has passed.

Once this warranty is over many people decide to buy a new dishwasher, but unfortunately this is not an option for many families because dishwashers like most kitchen appliances are usually expensive. Of course, there is nothing wrong with this in case the appliance is working fine. But, many people ignore the signs of malfunctioning and choose to use the machine until it finally stops working. This is completely wrong not only because the dishwasher will be much harder to repair once it completely stops working, but also because it is potentially dangerous to use a machine like that. It is very important to check every odd noise or even the slightest problem with your dishwasher because this can be sign of some more serious problem.

For example, one very common problem is a leaking dishwasher. Although this may sound harmless to many people, it is a fact that these leaks can be a slipping hazard and on top of that they can cause rotting of the floor which can lead to even more serious hazards (hazardous mold, development of bacteria etc.). If there is a problem with the pipes and tubes and they are stuck this can lead to a flood. This situation can be easily noticed – the dishes are not washed in a proper way. Leaks usually appear on the door of the device. If the door lock is broken or damaged, it can easily fall off during the cleaning process and those near the dishwasher risk leg injuries. Furthermore, there are dozens of cases of fire caused by dishwashers every year. Almost all of the people using these machines have noticed some irregularities in the way their machines worked before the fire occurred. We don’t have to mention how dangerous fires can be.

These are only some of the hazards that faulty units bring. In order to avoid them, you should take care of the maintenance of your unit and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Never use the dishwasher in a way that you are not supposed to. In case you notice any kind of unusual noise or some kind of problems with your dishwasher it is the best idea to call a professional service to check and fix it.
