If you notice standing water in your dishwasher, this is the first indicator that it’s not draining properly. Ignoring this problem can only lead to further damage and higher costs, making it significant to address this issue immediately. Having a malfunctioning dishwasher can make daily cleanup that much tougher– don’t let dishwasher concerns take up more of your time, forcing you to handwash dishes. If your Evergreen home’s dishwasher isn’t draining properly, there’s a good chance that you have a serious clog in your kitchen plumbing.
How to Troubleshoot Drain Concerns in Your Home’s Dishwasher
The first step to troubleshooting is making sure that the clog is originating from your dishwasher rather than stemming from a larger plumbing concern. This is easily achieved by analyzing the other drains in your home. Take a look at your kitchen sink along with the drains in your bathroom to make sure none of those are clogged. If you notice that other drains in your home aren’t draining either, this is an indicator that you have a whole-home plumbing issue. In this case, please contact AppleTree immediately for our fast, reliable drain cleaning services. If all of your drains are working properly, it’s probably a sole concern with your dishwasher. Check for the following items to determine what’s clogging your dishwasher:
- Dirty dishwasher filter
- Visible debris at the bottom of your dishwasher
- Clogged or disconnected drain hose
- Worn out drain valve bracket
