DIY Quick Fixes: Dishwasher Repair

If your dishwasher won't start...

  1. Open the door and close it firmly to ensure it is closed properly.

  2. Make sure that you are closing the door within 3 seconds of pressing start if it has top-button control.

  3. Confirm that it’s receiving power. If lights on the display don’t turn on when you press them, reset the breaker and try again.

  4. Check that Control Lock or Delay Start options aren’t selected on the display—your dishwasher won’t start as expected in these modes.

  5. Make sure water supply valve to your dishwasher is turned on all the way.

  6. Clear any debris that may be caught under the float assembly that is located on the bottom of the dishwasher tub and be sure that it can move up and down freely.

If your dishwasher won't drain...

  1. Ensure that the the drain hose that connects to the garbage disposal and/or your sink’s drain line is not kinked and that bends are not too sharp.

  2. Check and clear any blockages in the drain hose.

  3. If your dishwasher has an air gap (usually located on the countertop, parallel to the faucet), lift the cover off, unscrew the plastic cap, and clean any soil build up with a paper clip.

  4. If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, confirm that the “knock out plug” was removed before the dishwasher drain hose was connected.

If your dishwasher is leaking...

  1. Open the door and close it firmly to ensure it is closed properly.

  2. Make sure the dishwasher is level from side to side and from front to back.

  3. Adjust the rinse agent dispenser to a lower number setting to ensure that there is not too much rinse agent being dispensed.

  4. Run the dishwasher without detergent to ensure the problem is not caused by using too much detergent.

If the door won't stay closed...

  1. Check for pots, pot handles, or other objects that may be extending out of the rack area.

  2. Clear away any foreign objects or food debris that has built up on the door gasket (the soft rubber seal that runs around the door).

  3. If your dishwasher is new, you may need to push more firmly than usual on the door until the new door gasket softens up.

  4. Make sure the lower rack is not in backwards by confirming that any plastic spacers on the rack are facing the door.

  5. Make sure the dishwasher is level side-to-side and front-to-back.

If your dishes aren't getting cleaned...

  1. Make sure that there is rinse aid in the dispenser.

  2. Clean the detergent dispenser to ensure it is opening and dispensing correctly.

  3. Clear any debris that may be caught under the float assembly that is located on the bottom of the dishwasher tub and be sure that it can move up and down freely.

  4. Run the dishwasher without detergent to ensure the problem is not caused by using too much detergent leaving residue on the dishes.

If the dishwasher isn't filling with water...

  1. Open the door and close it firmly to ensure it is closed properly.

  2. Make sure water supply valve to your dishwasher is turned on all the way.

  3. Clear any debris that may be caught under the float assembly that is located on the bottom of the dishwasher tub and be sure that it can move up and down freely.

  4. Make sure water supply valve to your dishwasher is turned on all the way.

  5. Check the display and confirm that your dishwasher is not running in Demo Mode.
