How to Clean a Dishwasher

Does your dishwashing machine not clean dishes? This is an issue that you can may solve before you call us or buy a new dishwasher.

Step 1: Simple solutions for cleaning dishes

How to clean your dishwasher:

Remove the spray hand from the dishwasher and clean the holes. This also gives access to the dishwasher filter for cleaning. Spray arms can break. Others ask you to unscrew the lid at the top.

You may be wondering how I clean my dishwasher. If your dishwashing machine works but the dishes are not cleaned, one of these simple solutions could solve your problem. Start by checking the Owner Manual to make sure you use the right detergent, place the dishes properly and maintain the correct hot water temperature.

Not enough water in the machine can also result in improper cleaning. If the float is stuck in a raised position, the washing machine will not be filled with water. Another possible cause is a clogged inlet screen or a faulty inlet valve.  To determine if your dishwasher is getting enough water, start the cleaning cycle. Open the door when you hear the machine stop. The water must reach or approach the heating unit. Otherwise, first check that the float valve is operating freely. If that does not solve the problem, check the intake valve and screen.

Step 2: Replace the suction valve

Remove the inlet valve from the dishwasher to clean the display or replace the valve. Unscrew the nut that connects the water pipe and remove the water pipe. Remove the screws that connect the valve retainer to the dishwasher frame and lower the valve. Attach the hose clamp to remove the rubber hose. Disconnect the cables.

Dishwasher inlet valves, which start working, sometimes make hammer noise. If you hear this, replace the valve. It’s best to have us do it.  But before you start any dishwasher repair, turn it off or unplug the power switch or the main board. Make sure the power is off and check that it does not work. You will also need to turn off the water before removing the input switch. You will usually find a shut-off valve under the sink or in the basement or under the dishwasher. Otherwise, close the main water valve.

Yours may seem different. Whether you are replacing the valve or simply cleaning the screen, you will need to unscrew the brass coupling that connects the water pipe to the valve. Remove the four screws that secure the valve to the bracket to access the filter screen. Reassemble and reinstall the valve in reverse order. Before screwing the coupling into the valve, wrap a Teflon cord around the thread of the shackles.
