George was efficient, knowledgeable and polite. We needed repairs to our stove, dishwasher and washing machine. He explained what was wrong and quickly knew how to fix it. He even cleaned up after himself afterward - something you don’t always see. Would highly recommend!

Great service from our technician who, on both occasions, arrived well ahead of time and spent a great deal of time trying to determine the source of a problem with our washer. The follow up visit addressed a further problem found on the first visit. We appreciate the thoroughness of his work as well as the very quick turn around time to book our first appointment.

Things You Should Know About Dishwasher Repair

Q. How do I stop my dishwasher from breaking?

Maintenance and timely repairs are the key to keeping your dishwasher in perfect working order. It's also important to avoid overloading your dishwasher or using too much or too little detergent.

Q. Are you supposed to rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher?

Pre-washing your dishes or just giving them a rinse can make things easier for your dishwasher. In addition, you will prevent any food particles from building up inside the appliance. Even if you don't choose to rinse your dishes before loading them, you may want to consider at least scraping all the food off first.

Q. Why is my dishwasher making a weird noise?

Your dishwasher will make some sounds during the wash cycle. However, if it gets really noisy, it could just be something simple like fitting. Another problem that could arise at some point is a faulty dishwasher pump or motor assembly. It's best to contact a professional dishwasher repair technician to diagnose and fix the problem.

Q. Are all dishes dishwasher safe?

Not all dishes should be placed in the dishwasher. There should be a notice on the packaging or even on the dish itself. If it does not say that it's dishwasher safe, you should wash by hand. Other items that should not be washed in a dishwasher include anything delicate, some plastic items, and things like wooden spoons.

Q. How often should you deep clean your dishwasher?

Your dishwasher is responsible for cleaning your dishes, which means that it too needs to be clean in order to be effective. It's recommended that you clean your dishwasher every two to three weeks in order to make sure that there's no excessive build-up of soap or debris.

Q. Why is my dishwasher leaking water from underneath?

The first things you should check are the door gasket and your hoses. If there are no problems, then it could be a defective pump. Call a technician for professional assistance.

Q. How do I get my dishwasher to clean better?

This can be happening because your dishwasher has not been cleaned for a while. If this does not solve the problem, there could be a blockage in the inlet valve. It's also worth noting that if you leave dirty dishes in your dishwasher for a day or two, the tiny food particles can become hard and this makes them difficult to clean – even for your dishwasher. This is one reason why so many people choose to pre-wash.

Q. How can I reduce the energy consumption of my dishwasher?

Firstly, scrape all of your food off your dishes before placing them in the dishwasher. It doesn't hurt to rinse them too. Load the dishwasher according to the instructions in the manufacturer’s guide and never overload. Use the appropriate dishwasher detergent and always use the right amount too.

Q. What causes a dishwasher to not turn on?

The most common reason for this is that the door is not shut properly or the latch on the door is worn or broken. If the latch is worn or broken, it will prevent the wash cycle from starting. Call a dishwasher repair professional for fast assistance.

Q. Why Isn't my Dishwasher draining all the way?

A clog caused by food residue is the number one cause of this problem. The pump strainer or drain hose can become blocked and cause drainage issues. Try to disconnect the drain hose from the pump. Clean the hose and see if this resolves the issue. If not, you should contact a professional.

Q. How long do dishwasher repairs take?

At Capital Appliance Repair, we always do our best to repair dishwashers during our first visit. We arrive prepared with tools and parts that might be needed to complete repairs on the spot. The exact amount of time required will depend on the problem.

Q. Is there anything I should do to prepare a dishwasher for repairs?

If possible, it would be helpful if you could remove any dishes from the appliance. This will help save time and allow the technicians to get straight to work without delay. If there is anything in the room that might get in the technicians' way, move it out of the way so that it's no longer an obstacle.

Q. Can I repair my dishwasher myself?

DIY repairs might sound like a cheap way out, but these appliances are complex and they often result in more extensive damage with higher repair costs. You can also potentially damage your kitchen area around the dishwasher. So, instead of risking it, call an expert to get the job done right.

Q. Do you provide same-day dishwasher repair services in Ottawa?

Yes, we are available 7 days a week for all your dishwasher repair needs anywhere in Ottawa! Call Capital Appliance Repair at (613) 454-1577.

Q. Do you install dishwashers?

Yes. We offer professional and reliable dishwasher installation services in Ottawa and the surrounding areas.
