George was excellent and very helpful. He had a lot of advice for after sales care of the appliance
I was able to book my inspection promptly, and was called when the parts arrived to have them installed. I would recommend and will use them for any future appliance repairs
Knowledgeable repairman. Efficient worker who was able to diagnose the problem quickly. Impressed by the quality of service. We were only charged the service call fee and I have no qualms in recommending Capital Appliance Repair to anyone or using them again in the future.
George came out the next day, quickly fixed the problem with our dishwasher. Clean, efficient and professional. Would definitely recommend and use in the future.
Great service called in the morning and our repairman George arrived by noon of the same day. He was efficient, friendly and professional. He diagnosed the problem and fixed it in about an hour. I would definitely use this company again.”
I called Capital to have my dishwasher looked at (Thermador) as it wasn’t draining properly. Managed to get an appointment the same day, Sergei showed up, on time, did the fix, showed me how to maintain the unit to avoid the problem in the future.
Things You Should Know About Dishwasher Repair
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
