Got a Dishwasher Leak?


Found a dribble (or pool) of water at the foot of your dishwasher? It may be that the door is leaking (or of course simply not closed properly – so make sure you check that before charging to the phone and calling in the approved engineers!).

A couple of checks that may mean all is still well… Turn off the Dishwasher at the mains before carrying out any checks.

There’s still water in the Dishwasher!


Don’t shout ‘Yes there’s supposed to be!!’ We mean the dishwasher isn’t draining.

There are a few simple checks you can do to see if you can fix the problem before you need to call out the Appliance Force team.

Make sure the dishwasher is switched on and has run it’s full cycle, has there been a power cut, has it been accidently switched off? It may be a simple task of allowing the dishwasher to run its cycle.

My Dishwasher won’t start


Before we go into the steps and checks you can do before calling one of our approved authorised dishwasher repair engineers, it’s worth just checking a couple of obvious ones (you’ll be surprised!).

Check for lights on the dishwasher

  1. Does the dishwasher need rinse aid or salt?
  2. Have any of the program buttons been pressed by mistake to pause or lock the machine?
  3. Is the door closed properly?

As with all domestic appliances, the best practice to avoid the need for repairs is to follow a few simple rules.

Basic use of the dishwasher


The best use of a dishwasher, from an energy saving point of view, is to fully load it in the correct racks, but don't stack it in and overfill it (as this will result items not being cleaned properly and the need to run the dishwasher on another cycle).

Leave gaps around the plates, cups and other cutlery, pots and pans, etc. so the water jets can disperse the water and move the detergent around the washer as per the manufacturer's design (the user manual will have loading advice, so make sure you have a read before you start).
