Your dishwasher is the unsung hero of your kitchen – load it, leave it and take out clean dishes later on. No need for rubber gloves or a sink full of suds. But your dishwasher is prone to burn out after all that work.
4 signs it is time to replace your dishwasher
Here are some tell-tale signs it’s time for a new dishwasher.
1. The door doesn’t close properly
Do make sure there isn’t a saucepan handle in the way before you decide it’s broken but if it still doesn’t close, it might be a broken latch – a fairly quick fix.
2. The drain is blocked
If you have a pool of water in the bottom of the dishwasher after its cycle, there's probably a drainage issue. Check for of food or stray utensils – if the drain seems clear, there may be a bigger problem.
3. Your dishes are left cold
Dishwashers use a heating element to wash dishes in hot water. If this element is broken, the dishwasher will still run its cycle – but with cold water.
4. You've spotted a leak
The most obvious sign you will see is a puddle of dishwater on the floor, but not all leaks are as easy to spot. If your dishwasher has sprung a slow leak you might not notice till it’s too late.
Here’s what to watch out for:
- * Flecks of rust inside or on the floor around the dishwasher.
- * Cracks on the inside of the dishwasher.
- * Water on the floor.
- * Adjacent cupboards have water damage.
Some leaks are easy to fix, but others are expensive – especially if the floor and cupboards are damaged. A quick check behind the kickboard every few weeks could help you spot a leak early.
