Kitchen Appliance Repair: What to Do If the Dishwasher Isn't Cleaning Well, Feasterville, Pennsylvania

In a busy kitchen where customer orders are coming in nonstop, the last thing you need is a faulty dishwasher that holds up the process. Kitchen appliance repair is never fun, but promptly addressing the issue of a dishwasher leaving spots or not cleaning well will keep your business running smoothly.

The technicians at Tech-24 have provided kitchen appliance repair and maintenance services since 1982. They have shared troubleshooting tips for dealing with a dishwasher that isn’t cleaning the way it should.

Load Your Dishwasher Properly

There’s a reason they call dishwasher loading “adult Tetris.”  An improperly loaded dishwasher is probably the number one culprit for why your plates aren’t cleaned thoroughly. When dishes are crammed into a machine and pressed up against each other, they may not come in contact with the detergent and water. Ensure there’s enough space in between dishes, even if it requires running multiple loads.  

Check for Any Blocks

This goes for your soap dispenser as well. Pot handles could prevent the latch from opening, stopping the detergent from being released.

Consider Your Detergent

If the issue isn’t with your loading technique, try looking at which detergent you use. Play around with the amount of detergent you use to see if this helps remove spots. Switching brands might also help if you deal with residue issues.

Inspect Your Water Quality

Your dishwasher water may not be hot enough to clean dishes, or the pressure might be too low to allow your machine to clean efficiently. Check your water pumps and heater to adjust the temperature and pressure as necessary. Some dishwasher brands will also allow restaurant owners to adjust the water temperature directly.
