Have you noticed your dishes are no longer coming out of the dishwasher as clean as they once did? There’s likely a reason behind that more than not using enough pods or detergent. With the help of some basic troubleshooting, here are three common reasons why your dishes are no longer getting cleaned.

Clog in the Drain

Check the bottom of the appliance when removing the dishes. Is there standing water? If so, that means there’s a clog. When there’s a clog, you will have dirty water splashing up against the dishes. In order to prevent this from happening again, you will need to clear out the clog.

Wand Isn’t Fully Extending

There’s a chance the wand inside your appliance isn’t fully extending when in use. This can lead to all sorts of problems, and it prevents your dishes from becoming clean. When this happens, you likely need to have the dishwasher serviced.

Wand Is Blocked

Perhaps the wand in your appliance is fully extending, but instead, it is blocked during the washing cycle. When this is the case, it is important to check how you load the appliance. Make sure you don’t have dishes pushed right against the wand during a washing cycle. If you do, this will prevent the rest of the dishes from becoming clean. It may take some adjusting in how you load the appliance, but it may be all you need to do.

After you perform these troubleshooting tips and tricks, it is important to bring in certified professionals to repair your dishwasher. This will restore your dishwasher back to its original functionality and help improve the cleanliness of your dishes.
