With over 50 years in the appliance repair Vancouver industry, McIver’s Appliances know dishwasher repair better than anyone else. So we’ve compiled this list of the most common reasons your dishwasher isn’t doing its job.

1) You’re loading your dishwasher wrong

Load dishes so that the dirty side is facing the water sprays. Pans and platters should go along the sides and back of the racks so they don’t block the detergent from reaching the other dishes. Mugs and glasses should be placed in the in the top rack and angled as much as possible to prevent water from pooling on upside down cups.

2) You need more heat

If you have a hot water feed into your dishwasher the temperature should be a minimum of 60 degrees to ensure an effective clean. If you think your hot water supply may be underperforming, holding a thermometer under the tap will tell you if you need to turn the boiler up.

3) Scummy Seals

If you haven’t cleaned the rubber seals that run around the perimeter of the dishwasher door lately (or ever) it is likely a build-up of food debris and soap scum is impairing the effectiveness of your clean. Use a toothbrush to scrub the gunk away and you’ll be amazed with the results.

4) You need professional help
