Dishwasher repair protects the environment
An important reason for a dishwasher repair is the environmental aspect. Of course, newer models are often more water and energy efficient, but the production of a new dishwasher, as with other electrical appliances, requires many resources. If you have your dishwasher repaired by our customer service department in Murfreesboro, you are also protecting the environment at the same time.

If spare parts are needed, we can of course supply them for repair across all brands.

Maintain the dishwasher properly
Even dishwashers need some maintenance from time to time. For example, if you notice that the rinse is getting worse over time, this is a fairly good indicator that you should carry out a comprehensive cleaning. If you notice that leftovers are collecting at the bottom, be sure to remove them immediately. Then check for clogged and dirty spray arms since these often result in a poor wash. If the sieve is damaged, be sure to replace it as soon as possible. A new sieve does not cost much and often does not even have to be purchased directly from the manufacturer.
The spray arm can also be removed from time to time and carefully cleaned. The biggest danger for a dishwasher, however, is the lime present in the water. The lime is usually removed via ion exchange within the machine.
When to repair vs replace
There are several recommendations as to when repairing a household appliance is worthwhile. One of the biggest factors for a dishwasher is the age of the appliance. Because newer devices have a much lower power and water consumption than older devices, it is possible to save more money by purchasing a new machine. The following are common recommendations:
• Dishwasher is older than 10 years: For a dishwasher older than 10 years, a repair is usually discouraged. First, the power consumption of older devices is usually no longer up to date. Secondly, the device is generally in decline so the next defect may not be far behind. A repair is worthwhile only if the costs amount to less than 20% of the price of a new device. Defective equipment older than 12 years should be disposed of instead of repaired because the power consumption is simply too high.
• Dishwasher is between 8 and 10 years old: For dishwashers between the ages of 8 and 10, it depends on the amount of repair costs. A repair can still be worthwhile if the costs amount to up to 45% of the price of a new device.
• Dishwasher is between 5 and 7 years old: For dishwashers between the ages of 5 and 7 years, the cost should not exceed 60% of the price of a new appliance.
• Dishwashers up to 4 years old: For dishwashers that are younger than 4 years, a repair is almost always worthwhile, especially if only wear parts have to be replaced. Nevertheless, the repair costs should not exceed 75% of the price of a new device.
Tips: How to avoid common issues
Some problems are due to poor care of the dishwasher or issues in the water supply, which are easily avoidable. It is important, for example, that you rinse your dishes before placing them in the dishwasher. Common food items like pasta or rice like to sit in the holes of the spray arms and clog them. Should dirt accumulate in the sieve at the bottom of the machine, you should thoroughly clean the sieve otherwise the dirt will end up on the dishes again and you could incorrectly believe that the machine is not working correctly.
Every month, a rinse with the highest possible temperature is recommended to kill germs and remove unpleasant odors. You should also clean the door seals regularly, preferably with a vinegar cleaner. If you live in an area with hard water, it is also important to remove calcium buildup regularly. You can purchase the detergent that you put into the cutlery basket on an empty rinse, or you can use a simple vinegar and baking soda mixture. Either way, your dishwasher will shine like new once the rinse is complete!
To recap, the decision as to whether repairing your dishwasher is still worthwhile depends on various factors:
• Age of the device
• Expected repair costs
• The price of a new dishwasher
But there are also a few individual factors that can influence the decision:
• Available budget
• Satisfaction with the old device
• Frequency of use
Ultimately, you cannot really look into any appliance and completely rule out follow-up repairs. To extend the life of your dishwasher and avoid as many repairs as possible, it is important to care for it on a regular basis.
Dishwasher repair Murfreesboro: Fast help
If you are having problems with your dishwasher, give us a call and one of our qualified technicians will come to your home as soon as possible to evaluate the issue. Often the problem is a leaking hose, so that water is not being pumped out of the unit. Another common cause is blockages in the drainage area or a defective door seal. As soon as our appliance repair technician has diagnosed the problem, it can sometimes be fixed the same day. If the pump is broken or if electronic components have to be exchanged, it will have to be disassembled and taken to our workshop for dishwasher repair in Murfreesboro. One of our specialists will check the machine for possible damage and install a new pump or a new heating relay. In the course of the repair even slightly damaged parts will be exchanged immediately, so that your dishwasher will remain in working order for a long time. After the dishwasher repair in Murfreesboro, we do a test run to make sure that the machine is working perfectly again.
Other reasons why your dishwasher is not working properly
In many cases, overheating due to a faulty temperature limiter will cause the unit to stop washing properly, and if the water can not be heated at all, the dishes will not be cleaned. With other dishwashers, a broken program switch explains why the device can no longer be switched on.
Used dishwashers for resale
If you want to part with an old dishwasher because you have decided to replace it, you are welcome to leave your old appliance to us. Even if the dishwasher is still fully functional, it will be thoroughly checked by our employees and, for safety reasons, have a few seals replaced. The machine is completely cleaned and then offered for resale when customers are interested in used equipment.
Old dishwashers as spare parts
If you want to dispose of a dishwasher, just give us a call and we will pick it up at your place. At the in-house workshop, we disassemble the devices and use intact spare parts for the dishwasher repair in Murfreesboro. Whether you are looking for a cover for the detergent dispenser or a program counter for your old machine, you will find a large selection of used spare parts that are no longer available in the trade.
