5 Signs Your Commercial Dishwasher Needs Repaired

When it comes to running a restaurant, things wouldn't go as smoothly without a commercial dishwasher. On holidays and other busy weekends, its imperative that you have clean dishes. If your dishwasher is malfunctioning, you're going to have trouble staying on top of orders and running an effective kitchen. Let's take a look at a few signs that your dishwasher may need to be repaired:

1. You've run the dishwasher, but the dishes are not coming out clean. 

The point of a dishwasher is cleaning dishes so that you don't have to do them by hand. If they're coming out dirty, that kind of defeats the purpose. While the problem could be that you didn't stack the dishes the right way or didn't use enough detergent, there could be a bigger issue that requires repair from a food-service equipment maintenance company in Missouri or Western Illinois.

2. Dirty water is not draining from your dishwasher. 

There's a common misconception that water pooling at the bottom of a dishwasher is normal. However, if water is not draining from your dishwasher, there's probably an issue with either the drain line or the drain hose. Check for kinks, damage or tears in the hoses before calling a professional to repair it.

3. The floor around your dishwasher is soaking wet. 

Ensure that you are using dishwasher rated soap and that your dishwasher is not overfilling with water. Inspect the door latch, hinges, gaskets and seals for damage. In addition, check the water drain hoses, inlet valve, pump and spray pumps. If you find any damage, you'll need to get them repaired or replaced as soon as possible.    

4. Weird noises are coming from your dishwasher. 

If you hear unusual noises coming from your dishwasher, or any kitchen appliance for that matter, there's probably something very wrong. While some sounds could be attributed to rattling dishes, any humming or thumping could be an indication of a bigger problem with either the pump or valves. If that's the case, you'll want to call a Missouri and Western Illinois restaurant equipment maintenance provider

5. The dishwasher won't turn on at all. 

The first obvious reason your dishwasher might not come on is that the power cord isn't plugged in. You should also check the circuit breaker. If the power is for sure getting to the dishwasher, check that the door is completely shut. If the dishwasher still won't come on, there's likely a bigger issue and you may want to consult a professional Missouri restaurant equipment repair company.
