There isn’t anything more irritating than an appliance which will not properly work when you need it to. If the dishwasher you have isn’t draining, it might be an instance of a clogged sewer line. A dishwasher is connected to the kitchen sink’s drain system and water supply line. If either of them gets clogged, the dishwasher will not get all of the water it requires to clean your dishes. Food or additional debris might be the culprit, yet whatever the problem is, it is vital that you recognize the indications of a clogged dishwasher in order for you to get it immediately repaired. Here are 5 warning signs that the dishwasher is clogged:
If you can hear a gurgling sound coming from the drains, it might be water trying to “break through a roadblock.” Clogs may occur inside the primary or secondary sewer line lines; therefore, if you can hear that noise, make sure you get a plumber out to diagnose the clog’s location.
If you’re able to tell that the kitchen sink or dishwasher is slowly draining, there may be a near-clog inside the kitchen sewer line. You will want to obtain help as soon as you can because a near-clog might cause a fully clogged kitchen sink and dishwasher.
If the dishwasher is operating and water is backed up out of your kitchen sink, there may be an issue. Switch the dishwasher off and run your garbage disposal to make sure there isn’t any food stuck in the drain or producing a clog. If the water backup continues, immediately contact a plumbing professional.
If you open your dishwasher after the cycle is finished and find water resting on the bottom, it means the appliance did not correctly drain – and there’s an issue. Troubleshoot to figure out the cause of the clogged dishwasher or contact a professional appliance repair company.
Similarly, if you open your dishwasher after it has run and see that the dishes aren’t clean, it might mean it did not fill up with water. It’d indicate a clog in the primary or secondary kitchen line.
