Dishwasher heating element faults

Dishwashers are a fairly new technology that very quickly entered our life. Now it is difficult for us to imagine everyday life without this kitchen appliance. And this is not strange, because such a device performs daily and routine work that we once did constantly. It is unlikely that someone wants to stand near the sink and wash a stack of dirty dishes while having such a multifunctional assistant in the house. However, it is never fun when your favorite household appliance stops working. But, whatever the situation, trained appliance repair professionals will find the cost-efficient solution to up your device as quickly as possible.

Heating element breakages

The most common malfunction of washing machines and dishwashers is the breakdown of the heating element. Its main function, both in the washing machine and in the dishwasher, is to adjust the temperature. Dishwasher heating elements come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and thicknesses. But whatever the heating element is, it can break only due to the appearance of scale on its surface. Usually, the scale appears due to the destructive action of the hard water.

Professional technician advice to avoid such problems is using special chemicals, softening the water preventing the formation of scale on the parts of the device. It also can happen that the heating element fails for a simple reason of aging. Nevertheless, in one situation or another, replacing the heating element is the only way out. We do not recommend doing this kind of dishwasher repair yourself, as you risk harming your faulty home appliance. This procedure can be very difficult for the average user, therefore, it is better to call trained appliance repair professionals who will quickly cope with such a task. Besides, you need to find a high-quality and original heating element for your dishwashing machine model. Our Toronto appliance repair specialists can help you with this too, as they are equipped with all necessary spare parts of high-quality.

The principles of dishwasher operation

The use of dishwashers has a number of rules to maximize the potential of the machine. Most importantly, it’s necessary to decide on the class of the dishwashing machine and its functions before buying. Before turning it on for the first time, make sure to study all the modes of its operation and safety requirements. Then select a dishwashing program depending on how dirty the kitchen utensils are.

The principle of operation of the dishwasher is very simple: the water is supplied using pressure nozzles. Considering that the nozzles and cassettes with dishes are constantly moving, all kitchen utensils are washed. The intensity of the dishwashing process and the pressure of water flow are directly proportional. The most important difference between manual washing and a dishwasher is that the kitchenware is divided into groups inside the machine. That is why this household appliance has such components as:

  • Baskets for kitchenware (special trays of large sizes for plates and other dishes). This design allows for fixing all pieces of the dishes and ensuring high-quality and reliable washing.
  • Mounts for glasses and other small dishes of this type, baskets for forks and spoons (similar to regular dish tray but much smaller in size and intended for washing metal utensils).

If your dishwasher basket is damaged contact our dishwasher repair services in Toronto and GTA and we fix it.
