I called this company because my dishwasher was not working properly. The dishwasher would start but would not clean the dishes. The repairman did an assessment and told me that there appeared to be nothing wrong with the dishwasher. He said that the cleanser fully dissolved when he ran the dishwasher. I told him that when we run the dishwasher the all-in one detergent does not dissolve and can be found at the bottom of the dishwasher, pretty much intact. He suggested that I run it with a vinegar rinse or buy a jet cleaning solution and run the dishwasher, because the pipes could be clogged. He also suggested that I switch from the all-in-one pellets to a powder. I did all of these things and the dishwasher is still not working. I took time off from work and spent $99.00 and I have called another company to fix the dishwasher.

Cooktop and dishwasher services were excellent. The top rack of the dishwasher could not be repaired so an appointment was scheduled to replace it. That appointment has not taken place yet.

The appointment took a couple of hours. They checked the dishwasher, washer and dryer. They were impressive. They educated me and showed me how to clean the dishwasher. They installed sturdier hoses in my dishwasher. I'd consider having them back on an annual basis.

Best experience I've EVER had with an appliance repairman!!! I noticed that the dishes on the top rack weren't getting clean, so I came to Angie's List to find recommendations. After reading the great reviews for Appliance Geek, I called at around 11 AM on October 7, and I was told that the technician could be there at noon. After looking at our 11 year old dishwasher, he told me that the motor would need to be replaced, among other things, and asked if I'd heard whistling sounds (I had, but had no idea that anything was wrong). He said the he could repair it, but recommended that I put the nearly $500 in repair costs towards a new dishwasher instead. That tells me that he's honest - I've found that not many repairmen will recommend taking a $59 service call over a $500 repair. I thanked him and he left. I went out that evening to buy a new dishwasher at Home Depot, and was going to have them haul the old dishwasher away ($25) and install the new one ($159). But then the sales clerk start asking me what kind of pipes/hoses I had, was it hardwired, etc. She was very clear that if there was a certain type of hose, they would not install it once they arrived, and I would need to call someone else. On top of that, I would have to pull the old dishwasher out myself and have it sitting out for them when they arrived with the new one. I quickly called Appliance Geek, and he told me to let him know when it was delivered, to leave the old one in place (we can haul it to the county dump ourselves), and he would pull the old one out and install the new one for $145. He was incredible - on time for both appointments, friendly, trustworthy, and reasonably priced. I'll never have an appliance installed by anyone else again!

Provider replaced spring in dishwasher door so it stays propped open (does not fall to the floor). He cleaned old gunk from the inside of the dishwasher, and gave me a cleaner solution so that the dishwasher would work better to wash and dry dishes and glassware cleanly. My only complaint is that the dishwasher door spring seems too tight now; door does not open flat.

The technician arrived on time and diagnosed the problem. He returned later with a hard to find part (the dishwasher is very old) and repaired my dishwasher. He was very professional and knowledgeable about about the appliance.

Very well. The technician fixed the washing machine, but gave a quote for the dishwasher that made it more economical to buy a new dishwasher. He was quite knowledgeable and helpful about many of our appliances. Very reasonable charge.

It went well. The dishwasher problem was that the plumber fixing a clogged sink had shut off the water to the dishwasher. They had the part to fix the dryer, even though not on the original plan.

My Kitchen-aid dishwasher leaked. The technician diagnosed the problem as a failed pump motor. There was also a problem with the computer control board (unrelated to the failed pump motor). The technician provided me with an estimate to fix the problem. Unfortunately the cost was close to what a new dishwasher would cost. I elected to not repair and purchase a new dishwasher. The technician provided advise on what to look for in a new dishwasher - the model I have is prone to such leaks - he suggested another model. I checked consumer reports and ended up purchasing a BOSCH.

Recent Review: Dishwasher needed service. Office staff was friendly and were able to schedule an appointment relatively soon. Office called as requested to let me know when the service person was on his way. The service person seemed a little frazzled, but got right to work taking apart the drain area of the dishwasher to locate a tiny plastic bead that had gotten into the internals. Amazingly, he found the 3 parts it had broken into and an olive pit that we didn't expect to be in there. Dishwasher is working properly now.

Recent Review: Provider replaced spring in dishwasher door so it stays propped open (does not fall to the floor).

My only complaint is that the dishwasher door spring seems too tight now; door does not open flat.

For anyone who has to start hand washing, rinsing and drying dishes, a working dishwasher is a treasure. When yours acts up, act quickly to find local, reliable dishwasher repair. 

What are the most common issues leading to dishwasher repair?

Leaks are the #1 problem in failing dishwashers. Leaks can occur in the hoses routing water to and from the dishwasher. Generally the hoses themselves do not fail, but their connections do. Common: the rubber gasket inside the hose end. 

Rarely, a failed door gasket —the rubber seal around the door — will allow water to seep or spray out around the door, possibly ruining a kitchen floor. 

Other frequently encountered issues that probably justify a repair call: 

  • Dishes do not clean
  • Dishwasher does not fill with water
  • Dishwasher will not start
  • Dishwasher does not drain
  • Door latch fails
  • Unusual or new noises coming from dishwasher

If your dishwasher does not drain, check the filter to ensure it is not clogged with food debris or plastic. Almost all other operating problems encountered with dishwashers are beyond the typical homeowner's ability to repair.

What parts typically fail?

A dishwasher is a remarkably robust assembly of electrical and water-related parts.

SFGate pegs the average life span at 12 years, but some high-wear parts can fail far sooner. 

Important parts that fail and can be replaced efficiently:

  • Door latch or seal
  • Drain pump or fill valve
  • Pressure switch
  • Soap dispenser

Costs for these parts are also modest, with short repair times. 

How much should dishwasher repair near me cost?

The national average for dishwasher repair is $159, with companies charging between $75 and $150 per hour.

If you receive a repair estimate of around $500, consider getting a new dishwasher rather than spending money on repairing the old model. 

Angie's List recommends being as specific as possible when calling a repair service. Give the brand name and model number; identify symptoms but avoid diagnosing the repair needed. 

One the repair technician is on site, do not authorize repairs without an initial estimate. If the cost is too high, pay the time charge and decline the repair. 

You may seek three repair estimates, but the cost to the household in inconvenience (by delaying for the estimates) may not be worth the money saved. Use a local, reliable appliance repair service and ask to see the old parts the technician says were replaced.
