We will give you the most common and still invaluable advice – please, read the manual guide supplied along with your dishwasher. Yes, you might find there some solutions and rules of correct use. Nevertheless, if a breakdown is already plain to see, then only Smart Appliance techs will smoothly repair it.
We gathered here 10 most common problems with your dishwasher and our advice to avoid some of them. This useful information will help you to prevent breakdowns in the future.
The most frequent reason is the broken door latch or door switch/ The dishwasher recognizes the door unlocked and does not let the cycle start. The problems can also concern insufficient wire contact between the key board and main board due to humidity or the broken Start button. Probably the main board is faulty. If there are cockroaches in your house, they can also cause malfunctions: they live inside the dishwasher and their excrement can cause main board short tracks and therefore its misfunctioning. The most ordinary reason sometimes is the absence of power voltage due to bad wire contact or broken circuit bracker. Call us – we will perform a comprehensive diagnosis and reveal the reason of fault.
The clogged drain system might be responsible for that. The dishwasher discharges water too slowly and cannot completely finish the process, so the error is occurred. Another reason is a restricted water supply. In this case the dishwasher is unable to fill the necessary volume of water and for the reason of “error” gets stopped. Because of insufficient door housing, the dishwasher may start working and during the process water sprays can press the door and break contacts of lock switch which results in operational disruption. There also can be various failures in main boards program, all of them are subject to detect within the full diagnosis mode. We know how to perform diagnostic tests of all dishwasher brands and models and will easily repair yours.
There are several reasons for that: malfunctions of circulation pump, clogged washing injectors, broken soap dispenser and other probable problems. To precisely find out the source of the problem call us, we will test the system and repair it.
The problem can be rooted in both mechanical and electronical aspects. The coarse filter can often get clogged or fragile glasses gets broken upon incorrect dishwasher loading and their fragments block the drain pump. In certain models the soft filter screen can be damaged and food leftovers also block the drain pump. Sometimes the drain pipe gets bended and water is blocked which results in an operational error and the process disruption. In certain cases the drain pump is burns out and there happened the control board malfunctions. The pressure switch is also can be faulty. If you dishwasher does not drain water it means it is broken. Call us, we will fix it.
Possibly, the broken glass touches the propeller of drain pump or sprinklers. But much more likely it is a sound of worn bearings of circulation pump or drain pump. Do not let your dishwasher to get completely broken – call us.
It might be just incorrectly loaded dish inside and you need just to reload and dislocate dish. Or there are foreign objects inside. Wrong installation can also cause vibration. But sometimes the drain/circulation pump propeller is broken and the dishwasher vibrates. Whatever it is, we will repair – determine and eliminate the problem.
It might be a broken or clogged water valve. Also, the bended water supply hose or very poor pressure of water system can cause the problem. The full diagnosis will reveal the source of malfunctions and help to repair.
The most common cause is the broken water valve. Water do not stop filling after turning off the water valve and dishwasher is overfilled. Or it is about the broken water level sensor or water level switch which do not stop water filling. Do not wait water leaks – call us to have your dishwasher repaired.
The most frequent reason is old door gasket. During the operating process water sprays hit the door and water leak happens. Another reason for that is malfunctioning water valve or water level switch. In certain cases, because of vibration or long usage period, there happens cracks in drain hose or water supply hose which result in water leaks. Rarely, because of mechanical damages there might be cracks in plastic body or the metal body gets rusty. Water leaks can severely damage your floor or furniture and result in expensive renovation. Urgently call us – we will come and help!
In this case the problem might be about the heating element or cut-off thermostat. It might be a simple repair – just some parts shall be replaced. But in many modern dishwashers the circulation pump is responsible for dish drying because the heating element is built in it and the whole part should be replaced. Therefor such types of repair are of higher price. Another reason is a broken air pump which pumps hot wet air out of the dishwasher within the drying cycle and the full diagnosis is a must to know the exact reason of malfunction. We know how to perform the ideal diagnosis and will help you to repair your appliance!

We will never call another appliance repair company again. Our technician is named Alex and he really knows his stuff plus he cares. He troubleshot the problem and had to get a part from another city. It was going to be three days before he would be able to get back with the part. We told Alex we had our special anniversary party scheduled over the weekend and what horrible timing. He really seemed to care even though we told him that we would just buy gallons of water. Alex got the part from another tech and returned THAT DAY to get our job done

02 October 2019

08 September 2019
I am fully satisfied with SAS repair. It was quick and seamless. In fact, I had to spend only three hours from calling them to having my oven fixed. Alex showed up in 1 hour, carried out the diagnosis and solved. The problem was not that difficult, may be a less professional tech could solve it too, but my saved TIME is invaluable. Thank you!
05 September 2019
Our dishwasher door was broken. They came out promptly and fixed the door. Very professional
03 September 2019
When my dishwasher got broken, I had to call several services until I reached SAS. They were flexible on time and price policy. Since my tech arrive on time, I can conclude that their techs keep a schedule and do not break the agreed time. He also was polite and skilled. I am satisfied, my dishwasher is fixed. Good service.
01 September 2019
I received the best experience. The tech was professional and made all-out efforts to complete the repair. There were some special factors influencing the delivery of required parts, but Alex managed to solve all issues perfectly! He always was in touch and informed me about everything. It was not a simple work because my appliance is exceptional and of elite brand and includes leapfrog smart technologies, so careful and highly skilled handle is a must, therefore the repair was not ordinary
01 September 2019
Very quick and professional service on my refrigerator ice maker.

Honest and client-oriented service. Alex approaches the problem in a very professional manner. He diagnosed my range and offered the best solution.

So, I decided to get a new range and surely saved a good deal of money because my it does not require expensive parts and works now. Thank you, Alex for honest and excellent approach to your clients!
14 August 2019
Fast, thoroughly, attentive, answered all our questions and gave some advice on further usage. It might seem weird, but I never read a manual for my dishwasher. Alex kindly explained some moments which I could learn from the manual. He was so diplomatic that even did not mention that. SAS, thank you for not hurting my feelings! )) By now I have learnt the manual by heart, lol
12 August 2019

10 August 2019
For 10 years we have been with SAS. Alex is helpful and customer-oriented expert. I am an older and have never wrote reviews because it is difficult for me to use a comp.

30 June 2019
Smart Appliances was a great choice, which is hard to make when searching for washer repair online. From the first call to schedule and through to the service tech, the experience was extremely professional and pleasant.The appointment was scheduled at my convenience within 24 hours – the switch on the door of washer went out and the tech was able to replace it on the spot during the initial call. For me, $240 is an affordable expense for the combo Maytag washer / dryer that I purchased in approx. 2010 that has not needed any service until now. I am very pleased with their service, would use them again, and would recommend them to my neighbors
26 June 2019
Arrival time was as told. Technician was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Would use them in the future — hopefully not too soon though!
04 March 2019
