Dishwasher Flooding Repair DIY

A common problem the folks at MP run into with their customers is dishwasher flooding. Luckily, just last week, we came across a great blog written by Chris Barnes of the Huffington Post about some DIY tips for checking your dishwasher before you call out a plumber. And since we’re in the business of trying to save you money, we’d like to pass on the info. Thanks for the great write-up Chris!

Some Main Takeaways

If you find your dishwasher flooding:

  • First things first – unplug the dishwasher or turn off the circuit at the breaker box
  • Remove all the dish racks and check the drain grate on the floor of the machine – food and debris can clog this and cause flooding
  • If the water doesn’t drain after clearing the drain grate check the hose running from the machine and see if there’s a clog
  • Remove the hose connection from under the sink
  • Grab a bucket and remove some of the water from the washing machine to make it easier to pull the washer out (you’ll need to)
  • Run some water from your sink into the dishwasher hose to see if the line clears
  • Re-assemble and see if it drains properly – if yes then hooray! – if not then give us a call and we’ll see what we can do, or refer you to someone who can help!

Thanks for your time folks! As always drop any questions, comments, or suggestions below. Remember, the Proof is in the Plumbing!
