Dishwasher Repair Guide

On the next few pages you will find information that will guide you on dishwasher repair. Repairing a dishwasher is generally the same no matter if you have a GE dishwasher, a Hotpoint dishwasher, a portable dishwasher or a Whirlpool dishwasher; they’re all pretty much the same, with a few differences that I note along the way. This is not to say the parts are interchangeable, just that the process for checking them is consistent.

In its simplest form, dishwashers do nothing more than pump water up through a wash arm, causing it to spin.


 Thus, slinging water all over your dishes for a few minutes. Then pumping out the dirty water and starting all over again with clean water, this process is repeated several times through the cycle. During one of these times (normally about the third time), the soap will be released into the dishwasher.

The most important thing to know when repairing a dishwasher is the exact problem it has. Below is a list of links that describe common problems that dishwashers have. First, and this is very important, check your dishwasher, find its exact problem and click on the link that best describes its problem. If you choose the wrong link it will lead you in the wrong path and you will be checking parts unnecessarily, but don’t worry you can always come back and start over.
