Dishwasher – Lessons Learned

We just had a dishwasher repaired and the things we learned may keep you  from thousands of dollars of repairs down the road. (It was just a latch problem.)

  1. Don’t run your dishwasher when you go to bed. The inlet valve can stick and you will wake up to a wet first floor.
  2. When you go on vacation there is a valve under the sink to turn off the water to the dishwasher – turn off the water valve to the dishwasher.
  3. The above also applies to the washing machine and any water going to the refrigerator – turn them off when leaving for vacation.
  4. Good brands he recommends – Bosch, Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, Maytag.
  5. The simpler the better – you don’t need all those fancy controls.
  6. St. Louis Appliance Repair Group did the repair.
