Buying a new dishwasher is a great experience but today’s dishwashers can be complicated to install and even worse to troubleshoot when something goes wrong. If your dishwasher isn’t acting properly, or you suspect a leak, it’s time to call Dover Plumbing Company and let our professionals get to work.

Read about three common issues we’ve seen in our years troubleshooting dishwasher problems.

Dishwasher filling and Draining: Your dishwasher has to fill with water to wash dishes properly, then the water drains out afterwards. If your dishwasher is not draining properly, or it does not fill up, this could be a sign that there is an issue with the water supply line. The water line could either be damaged or clogged.  If so, the dishwasher will not function properly.

Heating: Dishwashers generally heat the water during the washing cycle. If the water does not get hot enough you will see residue stuck to the dishes after the wash is over. Not only is this annoying but it can lead to a mechanical issue or even a water line problem. If you think the water is not warm enough, put your hand around the dishwasher vent during a cycle to see if hot air is coming out.

Wiring Connection Issues: If you suspect this a problem, you can pull your dishwasher out, and look at the wiring behind your dishwasher. Stay safe and don’t touch the wires as you look for any burns or breaks in the wiring. Dishwasher connection issues can lead to the dishwasher not turning on or working properly.

If your dishwasher has a problem call the experts at Dover Plumbing Company to  assist you. Protect the life of your dishwasher by keeping it working order.

I sincerely hope no one in Houston finds themselves in need of a plumber at 2:00 a.m. on a Monday morning but we did last night. I randomly searched for a 24-hour plumber on the internet and found Dover Plumbing. They immediately answered and got to my house within an hour (I live all the way up in Kingwood). They were at my house fixing a busted pipe that was gushing from the ceiling into my kitchen from 3 am to 6 am and did a tremendous job at a fair price. I highly recommend this company.

These guys are first class. Lisa is the greatest; plumbers came out and fixed the problem and then some.

I highly recommend.

I personally have used them for the past 30 years or so. Never had an issue Today was no different, and frankly, is my experience with the Company from scheduling, arrival time, quality of work, respectful and professional attitudes from all. I have not used, nor will I use another...In summary, Guy and Mitchell arrived right on time, went directly to the line, cleaned it out (100ft run), cleaned the work area after the task, package up the equipment, presented the bill, and were on their way. Professionalism at its finest.
