We have years of experience troubleshooting and repairing dishwashers. The most common reason for service calls for this appliance is loud noises. The reason is typically a washer arm bearing, broken pump housing, or motor bushing. We carry the parts and tools to fix these problems on the spot for all major brands and models.


There are two causes for dishwashers leaking water. The first a problem with the door latch or closure which will need to be replaced. The second problem is a failed water inlet valve. Both of these problems are easily reparable when we arrive on the service call. We carry parts for this problem for  GE, Kenmore, Whirlpool and all major and common brands of dishwashers.


The first step if the dishwasher does not start is to make sure it is plugged in and then check to make sure the circuit breaker did not trip off. The next step if the problem persists is to call us for a service appointment the same day. This is caused by problems with door latch switches, thermal fuses, electronic controls or motor relays. We carry all the parts and tools to fix this problem for all major brands.


A functioning dishwasher fills with water to wash and drains the water when the dishes are clean. It won’t fill if when is a broken float switch, door switch water inlet valve. The dishwasher won’t drain when the drain pump is broken or there is a problem with the drain hose.


A dishwasher needs to clean the dishes. This does not happen when there is a broken water tube, housing gasket, filter, or spray arm. Fortunately for Richmond residents, Richmond Appliance Repair has manufacturer parts to repair each of these dishwasher problems on the spot.

e dishes will still be dirty if there is a broken or filter or spray arm.


A dishwasher needs to dry your dishes as well as wash them. This does not happen correctly when there is a broken heating element, thermostat problem, or trouble with the rinse aid dispenser. We routinely repair all of these issues on same-day, one visit service calls.


When the dishwasher does not dispense soap it cannot wash the dishes. The problem in this case is a timer, wax motor, or broken bi-metal release. Call us for same-day repair on all major brands and models.
