A quick guide to Bosch dishwasher repair

Inevitably, your dishwasher will have some sort of malfunction. It might be as simple as a clogged filter, or it could be a complete meltdown that requires replacement. You can fix a lot of dishwasher problems yourself, but some repairs are best left to professionals. If you have a Bosch dishwasher, repairs may be few and far between since Bosch makes some serious workhorses. However, it doesn?t hurt to brush up on a few quick tips.

Check your owner's manual

If you want to know how to repair a Bosch dishwasher, then the owner's manual should be your first stop for directions. The owner's manual has a great troubleshooting guide that will help you do simple repairs and replacements yourself. Sometimes all you need to do is remove a clog from the sprayer arm, filter or supply hose. Other times you might have to replace a latch or other small device. The owner's manual can help you diagnose and repair these simple issues without a lot of grief. Additionally, the owner's manual comes with a guide to regular cleaning and maintenance, as well as a pictorial dish loading guide. If you follow these tips, you will minimize a lot of potential issues.

Diagnose the problem

If you think you might need a repair, Bosch dishwasher owners? manuals will only get you so far. Since Bosch dishwashers use a different system than, say, a Kenmore, you might not have such an easy time doing more complicated repairs yourself. For example, if your dishwasher isn?t running through the cycles properly, you might have a problem with your timer motor. This type of repair is more advanced than the tips in the owner?s manual, so you may need to look up tutorials or call a professional for some assistance. Other repairs might not be so hard. If your dishes aren?t getting clean, you might just need to check the valves or sink drain. Or maybe you only need to replace the sprayer arm, a simple and easy fix that is covered in the owner?s manual.

Call a professional

If your dishwasher is making seriously bad motor noises or exhibits problems that can?t be fixed by cleaning out clogs, then you need to call a technician. Sears keeps technicians on hand for just these sorts of things. You may also find it worth your while to call a technician for more simple repairs, or repairs not covered by the owner?s manual. In the time it takes you to diagnose the problem, run to the hardware store for parts and get the new part in, you could have a technician do it for you while you sip a mug of coffee.

Dishwasher repair and maintenance can be simple and easy or you might need an extra hand. Whether you are looking for spare parts or a technician to take the job off your hands, Sears can help get your dishwasher up and running again.
