Dishwasher & Disposal Maintenance Tips

Dishwasher: To decrease the hard water build up that can shorten the working life of your dishwasher, clean the dishwasher with vinegar every 3-4 months. Put a cup of vinegar into the machine, run a normal wash cycle (with no dishes), and let the dishwasher clean itself.

Garbage Disposal: Keep odors away by periodically cleaning your disposal by just putting ice down it. Be sure and start the unit first, before putting a handful of ice into the drain. Additionally, many people also put some orange or lemon peels into it to give the disposal a fresh scent.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you get here?

We completely understand that if your dishwasher is not functioning properly, you want to have a professional at your home quickly. Reach out to us and we will arrange for a specialist to come to your home as soon as possible at a time that’s convenient for you.

Should I fix or replace my dishwasher?

Unfortunately, some service calls conclude with our technicians recommending the purchase of a new appliance, particularly if the cost of repairs will be close to the expense of a new unit. The average lifespan of a dishwasher is 7 to 9 years, so if you have had your appliance for about that length of time and come across a significant problem, it’s probably time to start looking into buying a new dishwasher. Another factor to consider is energy efficiency and new features now available. It may be worth it to replace your appliance with a newer model that is more water-efficient. Also, getting a newer dishwasher can update the look of your kitchen.

If you decide to replace your dishwasher, one of our specialists can get your new appliance hooked up quickly and correctly.

What can I do to extend my dishwasher’s life?

There are a few different things you can do to keep your dishwasher working in great condition for as long as possible:

  • Scrape all leftover food off of your dishes and into the trash before putting them into the dishwasher.
  • Clean your filters regularly and replace them if they look damaged
  • As needed, wipe the door seal with white vinegar and a dishrag to clean out any food residue that may have collected inside your appliance.
  • Don’t overload your dishwasher.
  • Every three to four months, pour white vinegar or a dishwasher safe cleaning product into your dishwasher and let it run a cycle with no dishes inside.

ABC’s specialists are happy to perform diagnostics on your appliance to ensure your dishwasher is working efficiently. When we’re done, we will provide you with a written report on the health of your dishwasher.

Which dishwasher parts can you replace?

There are many different components that work together to make your dishwasher run properly.

Depending on the cause of your problems, we can replace your dishwasher’s:

  • Thermostat
  • Timer
  • Pump assemblies
  • Float switch
  • Solenoid
  • Heating element
  • Gasket
  • Wash and drain impellers

“Jeremy was great today- took care of our ant issues and even set up a follow-up to make sure things got taken care of in the back yard (which my son was supposed to unlock, but being a tween he slept through the appointment.) We've trusted ABC for 20 years, and their services became even more important when our daughter was found to have a fire ant allergy. We've trusted ABC this long because they take care of the issues, and they come back out and re-treat if necessary. Great service, great technicians!”
