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

“One of ABC's electricians, Joshua, did a fantastic job installing shop lighting (inside/outside), a few panels, and re-wiring multiple areas. As a small-business owner, I know how hard it is to find great workers. Josh and his team are exceptional, and ABC should keep a hold of him.”

“ABC Home & Commercial has been taking care of me and my house for over a decade. This review is for their Spring AC maintenance. They come out every year before the hot summer months arrive to make sure that my AC system will be up to the job. Randall checked everything: He conducted amp maintenance, checked the blower wheel & blower motor, checked all amps, pressures and temperatures, cleared the drain line, flushed, and primed the u-trap, checked the capacitors, contractors and safety components and washed the condenser. I would never do all that myself. Most people are lucky if they remember to put bleach (or white vinegar as Randall suggested instead) in their drain line occasionally. AC in Texas is one of those things that always goes out at the most inconvenient time. I think it's important to do my part to take care of one of the most expensive "appliances" in my home. ABC will be back in the fall to do the checkup on my heating system. A few years ago, they discovered that my heater would not have started the next time it was needed, and they were able to replace the part right then and there for a good price. The folks they send are always professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I highly recommend ABC Home & Commercial!”
