Q. What are some common issues with dishwashers?
Common issues with dishwashers are not starting, not cleaning, an error code on the display panel, water leakage, door not opening or closing and the machine making too much noise.
Q. What brands of dishwashers are repaired at HomeGenie?
We repair most well-known dishwasher brands sold and used in Abu Dhabi and UAE. This includes, but is not limited to, Whirlpool, Samsung, LG, Haier, Nikki, Daewoo, Super General, Hisense, Westpoint, Frigidaire, Indesit, Hitachi, Bosch, Siemens, Akai and more.
Q. How long does it take to fix a dishwasher? Will it need to be taken away?
Depending on the diagnosis, it can take between an hour and a few weeks. Mostly, the inspection and repair is managed in the same visit. But sometimes, it needs to be taken to the workshop and parts need to be ordered. With HomeGenie, we provide free pickup and delivery, if and when required. Spare parts for most well-known brands are usually easily available. However, at times they have to be ordered from another country which may take a few weeks.
Q. What kind of dishwasher spare parts are used in case something needs to be replaced?
At HomeGenie, we use only genuine spare parts available at the original manufacturer and their authorized distributors. The warranty on these spare parts provided by the manufacturer may vary and such warranty is extended to the customer, as is. Spare parts for the latest brands are usually available the same day, but with lesser-known brands or older models, they are difficult to source and might require some time. With our market positioning, we are generally able to source parts faster than most other service providers.
Q. What precautions should I take to avoid a dishwasher breakdown?
Generally, dishwashers require low maintenance and taking care of them on a regular basis can avoid surprise breakdowns.
1. It uses a number of pipe connections to function correctly, including the water line in your home. The connection should be reviewed to see if it allows for water flow without causing leaks.
2. Another common problem is the machine not filling up with water or that water not draining. This could create further problems like flooding in other parts of the machine because of improper draining.
3. A dishwasher often fails to function when it is unable to read that the door is closed. This could be due to a number of reasons like the sensor or seal might stop working due to wear and tear and may need to be repaired or replaced.
We strongly recommend a preventive dishwasher service once a year, at the least.
Q. How much does it cost to fix a dishwasher ?
Fixing a dishwasher can cost you anything between AED 150 to AED 750 depending upon the issue and the parts required.
Q. Can dishwashers be repaired ?
Yes. Almost all dishwasher issues can be repaired unless the required part is not available in the market
Q. Is it worth repairing a dishwasher ?
A new dishwasher depending on brand and model can range from AED 1500 to AED 5000. Understanding that the repair might only cost between AED 150 to AED 750, it is certainly worth getting repaired than buying a new one.
Q. What could go wrong with my dishwasher ?
The most common dishwasher issues are not starting, not cleaning, not draining, error code being displayed on the display panel, door not opening or closing, too noisy and more. This means that either there could be a mechanical, electronic/ electrical or plumbing issue.
