Causes for a clogged dishwasher

A clogged dishwasher can be caused by a number of things. In many cases, you can prevent a clogging by regularly maintaining the dishwasher properly. It is also possible that parts are broken, in which case there is nothing you can do about it and it just happens. The most common causes of a clogged dishwasher:

Leftovers in the dishwasher

Just like with classic dishwashing, you can get too much food or too big chunks in the dishwasher. With manual dishes, the food residue gets stuck in the kitchen drain. With a dishwasher, most food residues end up in the filter or in the drain pump. As a result, the drain pump no longer works and water with food residue remains at the bottom of the dishwasher. Proper cleaning of the drain pump and the filter already solves many problems. At the back of the dishwasher there’s the drain hose through which the dirty water is drained. It is also possible that food residues will remain in this hose.

Calcium deposits in the dishwasher

The main rule for household appliances that get into contact with water is that you have to descale regularly. Lime in the water will start to settle on the vital parts. Parts will be damaged and equipment will no longer be able to be used efficiently. This also applies to the dishwasher. Make sure that you descale the dishwasher regularly and fill it with sufficient salt, to prevent limescale in the drain from causing clogging. Limescale in the dishwasher can also lead to leakage.

Broken parts in the dishwasher

The dishwasher and all its components are subject to wear and tear. This can cause parts to break down. With a dishwasher, many crucial parts are important. You can often see in advance whether parts wear out or are broken. This always has an effect on the dishes themselves. The dishes will then no longer be properly cleaned. If the drain hose is broken, you can suffer from both leakage and a blockage. It is wise to call in an unblocking service that can trace the exact cause and, if necessary, replace parts.

Many blockages are caused by poor maintenance and incorrect use of the dishwasher. Therefore, apply the necessary maintenance on a regular basis and always pre-rinse when the dishes are very dirty.
