Why Is My Dishwasher Not Draining

Is your dishwasher refusing to drain properly? If you are tired of washing by hand due to fear of a backup, then give our professionals a call. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we offer premium commercial and residential plumbing services for property owners in New Jersey area neighborhoods. We enjoy helping our clients find ways to fix their chronic clogs, and we want to do the same for you. Get your dishwasher back under control in no time. Here is a list of the most common causes of a slow draining dishwasher and what can be done to solve the problem. 

Faulty Hose

The drain hose is an important component since it connects your dishwasher and sink together. Over time a lot of food, oil, grease and other debris can make its way into the hose via your kitchen sink. If left in place, the materials can harden and block the flow of water. Clear out the grime or change out your hose if it has become damaged in any way.  

A Clogged Filter 

Filters can also become clogged. After all, their intended purpose is to catch leftover food from your pots and plates. However, if they aren’t routinely cleaned, the small mesh filter or large basket shaped filter can become caked with residue. Be sure to clean the filters at least once per month with gentle soap and warm water. This should keep blockages to a minimum. 

Existing Plumbing Issues 

If you have already ruled out the possibility of a clogged filter or hose, then the likely cause is underlying problems with your pipes. Deep sewer line clogs, hidden pipe damage and root infiltration are all common issues that can block wastewater. If you are also having trouble with slow draining sinks and tubs or overflowing toilets, then this is probably the reason. A thorough professional plumbing inspection can pinpoint the exact source of the issue, so that it can be taken care of swiftly. A buildup of grime can often be resolved with a professional drain cleaning and hydro jetting service. Minor root invasion and leaks can usually be fixed with non-invasive trenchless pipe repairs. Severely neglected or damaged sewer lines may require a conventional replacement. A certified plumber will have the training and tools needed to inspect, diagnose and repair your pipes so you can enjoy a safe and efficient plumbing system again.
