Dirty Dishes Got You Down? 

We’ve all been there. You come home after a long day, ready to relax, only to find the sink overflowing with dirty dishes. You reach for your trusty dishwasher, ready to hand over the cleaning duties, but… nothing happens! The dishwasher won’t start!

Dishwashers are amazing helpers. They make a boring and long task (cleaning dishes!) seem easy. They give us more time in the evening to do important things, like hanging out with family, resting, or getting through our to-do lists. So, when our dishwasher stops working, it messes up our daily schedule.

But before you start picturing mountains of dirty dishes taking over your kitchen, don’t despair! This guide is here to help. In many cases, there are simple fixes for a dishwasher that won’t start. We’ll walk you through some easy troubleshooting steps that you can try yourself before calling in a professional. In no time, you’ll have your dishwasher humming happily again, and those dirty dishes will be a distant memory.
