If you have any problem or breakdown in which you need to dishwasher repair, do not hesitate to ask us for help. We subject our appliances to the strictest quality controls, although that does not prevent them from sometimes suffering a setback. Remember that, to avoid unnecessary repairs to your dishwasher, effective and ongoing maintenance is essential. Pay special attention to the filter or cleaning of the spray arms, which are some of the most important parts.

A grease and lime dishwasher repair

Our liquid cleaner has been proven to be successful in removing grease and lime from the dishwasher . You should use it every one to two months or every 30 wash cycles.

If you want to avoid unnecessary repairs to your dishwasher, read the instructions very well, since you must use it with the appliance completely empty and without detergent in the dispenser. First of all, use a small part of the product and clean the less accessible areas with a dry cloth.

Once this is done, it is time to remove the aluminum protector from the cap and put the bottle upside down in the cutlery basket. If your dishwasher does not have a basket, you can fix it on the lower tray with the help of the adhesive label in the instructions, as shown in the video. Select a program of at least 65 degrees and start washing. Don’t forget to remove the tube when finished!

Fully clean spray arms

Spray arms play a vital role in the life of your dishwasher. To clean them, the first thing you have to do is extract them as indicated in the video.

Once this is done, you will see some small holes that you can clean with a toothpick. Rinse under the tap and don’t forget to clean the upper arm retaining clip as well.

Have you already completed all these steps? Put everything back in place and check that the arms rotate correctly !

Proper filter maintenance

With daily use, leftover food deposits in your dishwasher. For this reason it is important to perform regular filter maintenance .

As you can see in the video, unscrew the top and pull up. Next, clean both parts of the filter with water and the help of a soft brush, shaking at the end to remove excess water.

After completing these steps, you only have to reassemble the two parts and return the filter to its original location. Follow these steps to avoid worrying about your dishwasher repairs !

What to do if the E-18 error appears

If this error appears on your dishwasher, the first thing to do is turn off and unplug it . Next, check that the inlet and outlet hoses are not clogged. Close the water inlet, remove the hose and open the tap fully with the intention of checking that the speed is 10 liters per minute. Once this is done, close and reposition the hose .

To finish, remove the filter from the inlet hose, clean it under the tap and put it back. Do the same with all the parts that you have removed from their place and open the water tap again to have your dishwasher ready again.

What to do if error E-24 appears

If this error appears on your dishwasher, the first thing you should do is turn off and unplug it to check, secondly, that the inlet and outlet hoses are not kinked or blocked .

Also make sure the water pump isn’t blocked, then remove the filter and use a teaspoon to open the pump lid.

Before putting everything back in its place, check that the pump rotor turns freely and don’t forget to plug your dishwasher back in.

Get the pump to work perfectly

Remove the lower basket to move the spray arm for easy filter removal. To facilitate the task, you must remove, with the help of a sponge, the residual water that remains in the area of ​​the pump. With this type of action, you are already helping to avoid having to manage unexpected repairs of your dishwasher.

What to do if the water tap light appears

For these types of dishwasher repairs , it is advisable to do a detailed reading of the manual of the appliance. Also follow the advice of our technical service. The first thing to do is turn off and unplug the dishwasher, and check that the hoses are not kinked.

Close the water intake and remove the hose. Be careful with the water that it can expel! Open the tap fully and check that the speed is 10 liters per minute. Once this is done, you can close it and reposition the hose.
