New Year's Day in Pasadena; if you're not down watching the big parade, chances are you've got guests over and the plasma TV on, watching the Bowl games. One thing you're probably not looking to do is finding someplace for dishwasher repair.
Dishwasher Repair Companies in
Pasadena is not known for its diligent dishwasher repairmen on Rose Bowl Day.
Still, if your dishwasher's broken, it can be a major hassle to wash all those dishes for your party. What to do?
One option is to try and repair it yourself, at least long enough to get all those party dishes washed. Although this can seem scary enough, there are a few simple things you can check without even picking up a screwdriver. The first thing to do is check the handle mechanism for the dishwasher. Most modern dishwashers have some kind of a fail-safe system whereby the dishwasher won't turn on unless the handle is properly locked. The easiest way to do this is to manually hold the latch closed or locked yourself, and then turn the dishwasher knob to on (or press the "on" button, depending on the style of your machine). If the machine still fails to turn on, go to step 2 below.
Another possible culprit could be the hot water heater. Because most dishwashers use only hot water, if the hot water heater is not functioning properly, it can effectively shut down the dishwasher completely (the water will not fill at all). Check the water temperature at the kitchen sink or someplace else with a hot water tap. Is it hot to the touch? If not, your problem is probably not the dishwasher, it's the water heater.
If both of the above check out alright, you will have to make a decision: to go further yourself, or bite the bullet and call for dishwasher repair. Pasadena repair services will surely be happy to help you—on January 2nd.
