    Default A good dishwasher repairman - recommendations please

    Our dishwasher's pump has packed up and it won't drain. Can someone recommend a good dishwasher repairman, please?

    I'm becoming very tired of standing alongside SWMBO and drying the dishes each night,

    There is probably a removable stainless steel filter where the water leaves the inside washer part of the machine, try to find it, carefully pull it out if possible and clean it.

    Open the door and look for it inside, down on the floor of the washer. Reading the instruction book may be a good idea, under troubleshooting.

    Presuming you can hear the drain motor running but the water is not draining, if there are no motor sounds then your machine has problems you probably can't fix yourself.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    To recommend someone we need to know what town you live in.

    This is the what you do first before you start spending money on it. Exellent advice from Zqwerty. If you search for your machine repair on YouTube you will find similar advice in pictures.

    Google your brand name dishwasher repairs Auckland. All the major brands have repair people. Fisher and Paykel for example have a repair setup that you book on line and they send someone with the right gear and knowledge to your home to sort it out for you.

    You need to find the agent for your brand of dishwasher. Go to manufacturers website, search for local agent and it should list who does them in your area.
    Might not be economical though. Depending on age and parts cost, it could be new dishwasher time.

    Sorry, Ken, we don't do "washing dishes togetherness", we only do "sitting on the sofa watching TV togetherness".

    Thank you for your help, Zqwerty. We pulled everything out as you said, cleaned it and it seems to be working now.

    I agree with this. Sometimes it gets too expensive that a new one makes sense.
