I knew that I was going to have to find a company that does appliance repair in Sacramento sooner rather than later. My two daughters are spoiled, and they considered it the end of the world when the dishwasher broke down. It was still working a bit, but I told them to do dishes by hand until we could get it looked at. That is a rare thing in our house, so I figured it would not go over well. I was just worried that whatever was wrong with the dishwasher would get worse if the girls kept using it.
The problem was the water in the dishwasher. It would start to fill with water, but then it would just stop. It was not getting the dishes clean enough because of the lack of water, and I had no idea what was wrong with it. It was a fairly new dishwasher, but it was out of its warranty phase so I had to find someone else to come fix it. I went online and did a bit of research, then I called the company that had the best reviews by others who needed appliances fixed in their homes.
When I explained what was happening, the technician told me that it could be anything from a faulty timer to an overflow float switch that just was not working. They were able to send someone out the following day, and it turned out to be a valve that was not working properly. The repairman had the valve with him that we needed, and the dishwasher was back to its normal self in less than an hour. The price for the service call was extremely reasonable, and the girls are tickled pink that they no longer have to wash dishes by hand. It was a horrible few days for them, and I am just glad they survived it!
