A dish­wash­er is a house­hold item that not every­one can afford to pur­chase. Most often used in cater­ing estab­lish­ments. To con­nect, you need access to elec­tric­i­ty, water sup­ply and sew­er­age. But, like any house­hold appli­ance, the machine can break down. It can be repaired on its own, as it has an uncom­pli­cat­ed device. Nat­u­ral­ly, in order to car­ry out the repair process with your own hands, cer­tain knowl­edge in this area, tools and spare parts are required to replace the faulty parts of the machine. At the moment, replace­able ele­ments are avail­able in abun­dance in spe­cial­ty stores, as well as in repair cen­ters. In this arti­cle we will tell you what spare parts for dish­wash­ers are.

Main dishwasher parts

For each man­u­fac­tur­er and each mod­el, all parts are dif­fer­ent, and accord­ing­ly, var­i­ous spare parts are avail­able for sale, for most mod­els. How­ev­er, dish­wash­ers have a sim­i­lar struc­ture to each oth­er, as they have the same prin­ci­ple of oper­a­tion.

So, to begin with, we will describe the main spare parts for dish­wash­ers. How­ev­er, some parts are quite expen­sive, so they need spe­cial atten­tion.

elec­tric motor is the heart of the dish­wash­er. With­out it, absolute­ly all the work of the unit stops and in most cas­es its break­down leads to its replace­ment. In fact, its pur­pose is to pump soapy water through the exec­u­tive body of the machine. That is, an elec­tric motor equipped with a cir­cu­la­tion pump is the cen­tral body, with­out which the process of wash­ing dish­es will not take place. As you might guess, this spare part is the most expen­sive. What are the rea­sons for the fail­ure of the elec­tric motor:

  • sud­den volt­age drops in the mains;
  • water ingress into the pump hous­ing, after which the bear­ings become unus­able;
  • debris and dirt get on the engine elec­tron­ics.

From all this it turns out that it is nec­es­sary to reg­u­lar­ly mon­i­tor the con­di­tion of the pump fil­ters and clean the elec­tric motor with spe­cial means.

heat­ing ele­ment — a minor part of the dish­wash­er. Its task is to heat water to the required tem­per­a­ture. With­out hot water, the dish­es will not be washed prop­er­ly. Dif­fer­ent mod­els have dif­fer­ent heat­ing ele­ments, made in the form of heat­ing ele­ments or instan­ta­neous water heaters. Nat­u­ral­ly, if prop­er main­te­nance is not car­ried out, the ele­ment may fail over time.

con­trol mod­ule — also one of the most expen­sive parts of the car. All mod­ern dish­wash­ers are equipped with an elec­tron­ic con­trol sys­tem, while old­er mod­els have a mechan­i­cal con­trol mod­ule. It looks like a moth­er­board placed in a plas­tic or met­al case, on which indi­ca­tors, a dis­play and manip­u­la­tors are locat­ed. Most often, this con­trol ele­ment is made in the form of a sin­gle board and some­times it is very dif­fi­cult to repair, since it is not pos­si­ble to get inside the mod­ule case. There­fore, not many ser­vice cen­ters under­take the repair of this equip­ment; it will be eas­i­er and cheap­er to replace it.

Drain pump (pump) — designed to drain dirty, waste, liq­uid. It is also one of the key ele­ments of the dish­wash­er. As prac­tice has shown, the drain pump is the most frag­ile part of the dish­wash­ing machine, as it most often fails. Rea­sons for this:

  • mar­riage from the fac­to­ry — quite com­mon;
  • pow­er surges;
  • pump over­load due to vio­la­tion of the oper­at­ing instruc­tions;
  • pump fil­ters dirty.

This spare part is also repaired very rarely, it is a time-con­sum­ing and cost­ly process, so it is more prof­itable to sim­ply change the pump. You can find out about a mal­func­tion by the noise emit­ted or by the indi­ca­tions of errors on the dis­play of the con­trol mod­ule.

Sen­sors (ther­mo­stat and pres­sure switch) — designed for the cor­rect exe­cu­tion of a giv­en pro­gram in the machine, are respon­si­ble for the automa­tion of actions. Absolute­ly any mod­ern dish­wash­er is sim­ply crammed with all sorts of sen­sors that reg­u­late the tem­per­a­ture of water, its quan­ti­ty, mon­i­tor the process of wash­ing dish­es. The more expen­sive the dish­wash­er mod­el, the more func­tions, the more such sen­sors it has. Replac­ing them is not par­tic­u­lar­ly dif­fi­cult, as the machine will tell you which of the sen­sors is out of order.

Small parts and accessories

Hav­ing direct­ly described the main details, you can pro­ceed to the descrip­tion of addi­tion­al, some­times not sup­plied in the kit, spare parts.

Any dish­wash­er must be con­nect­ed to the water sup­ply and sew­er­age, using sev­er­al hoses and noz­zles. Plus, the unit itself includes a flu­id cir­cu­la­tion sys­tem, through tubu­lar con­nec­tions, the fail­ure of which con­tributes to the fail­ure of the above parts. If you notice a mal­func­tion, you should replace the failed spare part, espe­cial­ly since the range of these tubes on the mar­ket is large and the price does not bite, and the replace­ment process is not time-con­sum­ing.

Bas­kets and dish hold­ers can also become unus­able. The rea­son for this, most often, is time and care­less oper­a­tion of the equip­ment. In this case, the bas­kets must be select­ed exact­ly the same mod­el as the dish­wash­er itself. We advise you to have an addi­tion­al part, in case the cur­rent one fails.

Such acces­sories can be replaced inde­pen­dent­ly, with­out much effort.

We hope this arti­cle has giv­en you an approx­i­mate idea of ​​what spare parts for dish­wash­ers are. Oper­ate the equip­ment with care and be care­ful. Be care­ful when choos­ing spare parts for dish­wash­ers, so that you do not have to change the new­ly pur­chased thing lat­er.
