  • The full clean routine

    2. Check & empty the filter

      If your dishwasher’s filter is doing its job and catching wayward food particles, it will need to be emptied to help draining and stop food particles circulating.

    3. Check & unclog the drain

      Behind the dishwasher filter is the drain that can accumulate debris, grease and grime over time, or even become damaged. Be careful cleaning the drain and always disconnect your machine before attempting.

    4. Check the spray arms

      Check to ensure your spray arms are rotating freely and aren’t clogged with debris to ensure they are operating at full power.

    5. Address hard water stains

      Hard water stains and limescale build up can be removed with Finish Dishwasher Cleaner, but its best to avoid build up in the first place.

    6. Check for leaks

      Look around your dishwasher for evidence of leaks or pooling water. Some typical culprits of dishwasher leaking are a broken inlet valve, defective pumps or loose seals. For any of these, consult a technician.

    It’s clean, but I still have a problem

    Even with your dishwasher as clean as a whistle, you can still encounter other problems that get in the way of the ultimate clean. Problems can arise from loading your dishwasher incorrectly, not using the right settings and cycles or other common issues found in our troubleshooting guide.

    For any technical issues, we recommend you consult a qualified technician.
