However, if you have missed getting it serviced, the common issue that you can face is leakage. You can hire a reliable company to get commercial dishwasher repairs in Bristol.

The most common reason for repair is a leak and there are many sources of it. Some of them are given below.

Boiler and rinse tanks – the leak in the boiler tank can occur due to rusting as a result of limescale build-up. It blocks the inlets and damages all the parts of the dishwasher. The minerals that are present in the water, get deposits on the boiler and these depositions are high in magnesium and calcium and these are also highly corrosive which leads to deterioration of the dishwasher components.

O rings – They are the seal and prevent the air and water from passing. They are highly elastic. But with time, both the silicone-based and the rubber-based O rings deteriorate and lose their elasticity. Therefore, it comes in contact with the corrosive fluid and it breaks the O rings and all this leads to leakage from it.

The water inlet valve – It shuts off and opens the water flow to the dishwasher. The malfunctioning water inlet valve leads to water pooling at the bottom and causes the machine to overflow.
