I had to look online for major appliance repair in Sacramento recently due to my adorable toddler son. He’s a great, sunny kid to have around, but he’s also a major troublemaker who has caused a lot of damage around the house. The most recent incident involved him playing in the sandbox my husband built for him in the backyard. Doesn’t sound like trouble, right? Usually it isn’t, but he got it into his head to bring in a bucket of sand which he promptly poured into the detergent tray in the dishwasher! Of course someone turned it on.
I didn’t think I’d ever hear that kind of noise coming from the dishwasher. When I opened the machine I quickly noticed most of the plates and glasses were broken and the rest of the stuff was scraped up really bad. I took everything out and that’s when I noticed piles of sand in the bottom of the unit. I put two and two together and figured out what happened. I cleaned up the machine and tried to run it again and it made a clunking sound and promptly stopped running. Obviously I needed someone to take a look at it.
I called a firm I found online and explained the situation. They sent someone over right away and we had a lot of laughs about what happened. The tech said he’d never heard of this type of thing happening, but he’d take a look and see if he could clean it up and get it running. He had to replace more than a few parts, and clean sand out of some of the parts inside, but sure enough he got it running. I couldn’t believe it! I thought for sure we’d have to replace it, but it’s running like a dream. Great company!
