One of the most common reasons your dishwasher isn’t draining properly is because the drain line is clogged. The line, also called a drain hose, removes water from the dishwasher tub at the end of a cycle. If the drain line is clogged, water may not be able to flow properly. Contact our certified plumbers for troubleshooting and repairs.
A prompt response is important if you’re dealing with a burst pipe as a result of freezing. Expert plumbers should handle broken pipe repairs, but there are several things you can do on your own to keep the pipes from freezing in the first place:
Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.
Let the cold water drip from faucets served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe—even at a trickle—helps prevent ice from forming and freezing.
Minimize changes to the thermostat and keep your home at least 50 degrees, even when you’re not home.

Break down food scraps right away with cold water and leave the disposal on for about 30 seconds to ensure everything is broken down. You should also never put coffee grounds, eggshells, potato peels and other large pieces of food into the disposal, because they may restrict drainage and cause damage and bad smells.
