Help! My Dishwasher is Overflowing

No one wants a mess in their kitchen. Dishwasher overflows can be a small nuisance or a big problem. It’s important to address any mess in your kitchen right away to ensure everyone’s safety and the safety of your appliances. 

Stop further overflow

Make sure to cancel the cycle right away, as water and power don’t mix. Also, that should stop the process of sudding and flooding and allow the dishwasher to drain. Next, douse the suds with salt. A chemical reaction between the salt and the detergent should help eliminate suds, so you can clean up. 

Stop pre-washing dishes

Appliance King experts do not recommend pre-washing your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, because liquid dish detergent may generate enough suds to cause overflow from your dishwasher. However, if it is necessary to wash a particularly dirty dish by hand before putting it into the dishwasher, rinse it thoroughly, so there is no residue of liquid soap to cause excess suds and flooding.
