This year is the 130th birthday of Josephine Cochran’s genius invention, the dishwasher.
What started as a practical hand operated machine has now become a household essential that can be found in almost every family home.
Josephine Cochran herself went on to build the kitchen empire that is KitchenAid, selling those luxury kitchen items such as coffee machines and blenders that are dotted around your cooking area or, more often than not, left sitting in the cupboard.
The dishwasher, however, has remained a constant – tucked away under the counter ready to take in that pile of dishes you do not want to deal with.
The dishwasher is a household appliance that most of us take for granted, but once taken away, is considerably missed. Busy schedules and daily life leave little room for time-consuming washing up and before long the kitchen becomes cluttered with pots and pans from last night’s supper. That’s why we’re here, to make sure your counter stays clear and your hands stay dry.
MK Dart is your trusted repair company in Milton Keynes and our professional team are on hand to save you from the washing up whenever you need us. Your MK Dart repairman will be fully qualified to fix any dishwasher, no matter what brand or type, so you can be certain that your dishwasher is in good hands.
If you are noticing any of the following and you live in the Milton Keynes area, give MK Dart a call and we will be happy to help;
- Water leaking from your dishwasher
- Dishes not cleaning or drying properly
- Water not draining from the machine
We know how precious your evenings are and we understand how important a dishwasher is to your hectic daily schedule, so make sure you call MK Dart as soon as you notice any issues we will have it fixed for you in no time!
We have all been there; you get home, dinner time is fast approaching and your favourite TV show is starting, a clothes wash is the last thing on your mind but it really is time for that weekly spin, so you quickly gather together clothes from the wash-basket, floor and unpacked bags, throw the contents in the washing Machine, pop in the detergent and it’s a 2 second job – done. Jean pockets go unchecked, no one knows what could be rolled up in the duvet bundle and the gym bag hasn’t been emptied for weeks – only time will tell what strange items are lurking in the midst of the pile.
Then, between chopping onions and grabbing the remote, the clothes are thrown in to the trusted tumble dryer and left to do their thing whilst you get on with the evening routine.
Our reliable team have attended numerous jobs to faulty tumble dryers due to foreign objects stuck in the machine; keyrings, batteries and even books have been known to take a whirl. Safe to say, it’s a sad moment when the clothes are removed and there is a wilted £20 note stuck between the rivets.
A recent turnout proved even more intriguing, and somewhat unexpected… our very own Pikachu! Who knew the Pokémon craze would involve our very own humble tumble dryer. Note to gamers…. Do not bypass familiar household appliances on your Pokémon quest!
