Viking Dishwasher Rust or Corrosion
Discovering rust or corrosion in your Viking dishwasher can be a cause for concern, potentially impacting its performance and aesthetics. One common cause is prolonged exposure to moisture, which can lead to rust formation on metal components within the dishwasher. Damaged dish racks with compromised coatings, hard water deposits, and scratched interior surfaces can also contribute to this issue.
To address rust or corrosion concerns on your own, consider the following DIY solutions. Regularly wiping down the interior of the dishwasher, paying attention to areas prone to moisture buildup, can help prevent rust caused by excessive dampness. Additionally, running an empty dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar can aid in removing hard water deposits. In cases where dish racks show signs of damage, using a dishwasher rack repair kit can help restore the protective coating and prevent further exposure to moisture.
For more localized rust spots or scratches, create a paste with baking soda and water, and gently scrub the affected areas using a soft cloth or sponge. If the rust issue persists despite these efforts, applying a rust converter according to the product’s instructions can be effective in converting rust into a stable, paintable surface.
While these DIY solutions can often address minor rust or corrosion issues, it’s essential to monitor the situation. If the problem persists or if you notice significant damage to crucial components, seeking professional assistance is advisable.Schedule Appointment
