Dishwashers Do’s and Don’t s
DO RINSE YOUR DISHES
Rinse your dishes before you put them into the dishwasher. Garbage in garbage out. I have recently seen where manufactures are claiming that if you leave the food on the dishes it will help get them clean. Not so much. If you rinse the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher, I guarantee that this will keep your dishwasher cleaner and if your dishwasher is cleaner it will smell better and it will last longer. If there is less food building up in the dishwasher your plates will be cleaner
Don’t buy cheap soap it will clogged up your dishwasher. It will cost you more in repair bills than you will ever save on cheap soap. Don’t skimp here I personally have seen good results with the newer packet type of Cascade and Finish
Today’s dishwashers need rinse agent as much as they need soap. Do to
the energy efficiency of the units they don’t get as hot as they once did. The heat was what dried the dishes and still does just not as good. They need help to keep from spotting up your dishes. If you buy the soap packets with rinse aid you do not need to put rinse aid into the door dispenser. That could cause new problems.
THINGS TO CHECK
Check your filter. There is a filter or a strainer in the bottom of your unit. It is there to catch food or broken glass, toothpicks, coins, screws, I’ve seen it all. Check and clean the filter on a monthly basis. Spray arms will catch anything that gets past the filter and will clogged up the little holes and keep the spray arms from spinning. If you see anything blocking the holes in the spray arm clean it out.
Cold water will not clean your dishes. Soap cannot dissolve in cold water. Run the water in the sink next to the unit until it is hot then turn on the dishwasher. There is a lot of cold water in the line going to your dishwasher.
CLEAN YOUR DISHWASHER
Run a cup of vinegar either by itself or with your dishes to clean your dishwasher. It will bring out the shine on your glassware. If you are getting a lime or a chalky type of buildup on the heater coil or spray arms use CLR to get it out before it turns your dishwasher into a dish cabinet.
