Dishwasher Tips
March 2017

Dishwashers save time and work in our very busy lives - nobody knows that better than someone who does not have a functioning dishwasher in their home - other than their two hands....

With any major appliance - it is important to do your homework and purchase a reliable, tested model from a reputable brand. Check with Consumer Reports, talk to friends and relatives and consult with your Appliance Service Company for the best recommendations.

Always load your dishwasher properly and do not overload it. Follow the manufacturer's instructions. Do not place items in the dishwasher that are not dishwasher safe. In most, but not all, cases the dish will be labeled one way or the other. Do not put any repaired dishes or chipped/cracked dishes in the dishwasher. Do not put aluminum pots or pans in the dishwasher. Only use dishwashing detergent/liquid - do not use any other type of cleaner or detergent.

Run the hot water in the sink near your dishwasher before starting it so that during the first cycle the water is near 120 degrees. If the water temperature is not hot enough the dishwashing soap will not dissolve.

Inspect your dishwasher after every use. Make sure that nothing has fallen form the racks and check to make sure there is no dirt or sediment left behind or building up around the bottom of the dishwasher or filters. If there is - clean it out.

Check the bottom spray arm once a month or so to make sure there is no built up "gunk" plugging up the holes on the spraying arm.

Check the coating on the racks of the dishwasher to confirm there are no cuts or chips, which can rust.

Thoroughly clean out your dishwasher a couple of times a year - we recommend using GLISTEN or ask your appliance service professional for recommendations before cleaning.
