Dishwasher Maintenance Tips
Dishwashers last longer and run more efficiently when they are properly maintained.
Here are a few maintenance tips that will ensure the smooth operation of your dishwashing machine:
1. Clean the interior, exterior, and edges: The best way to maintain your dishwasher is to clean the inner and outer walls of your dishwasher, along with the edges. Simply use a brush with soft bristles and a household cleaner to clean them. As food particles sometimes accumulate in the upper and bottom racks, make sure to clean them properly. Moreover, over time the food debris and residue get accumulated on the edges and outer side of the appliance. These places often get neglected and do not get cleaned, unlike the interior. To prevent bad odour and stains, remember to clean these areas as well.
2. Reduce build-ups: Accumulation of residue inside the dishwasher is unavoidable, especially if you do not scrape off the remaining food in your dishes before loading them into the appliance. To ensure the proper functioning of the kitchen appliance, use efficient cleaning solutions like white vinegar or lemon juice to eliminate such accumulation in the areas including the drain.
3. Load your dishes properly: This may not seem as significant, but loading the dishwasher correctly will make a huge difference when it comes to your appliance’s efficiency. Go through the instructions manual to place the items correctly for cleaning. There are separate options for heavy and delicate or lighter items. Plates, glasses and cutlery — they all have designated place. Strategically place the utensils to ensure optimum performance of the appliance. Sort the dishes properly and make sure not to overload the dishwasher.
4. Don’t forget the spinning arms: The spray or spinning arms help to clean the utensils by spraying hot water to clean the dishes thoroughly. They have tiny holes in them, which can get clogged over time and need to be cleaned properly. By using an old toothbrush the dirt or food residue that is trapped inside can be removed. Moreover, check if the spinning arms are properly functioning and if not, seek professional help.
