Dishwasher Tips To Save Money


Attempting to repair a Dishwasher without proper training is dangerous. Dishwashers should only be repaired by skilled professionals. Repairs performed by unqualified people could cause serious injury or even death.

To reduce the need of repairs, Proper maintenance and care is essential in keeping your dishwasher running efficiently. Improper care will cause your unit to overwork by using more electricity and water to get your dishes clean. By following these tips, you can prolong the life of your dishwasher and avoid many costly repairs.

Once per month run a cup of white vinegar or citric acid through a complete cleaning cycle of the empty dishwasher. This will gently clean residues, odors and debris from the unit.

Clean the doors and door gaskets with detergent solution.  Do not use abrasives.

If your dishwasher has a filter underneath the lower spray arm, remove all debris to protect the pump and motor. Replace if it has holes. A dirty filter may cause the dishwasher to not drain.

Clean the holes in the spray arm with a toothbrush and a mixture of white vinegar and warm water. Doing this regularly will prolong the life of the pumps and motor and promote clean dishes.

Do not overload your dishwasher. This will result in poor cleaning.

Check drain hoses are not impeded from draining. Remove kinks and other stoppages.

Do not add more than the recommended amount of detergent. Too much detergent may cause leaks. Use soap made for automatic dishwashers only.
