Compared to other types
of appliances, dishwashers can actually require more maintenance.
However, if you follow dishwasher
usage tips and cleaning, your dishwasher can run at its peak
level. Keep reading to learn more or contact American Appliance Repair at 800-640-9934 to
let the professionals handle it for you.
Use the Right Dishwashing Detergent
It is key to make sure you are using
the right detergent. However, there is not one detergent that works
best for everyone. You can first start with either powder, liquid,
tablets, or pods, depending on your preference. Other type of soaps
cause too many suds and can leave behind a residue. If you are not
sure what is best for your machine, check your manufacturer’s
instructions or ask when you call American Appliance Repair for maintenance help.
Use a Rinse Aid
When you need a deep clean, try a rinse
aid agent. These products help rinse out the dishwasher so that it
can perform its best. If you have spots that form on your dishes,
these are generally happening during the rinsing cycle when the
detergent is gone. Adding a rinse agent can help the water drip off
entirely during the dry cycle – which means an end to spots and
stains on your dishes.
Use a Dishwasher Cleaner Every Few Months
You can run a dishwasher cleaner
through your washer once every two to three months. This can get rid
of any mold, mildew, or bacterial growth, along with other types of
residues. If you have noticed that your dishwasher smells bad, or
that it often has clogs, then this could make a big impact.
begin to work at lower and lower capacities, it is natural for a
homeowner types even more. They assume that since the dishwasher is
not working well that it cannot handle the added residue on plates
and bowls. The truth is that while you do want to scrape off excess
food from your dishes, you do not want to rinse them. Believe it or
not, dishwasher detergent actually works its best when there is
something for it to interact with.
Make Sure You Are Loading the Dishwasher
We know – this is a topic that many
people cannot agree on. We are not going to debate which way the
forks and knives should sit, or which way the plates should face.
However, we will tell you a few uncontroversial facts: Put larger
dishes on the bottom rack with larger items on the top rack. Make
sure that you have enough space between your dishes so that the
entire surface can be cleaned.

dishwasher, contact American Appliance Repair at 800-640-9934 to get started.
