It is easy to enjoy your kitchen when your appliances are working, but when they are not, you are either struggling with uneven cooking the appliances just not operating properly at all. Fortunately, most of these problems are preventable with routine maintenance and avoiding some mistakes. Making mistakes with your dishwasher is pretty easy and can have great consequences, which makes it both important and beneficial to learn about the mistakes to avoid to avoid needing professional appliance repair.
Block the Sprayer
A dishwasher will not function properly when the sprayer is blocked. In some cases, this can give you the false impression that your dishwasher is having serious problems already, but it may just be that you need to not block the sprayer when loading up your dishes.
Whether a dishwasher manufacturer claims that you can leave a certain amount of food on plates before putting it into the dishwasher to be washed, you are best off eliminating all but food residue. It is best to let your dishwasher succeed at cleaning the dishes in an efficient manner. Even when you spend time rinsing and getting major food particles off of dishes, you will still save tons of time with a dishwasher.
It is important not to think that a dishwasher cleans itself automatically with regular dishwasher cycles. Ideally, you should run it through an empty cycle with a cleaning solution to ensure longevity. Although it is not necessary to do this very often, you will find that doing it every month or so will keep your dishwasher running in top-notch condition while also helping to avoid any necessary repairs.
