An important part of your dishwasher’s efficiency is how well you take care of it. There are several ways to ensure it maintains it’s peak performance.
One of the main arguments about using dishwashers is whether or not to rinse off your dishes before putting them in. I will always suggest rinsing off your dishes; this makes it easier for your dishwasher to clean dishes, and prevents clogging in the bottom of the tub from food debris left over from your meal.
Running your dishwasher through a cycle without anything in it will clean out it’s pipes. I like to use a bit of vinegar in the wash tray to make sure everything is squeaky clean. It may not smell too good, but it will do the job and lengthen the life of your appliance.
One of my main problems is always overloading the dishwasher. I like to pack it all in to minimize the amount dishes I might have to do by hand. This, however, never works out in my favor. There’s almost always some sort of food residue left over on my plates and bowls. Making sure your dishes are loaded properly, and spaced out will ensure that your dishes will all get clean (and no residue).
