USE PRODUCTS THAT MATCH THE HARDNESS OF YOUR WATER
It is really important to know the hardness of your water in your place of residence to determine what kind of appliance would be more suitable for utilization. You don't know the hardness of the water in your neighborhood? Get our test strips to check this and make sure you use a sufficient amount of detergent and an appropriate rinse aid.
ADJUST THE WATER TEMPERATURE
Your hot water tank must be adjusted to the correct intensity for your appliance to be fully effective. Consult your user guide for the number of degrees recommended for your dishwasher (typically between 120 ° F and 140 ° F).
RINSE YOUR DISHES BEFORE PUTTING THEM IN THE APPLIANCE
Place your dishes under a stream of water to dislodge the food before placing them in the dishwasher. This will limit the spread of mold and foul odors. You can also activate the "rinse" mode of your appliance between two cycles if it takes a long time to fill it.
PERFORM A VACUUM CLEANING CYCLE
Even if the function of your device is to wash, it also needs a little maintenance. Use a specialized detergent or pour two cups of vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher, then start a vacuum cycle to dissolve the dirt that accumulates on the various parts of the appliance.
HAND WASH AREAS LIKELY TO ACCUMULATE RESIDUE
Pass a sponge soaked in soapy water over the interior walls of the appliance to remove the accumulated grease. If possible, disassemble the wash arms and rinse them with a stream of water to remove residue. Use a toothpick to unclog the small holes in it. Use a damp cloth to clean the door gasket.
CLEAN YOUR MACHINE'S FILTER FREQUENTLY
Remove the filter located at the bottom of your dishwasher and rinse it under water to remove dirt. If these do not take off, gently rub the part with a soft brush. Also remember to wash the grid in which the filter fits.
