All household appliances have a life expectancy, and they all require some kind of maintenance and repairs from time to time. However, there are certain steps you can take to ensure that your appliances are properly cared for, in order to prolong their life and reduce wear and tear. When it comes to high-performance appliances like dishwashers, such maintenance can help you save big time on repair costs! Here are some useful dishwasher maintenance tips you can follow:
Even if you scrape your dishes clean and regularly wipe inside your dishwasher, it’s important to remember to check the filter regularly as well. This internal filter is designed to catch any debris that comes its way, and this is how it protects various parts of your dishwasher. Of course, when it gets really full, it can compromise the performance of your dishwasher and even result in damage.
You will notice that your dishwasher has a number of water jets. These small holes are an essential part of the cleaning process. If they get blocked, they will not be effective, and your dishes will not come out clean. Inspect each hole and clean using soapy water. The next time you use your dishwasher, you will be able to spot the fantastic difference in terms of performance and cleaner dishes!
Your dishwasher relies on the use of a fair amount of water in order to yield the desired results. Of course, this means that you need to make sure that the seals on the door are in perfect shape. Regular cleaning to remove any debris is a good start. While cleaning the seals, you should also take the time to inspect them for any wear or damage. If need be, have the seals replaced.
Hoses and cables can also experience wear and tear. Check all ingoing and outgoing connections as well as the hoses and cables. If you notice any holes, exposed wire, or poor connections, it’s important to have these problems resolved promptly before they result in more serious damage.
Just like any other household appliance, your dishwasher needs to be properly level. From time to time, due to several factors, your dishwasher may shift. This means that you need to check your dishwasher regularly to ensure that it remains level. There are feet under the dishwasher that you can adjust. If you are happy to do this yourself, it is usually a fairly simple task. However, if you are not confident in your abilities, you might prefer to call a professional.
Your dishwasher not only operates using plenty of water, but it also works at high temperatures which means that there are a number of parts that will experience wear and tear.
