To reduce the need of repairs, use the following preventative measures. Proper maintenance and care is essential in keeping your dishwasher running efficiently. Improper care will cause your unit to overwork by using more electricity to keep you dishes clean than if properly maintained. By following these tips, you can prolong the life of your dishwasher and avoid many costly repairs.
Adjust Leveling
Make sure that the dishwasher’s feet are level to prevent an imbalance in the machine that may cause loud noises and added wear and tear on the unit a whole.
Regularly rub a cup of white vinegar through a complete cleaning cycle of the empty dishwasher. This will gently clean residues, odors and debris from the unit.
Check The Filter
If your dishwasher has a filter underneath the lower spray arm, remove all debris and rinse to protect the pump and motor seals. Replace if it has holes. A dirty filter may cause the dishwasher to not drain.
Check The Spray Arm
Clean the holes in the spray arm with a toothbrush and a mixture of white vinegar and warm water. Make sure you remove all debris and residues. Doing this regularly will remove the stress on the pumps and motor.
Do not overload your dishwasher. This will result in poor cleaning.
Drain Hoses
Check drain hoses are not impeded from draining. Remove kinks and other stoppages. Improper draining may cause the pump to overheat and burn out.
Proper Detergent
Do not add more than the recommended amount of detergent. Too much detergent may cause leaks
