How to maintain your dishwasher
Dishwashers: the ultimate guide to making it last longer.
Anyone who owns one knows the importance that the dishwasher has in our kitchens. Ideal especially in large families, where there are many dishes to wash, it is a convenient and simple tool that will save you a lot of time and at the same time save a lot of water. Let's see together how to take better care of it.
Rinse the dishes
It will seem obvious to reiterate this concept, but rinsing dishes thoroughly before washing is essential. Too large dirt residues not only hinder washing but could obstruct the drain pipes, limiting their duration.
Distribute the load evenly
Arranging dishes correctly and evenly inside the washing machine is essential. First, to make the arms move freely. We recommend moving the arms manually to check that they have freedom of movement before washing.
All dishwashers, especially the most modern ones, have accommodation dedicated to all types of dishes. Then place the plates in the plate compartment, the cutlery in the cutlery basket and the pots at the bottom.
Clean the seals
Dishwasher seals are the most frequent place where food and dirty water remains. Bring a rag soaked simply with water, vinegar and baking soda and gently clean the seals. This should be done at least once every two weeks.
Use the salt
Dishwasher salt is essential to prevent unwanted limescale from forming, which can compromise the life span of the appliance. The most modern washing machines have a salt level indicator, to help you regulate your use and add it whenever necessary. Remember to always use specific salt for dishwashers.
Cleaning the filters
Finally, don't forget to regularly clean the filter! This operation should be performed at least once every two months, you will benefit from it in future maintenance! The stubborn dirt lurks in the filter, to clean it then remove it and clean it gently with a brush soaked in water and vinegar and rinse it with plenty of water.
