Dishwasher Repair Philadelphia - House Appliance Repairs
Scrape the dishes
One of the most important steps to ensure maximum Dishwasher Longevity, is properly scraping the food of the dishes before putting them on the dishwasher. Although most of the dishwashers come with a food chopper, they’re designed to break small and soft food particles. Also, the food particles have to go through a fine filter first, so scraping excess food is also important to prevent filters from clogging. If a piece of bone, seeds, or any solid food particle make its way to the dishwasher, it’s very likely that it will clog the pump, damage the food chopper or the pump impeller.
Periodically clean the pump, filters and spray arms
Over time, food and hard water can build up and partially clog the water ways, causing poor cleaning. Use a brush to scrub the filters, and run water through the spray arms while using a pokey tool to remove all the particles that might be stuck in there. Accessing these parts is fairly easy, refer to the User Manual for more information.
If the dishwasher is packed with dishes that can restrict the water flow causing poor cleaning. You also always want to make sure that silverware or dishes did not slip through the dishwasher rack, if something blocks the spray arm it will cause poor cleaning or even a leak.
Removing Buildup, Smells or Mold
Buildups will result with poor cleaning, also cause glasses to be sparkly or cloudy after wash. To remove buildups and smells you can use an acid like White Vinegar, Tang, Lemon juice or Lemon Powder. If the solution your using is liquid, like vinegar, pour a cup or two on a glass and place it in the top rack. You can also pour it in the bottom of the dishwasher (note: most dishwashers drain first when started, wait till its finished, when it starts filling pause it and pour the solution). If your using powder, you need to put it in the soap dispenser.
After that run the dishwasher through a quick cycle, it is also advised to pause the dishwasher mid-cycle for 20/30 mins so the solution your using can do its magic. Finally, running one last cycle with bleach will get rid of any mold or mildew and ensure that your dishes are sanitized and spotless. If your dishwasher is Stainless Steel, then do not use bleach, use a product like Tang instead. Also remember to not mix bleach with any acid. You should also spray bleach or tang and wipe the corners (gasket area, bottom of dishwasher) or even the outside to remove or prevent smell and mold buildup.
