Easy Tips for Keeping Your Dishwasher in Top Shape

It is important to keep your dishwasher in top shape so that it can properly clean your dishes. Below are some easy tips to help you keep your dishwasher in top shape:

Clean the filter regularly

1. Make sure to regularly clean the dishwasher filters. Over time, the filters can become clogged with food and grease, which can prevent the dishwasher from cleaning dishes properly.

2. Inspect the dishwasher spray arm for any clogs or buildup. If you notice any, clean them off with a toothbrush or other small brush.

Use Vinegar

3. Run a cup of white vinegar through the dishwasher once a month to help remove any built-up residue.

Clean The Dishes.

4. Always scrape off any large food particles from dishes before loading them into the dishwasher. This will help prevent clogs and ensure that the dishwasher can properly clean the dishes.

Keep The Door Open

5. Keep the dishwasher door slightly open when not in use to allow air to circulate and prevent mold and mildew from growing.
