The dishes come out not clean or with streaks

Looks like your dishwasher decided to give your plates an abstract art makeover instead of a proper clean! The culprit is often hard water, which leaves those unsightly streaks and spots.

Try using a rinse aid to combat mineral deposits and ensure a sparkling finish. Regularly cleaning the filter and spray arms can also improve your dishwasher’s performance, so your dishes come out spotless every time.

Dishwasher Care Tips

Longer Dishwasher Life

Regularly monitoring and maintaining your dishwasher prolongs its lifespan, ensuring it serves you well for years to come.

Lesser Maintenance Costs

Addressing issues promptly can result in cheaper repair costs compared to letting problems worsen, which often leads to more expensive dishwasher servicing.

Good Overall Health

Reusing improperly washed dishes can lead to illnesses such as food poisoning; regular dishwasher maintenance helps prevent this by ensuring your dishes are properly cleaned and sanitized.

Inspecting the Cause of Dirty Dishes

The next time your dishes come out of the dishwasher dirty, don’t panic. Here are some ways to inspect the cause and hopefully solve the problem yourself.

Overpacking the Dishwasher

Avoid overloading your dishwasher, especially after parties or large gatherings. Overpacking prevents proper water circulation, leading to poorly cleaned dishes and necessitating a second wash.

Not Enough Soap

Ensure you’re using the correct amount of soap for the load size. Check that the soap dispenser is functioning correctly, cleaning any clogged parts and degreasing as necessary. Replace broken dispenser springs or doors to ensure the soap is properly distributed during the wash cycle.
