Dishwasher Working Too Hard? by Go Green Plumbing


Is Your Dishwasher Working Harder Than Necessary?

There are a few simple things that you can do to extend the life of your dishwasher and save you some dough. These tips are a great way to get started:

  • Always load your dishwasher according to the manufacturer’s directions – it gets your dishes the cleanest and allows you to get the most dishes in each load. Running a full load saves you money since each load costs the same to run, whether empty or full.
  • Scrape your dishes before loading – don’t rinse as that wastes water, but scraping food will keep the food disposal system and pump from working extra hard.
  • Clean the dishwasher – on a regular basis use a commercial dishwasher cleaner or an at home cleaning solution.
  • Let dishes air dry – it saves energy and will keep your home from heating up in the summer.
  • Use a rinse aid – you’ll get sparkling dishes and speed the drying time without having to use the heated drying option.
  • In the summer run the dishwasher at night – this keeps the dishwasher from heating up your home during the day.
