Once every few months, take only 15 minutes to spotless it. Your dishwasher will appreciate you in return and will serve you in your kitchen for years and you will be too late to repair the dishwasher.

Read the manual of the dishwasher before doing anything. This booklet provides complete instructions for cleaning as well as how to maintain it. If you do not know where you left the booklet or lost it, with a simple Google search, you will find out how to take care of the machine according to the construction and model of the dishwasher.

Clean the filters periodically

Many models of dishwashers have a filter near or under the lower spray arm that you regularly must make sure it is cleaned. If you have these types of filters, check your dishwasher manual to know how to replace or clean it. If you see holes in it, buy a new one and replace the damaged to properly protect the pump and motor from particles in the dishwasher.

Clean the spray arm

The sprayer arms work by rotating to ensure that water reaches all surfaces of the container in both the top and bottom rows of the dishwasher. Water is drained through small holes at regular intervals in the arms. Over time, small holes in the arm (s) of your dishwasher spray, which is an important part of this machine, may become clogged with pieces of food, toothpicks, oil, and so on.

Periodically clean the armholes to ensure that the dishes are clean. Soak the arm in a solution of vinegar and water and use a regular cleaning tube to clean the holes.

Check the front door washer

If you have a water leak on the floor or around the dishwasher, it could be due to a damaged or worn gasket around the dishwasher door. In most cases, the washer can be easily replaced. Check the door washer every once in a while for any cracks or wear.

Clean the drain pipe

Unplug the dishwasher. If it is an internal model, its plug is probably under the sink. You may even want to turn off the circuit breaker just to be sure. Check the device manually and follow the instructions. Remove any food or waste from the drain at the bottom of the appliance.

Use dishwashing detergent

Only use the specific detergents for the device when you are using the dishwasher.

Detergents are available in three types: tablets, powders, and gels. Among them, the tablet is more effective. But because of the high price, many people prefer to use powder or gel. Between the two, the powder is better. Because gels have chlorine bleach that does not work in hard water.

Never use ordinary soaps and detergents for the dishwasher, as they produce a lot of bubbles and foam that cause the car to leak.

Inspect shelves

Check the shelves and check for any discoloration or rust. Shelves come in several colors, so make time for one color that matches your shelves. If the shelves are rusty, look for replacement shelves. Replace shelves and use touch paint is used.

– Scaling the dishwasher

The scaling of the dishwasher is done in several stages and by materials such as special scaling agents, salt tablets, or dishwasher gel. Fortunately, you can easily get all these materials from big and reputable stores. Therefore, you will not have any worries after buying the dishwasher and starting to use it. Now, if you want to scale the dishwasher using pills or scaling materials, you have to do it in three steps:

• Turn on the device

• Pay attention to the symptoms of the device

• Putting or pouring scaling agent in the device (through a special valve)

Remember that the use of salt tablets or dishwasher scaling agents will greatly help to improve the performance of these appliances.

We hope that by studying these cases and using them, you will be able to easily use your dishwasher at home for many years and thus leave the task of washing dishes and glasses to this machine easily. But keep in mind that if after all these cares, your device has a problem, be sure to get help from professional and expert repairmen to repair it.
