Fed up with your dishwasher? Read this

by Jake Smith on Jan 29, 2014

Is your dishwasher constantly breaking down? Are you constantly looking for troubleshooting solutions for your dishwasher? If so, I'd recommend you try Bosch Dishwashers. For quite a while, I couldn’t stand mine until I was introduced to Bosch Dishwashers. Prior to this, my dishwasher used to give me nightmares. My visits to the technician were so frequent to an extent that he felt my agony and introduce me to Bosch Dishwashers. Ever since, it's been nothing but all smiles. I've never looked back neither have I regretted my choice. I can go on and on raving about my current so it's best if I leave it there.

Fed up

Before you even secure a dishwasher you need to understand how it works so that you can get the best out of it. Here is some basic information about how a dishwasher operates.

Basic information about dishwashers

A dishwasher should comprise of the following main parts. Whenever these parts are not in synch, chances are that your dishwasher will not function properly.

  • Control mechanism – which is situated behind the control panel found inside the door. Most units are equipped with an electro-mechanical system.
  • Intake valve – these valves supply the dish washer with home water, which facilitates the cleaning process. Whenever the intake valves open, pressure drives the water into the washing unit.
  • Pump – dishwashers are equipped with fully functioning electric motors which are used to power the pumps.

    The pumps are responsible for forcing water into the spray arms and the drain hoses. There are two types of pumps; reversible pumps and direct drive pumps.

You can either choose to install your dishwasher on either a portable or a permanent configuration.

Understanding how your dishwasher works

In order to operate your dishwasher, you need to know how exactly it works so as to avoid some unprecedented problems. You might be blaming your dishwasher only to realize that you are the problem.

A dishwasher is a robot that basically helps you with cleaning dirty dishes. When operating it, you need to load it with the dishes, add your most ideal detergent, set the appropriate washing cycle and turn it on. The rest is completed by the dishwasher. They are made in such a way that they have the ability to monitor themselves throughout the process. This is the same technology that is used in Bosch Dishwashers.

style of Dishwasher

When using your dishwasher, you need to exercise caution even though the machine does most of the working. To ensure that it is operating safely,efficiently and effectively, you need abide by the following:

A few guidelines for using your dishwasher

  • Cease from using regular soap to do the dishes using your dishwasher. It helps prevent the suds from overflowing the dishwasher.
  • Take caution not to overload the dishwasher as you'll need to save some space for the water jets to spray your dishes.
  • Always face the dirty parts of the dishes towards the center. This will help with cleaning as the spray jets are known to come from here.
  • Avoid mixing steel items with silver items. It helps prevent your utensils from corrosion.
  • Separate identical items from one another to avoid nesting together.
  • Homes with hard water are advised to slightly use more detergent.
