Tips to Extend the Life of Your Dishwasher (or Dishdrawer) and Decrease Servicing Costs
- Make your seals last longer by cleaning around the door seal surfaces to stop lime build up (use green scoring pads)
- Clean out the food catching filter: Take out the bottom tray, and in the middle you’ll see the filter. Remove that and rinse it
- If the wrong detergent is used and bubbles too much, pour one cup of milk into the dishwasher and resume the wash cycle. (The milk pops all the bubbles)
- If you are treating your home for mice/rats, don’t put the poison bait near the dishwasher (they will nibble through your water hoses to wash away the poison they have eaten, and survive!)
- If your mice/rat problem reoccurs, stop mice climbing into your dishwasher to eat through your water hoses by stuffing steelwool (normally for scrubbing pots) into the holes around the back
- To clean your dishwasher and reduce any smells, pour a cup of white vinegar (or a tablespoon of baking soda) into an empty dishwasher and set on a short cycle
