How To Prolong The Life Of Your Dishwasher
The more you look after your domestic appliances, the longer they’ll last so it’s important that you know what to do on a daily or weekly basis to ensure they enjoy a long shelf life.
It’s also better for your back pocket if you do look after your appliances properly, as they won’t break down nearly as much as something that has a hard life and you won’t have to replace anything unnecessarily early either.
Generally speaking, appliance repair is a better option than replacing a freezer or dishwasher, as this can quickly become expensive and you’ll also be sending more items to landfill than you need to, so repair can help you save the planet as well.
Where your dishwasher is concerned, you can prolong the life of the appliance by scraping big bits of food and leftovers into the bin before loading the dishwasher with plates. Any hard bits of food should go straight in the bin, as these can tear the filter, cause tears in the drain hose or even damage the pipe.
You should also aim to clean the filter once a month so that it continues to do its job properly. You can tell if it needs doing because you may find the dishwasher isn’t cleaning dishes well enough or you can feel some kind of grit or residue on your plates.
Also do your best not to overload the washer, as this will make it harder for the appliance to wash cutlery and crockery properly. And always make sure that you only ever wash the dishes - you may be tempted to put other items in there, like car parts, but this could cause real damage to the appliance.
