2 Most Common Dishwasher Problems | Fixes to Try Before Calling Service

These are the top problems that come up with dishwashers at home. Here are a couple of practices to ensure your dishwasher is running properly, and lasts it's expected life or longer.

Why are my dishes not coming clean?

Dishes should not be pre-rinsed before putting them in the dishwasher. The detergent will activate when making contact with the food on the dishes. If you rinse them before you put them in, the detergent won’t have anything to activate off of. Before putting the dishes in the dishwasher simply scrape off the heavy food and let the unit do its job.

Why are the dishes not drying?

Rinse Aide products and Jet Dry is necessary in the drying process and today’s units rely on this. Make sure you are also using the right dry settings for the types of dish ware you are washing.

Here is more information on specific dry settings on this blog:
