Dishwasher Routine Maintenance

  • Remove any mineral deposits from the heating element with vinegar.
  • Clean the spray arm to prevent soap build-up.
  • Keep dishes clear of the spray arm.
  • Load the dishwasher according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Only run when the dishwasher is full.
  • Do not use more (or less) detergent than is recommended.
  • Load fragile dishes on the top rack.
  • To minimize soap film, periodically wash with a rinse solution.
  • Reduce suds in the dishwasher by using soap crystals instead of liquid detergent. Excessive suds may contribute to water dripping from the machine.
  • Inspect the floor near the dishwasher for water stains or other signs of leaking.
