How important is a dishwasher for your Toowoomba home?

A dishwasher is one of the most reliable appliances inside your kitchen. It cleans and rinses dirty dishes without giving you any hassle. This makes your lives convenient and easier.

This is most helpful to many families, especially to those who find washing dishes to be very time-consuming. Thus, even if dishes can still be washed manually, many still prefer to buy dishwashers to handle their dishes.

How do you keep your dishwasher in Toowoomba working efficiently all year round? Here are some handy maintenance tips. Read on.


Make sure that the door opens easily.

To clean the dishwasher, use a damp cloth to wipe around the edges of its door and gasket. Use a soft brush or an old toothbrush to help you clean the tight spaces. Moreover, do not forget to look under the bottom of the door to check for debris and wipe it clean as needed.

Monitor the condition of the plastic coating on the tines of the dish racks.

Repair cut or chipped plastic coating on racks to prevent rust. Do this by running one cycle of an empty dishwasher with a mild, food acid of your choice. However, be extra careful so as not to use bleach or detergents that may contain bleach if your dishwasher has a stainless steel interior. Otherwise, this will damage your dishwasher.


Check the wash and rinse arms and nozzles

To make sure that waters can run freely, always check the holes of your dishwasher's spinning arms to see if it is unclogged. If clogged, use a needle-nose pliers, a toothpick or a thin stiff wire to clear the debris out of the holes. Lastly, scrub any mineral deposits of the spray arm with hot, distilled vinegar.


Make sure that the scrap tray is in place and clean.

Check the scrap tray and remove any bits of food or shards of broken glass/dishes.


Check that the dishwasher starts if door is closed.

Your dishwasher should automatically start if the door is closed. If it doesn't then there is a problem. Send us a message for us to check on this.
