Dishwasher Maintenance Tips
The dishwasher’s interior is normally self-cleaning. However, there are times when you will have to remove food particles or broken glass from the bottom of the tub. Also, clean the bottom edge of the dishwasher tub, which is sealed off by the gasket when the door is closed. Additionally, food and liquids drip on to this area when the dishwasher is loaded.
Clean the control panel with a soft damp cloth. In addition, do not use any abrasive powders or cleaning pads.
Dishwashers are designed to flush away all normal food soils that have been removed from the dishes. However, on occasion, certain foreign objects, such as fruit pits, bottle caps, etc., might collect in the openings of the pump. You should remove these items to avoid clogging the drain system. Also, on occasion, some of these foreign objects can get caught in the spray arm openings and will have to be cleaned out. Finally, check the racks carefully to see if there are any nicks or cuts in the vinyl. Repair these nicks and cuts with the help of a liquid vinyl-repair material, which is available through the manufacturer or at any appliance supply store.
Most importantly, read use and care manual for proper maintenance procedures for your brand of dishwasher.
