Mistakes To Avoid While Using Dishwasher

People are heavily dependent on machines to do their daily work. As much as electronic appliances help in completing tasks in no time, they can be difficult to handle. Dishwashers are no different. If not handled properly, they can easily be damaged and broken.

LES Specialistes de l’Electromenager is a company in Quebec that sells home appliances such as refrigerators, lave-vaisselle (dishwasher), dryer, oven, and more. They are known for selling the quality of locally manufactured electronic appliances. You can choose these appliances by applying filters that give you a choice of brands, size, and price range.

Common mistakes when loading the dishwasher

  • Pre-rinsing – Rinsing the dishes before placing them in the dishwasher is a waste of water and energy.
  • Placing glassware in the top rack – Glassware should not be placed over tine in the top rack because they end or chipping or breaking when dishes collide with each other.
  • Silverware placement – Loading the silverware in the same direction can cause them to nestle with each other resulting in difficult cleaning.
  • Placing the plates in the same direction – This can cause an uneven distribution of water and detergent.
  • Overfilling – Overfilling will not allow the dishwasher to properly access and clean all the utensils.

Tips to use dishwasher correctly

  • Simply scrape off the large chunks of food wastes in the trash and load the dish in the dishwasher. Let the dishwasher detergent do its job.
  • Place glassware in between the tines to prevent them from bumping into each other.

  • Place your silverware spoons and fork in an alternate direction.
  • Keep plates in the dishwasher facing the center because they can have equal access to soap and water? Alternately arranging plates between small and large and promote a better flow of water.
  • Place large platters at the back so that they do not block the soap dispenser. Placing large utensils in the utensil basket will block the water spray.
  • Keep your stainless steel and silverware separate otherwise; they produce a chemical reaction when collided.
  • Do not overcrowd your washer but also do not under load it wasting water and soap resources.
  • Use the right amount of detergent. If you use too much it can leave a film in the dishes.
  • Avoid placing wooden, copper, and iron objects in the dishwasher.
  • While unloading clean dishes, go from bottom to top.
  • Frequently run an empty dishwasher with some baking soda and vinegar.


Using the dishwasher properly not only generates effectively cleaned dishes. They also keep your utensils undamaged and also save your machine from breaking down.
