Serving Up Some Excellent Dishwasher Advicedishwasher repair

We also like sharing tips for maintaining a well running dishwasher. Here are a few from our friends at Maytag:

  • Clean the interior of the dishwasher, with a paste of powdered dishwasher detergent and water or use liquid dishwasher detergent on a damp sponge to clean the cooled-down interior.
  • To help avoid odor or odor-causing residue in your dishwasher, use Affresh® dishwasher and disposer cleaner (recommended) once a month as part of routine maintenance. Affresh® dishwasher and disposer cleaner is effective in all dishwasher brands.
  • For our snowbirds, or part-time residents, if you will not be using the dishwasher during the summer months, turn off the water and power supply to the dishwasher.
  • Always use a rinse aid.
  • Always use a high-quality, fresh detergent. Powder preferred.
