How To Load Your Dishwasher For Best Results

Posted by The Appliance Parts Experts on 3/17/2016 to Appliance Maintenance

If you’ve ever opened up your dishwasher after a wash cycle to find dishes with food still stuck to them, you should take a look at the way you loaded them. When a dishwasher is overcrowded and items aren’t placed properly, dirty dishes are inevitable. To prevent you from finding yourself in this inconvenient situation, we’ve made a list of helpful tips for loading:

1. Load the dirty side of dishes away from the wall; instead place them facing inwards towards the spray arms.

2. Alternate silverware from being placed head first and feet first. A thorough clean becomes difficult to achieve when silverware is all going in the same direction.

3. Always load glasses and cups face down so they do not collect Reserve the upper dishrack for these and other delicate items to protect them from exposure to the strong sprayer underneath the lower dishrack.

4. Large bowls and plates should be loaded in the back or on the sides so that they can’t interfere with the disperse of detergent from the door dispenser.

                To be efficient in your dish washing cycles, wait until your unit is full before running cycles and kick your bad loading habits now! If you are in need of a replacement part or an accessory for your dishwasher, you can find everything you need on our website here:
