Taking Care of Your Dishwasher

Once considered a luxury appliance, dishwashers have now become a staple of modern kitchens around the country. Having a reliable dishwasher will ensure that cleaning up after meals is seamless and simple. Unfortunately, when your dishwasher stops doing its job correctly, it can make daily chores that much more inconvenient and time consuming. Thankfully, proper maintenance can help your dishwasher stay in quality condition longer, reducing the need for repairs and premature replacement. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we proudly provide dishwasher repair, replacement, installation and maintenance services. We know how important routine care can be for improving the longevity of appliances. Here are some tips and helpful hints to help keep your dishwasher in tip top shape long term.

Dishwasher Cleaning and Maintenance Tips

One of the best ways to avoid dishwasher related problems is to incorporate cleaning and maintenance into your schedule. Deep clean your dishwasher at least twice a year. Unplug the appliance to ensure safe handling, and remove the racks and filter to thoroughly remove any accumulated debris, mold or rust. Once a week, run a dish free cycle on the lowest setting with 2 cups of vinegar and 1 cup of baking soda. Be sure to stop the cycle halfway through, and let it sit for 15 minutes before continuing. This should keep your dishwasher spic and span and free of clogs. In addition, running the hot water for a few minutes before starting your dishwasher can assist in effectively cleaning your dishes. And, turning on your disposal will guarantee that the line is clear of any food debris.

Take Care of Repairs as Soon as Possible

If you do notice a problem with your dishwasher, dont hesitate to call a professional. Most issues are easy to fix, but ignored problems can turn into major hassles if their left to worsen. Stay on top of clogs, backups and plumbing related trouble, and get the help you need right away.

How to Know When Its Time for a Dishwasher Replacement

While clogs and part replacements can be fixed with a basic plumbing service, there are certain issues that may require a new dishwasher installation. If your dishwasher is over ten years old, the chances of experiencing these extreme problems are increased. At some point, the cost and inconvenience of frequent repairs may outweigh the price tag of a brand new, energy efficient model. Generally, if youre dealing with a dishwasher that is constantly rumbling, that has become rusted or is cracked, its probably time to invest in a new unit.
