Many dishwasher owners feel the need to pre-rinse their load to ensure effective cleaning. However, this simply isn’t true. Your machine and the products you use work together to break down the dirt on your dishes. If you are putting clean dishes in for a cycle, there is nothing for the cleaners to latch onto. By pre-rinsing, you are creating extra work for yourself and not using your machine to its full potential. If you are using your dishwasher correctly and your load is still not clean then get in touch with the Appliance Doctor in New York.
Some think that operating a dishwasher isn’t an eco-friendly option. They feel washing by hand is an environmentally friendly option. However, hand washing uses at least double the amount of water than the machine. It also uses less energy to heat a smaller volume of water.

Another myth will have you believe that dishwashers are filled with bacteria. Essentially bacteria can be present anywhere. However, your appliance is more hygienic than your kitchen sink. Dishcloths and sink drains provide the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Your appliance can reach higher temperatures that kill bacteria than your hands can handle when manually washing.
Some people think that if they select a shorter cycle that they are conserving energy. However, your machine has a range of cycles to suit different loads. Try and put similar loads on to boost efficiency. Running shorter than needed cycles result in needing to put dishes through an additional cycle or wash them by hand.
