Rinse Your Dishes Because Most Dishwashers Do Not Have Cutting Blades

Most people have their own method for washing dishes. Some people provide a quick rinse, while others spray their dishes down thoroughly before putting them into the dishwasher. There are also people who do nothing and simply place dishes into the appliances without giving them a simple once-over. Keep reading for the most recommended method for loading a dishwasher. We will also explain how it will ultimately help you avoid the need for extra dishwasher repairs.

There has been a lot of efforts made to prove there is no need to wash or even rinse dishes before putting them into a dishwasher. The fact is that the pre-washing portion will provide the same service as rinsing dishes in the sink. Modern dishwashers can even recognize the presence of some residue and resort to a stronger wash cycle. But that does not mean they are a garbage disposal.

It does not take an experienced technician to recognize when dishwashers are not equipped with any cutting blades that will break down food. That is why it is a good idea to scrape off all remnants of food before putting dishes in the dishwasher. A failure to do so could slow down the entire process. The dishwasher could become clogged and be forced to work harder in an attempt to clean your dishes.

It is also no secret that too much food left on a plate is not guaranteed to come off in the dishwasher. Plenty of people have pulled out dishes that are not fully cleaned following a wash. But this is not the only issue that could be caused by leaving food on your plates.

Most dishwashers contain a trap for food particles that are too large to pass through their drains. This is good for preventing a dishwasher clog, but means that your dishwasher may contain ancient, waterlogged food after a while. Gross.

At the bottom of every dishwasher, there is a trap. Since there are no cutting blades in a dishwasher, this is where all those remnants of food wind up. The trap should be cleaned every so often. But even if you clean it regularly, that is not an excuse to drop chunks of food in with your dirty dishes.


And there is also another filter which serves the function of separating the small particles of food that are not caught in the trap. This also needs to be cleaned out every so often. Needless to say, too much food in your dishwasher is going to clog this filter as well.
