What to Do When Your Dishwasher Is Not Cleaning Dishes

Question: Why are my dishes coming out dirty, perhaps even dirtier than they were when I put them in the dishwasher?

Answer: There are several factors in the performance of a dishwasher, and some of them can be easily addressed. Wash performance may improve if you do the following:

  • Use rinse aid such as Jet Dry
  • Run hot water at the sink prior to beginning a cycle
  • Use an appropriate amount of detergent for the soil level in the dishwasher. This is usually about 1-2 tablespoons of detergent
  • Use a high quality detergent such as Cascade powder
  • Use a water softener on your house water or specifically on the water supply to the dishwasher
  • If problems persist, call for service. There may be something more going on, but we are absolutely the right people to address your issue. Call us at 402-399-0202 to schedule service or go online to https://hometownheroappliancerepair.com/schedule-online/
