Loading a Dishwasher

Page 1 of 2

Loading a dishwasher can prove to be more difficult you think.

Dish Preparation....

dish preparation

Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. Burned on food should be loosened before loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups. Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice and tomato products may cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to rinse off these food soils. Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening. If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, be sure disposer is completely empty before starting the dishwasher.

Loading the top rack....

loading the top rack

The top rack is designed for cups, glasses, small plates, saucers and bowls. Load plastic items in top rack only. Melting may occur if placed in bottom rack. Load items with open ends facing down for better cleaning and draining. Be sure nothing protrudes through the bottom of the rack.

Loading the bottom rack....

loading the bottom rack

Make sure tall items do not block spray arm rotation. Place plates and platters so that they do not touch. Place bowls, casseroles and sauce pans with soiled surface facing down or towards the center. Tilt slightly for better drainage. Be sure pan handles do not protrude through the bottom of the rack and block the spray arm rotation.

Loading the silverware basket....

Mix spoons, forks and knives to prevent nesting. Mixing items gives better cleaning and drying.

For safety, load sharp knifes and forks with handles up. Be sure nothing protrudes through bottom of basket or rack to block the spray arm. Do not mix silver and stainless to avoid damaging the silver finish.
