New York Dishwasher Help and Repair
Dishwashers are expensive, so attempting to repair one is usually your best bet, especially if the unit is less than 7 years old. There are plumbing components to dishwashers as well as electrical aspects, so hiring a qualified dishwasher repairman in New York is very important.
Our fave column of the week, The Fix from the New York Times, discusses common issues with dishwashers this week. The discussion is centered around a question for homeowners as old as time itself: "Why isn't my dishwasher washing dishes?"
Some of the answers to this basic question may surprise you. For example, did you know that pre-washing dishes can actually do more harm than good?
According to Mike Edwards, a senior dishwasher design engineer at BSH Home Appliances in New Bern, N.C.: “Dishwasher detergent aggressively goes after food,” Mr. Edwards said, “and if you don’t have food soil in the unit, it attacks the glasses, and they get cloudy,” a process known as etching that can cause permanent damage.
Other tips include not using the pots and pans cycle and the reason for using proper amount of detergent.
