Expensive Dishwasher Mistake: You Always Did it Wrong

Expensive Dishwasher Mistake: You Always Did it Wrong

Dishwasher Mistake—This dishwasher mistake is expensive. After eating, rinse the dirty plates under the tap and put them in the dishwasher. Put the cutlery in the basket, glasses up, leaves down, and switch on. Did you find the bug?

You Should Avoid This Dishwasher Mistake

Most people rinse their plates before putting them in the dishwasher, so the machine doesn’t have to do as much work, and the dishes get cleaner. But precisely, the opposite is the case.

  • Nowadays, almost every dishwasher has a dirt sensor installed to regulate water and water pressure. The sensor scans the water’s dirty and greasy and adjusts the rinsing process accordingly.
  • However, if you wash the dishes beforehand, your dishwasher will think that your dishes are cleaner than they are. It then washes with less water and less pressure—the words are not as clean as you would like.
  • However, rinsing beforehand also wastes hot water, time, and detergent, which is also not desirable in terms of sustainability.
  • In addition, the dishwasher can no longer correctly recognize the soiling during subsequent washing processes. It classifies dirty dishes as cleaner than they are. Ultimately, more dirt sticks to the plate because the dishwasher selects a lower temperature or a shorter wash cycle.

Wash Dishes or not? That’s How it Works.

One thing is clear: If there are still leftovers on the plate, they must, of course, be scraped off first and thrown in the garbage. Otherwise, they’ll be stuck in the sieve, and the water won’t be able to run off.

  • Then, check the manual to see if your dishwasher has a dirt sensor. If you have misplaced the physical manual, a quick internet search of your dishwasher model will usually lead you to the manufacturer’s website and an electronic copy.
  • With a dishwasher with a dirt sensor, you can skip the pre-wash and put the dirty dishes straight into the dishwasher.
  • Additionally, suppose your dishwasher does not have a dirt sensor. In that case, you will have to look at the individual programs: Is an economic program with 30 degrees of warm water sufficient, or do you need a hotter program against grease? With the right program, there is no problem with machines without a dirt sensor.

 Advantages of Using a Dishwasher

Save Water

Are you one of those who believe running the dishwasher is a waste of water? We have to tell you that it is not. Don’t worry. It’s a very general belief; that’s why, in 2012, the Canal de Isabel II conducted a study showing that the water consumption of a dishwasher is an average of 30 liters less than if the dishes are cleaned by hand. Surprising, right?

At Bosch, we think about both your pocket and the environment, which is why our dishwashers have technology that helps you save even more water.

The AquaSensor sensor, for example, guarantees perfect results because it automatically adjusts the amount of water and pressure depending on the degree of dirt it detects.

ActiveWater technology saves water and energy with better water distribution and circulation, optimized filter technology, and faster heating. In short: your dishwasher will be much more efficient than washing by hand.

Consume Less Energy

Speaking of efficiency, It will also help you save electricity. According to the study we were talking about before, if it is used five days a week at maximum capacity, the relative savings exceed 40 euros per year. Of course, to make sure that it helps you spend less energy, in addition to trying to fill it before starting it, look for a dishwasher with an A +++ energy label, which guarantees lower consumption. Although it costs a little more, you will save on electricity throughout its useful life in the long term.

In addition, the EcoSilence motor in Bosch dishwashers combines low energy consumption with minimal noise since it dispenses with traditional graphite brushes.
