Is Rinsing Dishes Important Before Dishwashing?

You may have been told, even as a child, to rinse those dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Maybe you were allowed to just put them in the dishwasher, food and all.You may think it is a waste of time and water to scrape the dishes out and rinse them. Rinsing them may help your dishwasher do its job more effectively. There is clearly no right or wrong way to put dishes in the dishwasher. It might matter though, depending on what dishwasher you have.

Model Might Matter

Most people do believe you should scrape out the larger food left-overs. Most people wouldn’t leave a chunk of hamburger or fries on their plate and just throw it in the dishwasher. Nobody knows if this is right or not. Most dishwasher manufacturers will tell you, it is a waste of water to do a complete rinse. The newer models of dishwashers do clean dishes better according to appliance repair providers. You can also find instructions about rinsing with your model by checking the user’s guide.

Rinse and Prevent

When asked, there were appliance repair centers that agreed with the rinse first method. They also agreed that to prevent costly, future repairs on your dishwasher as a good reason to rinse. A buildup of food in the pump assembly will keep dishes from being cleaned properly. If dishes are rinsed before being put in the dishwasher, the appliance will not have to work as hard to breakdown food. Rinsing before washing could give your dishwasher a longer lifespan as well.

Small particles of food can be disposed of by your dishwasher but larger pieces of food cannot be broken down. Food and grease clogs will have you calling an appliance service in Woodbridge and most appliance calls will be $140 or more. It is important to hire the services of a licensed, insured and bonded service. You can look online or get referrals.

Dishwasher Detergent

Service providers are not sure if dishwasher detergent helps to clean food off of your dishes are not. It is debated among service repair people that some think that the soap is needed to interact with the food stuff to clean the dishes. Soap residue, food particles and even minerals out of your water are all going to contribute to sludge in your dishwashers pump assembly. When this sludge builds up in your dishwasher pump assembly, your dishes will not get as clean as they should. This build up will equal your dishes being washed in dirty water.
