Handy Hints and FAQ> Dishwashers

Should my dishwasher be connected to cold or hot water?

We recommend dishwashers are connected to a cold water tap as they heat water automatically during the wash cycles. This will ensure the thermostats are switching at the correct times. It is also more energy efficient.

Should I use rinse aid in my dishwasher?

We recommend using rinse aid it will give your glass wear and cutlery a better finish and assist in the drying process. Be careful not to overfill or spill rinse aid in your dishwasher as it is very sudsy. If you do spill any, we advise to mop it up immediately. Note: Do not use 3, 5 or 10 in one tablets – if you are using rinse aid as this will cause over sudsing.  We recommend using a high quality standard tablet or powder as well as rinse aid.

Should I have my Dishwasher Serviced?

We recommend you have your dishwasher serviced and an electrical safety check annually to keep it in good working order.

NOTE: Dishwashers in busy businesses should have them serviced more frequently.
