Should You Rinse Your Dishes Before Using a Dishwasher? An Expert Weighs In, Poughkeepsie, New York

Everyone in your family has their unique way of dealing with the dishwasher, from how long they run it to the way they position plates and bowls. But one issue is more debated than the rest put together: should you rinse your dirty dishes before you load them, or is it okay to place them straight into the dishwasher?

The dishwasher repair pros at Just Appliance Repair in Poughkeepsie, NY, have decided to weigh in on this controversial topic. Whether you rinse or not, here’s how to get the most out of that time-saving appliance:

  • Check Your User Guide: Dishwashers all have different capabilities when it comes to dealing with food waste, so rules about rinsing aren’t one-size-fits-all. Read your manual to see whether it states that you should or should not rinse dishes.
  • diswasher repairScrape the Plates: Even if you choose not to rinse, you still shouldn’t put in a plate that contains part of a meal. Scrape off excess food prevent clogs in the drain lines and pump.
  • Watch for Issues: If you decide not to rinse your dishes before running the dishwasher, keep an eye out for problems. If you notice poor performance or accumulated debris in the pump assembly, remedy the problem and then begin rinsing more thoroughly to avoid dishwasher repairs.
  • Conserve Water: If you decide to rinse, minimize your water usage to benefit the environment and your water bill. Knowing your dishes will go into the dishwasher, a quick rinse should suffice — no need to spend several minutes scrubbing and washing.
