Tip of the Week


Is your dishwasher running efficiently at the correct wash and rinse temperature?

Keep your dishwasher working to optimum efficiency

Key things to note are:

  • The dishwasher wash cycle should run between 49°C – 60°C
  • The rinse cycle should run between 82°C – 88°C
  • Use the correct detergent at the correct dosage
  • Use the correct rinse aid at the correct dosage
  • Strip and clean the machine daily


Dishwasher baskets that are dirty/slimy or have a pinky orange residue (bacteria) are a clear sign that there is a problem with your dishwasher. Either it is not running at correct temperature or the chemical dosage is incorrect .
