How a Dish­washer Works

Consumer Voice - - Smart Consumer Guide -

The dish­washer takes in cold wa­ter and heats it to a tem­per­a­ture far higher than pos­si­ble for hand wash­ing. The dish­washer does not use a great deal of wa­ter, as it does not ac­tu­ally fill up. The wa­ter en­ters through a resin-based wa­ter soft­ener, usu­ally in the base of the ma­chine. The wa­ter soft­ener uses gran­u­lar salt to main­tain its ef­fi­ciency and will re­quire top­ping-up reg­u­larly. Pumps force the wa­ter at high tem­per­a­ture into ro­tat­ing arms con­tain­ing spray jets. It is the force of the wa­ter that ro­tates the arms and en­ables the wa­ter and de­ter­gent to reach all parts of the load. Af­ter the pro­grammed cy­cle of wash­ing and rins­ing is com­plete, heat­ing el­e­ments dry the dishes, or they are left to drain dry.
