How a Dish­washer Works

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Home & Food Housebook -

1 Once it is loaded and pow­ered on, wa­ter is pumped into the ma­chine and through the spray arms to rinse dishes clean. 2 The ma­chine mixes warm wa­ter with dish­wash­ing de­ter­gent, and sprays it onto the dishes. 3 It then rinses the dishes with warm wa­ter – the tem­per­a­ture and rinse cy­cle vary, depend­ing on what you se­lect. 4 Fi­nally, the dish­washer gen­er­ates hot air to dry the dishes.

Set­ting Up

Do I need to hack my kitchen to in­stall a dish­washer? No. Free-stand­ing units can con­nect to an ex­ist­ing tap and wa­ter out­let (to dis­charge dirty wa­ter). Your dish­washer can even share a tap and out­let with your washer – just at­tach a mul­ti­tap or pipe adapter (avail­able from hard­ware stores) to it. A plumber can also make mi­nor ad­just­ments to your pip­ing to ac­com­mo­date the dish­washer.
