How to load dishes into the dishwasher correctly: instructions, videos, tips


In order for the dish­wash­er to work as effi­cient­ly as pos­si­ble, you need to cor­rect­ly load all items into the com­part­ment, tak­ing into account which dish­es should be placed in the upper bas­ket and which in the low­er one. Con­sid­er the basic rules for prepar­ing the dish­wash­er for work and direct­ly the instruc­tions for load­ing.

Preliminary preparation for loading

Before load­ing dish­es into the dish­wash­er, it is nec­es­sary to pre­pare both the device itself and all the items that will be loaded into it.

How to prepare dishes?

If we talk specif­i­cal­ly about prepar­ing dish­es for load­ing, then the fol­low­ing rules will be rel­e­vant for it:

  • Any left­over food that remains on the dish­es must be care­ful­ly swept into the urn with a sponge, rub­ber spat­u­la, or oth­er mild prod­uct. Do not use forks, knives or oth­er hard objects as they may dam­age the fin­ish.
  • If dried food remains remain on the sur­face of the plates, they must also be removed first, because not every machine will be able to ensure their effec­tive clean­ing.
  • If the dish­es are col­lapsi­ble, that is, they con­sist of sev­er­al com­po­nents, then they must be loaded sep­a­rate­ly, because oth­er­wise the pres­sure of water can deform the land­ing joints or even break them.

If you need to arrange a lot of dish­es, you first need to sort the same type of items — plates, cups, glass­es, cut­lery, etc.

After all the kitchen uten­sils are pre­pared for load­ing, you can start prepar­ing the dish­wash­er itself:

  • Find out in the instruc­tions for the dish­wash­er what types of dirt it can han­dle. As a rule, dif­fi­cul­ties arise when wash­ing dish­es from the rem­nants of pro­tein foods, cooked and baked dish­es. If you want to wash dish­es from dirt that your mod­el is dif­fi­cult to cope with, you should first wash it by hand.
  • The design of the device con­tains fil­ters that must be checked before load­ing and, if nec­es­sary, changed. The most impor­tant of them is on the tube that is con­nect­ed to the water sup­ply. If this fil­ter is clogged, then there may be prob­lems with the flu­id sup­ply, and, accord­ing­ly, the qual­i­ty of the wash.

  • It is impor­tant to make sure that all hoses are firm­ly attached to the mount­ing holes. If the dish­wash­er has not been used for a long time, then it is bet­ter to “dri­ve” it to idle before load­ing the dish­es. This will clean the pipes, which could have retained water and even­tu­al­ly acquire an unpleas­ant odor.

Instructions on how to load dishes in the dishwasher

Despite the fact that all dish­wash­ers have a slight­ly dif­fer­ent inter­nal design, you can give a gen­er­al instruc­tion on how to cor­rect­ly place var­i­ous ele­ments in the dish­wash­er:

  • Plates. It should be placed at the bot­tom of the load­ing bay fac­ing the cen­ter, and also slight­ly tilt­ed. This is due to the fact that in most machines the noz­zles spray from the cen­ter to the edges. In no case should the prod­ucts come into con­tact, because this will block the free cir­cu­la­tion of water and reduce the qual­i­ty of wash­ing.

Placement of dishes in the dishwasher

  • Deep con­tain­ers includ­ing cups. Small but deep con­tain­ers should be placed on top of the load­ing bay upside down or at a steep angle. This will allow the jet to wash out dirt more effi­cient­ly, and the water to flow out unhin­dered.

  • Glass­es. On the top box there is a fold­ing plas­tic sec­tion with cells where you need to place glass­es. Such depart­ments are spe­cial­ly designed to hold the legs of the glass­es, pro­tect­ing the dish­es from scratch­es and cracks.

  • Plas­tic. All plas­tic uten­sils must be placed away from the heat­ing ele­ment with the inside down. That is, if it is on top, then it is bet­ter to put the plas­tic down, and if it is from the bot­tom, put it up. This will min­i­mize the tem­per­a­ture effect on them, elim­i­nat­ing defor­ma­tion and melt­ing.

  • Pots, pans, stew­pans. These ele­ments are best placed at the bot­tom upside down or at a steep slope.
  • Cut­lery. They can only be installed in spe­cial trays that are pro­vid­ed in the sec­tions. All of them should be laid down with their han­dles so that none of them come into con­tact with the oth­er. Large appli­ances will block water sprin­klers, noz­zles and noz­zles, so they are best placed in a hor­i­zon­tal posi­tion in the top box.

Washing cutlery

  • Cut­ting boards and trays. They should be placed in trays designed for plates. Expe­ri­ence shows that wood­en prod­ucts, in par­tic­u­lar cut­ting boards, are best washed by hand. First­ly, the tex­ture of the wood itself con­tributes to a stronger absorp­tion of food residues into the sur­face, and sec­ond­ly, the mate­r­i­al can crack under the high tem­per­a­ture of the cleans­ing waters.

After the dish­es are loaded, check that no object is block­ing the deter­gent con­tain­er. If it is blocked, you can for­get about high-qual­i­ty wash­ing.

It is worth con­sid­er­ing that in some mod­els of dish­wash­ers, replace­able sec­tions of var­i­ous con­fig­u­ra­tions are pro­vid­ed. Thanks to this, you can adapt the wash­ing com­part­ment to the type of dish­es you load.

Dishwasher Loading Tips

There are some basic tips for load­ing the dish­wash­er that will allow you to main­tain the qual­i­ty of the sink, as well as the per­for­mance of the device:

  • If the design of the device does not assume the pres­ence of upper noz­zles, then all ele­ments of the dish­es must be posi­tioned so that they do not inter­fere with the free flow of water down.
  • Do not load dish­es with a height high­er than the height of the bot­tom rack into the dish­wash­er, as it will make it dif­fi­cult to open the machine door after the end of the wash cycle.
  • If there are too many dish­es, it is bet­ter to wash them in stages, load­ing the same type of items. Exces­sive load­ing can not only impair the qual­i­ty of work, but also reduce the wash­ing effi­cien­cy.

Loading the dishwasher

  • When there are not a lot of dish­es, try to place them clos­er to the cen­ter, because some dish­wash­ers have only one rock­er, which often can­not cope with the entire vol­ume of the com­part­ment with the same qual­i­ty.
  • Frag­ile prod­ucts are best placed away from each oth­er, because the vibra­tion and vibra­tions that occur when exposed to a water jet can dam­age them.
  • Con­ven­tion­al kitchen mix­tures that are used for hand wash­ing should nev­er be used in a dish­wash­er. This neg­a­tive­ly affects its per­for­mance and can dis­able it. So, you should choose spe­cial tablets, gels and liq­uids for the dish­wash­er, rins­es, degreas­er.
  • 2–3 times a year, when load­ing, spe­cial anti-scale agents should be added to the wash­ing com­po­nents. They will allow you to clean the sur­face of the dish­wash­er parts from deposits that form dur­ing oper­a­tion.
In any case, you should read the instruc­tions for the dish­wash­er, which is attached by the man­u­fac­tur­er. It indi­cates what types of dish­es can be washed in your mod­el, gives rec­om­men­da­tions on its loca­tion in the com­part­ments, etc. You can also read the tips in our arti­cle.

In which box should large items be placed? In which com­part­ment is it bet­ter to arrange pots and plates, and in which — glass­es and cups? You will find answers to these ques­tions in the fol­low­ing video:

As not­ed above, each dish­wash­er mod­el has its own load­ing nuances. For exam­ple, in the fol­low­ing video you will learn how to prop­er­ly load the Can­dy aggre­gate:

Prop­er load­ing and prepa­ra­tion of the dish­wash­er is the key to high-qual­i­ty and effi­cient wash­ing. Do not neglect these aspects, because oth­er­wise your device will not be as pro­duc­tive as pos­si­ble, and then the dish­es will have to be washed man­u­al­ly. We also rec­om­mend that you famil­iar­ize your­self with the rules for car­ing for a dish­wash­er.
