How does a dishwasher work?
A dishwasher consists of several components that work together to get dishes clean. Here is a brief explanation of how a dishwasher works:
Loaded: First, the dirty dishes are placed in the dishwasher. There are usually several compartments in which the dishes can be placed, such as B. Cutlery compartment, upper and lower basket.
Detergent supply: Before the dishwasher is started, a certain amount of detergent is usually filled into a chamber that automatically introduces the detergent into the water during the rinsing process.
Water supply: The dishwasher fills with water coming from a water tap in the kitchen. The water is cleaned by a filter before it goes into the dishwasher.
Cleaning: Once the water is in the dishwasher, an arm located inside the dishwasher starts rotating and spraying the dishes with water and detergent. This arm ensures that the dishes are thoroughly cleaned.
Heating: The water is heated to make rinsing more effective. Depending on the model and setting, the water is heated to different temperatures.
Pump down: After rinsing is complete, the dirty water is pumped out of the dishwasher and sent to the sewer.
Dry: Some dishwashers have a drying function that dries the dishes after washing by blowing hot air through the dishwasher. Other dishwashers simply let the dishes dry naturally.
Complete: After the rinsing process is complete, the clean dishes can be removed from the dishwasher.
