Appliances - Dishwasher



  • If you are buying a dishwasher, look for ENERGY STAR qualified models with features like air power drying and overnight drying settings.
  • Scrape dishes instead of rinsing them in hot water before loading. If you choose to rinse your dishes, use cold water.
  • Be sure that the dishwasher is full, but not overloaded. Use the shortest wash cycle that will clean your dishes properly and be sure to use the right amount of detergent.
  • Keep your dishwasher drains and filters clean.
  • Turn off the drying cycle on your dishwasher, open the door and let the dishware and silverware air dry.
  • Fill the sink and use a stopper, or fill a large pot rather than wash or rinse dishes under running hot water.
  • Use cold water instead of hot water when running your garbage disposal. With hot water, fats can melt and clog the drainpipe when they cool.
