Dishwasher Parts and Accessories From Sears
The majority of modern kitchens include a dishwasher to save time and provide the cleanest dishes possible. In addition to spotless dishes and stemware, these units can sterilize cups, plates, and utensils to reduce the chance of spreading germs and illnesses. Although most major brands of dishwashers provide years of dependable use, all appliances must be maintained. To help with this task, a number of replacement dishwasher parts and useful accessories are available to the homeowner.
If the dishwasher basket is showing wear, there's no need to replace the entire item. Instead use a set of replacement prongs to repair or upgrade any basket. The prongs simply slide securely over the ends of the current upright bars. In addition to protecting fragile dishes and stemware from damage, these coated prong caps prevent the dishwasher basket from rusting, one of the major causes of dishwasher clogs. By preventing clogs and backups, the homeowner can reduce repair bills and maintenance costs.
Small or thin items often fall through the dishwasher basket or utensil tray. When they land on the bottom of the dishwasher, they can prevent the efficient operation of the washer or even cause repair issues. Mesh bags made specifically for the dishwasher can keep any small items, including peelers, chopsticks, and measuring spoons, safe and secure. These affordable products can help extend the life of the dishwasher in addition to protecting any small, dishwasher-safe item.
Silverware baskets are indispensable when it comes to keeping utensils secure inside a functioning dishwasher. However, even the sturdiest basket won't last forever. Luckily, a number of replacement baskets are available. Some even come with lids to further secure delicate items within the basket. Loose forks, spoons, or knives can easily fall to the bottom of the dishwasher and jam any moving parts. By using a silverware basket, the need for more costly dishwasher parts can be prevented.
Even though special dishwashing detergent is used with each load of dishes, this doesn't clean the actual dishwasher. Many homeowners don't realize that the interior this appliance needs to be deep cleaned about once a month in addition to an external cleaning. Special cleaning agents made specifically for this purpose leave the dishwasher smelling fresh while they remove greasy build-up, soap scum, food stains, and any other discoloration. This is one of the best ways to keep an existing appliance looking and working like new for years. Best of all, this is one of the least expensive ways to maintain a dishwasher.
