1. Dirty Dishes

Placing dirty dishes in the dishwasher can clog the pump assembly, drain lines, or spray arms. A buildup in the pump assembly can prevent the dishes from getting properly cleaned.

2. Overloading

One of the easiest ways to make sure everything can get sprayed is not to overload your dishwasher. Yes, you want to run it when it is full because this saves time and resources, but overfilling it will not allow it to wash properly. In fact, Overloading prevents dishes from getting fully cleaned and may cause you to rinse the same dishes twice, causing additional wear on the unit. There is a fine line between full and overload.
