Commercial Appliance Service Optimizes Key Dishwashing Functions
Virtually all dishwashers need a detergent during the wash cycle. Detergents help dissolve and remove oils and bits of food. Some dishwashers may also use a rinse aid that helps water drain quicker during the rinse cycle. While using this chemical can speed up the process of getting usable dishes, not all commercial machines use it. Avoid adding rinse aid to a washer that is not equipped for it. Finally, if you have a low-temperature washer, you may also need to use a chemical sanitizer to get rid of bacteria and bring your dishes up to the proper hygiene standards.
In a commercial dishwasher, the water comes out of spinning or stationary wash arms. One common problem that affects agitation occurs when the wash arms become clogged. Most newer washer models have removable arms in order to make cleaning out blockages easier.
Problems with agitation can also arise due to low water pressure. Low pressure may stem from a problem with your dishwasher, such as a leaking pipe or badly sealed connection. It can also result from problems with your plumbing, such as insufficient water supply, leaking plumbing pipes or pressure issues with your system. If you have made sure the wash arms are clear, a commercial appliance service can troubleshoot water pressure issues.
