Tip & How-To about Dishwashers

How to Stop the dishwasher from breaking my glasses

This shelving costs $16 plus $20 for powder coating.
Very easy to assemble taking about 2 hours.
It will stabilize your dishwasher trays so glasses wont fall over. Therefore wont break.
Buy 2 large Baking racks with 1 cm holes from Myers for $8 each.
Use your Angle Grinder to cut to size, making sure the cross wires running from left to right are on top of the long runs. This is because your glasses would slip all the way to the front, if you mounted the racks up the wrong way.
Basically I cut off only one side of the rack, using the cutoff piece for the middle hole.
Next flatten those legs that wont let the rack sit flat down, by using your vice and hammer.

See the diagram below how wide the framing supports wires are apart, that is why nothing stands up on them.
You may have to discard other supplied movable racking.
But the inserted racks, with a hole cut in the middle rack to allow a raised support wire some space, are very stable.

Now after cutting hammering and bending the racks loose some coating and will rust with little rust marks appearing on the edges of all your crockery and cups.
Therefore you will need to powder coat them any colour for years of protection.
Just find a powder coater in the yellow pages and give him the cutout racks.
To save money I told him to coat my Black racks to any colour in his machine, which turned out white.
Note the glass which now stands up stable and straight.

3 Friends went for dinner. the bill was $50. As none of them had change, they put together $20 each. The waitor got $10 back. They left $4 as waitor's tip and divided the remaining $6 amongst themselve which is $2 each. Now, the cost of dinner for each friend is $18, therefore total = $18*3= $54. Plus $4 as tip, which is $58. WHERE DID $2 GO?

Paid $20-00 each.
The meal cost $16-66 each = total of $50-00
The tip cost $1-33 each = total of $54-00
Add Change $2- each = total $60-00

Paid $20-00. Cost of dinner for each friend is not $18-00, it is $16-66. Cost of dinner including tip is $18-00 each. $18-00 x 3 = $54-00. Then the question adds $4-00 as a tip. This has already been accounted for in the $18-00. Plus the $6-00 change =$60-00.

For some reason the question tricks/confuses the brain. You have to work backwards from $60-00. Take away $6-00 in change and it's $54-00. This divided by 3 = $18-00 which is what everyone paid for dinner and the tip. Should be straightforward but in reality it's not.

2 powder trays

Using powder in the pre-wash (open) tray is recommended for heavy loads but may not be required if the dishes get clean with powder in only the wash tray.

what is the amount of time for a regular wash? Time on the plus wash?

a regular wash should take about an hour and a half. plus wash would be longer only because it heats the wash temp hotter.
wash temp is generally around 140 degrees
and your rinse is around 161 degrees.

your flow through heat assembly heats the water at 2 degrees a minute. so it can take anywhere from and hour and a half to two hours for a full cycle.
try turning your sink on hot water until you feel hot water coming out then start the dishwasher so it doesnt have to heat cold water up to those temps. it should run a little shorter.
