Tip & How-To about Dishwashers

Dishwasher Tips!

Don't jam dishes in - give adequate space between plates and bowls to allow the water to circulate freely; moreover, be careful that a large bowl or lid does not block the water spray from reaching the inside of any other dishes and drink cups etc.

Whirlpool gold dishwasher will turn on but not clean dishes

If it looks like the water is circulating then it's possible that soap build up can cause cleaning problems. Try taking a cereal bowl and filling it with an 8 oz bottle of apple cider vinegar (you want apple cider for the citric acid and you want to put in a bowl because the 1st thing a dishwasher does is drain) then put the bowl on the lower rack and wash nothing but the bowl of vinegar. We have found that the new non phosphate soap is also causing problems we have found that Finish tablets work very well and since they are pre-packaged then there is no risk of too much soap causing problems. If that doesn't help then it's possible that the motor is not turning the spray arm at a high enough speed to circulate the water. Hope this helps.

How do you attach bowls to mixer

The bowl sits on a round plate. If the bowl cannot sit properly, moce the round base a notch on the right to give more bowl space.

how do you make an ice bowl? Is it something that I could do easily at home?

Put ice cubes in the bottom of a large bowl. Put a smaller bowl inside the bigger bowl and using a wooden skewer, insert flowers between the ice cubes. Now add some cold water to fill the space between the ice cubes and tapes the bowls together so they don't' slip around and freeze it.

To remove the bowls after freezing you will need to use some warm water to ease it out of the bowl.

What are the advantages of plastic bowls?

The nice thing about plastic bowls is that they come in a large variety of shapes and colors, so there's a large selection to choose from. Moreover, they are pretty cheap so they can be replaced pretty quickly.

why does my sunbean mixmaster bowl don't spin?

the spinning plate under the bowl does not have any power to spin the bowl; it only aks as a "lazy susan" carousel that allows the bowl to turn from the movement of the material being wipped in the bowl.
the beaters are purposely off-center of the bowl in ordwer to create a dragging motion of the material in the bowl, thus pulling (that is, spinning) the bowl slowly. If the beaters are not off to the side of the bowl, you will not get the pulling/spinning motion. Also, if the plate under the bowl does not move very easily, then the bowl will not spin. You may have to remove the spin plate and clean the center pivot for the plate to move freely. Good Luck, Macgivor.
