Question about Dishwashers
I just moved into a condo, and told the landlord that I don't make enough dirty dishes to use the dishwasher. Big mistake. He wants me to run the dishwasher at least once a month to keep the thing from breaking and then having to pay the cost of repair. I said I don't want to do that because of the cost of electricity. Is it really necessary to periodically run a dishwasher?
In theory it could possibly cause the unit to burn out but doubtful. it wouldnt hurt to just run it on a light cycle. the landlord certainly cannot hold you responsible if you do not run it and it does break.
one other thing if you do not use the dishwasher it will most likely start to smell after some time of no use.
you are talking about $4 dollars a month to run a dishwasher weekly.
