What is the best way to sanitize my dogs bowl?


Sanitizing a dog bowl is quite simple. I recommend following these easy instructions:


Scrape off any excess food and rinse the bowl with dish soap and a sponge.


2. Rinse off and repeat step 1 if there are any leftover food particles.

3. Scrub the bowl with a fine steel wool pad and a mild cleanser.

4. Using a heavy steel wool pad you should apply more cleanser and scrub thoroughly.

5. Lastly, give the bowl one last scrubbing with a fine steel wool pad and then dry the bowl with some paper towel.

Manual for hotpoint how to work it


  • Load the appliance with dirty dishes, placing soiled pots and pans on the lower rack where they will be subjected to the most vigorous cleaning. Glassware and dishwasher-safe plastics should go on the top rack. It is not necessary to rinse dishes before loading them in the Hotpoint appliance, unless the dishes have been sitting for awhile and the food particles have dried.

  • Fill the detergent compartment with your preferred brand of dishwashing detergent, and add glass rinse solution to the rinse reservoir on the inside of the door if your model is equipped with one, then close the door to lock in place.

  • Select the cycle you wish to use and press the button. For pots and pans, use the heavy-duty cycle. Normal wash is fine for dishes and utensils.

  • Save on your energy bill by running the dishwasher only when it is full and by allowing the dishes to air dry instead of using the heat dry function on the appliance.

    Regular cycle no longer cleans well


    Thanks for the clarification (we get a lot of people on here that don't know how to really use a dishwasher).

    Sounds to me like the DW may need a through going over.

    Confirm the make and model of the DW so I can see how it's built. I am suspect that with all the food particles and film you mention, that the spray heads are clogged in the spray bars, and, check that the drain hose is not kinked, and it's attachment into the garbage disposal is clear. I've had these clog before, limiting the ability of the DW to get rid of the dirty water.

    Maytag Quiet Series 100, Model # MDB5600AWS, built in dishwasher. Does not get the dishes clean, dishes stay dirty after multiple cycles of washing. Please help!


    We also have a Quiet series 100 and had the same problem, the dishes always came out dingy or with food all over them. My washer is about 5 years old and worked well for about 4 of them but the last year has been doing a poorer and poorer job washing the dishes. I finally broke down and removed the racks and all of the plastic parts from the inside of the washer. Doing this revealed that the groves in the under side of most of the plastic parts was clogged with food and debris. After a good scrubbing with water and a brush then reassembly it worked like a new washer again, cleaning the dishes very well and the best part is it saved us about $700.00 for another washer.

    Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes


    If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

    Dirty dishes


    On the bottom pull the wash arm straight up and out. It shouldn't be clipped because they held in by gravity. Under there is where you will find extra crud that gets lodged underneath the arm where you can't see it. Do you fill the rinse agent reservoir? Also try using liquid tabs or gel if you are using powder. Hope it helped!

    Dishes still dirty after heavy wash cycle


    There is a screen on the drain area of the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned. It has a plastic mesh screen on it - you can't miss it. Second get an old toothbrush and clean out the little jets on the washing arms that spin around. You will notice these holes are clogged up with calcium deposits etc. Those things done you will have a new dishwasher again. You need to do this every 6 months or so. Also use a rinse conditioner for a while to assure the jets are clean. Good Luck

    Hello,
    Welcome to fixya,

    You said, you have a whirlpool quiet partner dishwasher that is not getting even light food residue off the dishes. Cycles seem to be running and progressing normally, tho you do not think the water is spraying from the arms with adequate force.


    I have the same machine.
    And I notice if I leave the dishes in the sink rather than rinsing them off and putting them directly into the dishwasher, (Like My Wife says to do). That sometimes I have the same problem.
    So I bought Jet Dry, and filled the holder. It's a small sometimes clear plastic knob that unscrews out above the soap dish.Fill it once a month!
    Do you put the detergent in both cups or only the closed one?
    1. If the load is not real dirty you should only have to fill the one with the door that closes.
    If it is real dirty then both. To always use both is a waste of money!
    2. If your hot water heater is far from your dishwasher, let the hot water tap run a minute till it comes out hot, before starting the dishwasher.
    3.If the dishes or pans are very dirty and or baked on use hi temp scower and heavy or potscruber for those loads.

    I use heavy wash and hot temp scower if the stuff is relly messy or dryed on.
    And for baked on HI- temp scower and pot scruber which sprays harder.

    You will have to experiment a little to see what works for you.
    You will find it washeing good after you find what works for your families dish habits!

    If you have any more questions let me know!!!

    Please remember to leave me a solved before you leave the site.
    Thank You for using us!
