Have you ever wondered what happens inside the dishwasher when you turn it on? If you answered yes then there’s a very good chance that you’re either an engineer or you’re destined to be one.
- Upon being turned on, the basin located at the bottom starts filling up with water (can be cold or hot depending on the model).
- The heating element will then heat the water to 105-155 degrees Fahrenheit.
- After that the detergent dispenser opens up, allowing the soap to mix with water.
- The pump then makes the soapy water move through the spray arms with enough speed that results in the spinning of arms.
- Sloshing of soapy water continues for about 30 minutes.
- The dirty water is then drained from the pipes located under the sink.
- The basin then fills up with clean water and that is used for rinsing the dishes.
- The heating element is used for drying the dishes.
- Open Sesame and the dishes are done!
