Washer fill hoses can crack over time, and create the possibility of flood. It is a good idea to regularly inspect the condition of the hose connections at the water supply tap and at the connections to the washer. Look for cracks, evidence of leaking, or weak spots
Due to changes in dishwasher detergent formulation (chiefly removal of phosphates), poor dishwashing results can be experienced. One option to improve dishwashing results is through the use of a dishwasher detergent “booster”, which assists the dishwasher detergent by “replacing” the action that phosphates provided. This is particularly useful if you have hard water conditions. There are several of these boosters on the market, with brand names such as Lime Fresh, LemiShine and Finish Power Up that can help eliminate the film and residue from your dishes.
