Can I open the dishwasher while it is running? Verified
Most dishwashers are equipped with a water stop, making the program stop immediately when the door is opened and meaning no water will come out. With some models this can cause problems over time. With built-in dishwashers it is possible that frequently opening the dishwasher while running may cause water damage to surrounging cabinets because of the steam that is released.

Should I open the dishwasher after it finished running to have the dishes dry quicker? Verified
This depends on the type of dishwasher and the location of the dishwasher. Some dishwashers are equipped with a feature that dries the dishes after the washing program. In that case opening the dishwasher will have no added value. With built-in dishwashers it is possible that frequently opening the dishwasher while running may cause water damage to surrounging cabinets because of the steam that is released.

After the dishwaser has finished its cycle, the plastic dishes are still wet but the rest isn't. Why is that? Verified
Plastic is a bad conductor of heat, allowing the products to cool down quickly. The moisture that remains on it then evaporates far less than for example on ceramics or metal.

Appliances that require large amounts of power, like a dishwasher, can not be connected to all extension cords. See what the power usage of the dishwasher is, which is indicated in Watt, and check if the extension cord cn handle this. There are extension cords with thicker cables that are made to handle larger appliances.

Can I put pans with Teflon in the dishwasher? Verified
Yes, you can. However, the pan will wear faster than when it is cleaned by hand. When cleaning a pan with Teflon by hand, never use a scourer but use a soft sponge or cloth.
