Do I need to rinse my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher? VerifiedRinsing the dishes is not necessary, but you do need to remove any large, hard and fat leftovers. These could clog the drain over time.

Can I open the dishwasher while it is running? VerifiedMost 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? VerifiedThis 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? VerifiedPlastic 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.

Can I connect a dishwasher to an extension cord? VerifiedAppliances 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 can handle this. There are extension cords with thicker cables that are made to handle larger appliances

Can my GE appliance also run on a generator? VerifiedIn general this is possible, but always check this with the manufacturer of your generator. Also be aware that some appliances require a lot of power when starting up (ie: refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners). It's also a good idea to use a generator that is voltage regulated and surge protected. When in doubt you should contact the manufacturer.
