Dishwasher Performance
« on: March 30, 2010, 08:34:11 AM »

Does anyone have a good method of checking the force of the water spraying on the dishes?  Being that it is not possible to see inside the cabinent during operation I am contemplating using a piece of plexiglass to cover the door opening to get a better idea of what is going on.  Does anyone have any comments or suggestions on this subject?   I understand that water level, water temperature and other things determine how well the dishes are cleaned but getting a good handle on how good the pump is without actually changing it out seems to be a problem.

Fill the unit with water set your spray arms to the front shut the door and let the unit run for a short time.You should hear the water hitting the tub as the arms turn.Open door to see that they are all turning.
