How Dishwashers Work - long and tedious to wash dishes in a restaurant
Basically, the dishwasher is a robot that cleans and cleans dirty dishes.
Humans have to load plates, add detergent, set up the appropriate washing cycle and turn it on, but the dishwasher itself does a series of functions.
Dishwasher: In addition, the dishwasher will monitor itself to make sure everything is working properly. A timer (
Or a small computer)
Adjust the length of each cycle.
The sensor detects the temperature of water and air to prevent the dishwasher from overheating or damaging the dishes.
Another sensor can judge whether the water level is too high and activate the drainage function to prevent the dishwasher from overflowing.
Some dishwashers even have sensors to detect dirt from the water flowing out of the plate.
The dishwasher knows the dishes are clean when the water is clear enough.
In this article, we will discuss in detail how the dishwasher is done, how to use the dishwasher correctly, and what features to look for when purchasing the dishwasher.
Although the dishwasher is water dense, it is not actually filled with water.
There is only one small basin at the bottom to fill.
There, the heating element heats the water to 130 to 140 degrees F.
Then a pump pushes the water up to the water jet, in which the water is squeezed out and sprayed on a dirty plate.

If you put your thumb at the end of the hose and reduce the space for water to flow out, it spews out more vigorously.
The injection device of the dishwasher works the same principle.
The power of the water also makes the arm that keeps the jet stream spinning, just like a lawn sprinkler.

Depending on the type of dishwasher, the drain may go directly into the pipe under the sink or through the hose into the sink itself.
The last step of the washing cycle is optional-the dry cycle.
The heating element at the bottom of the dishwasher heats the air inside to help the dishwasher dry.
In order to save energy, some people let them dry without heat.
