Don’t Clean Your Dishwasher Filter? Get A Maytag!

Maytag Dishwashers at Bekins, 4-blade chopper Dishwasher Cleaning

We recommend many ways to maintain your appliances. However, if you are someone who does not do the little things to maintain them, think about a Maytag brand dishwasher for your home. While other brands ask you to remove and clean their filter, Maytag uses a 4-blade chopper to disintegrate any food particles.

Why Do I Need A Filter Or 4-Blade Chopper?

Maytag 4-blade chopper, get Maytag dishwashers at Bekins.

You will obviously have food and drink particles left on your dirty dishes. Some people don’t know that your dishwasher cleans better when it has particles to latch onto.

However, your dishwasher would struggle to rinse away bigger particles. Larger particles will either collect in a filter so you can wash them away in your sink, or they need to get chopped down to a size that can fit into your drain.

Maytag dishwashers choose to disintegrate larger food particles with a 4-blade chopper. The chopper creates one less element that needs cleaning in your dishwasher.

Use the 4-blade chopper in our showroom

It won’t cost you a dime to test a Maytag dishwasher and compare it to other brands in our state-of-the-art, interactive showrooms. Nor will it cost you anything to let our experts help you determine the best model for your needs.

Simple Maintenance: Clean Your Dishwasher Today

Have you washed your dishwasher lately? That may sound like a funny question. However, cleaners such as Affresh and Glisten can help.

Especially if your glasses and dishes get cloudy after a wash.

CLEAN YOUR DISHWASHER TODAY

Brands like Whirlpool recommend cleaning the interior of your dishwasher about once per month.

If you can’t remember to clean it each month, just focus on cleaning it today.

We offer two cleaners that can help, Affresh and Glisten. However, we recommend you consult the Use and Care Guide for your appliance before starting.

Replacing Your Appliance Light Bulb

Replacing your appliance light bulbs - Bekins Repair Service

COMMON APPLIANCE LIGHT BULB MISTAKE

Our repair technicians see a variety of issues and we always want to help our customers avoid an easy mistake. Appliance light bulbs seem rather simple to change, but we have seen a small mistake result in a big repair bill.

What mistake do we see the most? Someone wants to change out a light bulb on their appliance, but they want a brighter bulb so they install one with a higher wattage.

The new bulb forces the control board or transformer on the appliance to fail and even burn out other components.

Consult your Use and Care Guide to install the manufacturer-recommended voltage and wattage.

Appliance Light Bulbs - Bekins Service Blog

HANDLING YOUR APPLIANCE LIGHT BULBs

We also see another common problem. People mishandle their appliance light bulbs when they install a new one.

Halogen bulbs must be handled carefully and kept clean. Even touching the glass with clean fingers can leave enough oil residue to create a problem. The residue creates a hot spot which shortens the life of the bulb.

Any bulb should be handled with a clean cloth, tissue or clean gloves.

NEED SOME CLARITY?

Again, we always recommend you consult the Use and Care Guide for your appliance. If you have further questions, feel free to call 616-288-1020 and ask for our Service Department. Click here if you want to schedule a repair service.
