Check Your Filter Often
When you load your dishes into your dishwasher, particles of food that are on the plate will end up in the filter.

However, even with diligent rinsing, there will always be leftover food present that will clog your filter.
Make sure to routinely wipe down and thoroughly clean your dishwasher periodically. On top of this regular cleaning, which will reduce the build up in your dishwasher’s filter, you will also need to periodically check and perhaps clean the filter. Do not know where you dishwasher filter is located? Have no fear! The dishwasher filter is very easy to find. At the floor of the dishwasher, the filter will be easily visible. Make sure to keep this filter and the rest of the dishwasher free of any and all debris, as prolonged debris can affect the filter mechanics.
Check Your Water Jet
Make sure to sometimes check and find all the water jets in your homes dishwasher. Try to make a mental note of their condition and state, and if you one day see a change in appearance or condition, something might be wrong.
