Once you have purchased your dishwasher there are ways in which you can minimise the cost of running your machine:-

  • Only run the dishwasher when it is full. Running a 12 place setting machine ¾ full every time will mean more cycles and cost up to £15 a year more.
  • Use the economy programme whenever you can. Consult your manual to ensure you know which one this is.
  • Don’t rinse your dishes before loading them in the machine, particularly in hot water. This will use more energy and increase your bills. Just scrape the dirty dishes; the dishwashers’ job is to clean them!
