Dishwashers

Dishwashers are a handy appliance to have, but like any electrical appliance, there's always a potential fire risk in using them.

Dishwashers

Safe Use

  • Don’t leave a dishwasher running during the night or when you are out, and switch it off when not in use.
  • Ensure there are no leaks, particularly look for cracks in the detergent drawer, as these could allow water into the electrics
  • Keep the outlet filter clean
  • If your dishwasher begins making a strange noise, don't ignore it. If you think there might be a problem, always unplug it and contact the manufacturer or a qualified repair technician.

Safety First

  • Buy from a reputable dealer/manufacturer
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions
  • Always register your appliance with the manufacturer so you can be notified if there's a problem
