A quality dishwasher can last for 10 to 12 years with proper maintenance. For your dishwasher to last this long, you have to ensure that it runs regularly, and you can clean out the filter anytime it gets dirty. In many cases, the dishwasher may break down if the gasket or seal gets worn out.
With regular operation and inspection of the dishwasher, you will keep the parts in the best condition and working correctly. Food leftovers easily clog dishwashers, and so you must make sure these remains don’t go in the dishwasher. It is also wise to wait until the dishwasher is full before pushing the “start” button. Run the recommended clean dishwasher cycle every four weeks.
