Dirty Dishes? Your Dishwasher May Be the Problem!
What should go where
Keep in mind that all your plastic bowls or your Tupperware-type accessories should be on the top rack. Additionally, make sure that metal cutlery is nowhere near breakable dishes, since those sharp edges could easily damage some of your plates. Also, make sure you place your knives face down Finally, always place your bowls facing down, as you don't want water to get stuck in it. If you're washing large dishes, make sure that they don't interfere with the rotating arms.
Ensure that anything that can break has enough space to move around, because the washing cycle often causes plates to vibrate, and not having enough space might prevent the flow of water all around the chamber, which means some stains will remain on your plates.
Of course, loading your dishwasher optimally depends on the model of your device, and some even have a third rack specifically for cutlery.
