    IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS.

    The cutlery basket in your dishwasher can often become damaged and develop holes, in which case you should replace it with a new one.

    There are different types of cutlery basket available in all shapes and sizes. Genuine cutlery baskets are made by the manufacturer of your dishwasher, and universal ones are an inexpensive alternative made to fit a range of dishwasher brands.

    When you're ordering a new cutlery basket, the most important thing to check is the dimensions. You'll need to make sure its measurements are the same as the one you're replacing so that it fits nicely into the correct area, and also so it's not so tall that it obstructs the spray arm.

    To prevent crusty contamination on glasses and plates always rinse of all traces of food and sauces thoroughly to get the best results possible.
