    Dishwasher 11th Sep 17 at 9:49 AM
    Had a fagor dishwasher today; i guess many techs have been out there redoing the drain assebly, pumps, soap operation and all kinds of stuff. But this dishwasher kept over spilling/overflowing all over the floor with soap. My question is, don't they make a high temp soap for commerical dishwashers that go over in the 3-400 degree range? This washer starts at 90 F and goes to 450. They wash some delicats in there most of the time, but when they crank the temp up the soap goes all over. So my guess is, they're using a soap thats not ment for high temp operations?

    I suspect, by your use of those old fashioned numbers, that you are in the colonies. Us Brits will be very confused.

    Probably a pressure dishwasher, a bit like a pressure cooker. Close the door, wind up the massive handle to seal it, step back and enjoy your crockery and cutlery being cleansed by superheated water.

    I dread to think what the cycle time is though.
