Allowing your dishwasher to run an entire cycle can take up to 2 hours, depending on the size of the load. Your dishwasher is already mid-cycle, and then you see two wine glasses from last night. Should you open the door and add them to a basket?
Should you be concerned about how this will affect your dishes, load, and your dishwasher itself? Here’s what happens when you open your dishwasher mid-cycle.
Most dishwashers these days have an open-door feature, so if you suddenly remember an item or two, just pull up on the door, and everything will be alright!
Most high-end dishwashers have child locks that prevent the door from being pulled open by a small, curious hand. But the majority of dishwashers feature a door that automatically opens when the handle is pulled on.
