Most of today's washers, even the least expensive ones, have pre-wash soak and/or rinse cycles, detergent and bleach/dye dispensers, water temperature controls, water level controls for conserving water when washing small or medium loads, lint filters, and a series of washing cycle controls to vary the action of the agitator and the spin cycle.

An automatic washer basically does what you would do if you were going to wash clothes by hand, but it does it faster: clothes go in, water comes in and the clothes are washed, dirty water goes out, clean water comes in, clothes rinse, water goes out, and clothes come out.

 When you set the selector switch and apply power, a double solenoid valve is activated. Water is allowed to flow in to the preset level, at which point the solenoids slam shut and cut off the inflow of water. (Many washers also have an overflow sensor or some system to handle an overflow of water if the solenoids fail to shut off the water.) Next the washing cycle is activated.

The agitator moves back and forth, and sometimes up and down as well, to clean the clothes. Agitator action is driven by a motor, a system of gears and/or belts, and a cam to create the reciprocal (back and forth) motion needed. Meanwhile, in most units a pump is used to recirculate and filter the wash water. The pump is activated and the wash water is drained from the tub.

To reduce the amount of water even more, the motor causes the tub to spin. The water is pulled out of the clothes by centrifugal force, leaving the clothes damp instead of soaking wet. During machine operation, short pauses occur as the washer moves from one cycle to another, or even in the middle of a particular wash or rinse cycle. These pauses are part of normal operation of a servo-mechanism inside the appliance as it changes from one mode to another.

House chores can be very frustrating and time wasteful. The most time consuming chore is most probably, doing the dishes. Even if you are not the type of person who cooks on a regular basis, you are still wasting some time doing dishes. Think about the glasses and cups that you regularly use, not to mention the cutlery. Furthermore, if you cook on a daily basis for your whole family, then you are definitely wasting  a lot of time doing the dishes.

For example, if you cook 20 meals a week for four family members, you will be spending about 6 hours a week doing the dishes. Believe it or not, that means that over the course of a year, you are spending over 300 hours doing the dishes. A dishwasher will let you spend this extra time in a more productive manner while also helping you save about $150/ a year on utilities. Lets take a closer look at some dishwasher reviews and see what are the most efficient dishwashers, time wise and money wise.

Before buying a dishwasher, you need to make sure that it will satisfy your basic need: washing dishes. If you buy a dishwasher but it is not efficient enough and you still have to pre-wash and rinse the dishes, than the dishwasher itself will be almost useless. If you don’t pre-wash your dishes and you run a full load every time you use the dishwasher, you will manage to save about 35% on your water costs. However, if your dishwasher is not good enough in order for the dishes to come out spotless, than it is very hard to determine whether that appliance is useful to you or not. If you have an old dishwasher which also uses a lot of water, the dishwasher might be costing you more money and time than doing the dishes by hand. Therefore, you need to purchase an Energy Star dishwasher which will save a lot of water. In order to help you save time, it is best if the dishwasher also has a powerful pre-steaming feature which will clean even heavily stained dishes.

Given the considerations presented above, it is safe to say that the best time saving dishwashers are the ones which don’t require a pre-rinse.  Samsung DMT300RFS is one of the most top rated dishwashers on the market. This dishwasher has a built in hard food disposer which will completely eradicate the hard food of your dishes. The GE GDWT668VSS is also one of the best time saving dishwashers as it has a great steam pre-wash feature which completely eliminated the need to pre-rinse the dishes before washing them. The Ascenta SHE3AR75UC is a Bosch integrated dishwasher which also delivers spotless dishes even if they are not pre-rinsed.
Most modern dishwashers have a similar steam feature but they are not all as efficient. In order for a dishwasher to completely eliminate the need of pre-washing the dishes, it needs to spray hot water on the dishes from different angles. Therefore, next time you shop for a dishwasher, make sure that it has no less and no more than three hot water spraying elements.

Chalkboard Thoughts...

One...I finished my chalkboard banner a couple days ago. I'm excited about it! And two...I love this quote right now. I read Blue Like Jazz a few months ago for the first time.

 I don't know why I never jumped on that band wagon, but it's a great book.

 I really enjoyed it. I came across this quote while I was reading it and feel like it really applies to my life over the past several months. I feel like in general, I grew up being a pretty black and white, cookie-cutter, this is the way things go, "arithmetic and formula" kind of person.

I always had my patterns and ways of doing things and didn't really stray from them.

Which in some ways, is great. But I also feel that in some ways, it can be not so great. I feel like God has taught me a lot over the past several months that sometimes, it is just necessary to stretch your faith in Him, and step outside of the cookie cutter pattern that you have built your life around.

I feel like by doing so, I have learned so many new things about God and His character, so many new things about faith and prayer, and have received so many blessings by (I hate to use the cliche phrase) stepping out of the box.

 Don't get me wrong. Sometimes I think the box is good. But sometimes it might not be. And sometimes by stepping out, it brings you to a new place of worship.
