Almost 30 more minutes of dishwasher.

      It’s like crack for ADHD as he goes in-depth, down many of the rabbit holes other informational shows gloss over, if they would even cover the subject to begin with.

      NOTE: do not follow any of the tips without checking your own dishwashers manual and testing its cycles. I found that my 1.5hr cycle cleaned better than the 2.5hr, during the 1.5 it instantly releases the detergent so I can just dump it anywhere, and that the difference in cost between the cheapest powder and tablets (locally) was negligible (thanks Aldi!).

      PRO TIP: get the tablets that have a water soluble wrapper and feel like you’re living in the future.

        I would advise against the water soluble wrapper pods since they’re iirc a major contributor to microplastics in our water

        I actually had to buy a new dishwasher and in Germany every dishwasher has to be set to economical cleaning mode as default. That being said there is also a fast mode, but you have to use special tabs that dissolve fast enough. Otherwise they will not dissolve fully during the washing stage and then the stuff would be stuck in the dishwasher after drying and it might seriously reduce lifetime of seals etc. So be careful with short washing programs on modern dishwashers!

    As someone who’s worked on industrial machinery for food production all my life, I’m consistently amazed at what a simple dishwasher can do, and how it can do so for YEARS with essentially zero maintenance. Cleaning food residue is HARD.
    I just bought a new one recently (the old one wasn’t actually broken, despite being very old, so I gave it away), and I can’t help but open it up every once in a while to admire it. How much time these devices save us!

      Depends on your luck. I’ve had to repair my Samsung dishwasher 3 times in 5 years and yet my parents bought the cheapest possible model 15 years ago and it operates lawlessly and does a better job at cleaning.

        Yeah quality of the brand really matters. Samsung makes some of the worst appliances. And older appliances really were just built better in many cases.

        Samsung

        Well there’s your problem right there.

        Honestly, I worked as a house cleaner for a bit, and any samsung dishwasher I had to deal with was either broken or new.

        operates lawlessly

        as long as it doesn’t get caught!

        Jokes aside, I’ve only ever owned European-made appliances. My old dishwasher was a Bosch that came with the apartment when we bought it, I don’t know how old it was, but I guess around 20 years, and again, I replaced but it was still working.
        I don’t buy appliances at big box stores though, I always go to a dedicated shop where they kinda select their offerings, as they also have to deal with support calls. There’s one in my city that, despite being a fraction of a big box store, moves A LOT of merchandise, so they also have a lot of experience, so far I’ve been quite happy.

        I had a Samsung dishwasher that I dumped after just 4 years because it kept breaking every 6 to 12 months. I also have a fridge that is 8 years old that cost me an arm and a leg from Samsung and I need to keep fixing it every couple of years and have given up on fixing the ice maker. Also just dispossessed of a washing machine last month from, you guessed, Samsung because the mother board fried and they don’t sell it anymore, it was 6 years old. I still have a curved LED 85" TV that some how broke in the corner, for fucks sake, it’s made of aluminum! Not only that, the smart TV menus are infected with ads everywhere. Why the hell did that happen? It was a very expensive TV when I bought it. I have a few Hisense TVs and they last years and are ridiculously cheap. Samsung has a beautiful design but all their products are just plain crap with planned obsolescence. Never again will I buy a Samsung home appliance.

          My whole kitchen is Samsung. Stove needed a new bimetal switch because the cooling fan for the top got stuck on. The dish washer garbage disposal knife blew apart into fragments twice and the gaskets rotted and fell apart. Microwave magneto diode blew. Its all literal garbage, I’m selling my house soon and leaving that trash behind and buying high end next time to save myself money in the long term.

        Don’t buy anything Samsung. Shit company with bad products designed to fail after warranty expires.

        My Samsung has popped the wash bar twice but that’s it so far. It’s super easy to fix but there’s no alarm so you never realize it until you notice things on the bottom rack not getting washed.

    After watching the original video I started putting some additional powder at the bottom of the loading tray every wash and it works great. Clean dishes ever since, no pre rinse necessary. Can recommend 👍.

      The previous videos were too long for anyone who doesn’t want to obsess about this. And this one is more pragmatic about your detergent of choice and thus more palatable for people who aren’t already fans of his.

      It’s also takes him less time to make videos like this according to the messages on his patreon.

      Personally I’m a fan of him remaking some videos like this. I can get my family to watch this a lot easier.

        This one is still quite long

        I wished he made his videos closer to the 20min mark

        I’ll probably still watch it, but at almost 30mins it might take me some days to start it.

        It’s just a tips and how-to on how to make your dishwasher work best. Run the sink tap until hot before you start, use cheap powder or gel soap, make sure to use the dispenser and use a bit of soap in the prewash cycle. Great channel though, very deep dives into technology, primarily home goods or oddities.

    And in Germany we don’t have those without filters.

    On the other hand, we have 230V and our dish washers’s sump only have half the sump size at most, they heat up the water in no time, even if it’s cold to start with. So we’ve got that going for us which is nice.

    Does Technology Connections sell shirts? In most of his recent videos he has worn a black shirt with zoomed in RGB pixels from a digital display and I’ve been looking for it everywhere because I work in a related industry.

      I just googled “BASF T-Shirt” and immediately found the one he is wearing in this video (and he wear it in a couple of other videos recently)

        Thanks, I think the RGB shirt might be custom to him because the same image is his YouTube channel’s profile header image.
