Things you should not put in the dishwasher

Dishwashers in need of repair can lead to some aggravation when they do not work correctly, let's get that thing twirling or draining again and keep your hands dry.

Cast Iron: Cast iron requires a little more attention and care than your other pots and pans and shouldn't be put in the dishwasher. 
Good Knives: Your good knives dull quicker when put in the dishwasher. Instead, hand-wash your knives and dry with a tea towel. 
Crystal: This is an obvious one. Dishwasher detergent and heat can potentially chip or crack fine crystal. Don't risk ruining your very expensive and precious items, and just hand-wash 'em instead.
Wooden Utensils: Some wooden items can go in the dishwasher, but it's best to check with the manufacturer first (if possible). You risk having the wood warp or lose its finish.
Nonstick Pans: Again, it's best to check with the manufacturer to see if your nonstick can be put in the dishwasher. But in case you don't know the brand or want to be super careful, nonstick is best to hand-wash. You risk the pan losing its non-stick quality.
Copper Pans: You risk changing the colour of these gorgeous pans by putting them in the dishwasher.
Soft and Hard Plastic: Some harder plastics can be put in the dishwasher if the manufacturer says it's OK; just make sure to put them on the top rack.
Disposable Aluminum: You risk getting black residue or marks all over the aluminum item and the other things in the dishwasher.
Gold-Plated Dishware: The dishwasher can potentially eat away at the gold. It's better to avoid ruining your plates or silverware and simply wash these items by hand.
Insulated Mugs: I've definitely put an insulated mug in the dishwasher by accident only to have the space between the outer and inner layer filled with water. Not cool.
Anything with Adhesives: Labels with glue can clog and hurt your dishwasher. It's best to either get rid of the labels before putting the item in the dishwasher (like with glass bottles), or simply wash by hand.

Dishwashers are incredibly durable machines. They can take years of daily use. In many cases, it's only a change in decor that brings about a replacement. Of course that doesn't mean things never go wrong with them. From time to time a motor may go bad here or a leaky dishwasher hose shows up there. But all in all, the dishwasher is an ingenious appliance that uses both electricity and water to give us years of dependable service. Some things to check before you call for a dishwasher repair in the calgary area would be the filter, make sure its clean and also if your having a run error on your dishwasher try resetting the breaker for 5 mins and turning your machine back on. These two simple tricks could save you on a call out.
