Stop your dishwasher when it goes into drying mode.

Angela Kim Dec 8, 2010

We use the dishwasher a lot and most of them don’t do much of the drying in the drying cycle but use a lot of energy. I generally stop it when it is done with washing and then open it and let the air dry them out.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you.
