But, if you want to make most out of dishwasher and get cleaner dishes, there are few tricks for loading the dishwasher. Careful placement and good dishwasher detergent produce cleaner dishes and saves time. Here are basic steps for loading the dishwasher with video.
Step 1:
Rinse Your dishes lightly before loading them into the dishwasher. Remove any food scrapes over the plate. If loaded plates with scrapes, it may choke up your dishwasher.

Step 2
Plates and bowls should be loaded in the bottom rack. So stand them between the pegs to get efficient cleaning. Place dishwasher-safe pots and pans on the bottom rack facing down.

Step 3:
Place Glasswares (Cups, Glasses) and dishwasher safe plastic containers on the top rack. Put them in upside down position. Do not put them on the bottom rack, as the heat generated at bottom rack is very high and it could cause to break glassware.

Step 4:
Place Silverware in the plastic basket. Sharp utensils like knives should be pointing down and handle facing out. Mix all the utensils (spoon, forks), otherwise they will get stick together and may not get clean. Avoid loading good quality knives in the dishwasher as it could get damaged.

Step 5
Add detergent, close the door, select the cycle and start the dishwasher.

Cups go between prongs, not on prongs. If you put them on the prongs, you lose half of the space on the top rack, as one cup will take up two rows. Cups and glasses are in fact meant to go in the "valleys" between the two lines of prongs. Dishwashers have separators on the bottom of the rack that should prevent them from coming into contact with the glasses next to them. Separators are long metal rods going from left to right that protrude up in the "valleys" between the prongs. Every few inches from the front to the back of the rack, there should be another long left-to-right separator. This provides spaces for 5 to 10 glasses along to be placed in the "valley."
