Faire le ménage ou faire du ménage ou les deux ?

Faire le ménage ou faire du ménage ou les deux ?

I understand that « faire le ménage » is an expression, but cannot see why « faire du ménage » would be grammatically incorrect. Only « faire le ménage » is accepted in the exercise. Both are noted in wordreference.

Isn't this the same as both « faire les courses » and « faire des courses » being acceptable, depending on context ?
