Who just bought a dishwasher

I think there was a thread about this a few weeks back. (Broken appliances seem to be a theme this summer.)

What brand do you recommend?

I did a few months ago. We bought a Whirlpool. It was super quiet. I've moved and the one in the rental house is AWFUL!!!!!!!! I can't wait until the new house. It will have this model as well.

But I feel like that was not the price we paid at all.

Oh I like that one. I prefer the silverware tray in the door. Might go look at that one. Thanks.

Ok. I know why we didn’t pay that much- we did not get the one Wifi enabled to work with an app. We got the model down, still 3 racks, stainless steel inside and out.

I mean... do people really need to turn on a dishwasher remotely?

I bought a stainless Whirlpool similar to techgrad in Sept that has the silverware tray in the door. It's so quiet I had to actually out my ear to the door to see if I turned it on, then realized there is a small light in the top corner that shows the cycles. We got it at lowes.

Am I the only one who despises having the silverware tray on the door?

Mine has it in the bottom rack, but my mother's last couple have had it on the door and it drives me nuts. She LOVES it! I just don't get it. Every time I want to put silverware in, I have to push the bottom rack in, and I just find the whole thing awkward!

We have a Bosch and I don't recommend it. They do not have a drying feature. It's quiet (why we bought it) but I think there are other brands that are just as quiet and will dry your dishes.

I think this is the one I got. I didn’t do a ton of DW research (I did for the fridge), but I like it. It has a 3rd rack which is handy, though I like standing the silverware in the bottom baskets. It’s very quiet, but I’m hard of hearing (I also put my ear next to it the first time I ran it). It dries the dishes beautifully, but the cycle is pretty long; fine if you run it at night.

In the past I had a KitchenAid I loved, a Bosch I hated, and a GE that was great. Good luck.

ETA: I probably should have said....
*I hated the Bosch, which was here when I moved in, because my clean dishes were wet and because the racks were rusted out.
*The old KitchenAid and GE models were sturdy workhorses for me, but they weren’t quiet like the new one.
*Honestly, I care about appearance (I love the controls in the top of the door where I don’t see them) and the way the racks are set up. I don’t want fancy, I just want clean dishes from a reliable dishwasher.

the Boch does not have a dry cycle. We asked two different friends who own two different appliances stores what dishwasher they would recommended both said Boch as first choice. That is what I bought. I love it. It is very quiet and does a great job cleaning dishes. It does not have a dry cycle, the benefit is that it uses less electricity. We turn it on before going to bed. In the am the dishes are completely dry. So, for us it is not a problem. If you have a large family and need to do several loads one after another, then it could be a downside.

Bosch —

What Chipmonkey said — I have never noticed that ‘not having a dry cycle’ being a problem at all.

We put our Bosch in after a kitchen remodel — about 4 years ago — and have had zero problems with it.

I love my Bosch. It doesn’t have a dry cycle so no worries about putting in plastic on the bottom. Charlotte try using the auto and sanitize buttons. Also, don’t open it too soon. Like Chipmunky, I keep it closed until the morning. I really like the top rack for silverware.

I love my Kitchen Aid

I had the same one from 1995 to 2017? (I think) and it was GREAT! A little noisy but not terrible.

When I replaced it with another, I went back to Kitchen Aid and it is super quiet. It has the third rack, silverware in the bottom rack, drying if you want it... I haven't had any issues.

I used to love Bosch. My stove top/oven was a Bosch and really, really liked it, until the computer panel died. It was going to cost more than the price of a new stove to fix it. All parts come from Germany and they are expensive.

We have a very very quiet Kenmore with the controls hiding on the top of the door. This dishwasher is a workhorse and has been for several years.
