Dishwasher not working
Old 01-04-2020, 09:55 AM

The control panel on my dishwasher has been giving me problems but today it finally stopped working.
Itís 8 years old. Is it worth fixing or just buy a new one? Anyone have brands they love or hate? This one is a GE.
Any advice would be appreciated.

I would say Bosch, but not today. It won't drain, and its about 7 years old. Repair person coming Thursday. I guess they're busy!

I have my second Bosch and I like the brand. Annabel, I had the same problem with my first Bosch. It was also 7 years old. It would have cost over 300 to repair. I just bought a new one because it was fairly old and I knew something else would break in a year. The repairman said appliances today today donít last more than 7 to 9 years.

Was your Bosch problem a not draining problem? I really don't want to get a new one. Sorry if I hijacked this thread.

I am very picky about my dishwasher. It took me months to pick a new one. I had to test how heavy the door opened, that it had stainless interior and wasnít too complicated to run.
Currently, I have a Bosch that fits those requirements. Really, I donít think appliances last like they used to. If I were in your situation at eight years, I might call a repairman one time before I bought a new one.

We had to buy a new dishwasher over the summer and I'm just in love with the Bosch we purchased. It's super quiet, but what I like most is that the heating element isn't inside the tub. That means that plastic things can go in the bottom rack because they won't get too hot/melt. I also really like putting the silverware on the top/3rd rack.

Yes, it would not drain. I had to empty it by hand and then use a baster to get all the water out. I was afraid it would leak and go all over the floor. Dh tried everything to fix it. I didnít want to spend a lot to have it repaired. It made more sense to get a new one.
