    Dishwasher Recommendations ?

    My GE Profile has finally got enough things wrong with it, that I want to get rid of it. It's about 10 years old. I have been "underwhelmed" with the Profile.

    Stainless front preferable. Not sure of current prices, but it can't be "Super Record" or "Dura-Ace" priced.
    Maybe "Centaur" or "105"

    Thoughts ??

    When my Whirlpool dishwasher broke down last year, after 15 years of service, I went with a Maytag unit from Lowe's. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Lowe's had the best deal on the dishwasher and installation. I had heretofore bought all my appliances from Sears. It has worked flawlessly since, and the installation was top notch.

    My Sears Kenmore was apparently made by Whirlpool, and it has been going strong for over 12 years, and surprisingly performs better than the Bosch in my office, at half the price. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

    I've had Maytag and Whirlpool with the latest being a LG. I love it, so quiet you have to listen closely to hear it running.

    I just got a cheapie in my place, but my parents just installed a new Bosch with a stainless exterior and interior. It's the bees knees, even standing next to it, I can't tell that it is running, it is that quiet!

    Yes! Bosch is my favourite. Very quiet, low vibrations, doesn't shake the floor or countertop. And very efficient with power and water too.

    We moved last year and the new house has an LG. I'm blown away by how quiet it is. I don't know how old it is but it does have two things wrong with it...the Rinse Aid compartment leaks and won't hold the liquid for more than a few days...and I just noticed the upper rack has a few spots where the plastic coating has come off and the metal is rusting. Researching how much new racks cost.

    We've had amazing luck (knock wood) with our Kenmore Elite. It's over 10 years old and does a great job. The thing I like best about it though, is how quiet it is.

    Left and right. Nearly fifty years of reliable operation. And quiet as a mouse.

    Sugru ! Moldable air cure rubber is great for fixing this especially on the ends of the tines! Sugru Not posting an ad ! I love this stuff and carry some in my touring toolkit, just a huge fan of this stuff.

    Our old whirlpool is so lame that you basically have to wash the dishes before putting them into the dishwasher.

    Do not hire this guy. He will quit in mid shift and leave you with a stack of dirty dishes.

    OMG! My wife LOVES this stuff...and that was her response also when I showed her the rust! She's used it on a few things around the house...like all the power cords for the I-devices are now reinforced with sugru. As a matter of fact...the key to my car had broken...the key ring hole was completely busted off. I repaired it with sugru, poked a hole in it and it's still holding a year later!

    That's just wrong. Put the dishes on the floor where he can clean them properly.

    Very disappointed with the Bosch. Had a fatal board error after a couple of years, replaced the board and the impeller motor and the thing died within a year. We thought about getting another Bosch- because it's all "bling" and stuff... we went with Kitchen Aid- and I couldn't be happier.

    Did that and she insisted on the bosch.

    Can confirm it's very quiet, although the addition of dampening material during installation does help with any dishwasher. Haven't had any issues with ours.

    Bought my son a Bosch - he loves it. I recently installed a Maytag with the stainless steel interior. Very quiet, does a great job washing. Whatever you settle on, though, check for available service before you buy - I live in a very rural area and have been left up the creek without repairpersons.. So, I stick to the Maytag/Whirlpool lines, as I have a local certified repairman - he also just got certified for LG, so I can add that brand to my list. Samsung - while lovely appliances - has NO repair available, unless I plan to wait 2 or 3 weeks.........
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    I got a Bosch from Lowes not too long ago. They were much cheaper all around than Sears. I love the quietness of the Bosch (sometimes we think my daughter has left the faucet running again because that's the most noise we get. A downside of the lack of noise and water usage is that it doesn't seem to have quite as much force as the 25 year old GE it replaced and sometimes odors tend to linger in it a bit more. Also, the old one used a ton of water so it wasn't as sensitive if something else was using water as well because a lot of water still went into it. The low water of the current Bosch means that it doesn't affect the heat of our shower as much, but doing laundry while running the dishwasher means the flow to the dishwasher gets reduced enough that dishes don't get clean. The fancy timer lets us only run the dishwasher at night which solves that problem mostly, but I was surprised to see it. I'm sure I'll have similar complaints when I replace a broken 25 year old toilet with a current one.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
