    Within the last two years I have two family members that bought new high end dishwashers and both went with brands other than Bosch. Both regret not getting another Bosch.

    Had a Bosch, it was replaced sooner than I thought it should be. Can't remember the issue with it, but the Maytag that replaced it is a better machine all the way around and cost about $700 4-5 years ago. So quiet, I am never sure it is running unless I am next to it and I am always surprised by how good it cleans the dishes.

    Looks similar to this one: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Maytag-2...9SKZ/312290940

    We have a high end KitchenAid that works great and is dead quiet. But, in 5 years of ownership, Iíve replaced two pumps, the heating element, something else I canít remember, and recently the water valve which sprung a pinhole leak, ruining part of my kitchen floor. My main takeaway has been that the major brands all use the same or very similar parts, so among those, it doesnít matter, theyíre all going to be a crapshoot and any reliability ratings are dubious.

    My experience with a Samsung washer and dryer has been similar as far as parts shitting the bed, and given their and LGís track record vs Bosch and Miele, it makes my next DW purchase a no-brainer (aka, Iím getting a fucking Bosch).
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    sometimes the door on my kitchen aid pops open in mid cycle I discovered that wedging a bar stool under the handle keeps the door latched and the unit works perfectly,

    I could easily afford another DW/ clothes washer/ dryer but with all the problems you dentists have on the new tech of appliances I would rather just use google search and fix the old stuff so for >12 yrs i havent bought any new appliances in 2 units

    There was a Golden Age of household appliances. Now we're in the Dark Ages. Maybe time for the economists to stop referring to them as "durable goods".

    yup 20-30 yr old appliances are pretty easy to fix and keep running forever

    easier than cash register or an ATM

    Cars were once planned obsolescence, seems like now appliances are using that market tactic. We still have a 1980 era dishwasher that is noisy but still cleans plates like a champ

    I've got a Westinghouse fridge in my shop. It was here when I bought the place. Thing has an ice cap on the inside below the freezer compartment that is 6inches thick in the center (less towards the sides). The ice has totally engulfed the lightblub but it still works. I have to use tarp straps to keep the door shut but it's still run and man does it keep things cold. I'm willing to bet it's 40yrs old.

    It's like VW bugs. You could fix them with anything. My GF was driving home from WSU and her fuel filter started to fail. She fixed it with a tampon and made it back to Seattle.

    My brother has an appliance repair company. He recommends LG and Bosch stuff for the high end of the mid/low end stuff. Probably getting a Bosch dw soon. The one that came with our house that we've been limping along for 10 years is junk. It is a GE. It just keeps working, but it has never worked well. Dishes are rarely clean on first shot.

    I picked up an expensive Bosch from a canceled special order that took too long at Lowes. We have only had it a year but I would pay full price for how quite and how well it works. That being said I am pretty stoked I haggled $600 off the price tag. The washer it replaced was less than $600 new and went to shit in 2 years but we used it for 3.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Yup, absolute shit. Tossed a dishwasher from them which was garbage and their range is pretty poor.

    2 things are very important hot water & good soap, IME those Finish pods work great, check that the wands are not split & the plenums to the wand have no holes

    buying a new DW does not mean you will get to clean ddish heaven

    but the bigger question is what kind of a brother were you if you can't get free service on an appliance ?

    I also have a KitchenAid and have zero complaints so far. So quiet I've opened it a few times not knowing it was running. We've probably had it 6-7 years now.
