Who makes a quality dishwasher these days???

Default Who makes a quality dishwasher these days???

Our Kenmore dishwasher pump started making lots of noise last night, so I guess it's time to replace the it (will cost ~$200 to repair, original cost was ~$300)

We purchased Samsung fridge and oven a couple years back, which were rated high by Consumers report, and have had multiple issues with both. This is the second time I've been burned by Consumer's, so I am done with them.

I would like to keep the budget at around $500.

So, anyone have recommendations?

Default My opinion

Typically I'd say KitchenAid, but you'd be in the entry level there.
I think Maytag makes a nice one in your budget.

BTW, I won't do Kenmore. You just don't know what you are really getting.

We had a Bosch and you could not hear it running at all. The heating element went out and we replaced it with a GE profile which is okay but loud. Plus the smart dispense system plugs up if you get the wrong type of detergent.

I like the Bosch the most but it did conk out after about 5 years. We have 6 people in the household so they do get used alot.

Went out and bought a Bosch today. I ended up spending much more than I had originally budgeted. Hopefully the investment pays off with years of trouble free service.

We run our dishwasher at least once a day (large family), so I'll find out soon enough if it will hold up.

Unfortunately, I didn't have much time to research before the purchase. I am going out of town this week and didn't want to deal with the wrath of a wife who had to hand wash dishes everyday when I returned home.

I agree that Bosch is best,,,,,,,,,and super quiet. Do some pricing on the net and you will turn up some good deals. Dishwashers are easy to install.

BOSCH

The best D.W. we ever had. Cleans like none other we ever had. It's not only quiet, you can't hear it running.

My 2yo Kitchen-Aide Sucked. When we renovated our kitchen I went with all GE Profile and this DW does a great job.

lots of Bosch fans - had one. Ever try to get it serviced? It was 10 years ago, there were not any qualified service reps within a hundred miles. Got to be better now. Maybe time to try them again, the GE profile is making wierd noises!

Another vote for Bosch....It replaced a Whirlpool Gold that broke 3 times in 2 years.
The reduction in noise is astounding! Expensive but worth it.

Our house came with an Asko- nice, extremely quiet, but expensive.
