Dishwasher- need a new one!

I need a new dishwasher. I have no idea how old ours is, we've lived here 11 years and it has always been old. It's rusting away and we think something else is going on with it.

I'd like the brushed stainless steel and black look to match our stove.

Tell me what to buy or avoid. We have no clue. We would like to stay around/below the $500 mark if possible. I don't even know how much these things run!

We have a Bosch. We got it a few years ago and I don't remember how much it was. The front is all black and the inside is stainless.

I also have a Bosch and I love it. I think we paid over $650 for it. It wasn't the top of the line model but it is the best dishwasher I have ever had. It is stainless inside and out.

We just got a Whirlpool within the past month.

I was all set to get the Bosch but luckily read online reviews about it being difficult to load. I have Fiesta Ware which is a little odd shaped. I took it to the store and could only load 2 bowls at a time without them taking up all the space.

I googled how to buy a dishwasher and found sites like this. Then I went to the HHGregg website and read online reviews of the ones that I liked. That is where I bought mine. There are all price levels.

So far I like the Whirlpool I got. Very quiet and cleans the dishes. What more do you want.

I have a Maytag. Biggest piece of, um, stuff EVAH. We have had it for 5 years, have had the control panel replaced 3 times already! And it doesn't even get the dishes all that clean. If I don't scrub prior to putting dishes in, there will be fine grit stuck to everything in there. I'll never have another Maytag.

I had 'one of those Maytags' some years back and share the same sentiments!
Then I had a Kitchen Aid and I really liked that ...

I have a Whirlpool Gold Series that's been working out well. I've had it for about a year. I was going to get the Bosch, had it delivered and everything but discovered that Bosch would not fit quite right in my space. The Whirlpool is somewhat of its equivalent.

I have a Miele. We've had it for about 4-5 years and it's been fine.

This may sound crazy, but bring some dishes and silverware and stack them in the dishwasher at the store.

Our dishwasher is a 2 yr old GE. DH looked at Lowe's or Home Depot online, and ordered it and had it delivered. We've had many dishwashers, and all have been fine.

This one has the most irritating layout. You can''t stack standard cereal bowls in the center of the upper shelf. There's some fixture that hangs down that catches on them.

The silverware trays are on the far right side of the bottom shelf. At least 3 times a week, a knife or fork sticks in the gasket when we try to close the door. There's no room to move the trays to the center, or I would.

This is not crazy. I have found that a lot of the dishwasher racks are now oddly shaped and don't hold larger things.

This is what I ended up liking about the Whirlpool Gold.

The bottom rack has one "row" that is adjustable so you can fit larger, deep bowls in them. That way they can sort of still stand sideways rather than to have to place them fully upside down.

The silverware rack is attached to the outside of the lower rack and it runs across the front. It either clips on to the rack and stays standing, or it can clip on to the front door and when you open the door the silverware is lying down. It was hard to get used to at first but the beauty of it is that it doesn't take room up from your actual rack and stuff never gets caught in the door. My previous dishwasher had this problem where something would stick out through one of the openings in the silverware rack and either I couldn't get the rack to go in fully or the door would not close.

We have a Frigidaire Professional dishwasher. It is stainless inside and out.

We are hard on appliances. We killed the one in our model home in a year. Yep. Now it was a cheap one, but come one.

We got a new Bosch about two weeks ago, and I really like it so far. Stainess inside and out, and there is black around the top. The model is Ascenta, and it was close to your price at Sears. I don't know if it was on sale, DH and FiL went to get it.

We bought a new kitchen Aid dishwasher last year. This is an excellent dishwasher. Very quiet and is VERY good at cleaning the dishes. So much better than the 5 year old GE dishwasher it replaced.
