    I have an omega with a cutlery drawer. Love it to pieces but the racks for the plates seem to bend very easily.

    So I'm a little conflicted, I love ours, but am not hearing good reports of late. The repair bloke said he'd buy a Meile or Asko as his first choice but if they are out the price range then he'd go an LG direct drive.
    I've actually heard that too from a repair man, but considering they are the top selling dish washer it makes sense to me that there are more repairs as there are heaps more units in existence!

    Old one was an lg. Good model, noisy though. We had it nearly 8yrs. It was about $800 new and our new bosch retails for $2000 new (paid $1400). I think the price dictates quality and performance.

    Hi Nafsika, I have a cheap and cheerful Dishlex DX103. it was less than $500 from memory. It has a great 35 minute cycle its the only cycle I use, as I am often emptying and restacking several loads a day.

    Default Good dishwasher please

    Mine has rust stains too! Most likely a reflection of my housekeeping skills!
    But if you want to get them off, use some Jif on an old stocking, worked for mine (although that was a while ago and they have come back).
    I'm going against the grain here, don't love my Bosch, now that it is out of warranty it has started playing up, won't pump the water out, error messages whenever you start a new cycle. Also my Bosch washing machine died recently, it was only about 5 years old.

    LG here and it's pretty good.

    I did loads of research though and Bosch are the best for middle of the range money but not all Boschs are made equal. The cheaper sub $1000 Boschs are made in Thailand. You'll know them as the internals and base is plastic ie where the drainage basket is. The more expensive and reliable ones are made in Germany and have a metal base.

    I like our lg as it has a 10 warranty on the motor and is really quiet.

    Btw the reason I got the lg after doing all the research was my dishwasher died at Christmas and I needed a new one. The Bosch I wanted had ac3 wks wait and the lg was on sale and in stock.

    I have a f&p dishdrawer (3rd one because we have lived in 3 different houses) and I love it. I hate the big open cavernous single dishwashers. Plus I can do smaller loads particularly when DH is not home.

    My Bosch has a metal base and is still a piece of cr@p!
