    Default WWYD - fix dishwasher or get a new one

    My 7yo dishwasher is leaking water underneath. Not a huge amount but enough to dampen a towel. Do I get someone to look at it? Probably cost $150 just for someone to look or do I just buy another one? I wish it was a couple years older and the choice would be easier, or is 7 years a reasonable run?

    Have you googled the model and issue? Might be an easy fix

    Googled and it could be hose, could be pump (and of course could be neither). I hate this stuff! I does an ok job - it's a midrange dishlex.

    When this happened to us we bought a new one for $500. Figure it would cost about that to get it looked at and fixed anyway

    Can you still get the parts? I'd be leaning towards a new one, the charge to come out and look then parts and labour may make it too expensive to fix.

    Hose is dry so it's something inside. I've decided to buy a new one - recommendations for a dishwasher up to $1000 please!

    Just don't buy an Omega.
    We recently bought one, and it barely washes the dishes! I put things through several times just to get them "vaguely" clean.

    I love my Bosch, hasn't skipped a beat in about 6 years. It was a grand though. My advice is if you can afford the grand, spend that. Dishwashers seem to be an appliance that breaks down a lot and personally I'd stay clear of the cheap ones. They tend to be smaller too. Having said that, of course the cheapies can run for ages and the dear ones can sh*t themselves a year in so sometimes it's pot luck.

    That's exactly what I'm looking at: Bosch SMS50M22AU Dishwasher.
    $908 from appliances online. Annoyingly I got back on Wednesday from a very expensive 10 day holiday in Thailand so bad timing - but isn't it always.
