I don't think you can get this dishwasher in many places any more, and to be honest that's no great loss to the dishwashing world. My mother had this dishwasher about five years ago and it caused her no end of stress and worry. My mother's quite a stressful person anyway, for a variety of personal and private reasons, but this dishwasher almost sent her over the edge. We used to call her Stressy Sally, which I admit wasn't very nice and didn't actually make sense, since her name isn't actually Sally.
Anyway, onto the dishwasher. The main problem with it is that it doesn't really clean things, or that it does clean things but that it does this so irregularly that it's really just a bit of luck if a dish comes out cleaner than it went in. As an example, my mother used to put perfectly clean glasses in it, and they would come out covered in a white sheen that didn't look very healthy at all. Anything dirtier than a clean glass and you had no chance. It was a bit better if you put things on the top shelf, but if you put them on the bottom shelf I think the machine just ignored them. Dirty pans especially the dishwasher wouldn't even look at it, never mind clean.
I think my mother paid about £120 for it. I wouldn't pay £1.20 for it to be honest. If you're thinking of hunting it down, don't. Buy something better, and more up-to-date.
I was so excited when we bought this dishwasher two years ago. We had just bought our first house which needed a new kitchen, so decided to get a dishwasher. I'd never had one before. We bought ours from B&Q.
I have always been pretty impressed with Indesit washing machines, so thought an Indesit dishwasher would be a good bet.
I have not been impressed at all with it since we bought it, for the following reasons:
1) It actually is really useless at cleaning the dishes, especially stuff on the bottom rack. Absolutely no point putting pans on the bottom rack as they come out just as dirty as when they went in. Often, glasses come out with loads of white residue on them, which doesn't come off if you rewash them in the machine, so you have to wash them by hand.
2) The dishwasher tablets often don't come out of their holder properly during the cycle, so when it's finished its cycle, you open it up and the tablet hasn't been used, so the stuff is still dirty and needs rewashing.
3) The only cycle that ever washes stuff even remotely well is the cycle intended for REALLY dirty pots. The others I have found to be a waste of time.
Basically, it mostly serves the purpose of being a cupboard for our dirty pots and pans, so they can be kept out of sight!!!! It pretends to clean things and occasionally manages it, but so inconsistently, which makes it a waste of money and resources (bad for our pockets and the environment).
When I buy another dishwasher, I'll definitely do more research and pay a bit more for one that actually works!
