      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Would have bought a different one if I knew this then.

      I have had this dishwasher for at least five years now, and although it still works reasonably well, it is not as good as it was when it was new. It is very easy to load and unload, with two trays which pull out seperately. The cutlery tray also lifts out seperately but the blue plastic handle on this broke off some years ago. The door swings downwards 90 degrees and is not at all heavy. It also clicks back into place easily. There are six different wash cycles: Normal, Intensive, Glasses, Quick-wash, Pre-rinse and Eco-normal. I usually use the eco-normal and find it no different to the Normal wash, except that obviously I am doing my bit for the environment (although I am sure washing up the old fashioned way would probably be more 'friendly' and cost me slightly less in electricity - having said that this is a AAA rated machine.) The dishwasher is started by a simple push button and the other button on the from of the door is so that you can set the wash for either just the top or just the bottom drawer. Lights across the top tell you which part of the wash cycle the machine is on and when to replace salt. There is a count down display for when the machine is in its drying cycle. I find it slightly irritating that it doesn't count down the whole process. Now for the reliability - it is fairly rubbish. It washed fantastically for about the first year. Then we noticed that several things had to go back through even though they were not very dirty when they first went in. Several times my husband has had to take the spinny-water-shooter arm thing (sorry - I'm not that technical) out and clean it because it has become clogged up. On other occassions the pipe at the back has needed cleaning out as it tends to flood the bottom of the machine. It now washes only adequately with cups often coming out with those horrible little bits in that weren't in the cups before they went into the machine. In fact, if my husband weren't that technically minded, I suspect that we might have chucked it out and bought a new one years ago.
