    I don't know why we generate so many dirty dishes for two people, but we run a load almost every day.
    Also, we do an extraordinary amount of laundry for 2 as well.

    When we built our house we selected Miele based on experience of a friend who had one more than 20 years trouble-free.  Ours is only 3.5 yrs old but like the Bosch only the light lets you know it's running.
    We have a Miele as well.  Love it!

    Miele here. It's down to experience for us, Miele have given us less trouble than other 'premium' brands that have never lasted.

    I had a Miele dishwasher a number of years ago. I paid about $2000 for it.
    It was nothing but trouble.
    Service support was nonexistent, an alien spacecraft might as well have crashed in my kitchen.
    If you are lucky enough to live in a area that has significant market penetration of the Miele brand, your experience will likely be much better.

    I have a higher end Bosch now that has the water softener built in. The softener goes a long way to ensure the dishes are clean.

    Bosch seems to be the common theme here.  I was about to pull the trigger on one a couple months ago, but the drying style left me skeptical.  Glad to hear that people like it.   Our home’s original 12 year old buildergrade Whitlpool crapped out; which is why we had to buy a new one. It wasn’t drying at all and pissing me off.  Plus, it sounded like a freight train rolling through our kitchen when it ran.  Cleaned like crazy...  wet dishes when it was done.  

    Having had high end units in the past, I didn’t want expensive or a lot on features we wouldn’t use.  We sterilize “almost clean” dishes to begin with.  We we went with a GE for around five or six hundred installed.  Heating element doesn’t have me drying anything now.  Seems bulletproof so far.  We love it!

    I'm in the same boat.  Dishwasher is leaking water.  Problem is, previous owner of house put hardwood laminate flooring in the kitchen and I can't get to the dishwasher "legs" to lower them so I can pull it out.  I'm pretty sure it's a bad waste line, but is going to be a chore to access.

    That sucks. Nothing is ever easy at your place. You have my luck.

    I have a GE that won't open the soap compartment. Repair man says it's fine.

    The girls love how I load the dishwasher...

    Never scrape a plate!

    I can always get another dish in there!!

    im a serious dishwasher loader. The dirtier going in, the better. The soap WORKS BETTER WITH DIRTY DISHES!!!

    And silent. I heard a friend’s dishwasher going the other day and couldn’t believe they put up with that 

    BOSCH, BABY!!!
