    Dishwasher

    Any recommendations on a reasonable priced ($400-$600) dishwasher? Our 6 year old Maytag is falling apart. Would like something quiet.

    Re: Dishwasher

    Check Consumer Reports out.

    I've never had to buy one of these things. My old house had one that was probably 15 years old, but still worked great. Current place has a Kennmore that seems to be fairly new and seems to work great.

    Re: Dishwasher

    We bought a new house that has a Kenmore Elite. While I have seen other dishwashers advertise the no pre-clean, this one has actually delivered. Now it is not the loudest, but not the quietest either. The cycles are long as well, but this is the dishwasher you load up at night, turn it on, and everything is ready in the morning. It was well worth it.

    The best one to buy in that price rage is the Bosch. Sears has a couple of them.
    They are the quiestest one sold and the easiest to clean the screen. I have sold them I know. Good luck

    Bosch makes a great dishwasher. I believe they have some models around that price range. We have put them in couple of kitchen remodels we have done and people really like them.

    Didn't read down far enough to see your post. Good recommendation.

    Bosch is a good dishwasher if you have about 3 plates to wash. It is the smallest capacity of them all. The reason is apparently due to some European design they went by. They claim it works if you know how to load it properly. We don't have time to strategically do this though. But I agree it is a top line dishwasher.

    We went with a Samsung. They got into the appliance line a few years ago, but trying to make an impact now with some pretty good quality. We have been happy with it so far. Good capacity inside and rated really quiet. We hardly know it is on if it weren't for the led indicator lights on the outside. Pretty good price too at $590.

    Frigidaire products are garbage. People buy them because they are cheap, but they are terrible.

    Sure IF you buy the cheapest product they make. I however did not. The Gallery line is their more expensive better made product. I've had mine for 2 years with no issues. Additionally, my Lay-Z-Boy chair is <5 feet from my dishwasher and I barely hear it when running.

    Nothing against you but even some of those Gallery products were bad too. Some of the fridges were a face lift on a cheap Gibson.

    So do you have a product to recommend to the OP that fits his price range and desire for a quiet product?
