    Dishwasher is probably fried

    The dishwasher here is toast, its been running six years 5 times a week I don't blame it to much. It's an eight year old unit. I am still making sure I can't fix it but if I gotta pay someone, the total cost of the unit wouldn't be worth fixing. So I have been checking out dishwashers, I was looking for opinions from guys that have had a few. I have only used cheap builder grade dishwashers with fine results but I was wondering if the mega buck meiles and such were worth the coin. I am on my way to vacation tomorrow night so I'll be buying something tomorrow if I need to grab one so opinions are appreciated.

    Got a higher-end Maytag and a mid-line Kitchenaid. Both are more than adequate. Really comes down to silly things like rack configurations, etc. Turns out neither are that great for the chunky plates my wife likes to use (they lean over into each other so they knock around a little during the wash). Can't say any have broken yet, though. Both are a heck of a lot quieter then the previous mid-line GE that was in my house, although that one was over 15 years old when I replaced it.

    I used to like just the average Whirlpool. Had one for 15 years before It was replaced. Paid $400 for one 2 years ago for my mother for Christmas, 18 months later it was dead. No more Whirlpool. They just don't make them like they used to.

    If you can afford it, the Mieles are top notch. Very quiet and efficient.

    Whatever you get, make sure it comes with a good warranty. I hate to say it, but they just don't make ANYTHING that ****ing lasts anymore.
    We've paid decent money for these things the past 5 years or so, but everything has crapped out or needed some kind of repair/replacement after about 1.5-2 years mark.
    I swear even the really expensive "nicer" stuff is crap too.

    That's because all the gears and internal stuff is made out of plastic.

    My sister bought a pretty pricey Kitchen-Aid recently, and had problems with it immediately. Not sure what to recommend. I need one myself, and am leaning towards a mid-range Bosch.
