So........ We may have jumped the gun running off to get a new dishwasher. When we removed our old one (which had not been cooperating in the cleaning department), we realized the intake hose was completely plugged. So. Clean that out and you have a good little (albiet homely) dishwasher. Homely because a few buttons have come off and the front door needs to be played with. But, as I said. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Bosch are excellent dishwashers and before it acted up it worked very well. (Note to self..... Have someone look at it that knows something before buying a new one :-) So. Ugly but functional anyone?
