Summary: I wasn't expecting to have to replace a $1300 Bosch 800 series dishwasher in 4 years, but the machine completely fell apart. (Filter didn't prevent glass from getting into the motor, and damaged it. Soap and rinse aid dispenser came apart. Ink wore off of all of the control buttons. Cheap plastic racks broke apart.) On day one, I put all of my glassware, which was covered with water deposits and film from its predecessor, into the Electrolux and VOILA!, sparkling again!
Excerpt: The controls are difficult, yes, it is quiet so that i never know whether it is on or off. No signal buzzer or light. Lengthnth of cycle is uncertain and manual does not help. Dishes require extensive rinsing. Who needs a DW. It just becomes a drying rack. I hae t this machine. For the money it looks good, but does not work 'good'. DO NOT BUY THIS DISHWASHER.
Excerpt: What's good: Great style, very quiet What's bad: It doesn't clean dishes. We always rinse and wipe our dishes before they go into the unit, but they still come out with food, coffee, chocolate, etc.on them. It doesn't even clean the soap our of the dispenser. We have checked our water temperature and pressure, and it is good. We have varied the amount of detergent, and changed from tablet to liquid. We cranked the rinse aid up to full blast.
Excerpt: Amazed how quiet this dishwasher is! Hard to tell it is even running! We could hear the model we replaced from the 2nd floor, but not this one. You can stand right next to it and hardly know it's running. Does a great job on the messiest loads. Nice features on the rack system. Can be arranged to accommodate anything. We are both impressed.
Summary: I have two of these very pretty machines. They look nice but work poorly. They are the most expensive machines I have purchased and yet do not work near as well as my last $600 whirlpool dishwasher. This is a new product for Electroloux and needs a lot of improvement.
