$900 down the drain- and that's the only thing down the drain since the food is still on my dishes

Summary: Unlike most everyone else, I haven't had an error code on this dishwasher. It just keeps plugging along without actually getting anything off of the dishes. In the first year I had this machine, I had the technician out 5 times to fix various things. They even replaced the whole upper arm assembly because it gets stuck on itself and doesn't spin. But, it never fixed the problem! It still does the same thing! The unclean dishes are not confined to the top rack.
Summary: One more negative review to add to the long list. This washer was recommended to us at Lowes as a high end highly durable diswhasher. It doesn't was dishes very well (we need to pre-wash everything), a leaking tube was very difficult to replace (poor design), and after about 3 years it stopped working entirely (all control lights flashing). We decided that it was not worth the money to try to have it repaired. This was our first and last Electrolux appliance.
Excerpt: I haven't had this unit very long yet but among the many nice features is the blue floor light indicator for when the cycle is complete. I wasn't aware this existed when I purchased the unit and there it was... it is so cool! Everybody loves it. The unit is very quiet and does a great job with the dishes even with our hard well water.
Excerpt: LOVE LOVE LOVE our dishwasher! It is so quiet that I forget it's even on sometimes. Love being able to relax and watch some TV with the dishwasher running, without having to turn the volume way up.
Summary: Just wanted to help everyone with the common error 1 code. We bought our dishwasher used from someone that had had enough and I figured I'd try to fix it. What I did was lift the dishwasher on small cement blocks with the lower catch panel removed from the bottom and ran a cycle so that I could see if it was actually leaking. Sure enough the dishwasher was detecting a small leak. It was the fill valve. 20 dollar part.
Excerpt: This is absolutely the WORST appliance I have ever owned. I should have listened to the awful reviews before I purchased it. I have had the repairman to my house 12 times for this dishwasher in the past year. I now have him on my speed dial. Did I mention that my dishwasher is only 2 years old? What a complete waste of money and time. RUN, do not walk, away from this appliance.
Excerpt: This Dishwasher looks great. The stainless is easy to keep clean and the controls are also easy to use. The inside looks as good as the outside and is very versatile in respect to dish placement. Okay, the key word was looks good. Otherwise this dishwasher does not clean your dishes. They must be completely clean before loading or it will leave a dry film on everything. The soap dispenser is always 1/4 filled with leftover detergent.
Excerpt: I have had my dishwasher about 2 years and this is the 2nd time it has broken for the same code. With the cost of this dishwasher I would expect it to work longer then 2 yrs without breaking. It is frustrating when you load it up only to find out you have to hand wash everything!!! It's kinda expensive to use as a drying rack.
