Sadly, I wasn't abled to catch pre-wash pics. But though this means it won't get a qualification, but I though might be fun to ask if the load size would be qualifiable.

Part of the load sat for about 36 hours, part of the load was freshly soiled; all with average day to day soil such as coffee, tea, some sauce, ketchup, mayo, raw egg and bread crumbs from todays "Wiener Schnitzel". There were a lot of herbs and especially parsley from several salads, especially in those bowls.

Sadly, the Auto cycle cancelled the prewash, so I was left with a 90 minute cycle, with wash at 130F, rinse, heated rinse at 150F and a 20min dry. That left some really tiny bits of green stuff stuck in the tight corners where some items touched. But they all fell right of during unloading. There was a random bit of something on the bottom of the tub.

Now that I wrote that, I can't remember the DW running its full Auto cycle since November.

Indeed, about 4 years old I think... Last before they redesigned them.

My first real BobLoad!

We've had this GE dishwasher for almost 3 years now and this the first load that I truly thought was BobLoad worthy.  What do you guys think?  It's a Model GDF520PGD2CC.  Sorry for the lousy lighting.

This load was washed on the normal cycle (approx. 117 minutes) using Melaleuca Diamond Brite dishwasher gel, and 1 tsp. of STPP for an added boost.
