Hotpoint dishwashers really had it over many other dishwashers. The front loading and separate top and bottom racks were much easier to load and access than many other machines of that era. If loaded properly, they did a decent job. Dishwashers of that era had limitations. They had either impellers, a roller spray or a spray arm to clean the dishes. Even Kitchenaid, with the spray arm at the bottom had to be loaded properly for spray to get to the top rack and clean those dishes. Machines with the spray roller in the center had to be loaded in an unusual and somewhat awkward way to let spray get to all the dishes. Most of them would do an adequate job when loaded properly according to manufacturers instructions. The cycles were so short that it didn't give enough time to really soak, clean and remove burned on or really stuck on food from the dishes or pots and pans. It was really all about the loading on dishwashers of that era and Hotpoint's design did make it easier than most along with Kitchenaid. In another 10 years things changed drastically for dishwasher design.
