Hi All!
Does anyone know how good the newer ones are? Are they built by Bosch?

We have one of thoese up at the Farm.Well it was my Mamaw's she redid here whole Kitchen before she passed away so Its my Moms Now.I HATE IT and also my Sister's Smeg D.W. I can't stand a dishwasher without a grinder in it and having to empty a Filter.Yes its very quite and it does wash but can't hold a candle to the Old Thermador's from the Wasteking.Yes it looks like a Bosch from what I have seen but I have never used a Bosch dishwasher but its has the same wash arms as them.I Never rinse dishes or scrape them I just shake out the huge things and throw them in there.I can't do that with any Europe dishwasher I have totaly clog that machine over and over.The Kenmore Powerclean thats in here I can dump whole food in it and its gone and the dishes are spotless and NO Filter to clean.Its had some problems also water-valve's(Well Water)and motor seals.My Kenmore is the standard tub one NOT the tall it's the best Whirlpool design they have ever had.Its loud and blows dishes around and very powerful and works great but I have a feeling wont be around much longer.They are going to all Energy Star machines which take all day to wash.

Powercleans are impressive!

I don't have to remind anyone where my brand loyalty lies as far as dishwashers are concerned, but I do have a DU950 WP in the garage for overflow and sometimes complete cycles and I too have to admit that the power clean module does a great job on just about everything. If you use the high temp scour option, dirt doesn't stand a chance.

Volsboy, what series of Superbas are you looking for? I really do need to clean out the garage so maybe I have something you might like!
Let me know.
