If you could have your choice of any current AMERICAN made dishwasher......what model would you choose?

A few years ago when the kitchen got remodeled I selected an Amana tall tub and have been very happy with it. Prior to that I had a Sears portable dishwasher. For the remodel I selected Amana for fridge, dish washer and microwave. Jennair dual fuel for range and Whirlpool Duet for washer/dryer. In the picture you see Woody Woodward assisting with the prewash cycle.

my choices for new DW

Whirlpool Gold model GU3600XTV or Kenmore Elite model 1394. I prefer the Whirlpool brand, but like the new look of the KM Elite consoles as well as the LED display. Both look to have the same wash system.

We just bought a KitchenAid all electronic with the stainless steel tub.  It is not as solid as an older KA but even though it takes 2 hours, everything has come out clean.  It ran about 1000 but my brother ordered it for about 700.  It is very quiet.  Mostly I wanted the KitchenAid logo on the front.  It is just a stainless steel panel with a handle, with a little blue/red/green light at the corner and the controls on the edge.

My sister in law has a KitchenAid Superba that is very recent. Very quiet machine and cleans up a storm. If I was in the market and had it in my head that I wanted an American made machine that would be it. But I am not, and since I have a Miele dishwasher its kinda hard to go back to an American machine. So I would agree to what Pete said.

Kenmore Standard Tub Ultra Wash..There still in stock and you can find them..That is a very powerful wash system in that dishwasher.Those Tall Tub Maytag the Jetclean 2 had a very powerful wash also,I fixed my brothers three days ago and took my Plexiglas and was shocked at the spray power of it after I fixed it..That tall tub dishwasher motor is 1/3 H.P. also and draws 2.2Amps. I have a G.E. Monogram and it is O.K. nothing great and not worth 1200 bucks..I wish that Miele,Bosch, would put grinders in there machine cause I hate filters...

Since we have always had the best of luck with Maytag dishwashers, I'll have to say another Maytag.

For kimball455

I am not that interested in the Amana (well, if it needs assistance with the prewash cycle...) but can I vote for Woody Woodward? It's a very, very cute cat

The GE GLD4400s are my absolute favorite. No pre rinsing, no return to be rewashed dishes and sparkling glasses. I use Finish tabs and always press the sanitize buttons. very quiet too.

for me it owuld be a KitchenAid KUDS30CXBL.  Still has a grinder in it and not a filter and a decent display and control panel.

You should never wash your kitty in the dishwasher.  The fur will clog the pump and stick to the glasses.
