However, thank you for posting this video.

I've seen this machine before and spoken to one of my sales guys at the local mom and pop appliance store back home, he told me that this dishwasher is completely new. It's not made by Asko! He said that Viking decided the Asko badged machines weren't good enough and decided to try their hand at designing and making their own dishwashers. The motor for the main wash pump is quite large actually. They had a motor out on top to display the size of it and I had to take a pic I was so impressed!

Is this machine a full 24" deep I can't stand all the over priced Asko, Bosch and Mele dishwashers that are so small inside. Now if they could also get rid of the stinky, unsanitary, slimy, crusty filters they may have something worth considering.

Made by Viking - not a rebadge.  I would imagine they have sourced components from all over, as all d/w makers do.  IIRC, this is a 24" deep dishwasher, John.  We poked and prodded one at our local store here over new years.  Interesting machine for sure.  I really wonder what will come of that filter cleaning system they show in the video with the non-phosphate detergents and very hard water like we have here.  14-20 grains will do a quick number on that.  You can see the water spots on the tank in the display model already.

1/2 horsepower motor

The "new" Vikings have 1/2 horsepower motor and flow thru water heating system. I would consider one, consumer reports gave it a mid range rating but likely based on using the normal cycle.
