A D&M with the "Total Magic Wash" cycle button.

Nice!

The Chambers is similar to this, with the "Total Butt-kicking" button.

Assessing D&M dishwashers in terms of performance and reliability is a matter of degree. If you luck into one that's pristine, has good and intact racks and porcelain, and you don't throw olive pits and leftover pea gravel into the unit--taking care to safeguard the impellers and, by extension, the carbon-porcelain seal--you may very well have a great unit on your hands. Like GEs, D&Ms perform via the serial dilution effected through many water changes.

Of course, we've been down this road many times discussion-wise, and there are people who will tell you that their D&M bit their daughter, traumatized the dog, vomited pea soup, peeled the paint from the walls, peed on the floor, and caused their property taxes to go up, all the while leaving a thin coating of unshifted food debris and locusts all over their dishes.

Your mileage may vary.

LoL @ Nate.  Or if it was your families first experience with automatic dishwashing it was bliss and at a bargain price. It is true with heavy family use they lasted 8 to 10 years.

Thank you all. :-) I love writing here.

I actually really enjoy the discussions we get into on this site; I think the diversity of experience (and assessments of diverse designs that don't exist nearly to the degree that they used to) is fascinating, and almost embodies a reporting and testing mechanism that stretches far beyond the reach of Some Consumer Publications. *cough*

It's thanks to this site that I've had the pleasure of using machines I'd previously never encountered, and even developed a much broader sense of aesthetics. It's a great place to be. (And thank you for it, Robert.)

Am forwarding you a bill to cover the purchase of a new laptop as our previous was harmed due to leffing so hard at your post morning coffee was spilled upon it.

We appreciate your prompt attention to this matter!
