Thanks Myrmidon. We’ve gone through the cleaning of the sensors and filters and I am just never happy with the results. The Wife tells me that my cleaning standards are ridiculously high (I’m sure I am OCD) but even when the Bosch was new I was far from impressed.

That said, our water is well water and is ‘hard.’ We do also have a water softening system (Culligan) but I have always thought the issue with the dishwasher was partially from hard water.

Our washer/dryer is a workhorse though 😎

Ironically my Dishwasher just stopped working a few weeks ago.  I've been too lazy to get it fixed, which is an oxymoron since I've been washing everything by hand so I'm doing more work.  Too busy buying myself toys I guess.

Guess I'll look into the Bosch when I finally decide to deal with having someone out to work on it.

I actually do wash the dishes the old fashioned way and then put them in the washer!

Several years ago I bought a Samsung front loader washer which died after only 2 years of ownership.  Adding insult to injury the extended warranty I bought from Lowes took an act of God to collect on. 

Someone recommended buying an Electrolux front loader.  So I went to our local appliance store since I could not find it in the big box stores.  Had it now for 3 years and it's been running fine.  No issues other than having to maintain it through tub and filter cleanings but that is par for the course with a front loader.  I liked the washer so much that I replaced my old Maytag dryer with an Electrolux. 

My mother in law bought a new Maytag washer and a Maytag dryer about the same time we bought our Electroluxs.  Her machines have been running fine as well. 

The Maytag models she bought were about a 100 dollars cheaper then the Electrolux machines I bought.  I paid around 800 bucks each.

Wait a minute! There are SEPERATE types of washers for clothes and dishes?  :o  Seems redundant to me but, whatever you're into I guess.  ;D  We also have hard water and it's the bane of all things cleaning-related for sure.

Yup.  Got a Electrolux fridge humming away in my place right now.

Yes they do!   ;D

At first I was surprised when I heard but I took the chance based on my experience with Electrolux vacuums and my friends recommendation.

My Mom and Mother in Law swear by Electrolux - the 'Rolls Royce' of vacuums.

whatever happened to the washboard/wife thing?
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Well I guess I'm getting soft in my old age.  I felt sorry watching my wife scrub the laundry on a washboard all day long while I was playing video games on my PC.
