Am I the only one concerned about the Priceless Antique Persian Rug?

The thing is you're not gonna be in the kitchen when it's running anyway. So by the time you figure out there's a problem some damage has already occurred and you're going crazy trying to figure out what to do to stop the thing and wondering where the water and soap will go anyway.

The Priceless Antique Persian Rug is with some nice men in New Jersey who say they can fix it.

Sorry to hear about your dishwasher problems. Like Mongo, I love our Bosch dishwasher. It's extremely quiet and does a damn good job. I can only hope it doesn't break down. We recently had our kitchen floor retiled & discovered that there was no room to tile under the new dishwasher. It is now tiled into place. Any major repairs to the dishwasher are going to entail breaking tile.

We were tired of handwashing wine glasses so I took our biggest stem to Drimmers and picked the dishwasher that held it most securely. That turned out to be an Asko, which we had been eyeing anyway because it had the highest Energy Star ratings for both water and electric. Anyway, it's exceptionally quiet and does a great job cleaning. It looks good, too, for a dishwasher.

I know that in the end I'm just going to go to Drimmer's and see what they have that fits in the hole in my kitchen built-ins that this event has left.

I know you all care, but I ended up getting a near-the-bottom-of-the-line Miele.

Drimmers: what a great store.

Good luck with the new Miele.

don't you eat all your meals out? why do you need an expensive dishwasher?
