    $500 for a new, stainless steel dishwasher? Good luck.
    How many years of disposable paper plates can you get for $500?
    If it’s more than 2 years—the average life of a new dishwasher—do the paper plates method.

      Ha you can tell i've never owned one. 2 years?

      Made me think about how mom would have dish 'sets'. Then the dishwasher offered convenience. But anyone I know of nowendays has a mixed array of bowls and such, picked up from yard sales or thrift stores. They might have a set in a cabinet, but those will be carefully hand-washed and put away.

      The modern recyclable plates or whatnot, are a huge improvement over 'paper plates'. When you're done, that trash can be compacted/burned. e.g. The bowls I have are commercial quality. Some kind of highly compressed cellulite. Whereas 'paper plates' are just paperboard with a coating. Basically anything you get in a grocery store, is trash.

      Wtf shit dishwashers do you buy? I spent €450 on a small electrolux bench model 9 years ago. It was pricey but it's worked flawlessly every single day since. You sort of get what you pay for. And don't foget to add salt to it especially if your water is hard.

        My new one is a whirlpool.
        My old one was $120, new in 2001, i think it was a frigidaire. So the price roughly doubles every 10 years, and the performance and longevity gets halved every 10 years.
        My father has gone through 3 dishwashers in 5 years with various problems, and one thing none of them did very well was clean anything. On one the display went out, and the most recent one, it looks like the electronics package went out. In both cases I suspect steam/moisture killed them.
        The displays in their LG washer and dryer are also dead, but they still work again, they’re too stupid to make appliances that use water moisture proof.

        > add salt

        that's a pretty cheap model on sale though. the white and black ones have the same msrp anyway
        supposedly it has a better system for debris in the sump which is my problem with dishwashers in general the water is either dirty, or there is a clogged up filter

        Clogged filter

        My dishwaher is always brand-new clean, I wash everything by hand first.

        I’ve used TSP, salt, citric acid and multiple types of liquid, pods, powder, and run it through the cycles multiple times.

        It’s the spray. It’s so anemic, like that go-pro guy’s video, that if I wet a small square of paper towel and put it on the surface of any plates or cups, it will still be there after the cycle.

        I’ve become a dishwasheroligist with all the time I’ve spent on this stupid thing.

          Hard water is water with a high content of limestone. Salt helps with this issue. https://www.wikihow.com/Use-Dishwasher-Salt

            UK-ian’s dishwashers have a built in water softener?? Holy shit.
            Here we only have “jet-dry” which is some kind of chemical that reduces surface tension to reduce spots.
            You can get a whole-house water softener for $5k + maintenance and consumables costs.

              What clusterfrick of a country are you in? Here in the US it is $400-600 for the water softener and less than an hour of basic pipe fitting work that any moron can do. Don't even need to sweat pipes any more with slip-on fittings.

        I’m not a chick, I DGAF what it looks like.
        I’d buy one that has a clear plastic front if they made them.
        I only care if it can wash dishes, and I haven’t found one that’s even half as good as my old absolute-bottom-of-the-barrel, builders grade that I had before it died after 20 years.
        The new ones all have multiple dinky little pump motors in them. My old one had one big fricking motor/pump in the middle that did everything.
        The only thing modern dishwashers are really adequate at is that it gets hot enough to sterilize everything. I wash everything by hand before it goes into the dishwasher now, and just store/sterilize them in there.

        Here’s the guy that put the gopro in his “best dishwasher of 2021” — my piss stream is three times stronger than than that flaccid, impotent piece of shit dishwasher, and all dishwashers are basically the same now.

    Find a source that sells the parts from broken machines instead of buying oem replacements if possible. Much cheaper but unfortunately increasingly not an option. the market for people who repair shit is dwindling so those kind of parts resellers are going out of business or shifting to just scrapping appliances for bulk metal value as it’s increasingly not worth the effort to list 500,000 ebay auctions for “samsung dishwasher part 907323949”
