OT: Dishwasher Died - Looking for Opinions

Hello everyone -

My dishwasher seems to be dead and after 15 years I'm not going to try to get
it fixed.  Are you happy with what you have and what kind would that be?  Are
there things you wished it had or could do?

Had a GE for 15 years.  When we relocated we decided to go with GE again but it
didn't last very long.  Since then we have had Thermador (lasted less than 2
years),  Whirlpool (had it for a few years), Kitchenaid (basic model with not
enough insulation - very noisy) and now have another Whirlpool.  Picked this
brand because the wood stained panel from the previous dishwasher was able to
be salvaged for the new one.  (Our family members numbered four so I guess you
could say we didn't have much luck with longevity in dishwahsers.)  We like the
new dishwasher very much.  The only drawback is the flatware bin  inside the
door which if too heavly loaded may not clean everything properly.
Fortunately, before discarding the old dishwasher I saved the removable
flatware bins and now use that in addition to the door bin.   Hope this helps.

Our dishwasher just died (right before Christmas, too!) and we bought a
Kenmore (Sears brand), since my husband works for Sears.

We're really happy with it.  They aren't nearly as expensive as the GE or
Whirlpool, and they work just as well!

I've had GE (and 4 kids) for about 15 years - one without all the
bells and whistles.

Mine died after about 20 years and I replaced it with a Maytag and I like
it.  One down side to it is that it will only hold half as many dishes as
the old Kitchenaid but it does do a very good job.  I had to get the
portable so my options were very limited.  Lavania in Indianapolis

I have possibly the stupidest dishwaher in the world. The glasses load
on the *bottom*. I can't fit a cookie sheet anywhere in this darned
thing! It came with the house, so I'm stuck with it for now. Take the
biggest thing you want to put in the dishewasher with you to the store
and try it out. Mine is also a noisy cuss, but I think there's been an
overall improvement in sound-damping recently.

Well, I have always heard that Kitchen Aids are the best.
Other than that, my Dad just bought a Whirlpool and I have never
seen dishes that turn out so sparkly and he seems to really like it.

Hmm, we must be cursed with the same bad luck, as my dishwasher died
last week, as well!  

DH went shopping for a new one...and decided that we needed to chose
between going on vacation or buying a dishwasher, and vacation won out.  
The silver lining to this is that some needed changes are happening in
my house.  The kids are pitching in more and are drying dishes.  One
complains the whole time, but does it anyway, and the other actually
talks with me and we have a nice little after-dinner talk.  It's not so
bad.

Hi,

We too have a Sears model and have been very pleased with it.  It was one of
the more expensive models--either the top of the line or second best (not
bragging but there are a lot of them, and they might not all perform the same).
 It gets lots of use every day (sometimes twice or even three times a day if
I'm baking) and is about 4 years old.  It cleans well, holds a large load of
dishes, and you don't have to scrape off everything before you load (I think
most of them do this now).  We're pleased with it and have had no problems.
