Our dying dishwasher has a built-in food grinder, so no way to find and clean out a food filter. As one of the current machine’s ‘features’ is that you can make a full meal out of what’s left in the bottom of the drinking glasses at the end of the cycle, this is a problem. Several attempts to have this resolved have only eliminated it briefly.
On the other hand, we would NOT remember to clean out a manual-clean filter.
Anyone have one of the latter and love it or hate it?
What about stainless steel tubs? A salesman once claimed those machines tend to be quieter, because they’ve got better insulation. I suspect it’s hogwash, but the higher-end machines with more nifty features like adjustable racks tend to have them anyway.
Sigh. Sears is usually our go-to for stuff like this but we just spent 3 months trying to get them to fix our clothes washer (they finally seem to have succeeded… at least for a bit) so I’m a bit off on them right now.
