I am just a lazy male teenager so can't add much value to this thread as I know very little about what goes on in the kitchen. However I believe we have one of these dish-washer thingies in the kitchen and my mother always seems to be shouting abuse at it. We live in a very hardwater area and the thing always seems to be breaking down. I remember we used to have a real old one (hoover I think) which eventually gave up and was replaced by this one (hotpoint). It's been a nightmare - dishes come out dirty, thing is always getting clogged up, and I blieve the pump has gone on at least one occastion.

Our Hotpoint has been on nearly every night for the past 5 years and I think still washes as good as it did when new.

It has however started to put a lot of 'bashing' and 'crashing' noise through the plumbing lately, so I'd imagine we'll wake up to a puddle one morning soon.

7 years with a hotpoint and never one whiff of a problem. Although when my wife loads it she virtually washes everything before it goes in so nothing clogs the filters. Whereas I and the kids just load it up and don't care. Managed to smash a few glasses in it but thats not caused a single problem yet. More reliable than the Hotpoint washing machine I bought at the same time which is now scrap.

Gonna go for one of these:

http://www.trade-appliances.co.uk/_6...GV53E03GB.html

It's got an anti flood device. Water leaks into a bottom pan and lifts a float (sound like a bilge pump) this intern isolates the water supply at source and was told that is installed correctly then if water leaks at the connection and dribbles down the water feed pipe this will also fill the pan and lift the float which then alerts you to a problem......Apparently .

Sad aren't I . Will be up the Church next week on Monday if anyone wants to talk Kitchens
