If Dyson start banging out dishwashers run! Every time I go to our tip there are lines of them waiting for death.

I was in B&Q one night (to buy a plug, but having recently finished a mountain of washing up), and they were selling a brand of dishwasher I'd never heard of (Homark) for 104 with a 5 year parts and labour guarantee.

It has given sterling service for 6 years, no breakdowns or problems, and I am well chuffed with it. We do live in a soft water area though - but I believe that so long as you keep them topped up with salt, it should be fine.

Am I wasting my time looking or are they realy worth the money and aggrivation .

How do I find a good one from a bad un?

A very confused, and well hacked off Hightower, wishing things would come to an abrupt end
