Fitting dishwaher into rib.

For some time now I have been considering fitting a dishwasher to my rib. To this end I have caarried out some initial trials. The first dishwasher was a hotpoint intergrated. It did well in the first phase of testing which went on for seven years in a relativley easy going kitchen. It broke down before I could fit it to the rib.

It was replaced by a whirlpool dishwasher, after 2.5 years of testing in the kitchen and failing four times I have come to the conclusion that whirlpool dishwashers are not suitable for domestic usenever minder the marine environment, thus I have decided to terminate the first stage of testing with this dishwasher and am looking for a suitable replacement. (Note to self do not fit a whirlpool dishwasher to my rib)
Requirements
1) wash dishes without breaking down.
2) wash dishes without pouring water all over the floor.
3) be intergrated so it will fit into the built in kitchen.
4) please note the wife does not count as an intergrated dishwasher

Regards

leslie

Integrated.... hmmm. Those yokes take you for granted 'cos they know that they're tricky to replace. Mine appliances are standalone. The first sign of trouble and I get out a wirecutter and say "Currys" to 'em.

That usually sorts them.


Bosch btw, the poor man's Miele. Get cracking

Speaking of too much free time...Just going through the whole integrated dishwasher thing as the current De Dietrich is knackered - code for things sometimes come out dirtier than they went in

The combined expertise of John Lewis/M&S on-line swears by Bosch (I will not buy English/Italian white goods) but reminds me that Bosch and Siemens (Hmm, or is it AEG) are one and the same: same product, wrapped slightly differently and made on the same production line, but that one or the other is usually on offer and therefore better value.

Bosch/Siemens/AEG..whatever...they're all the dogs whatsits in my humble Unless you have money to burn, in which case get a Miele or a bigger rib

The previously purchased Bosch washer fits perfectly into our Ribcraft front console

Most Neff kitchen appliances are Bosch under the skin - there's obviously also a bit of rebadging going on between Siemens and Bosch too.

I'd always go Miele given a choice. Quiet, reliable and well designed in my experience. Most of their models are built with a catchment tray and float switch so that if there's ever a leak it'll shut the water off and save your floor from an unplanned wash. They're quite good at cleaning some of the toughest carbon deposits known to man off our bakeware too

SMEG!
Oh I will rephrase.
I have a Smeg dish washer that has never gone wrong in about 8 years of service.

and I belive it could be retro fitted into a rib as it is also integrated.

Probably only a matter of time at HQ. The hot showers are in, the fridges are old hat, the microwave is de rigeur and the diesel cooker/oven/grill is a done deal. Dishwasher - why not?
