Okay, so having read the "Does a dishwasher change your life" thread, I am now convinced!

Could anybody recommend a specific one please? Are they easy to fit? We already have the pipes for one, from the previous houseowner.

Please - I want to change my life!

Get a Bosch one, they last donkeys years and are really simple to operate.

Make sure you check the width of the space though, they come in different sizes.

i have a bosch one, it's good. the detergent drawer's broken but that's the first thing to go on any dishwasher. don't know about fitting one though, i guess the water pipe bit is easy, dunno about the drainage pipe thingumy.

Brilliant - I was wondering about Bosch (have a Bosch fridge) and you've confirmed that. So if the supplier (am thinking John Lewis) doesn't fit it, how does one go about getting it fitted please? Sorry to be dim!

Miele. I had a thread asking about them a while ago and all the Miele owners raved about them.

Failing that, have been happy with Bosch in the past.

I've just bought a Hotpoint. Go for the A ratings.

Ooh Comet fit them do they? That is useful to know. JL used to but don't seem to anymore.

I have a bosh one too.

As for fitting the waste pipe fits into the same one as the sink waste.(you can buy the U bend thingy with dishwasher attachment from B & Q)

The water is supplied from your cold pipe from the sink (a self seating tap kit)

I have a Bosch and like it a lot.

Bosch Exxcel, the one with the metal bottom not plastic.

It is ace, not too expensive to buy and will last forever, ours is great and cleans stuff perfectly.

PavlovtheCat Sun 14-Sep-08 20:22:08

DO NOT buy a hotpoint anything !

here you go The Miele is fab, the cutlery tray at the top is wonderful. I am sad to like it so much, I know!

MutantSpaceGoat Sun 14-Sep-08 20:27:23

bosch! look on ebay people are always flogging them so they can put in integrated (no one must know the shame of my white goods) ones.

GreenEggsAndSpam Sun 14-Sep-08 20:36:18

Don't suppose anyone has the Which guide on dishwashers, do they?

I think that Miele and Bosch are good makes, but I would like to see which have the best energy/environmental ratings.

Was about to say that you can't go wrong with a Bosch (have washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher), and have had the former two for 13 years now, BUT the repair man recently advised me (he only came to clear the sock that was stuck in the waste pipe!) not to consider (when the time comes sad) replacing them with the cheaper Bosch ranges because nowadays they're manufactured in Italy, not Germany, and aren't so good. He recommended it's worthwhile paying for the higher end, which are still German, apparently.

Also, depending on how open-plan your kitchen is, my Bosch (and my friend's Miele) is virtually silent. Sometimes I have to open it to see if it's still going, although it does beep at me to say when it's done.
