    sometimes that terrible whine can be rectified by using a large hammer....

    We have a Bosch Classix, I wouldn't recommend it if you like to use the liquitabs as they get stuck in door and don't melt/release the washing liquid so you end up with semi-washed clothes and horrible white marks when you remove the wet clothes from the drum and the washing liquid touches it.

    I wouldn't recommend hotpoint based on our last machine.

    Why are you washing clothes in a dishwasher?

    We have had a Bosch for 6 years with absolutely no issues ever

    I had a miele that was useless - we were always getting the engineer out to it. We have had a Bosch for the last two years and it has not missed a beat, washes well and does the job. It is built just as well if not better than the miele.

    It's a known problem apparantly, the liquitabs get stuck between the door and the round rubber seal thingy.
    So long as you don't use the liquitabs it's fine, but it's a rubbish design.

    Oh god, I'm such an idiot. I'm blabbering on about washing machines when you are asking about dishwashers. Ignore me.

    Agreed. Had loads of bad experiences with hotpoint, one where we had to use the sale of goods act to come to our rescue. Machine died 4 times in 2 years. Paid for repair with hotpont, which failed 6 months later. Paid for repair with hotpont, but with a 12 month warranty and replacement entitlement. Died within a day. Hotpoint told us it wasn't worth repairing as there was a manufacturing fault. Insurers declined new machine on the grounds it wasnt repaired on first visit (even though it was!) So I went after the retailer for selling me a lemon. They agreed to supply within the hour. Unfortunately, they supplied another Hotpoint. It lasted 2 years, with 3 repairs. Never again. (Had similar hotpoint tales with washing machine also!)

    Dont go with Beko for heavens sake.

    Be warned..... there are two types of bosch machines.

    One is built in Germany (and more expensive) and one's built in Spain.

    You can guess which one to buy and which to avoid!

    we have a bosch great no problems

    Go for the Bosch Exxcel Range, and not the Avantixx or Cheapo Classixx

    I'm the same. I have a 7kg beko washing machine and it's the best I've owned, had a hotpoint another that I cant remember brand but this is by far the quietest and it washes just as well as the others.

    Because I'm happy with the washing machine I then bought a beko dishwasher and I'm just as happy with that though this is my first dishwasher and I have nothing else to compare it to.

    With the exception of Miele, I am no longer convinced brand loyalty means anything.

    Last Bosch dishwasher and wasshing machine lasted 2 years each....not worth the extra paid for this brand IMO.

    Latest dwasher and wmachine, bought cheapest possible (indesit I think) and paid the extra to put a 5 year warrantly on both. Still works out cheaper than other brands, and I have the guarantee of a working machine for 5 yrs. Did the maths and worked out more cost effective in the end.

    Indesit wmachine now 4 yrs old, never had a problem. First time in my life ever taken out warranties, normally not worth the extra but peace of mind for 5 yrs, worth it IMO

    Brand loyalty, forget it. We live in different times now

    Think i saw on which? site that Beko rated very highly.

    bosch seem to be the best ones out there (according to my friend who has been doing all the research before buying one) in the end she went for this one BOSCH SMS63E12GB .. they had a cashback scheme a couple of weeks ago- look online for the cheapest and you may get a better deal if you approach a local trader- or so i found anyway HERE
