New dishwasher

A couple of weeks ago our dishwasher started to smell funny. Then it started to smoke. I figured that was probably a sign. We’ve never really liked it– when we bought it, we were lured by the promise that it was “virtually silent”. It turned out that meant “you can’t really hear it if you’re in a neighboring state”. It was crazy loud, although at least it had a delayed-start feature we used to fire it up a few hours after we’d cleared out of the downstairs.

Anyway, smell, smoke, and noise was enough to force us to buy a new dishwasher. After some internet research I picked one, we ordered it, and despite a few hiccups in the installation process, it’s in place and we used it for the first time last night.


This one really is virtually silent. I didn’t even know it was running, and I was standing right in front of it. Pretty awesome. The online reviews were very positive, so hopefully it lasts a long time…
