I still have this dishwasher and it's working fine. It turns out that the problem I had was from freezing! I live in Minnesota and the hose bringing the water to the machine can freeze. So, I have to pull it out once in awhile to blow a hair dryer on it during the winter since I don't run the washer very often. The dishwasher was installed in 2006 and it's still going strong, so I wanted to come back and update my review.
I would still prefer buttons over the knob to turn it on, but thanks to the the comment on my previous review, I turn the knob before I close the door and it works better. That's not how the directions read in the owners manual, however. So - heads up everyone. Turn the knob to the cycle you want before you shut the door.
This dishwasher came with my house and was new when I moved in 4 years ago. I have already had to have someone come out to fix it. I only run it about twice a week, so this was disappointing. It is now broken again. I think I will replace it instead of fixing it this time.
I also do not like the knob to turn it on. You have to twist it past several other cycles to get it to the "normal" cycle and it clicks on and off while you do this. It's a little challenge to stop it at "normal" and not twist past. Buttons would be much better.
