Help choosing DW, please

Posted by hartin Dallas, TX (My Page) on

Currently have a 10 yo Kitchenaid DW that is moldy despite repeated citric acid flushes. I have three kids and cook constantly.

I'm thinking about Miele as am not thrilled with KA drying, noise, etc. I am willing to pay a bit more for something that will keep me from having to pre-wash, whose filter I don't have to clean, and that has a softener built in.

Do I have to buy special DW detergent with Miele? Can I use any phosphate free detergent? Are they prone to problems?

I'm not interested in a light, need a DW without a handle and with hidden controls (no clearance in corner). I'm thinking Dimension of some sort. Anyone have one who can vouch for them?

Recommendations? Is Bosch better? I've heard they are good, as well.

I've had so many problems with the KA that I'd like to see the repairman less often. Any help would be much appreciated.
