I love my ASKO.  It is huge inside and very quiet.  When I first got it I had to keep checking it was on because I couldn't hear it!  biggrin.gif   I was deciding between Bosch/Miele and ASKO and went with the ASKO in the end because the arms and runners are stainless steel instead of plastic.   They are all good machines though IMO from what I gathered in my research.
My Mum has the Bosch with the cutlery drawer and I much prefer the basket - so does Mum now she's tried it.  I guess, like washing machines, people have different things they like and dislike.

I have Miele, and after having several other brands over the years, I can't imagine I will ever go with any other brand again. It has a cutlery drawer which I love, but TBH it's only really useful if it's next to your cutlery drawer so you can put the clean cutlery away easily (which in our case it is). The link is for the same one I have.

We have a Bosch (7 or 8 yrs old) & have had no problems.  It does have plastic runners & baskets though if that is a decider - but we have needed no servicing or had problems.  Its reasonably quiet too & a full wash cycle takes between 45 mins & 1 hour.  Had it all this time & not absolutely certain about this (cycle times) but I would def recommend.


ETA - forgot to add my minutes original.gif

ASKO all the way. It is so quiet I often go to put dishes in it when it is on. Also mine has no buttons on the outside so my DD can't turn it on

On the advice of EB I recently purchase a Miele and love it. Its so quiet and cleans everything really well.

It was well worth the extra expense.

I have a meile, and I must be the only one that hates it.  I am forever putting more rinse aid in and of late it hasn't been draining, even after removing filters and scrubbing them etc.  I use dishwasher cleaners too to keep it clean.  I don't know what I'm doing wrong.  But it's just a year old and I swear I had little to no problems with my much cheaper and older westinghouse. 😠

This is me too. I have had nothing but trouble and has never cleaned the dishes well. I do like the cutlery draw but that's it.

We bought a Bosch recently and love it.  Very quiet, love the cutlery drawer, the dishes come out clean.  The 29 minute cycle is good enough for most loads.

We went through this process recently with my MIL. I think any of the brands you've mentioned could be good, although i'd stay away from the lower end bosch machines made in turkey, as i believe some of the interior is plastic rather than steel. We took a sampling of her largest/most awkwardly shaped and most frequently used pots and serving dishes, plus a mug, wine glass, bowl, plates etc to a shop with a wide range of floor stock, and started seeing how things fitted in. It was a bit of a circus but made the decision much easier. Also look at where you can put sharp knives if there won't be a cutlery rack. Also try getting to and cleaning the filter. We've had an asko and 2 mieles including the current base model in the family and been happy with all of them. Good luck!

We bought a Smeg - not real happy with it so wouldn't recommend it. Poor design inside so it's frustrating to load. Plus not always real happy with the clean either.

Thankyou for you help so far yes i remember ready ASKO was a good brand too. Will have to look st those:) Want it to be stainless on the outside too:)
happy to spend around the 1k mark
We have a westinghouse in the place we are in atm and its been playing up for the last 4 months only works when it wants too!

I bought an Asko last month and am rapt with it. It gets the dishes so clean (compared to the Dishlex I had before, I guess anything was going to be better!). It is on sale at the moment for $1099 (stainless steel model). And in some models, the top of the cutlery basket can be converted to be used as a cutlery tray (I haven't figured out yet if it applies to the model I got - D5424SS - but I don't think it does). It is also all stainless steel inside (rather than plastic like some of the Miele and Bosch models).

asko!

In order I would go Asko, Miele then Bosch (depending on how much you want to spend).

I love my Bosch. It was a really good price from Good Guys as well. It's not top of the line, but it does the job very well!

Asko definitely. We have a Miele presently and I can't wait for it to die so I can get another Asko instead. They're awesome.

We pulled out the quite new Bosch that was in the house we bought and put in a Miele. The Miele is so much quieter, I love the cutlery tray (you sort when the cutlery goes in so you don't have to sort when putting away), and I love the extra room in the bottom from not having a basket in there.

We own quite a number of Miele appliances (they used to have friends & family sales  tthumbs.gif ) and have never had an issue with any of them. My parents have had their Miele dishwasher a lot longer than us and have also never had an issue.

We have had a few different brands over the years. We now have a Miele, have had it 2 yrs and it's brilliant. Love it! Love the cutlery tray. All the others we had had the basket, the trey is so much better.

Before that we had the FP dishdrawer for many years until it died. It was good too.

My friend has an Asko and often has problems with it.

Nope, I do too.  The one in our current house (which is a rental) is a useless pile of rubbish, doesn't do a good job, has no indication of how long any of the cycles are and they all seem to take forever.  DH put it in the shed at the weekend and put our own in, which is an LG.  I'm not normally a huge fan of LG, but the dishwasher does half loads, top or bottom, and has a cutlery basket in the bottom as well as a cutlery tray that I use exclusively for the sharp knives. I can get far more dishes in it than the Miele, it's no louder, it has a child lock and tells me how many minutes are left to go.

BIL has the F&P drawers and I'm not a fan of those either.

Of the dishwashers we've had, the Asko was the best, by far.  The worst has bee F&P dishdrawers.

My cousin recently bought an AEG and loves it - it was one of the few that could fit her large dinner plates.  Similar quality and features to an Asko or Miele.
