DW60H6050FW, not the high-end "waterwall" model, but on paper it's not too bad.

 

According to the specs, such like 3 spray arms/3 draws/auto sensor/half/half option, it would be more than $1000 if the badge is more fancy like Bosch or Westinghouse. 

 

I'm very tempted. Any thoughts?

Suggest reading reviews. Maybe consumer has done some tests on it.

If you look at the specs on paper it will compare well.

 

But the reputation of a company like Bosch comes from years in the marketplace, doing a very good job...

I have no idea about dishwasher, but heard that Korean washing machine like LG holds it's own against Bosch?

We have a DMS500TRW. It washes dishes well but it's practically falling apart and is less than 5 years old. For example there is no rust proofing so rust is spreading under the paint which is now starting to flake off. The door no longer stays shut properly and often pops open during washing. Not great when you leave it on a wash and go to bed. The cutlery basket broke through in many places. A spring in the door broke so the door is now much heavier. The list goes on. The white plastic has yellowed badly despite not getting much sun. I'm considering taking them to task under the CGA.

I have owned a front loading LG washing machine - the door never shut properly.

 

It would stop the wash part way through consistently. It never leaked, but it was a matter of when, not if.

 

The German made Miele I have now has door hinges strong enough for me to sit on, it's built to last - that much is obvious.

 

Sure everything will break down at some point, but I think quality kit built to do a job a lot better than a product built to hit a price point.

Been using it for 1 week now.

 

Everything works very well, it's quiet and powerful in cleaning, china and glasses are dry right after the eco wash program is finished. I measured that program only used less than 0.6KWh, sure there will be more in colder days. I haven't used the intensive wash program yet, seems like it won't be necessary for 95% of the days. 

 

It's way too early to say about the reliability though.

I'm sure high end Miele is better in build quality than most cheaper brands. But in terms of dishwasher door hinge, LG has the most rigid doors in NZ market. It's much much stronger than any Germany brand, Bosch or Miele or whatever. I looked into this "funny discovery" very carefully in shops and tried most of the display models that can be touched in Auckland. I still cannot explain the reason. I didn't buy a LG because I guess may be for dishwasher a rigid door is not important. LOL.
