Some of you went shopping with Carol and me last year when I bought my Bosch dishwasher at Lowe's. The old Frigidaire dishwasher had gone to hell. The pump on it was broken. I didn't know how old it was, so rather than spend a fortune fixing it, buy a new dishwasher.
I did all sorts of research. Tons of people said Bosch is the best dishwasher, but you have to get used to it because it's not like American dishwashers (no garbage disposal in the bottom--instead a filter that traps stuff; doesn't get really hot to dry the dishes--use the sanitize button and pour in a little white vinegar).
I could handle that. I found a Bosch on sale at a good price. It did everything I wanted except put the dishes away. I bought her.
|nice black dishwasher in my black-and-white kitchen
|filter in the bottom--easy to remove
never has anything in it, but it gets moldy FAST
I had purchased the five-year extended warranty on electrical crap. I called Lowe's. They sent a repair person. He took out a little tiny piece that he said had broken off the pump. He'd get a new one. It was covered.
He returned a few days later and put in the piece.
She's been out to get me ever since.
After I run her, I never know if she'll have some water sitting in her bottom. I never know if the dishes are clean. They seem kind of scummy even though I use those dishwasher tablets that Big Mama Bosch says I should use. Sometimes the container with the tablet doesn't open at all, so there's this wet, crumbly tablet in it. I have to take it out or move it around or whatever, and then eventually she works.
Bosch, you are a bitch.
I keep thinking I'll call the repair people again, but I'm afraid it won't be something electrical because of the thingy with the tablet not opening. Then the repair person will charge me a million dollars for every fifteen minutes he's here.
Besides, SOMETIMES SHE WORKS! I never know when she's going to work. It's this grand and glorious surprise when I open her and there's no water in the bottom and the dishes are clean and God is in His heaven and all is right with the world.
She is out to get me. If I call and ask for service, then she'll work. Or I'll call and ask for service, and it will cost all kinds of money I don't have.
|Maybe i'll take her temperature rectally.
I want my daddy.
|Daddy would make bad Bosch behave.
I can tell you one thing for sure: I will never buy anything other than a Maytag dishwasher ever again in my whole life. NEVER.
Infinities of love,
Where did you learn that naughty language?
Yeah, I know Frankie.
It's mommy's fault.
