Glad to hear you'll have a working dishwasher soon Chef Munky.
We can live without them but life is easier when we have them.
I'm happy to report that I just installed a Bosch unit from 2011 pulled out of a demo we just did.
It replaces an "on it's last legs" Maytag I had.
I do gotta say, Those Bosch dishwashers might be pricy but this thing is quite as a church mouse and does a fine job of getting the dish's clean.
