Ahhh yes, the details that count the most. I hate washing dishes by hand. And studies show that hand washing dishes uses far more water than a dishwasher does, & here in California that's important because we often go into mandatory water rationing.

Dishwashers have been made in China for at least the last 20 years. I bought my parts a long time ago & stripped clunkers that neighbors didn't want. It was easy. Now I can't argue that it would be better if they were made in America, but as far as washing by hand, if you love that so much, by all means go for it. Me.... I'm sticking with a dishwasher.

I suppose I could walk to work every day, too, but you go ahead & stick to that one. I'll take my car any day.

And when both of you work together, your sink time is cut in half. Honesty, dish water won't dissolve your hands.

Been hearing stories about Home Depot taking your money online - and not meeting the date. One local - 8 months for a washer. Kept getting the run around as to why it hasnt been delievered as promised when they keep running 'sales' on the same model he's waiting for.

I ordered a dishwasher in 2020, six months later canceling the online order when, due to covid, they still didn’t have a replacement available. I had to go with a different model and a local shop. Still, depending on the appliance it was 3-6 months before they arrived. Took All last year but I’ve got one replacement for every appliance that’s ready to go. A number of items are almost about to break but still haven’t yet. I’ve heard a lot of stories about stalls in the process. Difficulties getting sets for house flips and new homes. Demand is up, supply is down and has been since the powers that be decided to tighten their grip on this country. Buying Whats in stock is nice if your flexible on the look and model. Otherwise maybe get in line somewhere you can still safely leave the line at any time. A couple waiting lists have paid off, more not so though.

Check the cheap models that lots of apartment buildings use. They are usually in stock since they are bought in very large quantities. Whirlpool and Frigidaire

I just bought a washer and dryer set, ended up buying a higher end set for about $2k, because it was the only set in stock that had the right dimensions for a remodel I’m planning. Overpayed, but my existing dryer wasn’t worth repairing again and I needed it urgently.

Not sure, I bought all the lumber I anticipated needing for the next year or two of house projects back a month or so ago when the prices seemed to normalize a bit. Right now it’s all out in my garage while I wait to acquire other materials at reasonable prices. I know the retard in the White House increased lumber tariffs so I expect prices to go back up again now.

I’m a frugal bastard and will start the projects in order of what I get my hands on at fair prices — the washer and dryer are were an exception, but I still landed a Black Friday discount and used some vouchers from my pro account, I paid $2k but MSRP was about $2.6k for the set.

Basically the bathroom/laundry remodel just jumped to the front of the line because I wasn’t going to spend another $400 on repairs after just paying $300 a month ago lol

Sigh. Remembering my first washer. Lasted 25+ years. When it failed I stupidly decided not to have it fixed and bought a new one. That lasted about 5 years. Bought another one ... 3 years in and I might be looking at yet another one. We're not talking about super heavy/too frequent use either.

Went to LazyBoy for a recliner. Everything we wanted was out of stock. We looked at the sofas and the salesman said it would be nine months before they have the one we want in stock.

You haven't been able to get the dishwasher you want for 15 months. Now they don't even have the steel to make any appliance, garage door, etc.

No Joke! Out LG lasted less than two years. Replaced it 6 months ago. Guess we were lucky if failed when it did.

The digital keypad. Two repairmen said cheaper to replace the washer than to fix.

Liver_Kick 2 points ago +2 / -0

I looked into fixing ours but when I looked up the cost of the heater element ($200+) and saw how ridiculous the procedure was I said forget that. That was this summer just before everything was out of stock.

Ten years is about how long they make appliances to last now. Both my refrigerator and my washing machine were exactly 10 years old. They died within 2 months of each other. Just bought a brand new (not refurbished) induction cooktop off of Amazon for $540 bucks. Exact same model that was in the store was $1800 (on sale for $1299), but not available for several months. Not sure what that was about, but I installed my new one last week and it works perfectly. Sometimes you have to look around.

You could always buy a working one short term off FB marketplace. Many people sell perfectly good ones (that look decent) when they renovate their kitchens and switch out appliances. Then when the new one you want comes in, sell your temporary one to get your money back. Or donate it to Habitat for Humanity or Goodwill for a tax write off. You can even write it off for more than you paid for it. A little extra work, but then your wife gets the one she wants and is happy!

When I bought our new dishwasher about six years ago, it replaced a top line LG that I Ioved, but two different motors burned out on it within 5-6 years. The second time the motor went out I bought a Bosch instead of fixing it again. A couple hundred more than some, but I love it. Haven't had one problem, and I can't even hear it run.

2

The local home builders here are telling clients to order the appliances before they will do the kitchen design. This is because if they can’t get what they want for 11 months or more, and opt for something different, then the design might have to change.

Nothing beats an old Maytag. I wish we had kept our dishwasher from 15 years ago. We have had two new ones since, neither get dishes as clean as that old one. Same goes with washers and dryers.

I second the Bosch brand. Had an LG and replaced it with a Bosch. Like it much better than the LG.

The only decent dishwasher out there now is the maytag. With the control on the top of the door. Bought one a few months ago. Friends have it. Also available on the maytag website and they will drop ship it to you. American made

A friend of mind bought a new Dishwasher because of broken pipes with flooding from the deep freeze we had back in February. They just now had it delivered. It took about nine months. The initial date was July they and kept postponing it until now.

Try to hit up local mom and pop stores that deal in appliances. You're better off and they usually have what you see onhand. My parents were in the same boat as you and shopped local till they found something. Plus the money is helping local businesses then too.

My parents just bought a washer and dryer. They said it would be months. It did arrive in a few weeks. Still a huge issue.

Yeah, at best it knocked or will knock a few cents off the gas, never fell below $3.25 in my area... Saw $2.92 on my Thanksgiving road trip in another state, but over $3 the rest of the trip...

I have a 30 year old Maytag dishwasher. I've been fixing it the entire time. I'm probably up to about 15 - 20 repairs, including door seals, control panel, clogged filters, & hoses. I keep spare parts on hand so I can fix it quickly, same as my range. When either of those go down, life is miserable. And I'm cheap.

I don't think LG makes the best ones. It really pays off in the long run to get a Bosch, or whichever brand is considered the best these days. Other brands will start off nice, but get noisy and fail much sooner.

My LG washer and dryer have worked flawlessly for 10 years. And believe me, my wife and kids have tried to kill the washer many times. It just keeps going. A very good machine. Knock on wood.
