Dishwasher Cleaning Performance.Today's dishwashers do not require users to rinse their dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, saving water and time -- provided the machine can get all that food off on its own. Users of the Whirlpool DU1301XTV, including one who posted a dishwasher review on Viewpoints, are pleased to find that food-caked dishes come out clean without any pre-rinsing. One consumer who posted a dishwasher review at Sears says the Whirlpool DU1301XTV got her glasses even cleaner than they were before, as though the dishwasher had removed a film from them. But where one consumer says no pre-rinsing is necessary, another insists otherwise. In a dishwasher review on the Lowe's website, a consumer says she has to hand wash dishes after running the Whirlpool DU1055XTVQ because the dishwasher doesn't completely remove stuck-on food.
Complaints about food residue left on dishes, spots on flatware, and milky film on glasses crop up in dishwasher reviews of nearly every budget model. Even using a rinse aid, as manufacturers and users suggest, doesn't guarantee cleaner, shinier, spot-free results. That point is brought home by a very unhappy consumer who posted a dishwasher review of the GE GSD4060RSS, the more expensive stainless steel version of the GSD4000RWW, at Home Depot. Dishes and glasses come out blanketed in water spots and soap film, the user says, and almost have to be hand washed first.
Purchasers of the Frigidaire FDB520RHS have fairly low expectations, based on its price, according to dishwasher reviews. They are pleased that it is just a basic machine that does not, as one consumer says in a dishwasher review at Best Buy, require reading a long manual before you start it up. Handy consumers posting dishwasher reviews at Best Buy rave about how easy it is to install the Frigidaire.
According to dishwasher reviews at AJ Madison, the Bosch Ascenta SHE5AL02UC meets a high performance standard without pre-washing. One user was surprised to find that even baked-on mac and cheese and oatmeal are no match for the Power Scrub cycle.
