This isn't a new thing for me, but the dishwasher we have was with the house when we bought it and I'm guessing it's only about 5-7 years old. They did not have paperwork for it or a warranty, etc., so I'm guessing there. But...it's a terrible dishwasher, and quite frankly, I don't want to buy a new one, nor do I have the time after work (when it starts up again) to wash all the dishes by hand. The glasses all have crap in the bottom, almost like it's being shot upwards from the dirty dishes on the bottom rack into the bottom of the glasses on the top rack. The plates always have stuff stuck on them, and the silverware is rarely clean. I seriously have to scrub stuff before putting it in the dishwasher which is a waste of time, energy, and money/water. Whenever dh is the one turning it on, he puts it on power wash or pots and pans, thinking that it will blast the garbage outta there, but that doesn't work any better than the regular wash. Any suggestions or thoughts? I just hate to pay for a repairman to come out, although, I think I may need to just bite the bullet.
